Hello

Thanks for writing to us

You should do a pregnancy test with kit at home

There can be a pregnancy with spotting in case of threatened abortion or missed abortion

Other causes for delayed periods with history of infertility can be polycystic ovaries or hypothyroidism

It is better to get all investigations done but before that you have to confirm for the pregnancy and for that urine test and an ultrasound scan is must

Best wishes

Hello

Dear XXXXXXX ,

The pain in breast can be due to early pregnancy or PMS ( premenstrual syndrome )

Chances of PMS seem more in your case

Till you do pregnancy test it is very difficult to suggest anything

If you are not pregnant then you must get your hormone tests done like FSH , LH , Prolactin , Progesterone etc under your doctor's guidance

Till then take foods XXXXXXX in omega 3 fatty acids such as fish oils , walnuts , flaxseed
oil , raspberries etc.
Vit E capsules also help to relieve breast discomfort

Best wishes

Take care
