Thanks for writing in.

PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome is a group of symptoms. Most often there is weight gain, delayed or absent periods and increase in unwanted hair growth. It must be diagnosed by doing test for female hormone levels and ultrasound scan. On ultrasound scan, the volume of ovaries exceeding 10 cc with echogenic stroma and peripherally distributed small follicles (necklace pattern) are hall mark for diagnosis.

Pregnancy in patients having PCOS can go unnoticed for a while due to irregular periods. To confirm pregnancy, I suggest you repeat home pregnancy test at least 15 days after unprotected sex for confirmation.

Your headaches and back pains could be due to generalized weakness or hormonal imbalance.

Hope this helps.

Delayed period may be due to PCOD.
But, if you have doubt ,you can go for ultrasound of pelvis. It is the investigation of choice in early days of pregnancy.
You have already tested HPT many times ,so it is of no use.

Take Care
