Hello,

Thanks for posting your query. I have gone through your history.

HCG Diet or Drops contains hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin and very much useful in controlling or losing body weight. But it should be avoided in preconception state while you are trying for baby and try other measures to control body weight.

You have missed/late period for 2 days.Your pregnancy test may give false positive result due to consumption of HCG Diet. Therefore,you should stop/skip HCG diet for at least 7-10 days to clear out hCG completely from your body and get accurate result.

After 10 days,you can again do a home pregnancy test and check the result. If you get a positive result, then an Ultrasonography (USG) lower abdomen is needed to confirm pregnancy.
Other possibilities of late period like hormonal imbalance, irregular eating habit, stress/anxiety, ovarian cyst, thyroid problem, psychological upset, over weight or extreme loss are to be considered if pregnancy is ruled out.

Also follow some basic things:
1) Take healthy diet and avoid spicy/fatty/salty food stuff.
2) Drink plenty of fluids/water and eat XXXXXXX vegetables.
3) Avoid stress/tension by regular XXXXXXX breathing exercise
4) Maintain personal hygiene and rest adequately.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Wish you for good health and successful pregnancy.
Regards,

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?
