Vaginal spotting, PCOS, dark bleeding. Could I be pregnant?

Hi I had spotting a week before my period was due, my period should have started 24 th October, but all I have had is some dark blood and just a smudging at that, I have done a test but came out negative...I was just a pound shop one so don t know how reliable they are. Could I be pregnant? If not why did I get spotting? By the way I was diagnosed with pcos

Hello Susannahferrie , greetings from . I have gone through your case scenario and I do believe urine HCG test or pregnancy confirmation kit are reliable if pregnancy is inside the uterus. Are you experiencing any lower abdominal pain lately on either sides of your abdomen . It might turn out to be a just another aberrant spotting but please do get a transabdominal sonogram to see the uterus, ovaries and rest of the pelvic architecture. You mentioned you have been diagnosed with PCOS , it rarely produces spotting mostly produces irregularity in periods. It is always better to consult with your gynecologist and discuss in detail about further queries. Take care
