I have pcos that was controlled by oral contraceptives. I changed jobs and lost my insurance about 7 months and couldn't afford the pill from that time forward. My cycle fell into a routine of about 6 weeks and my emotions were more stable except for PMS week. I was able to predict when I'd start based on that. However, I did have unprotected sex once on March 4th and based on the months leading up to then, I should have started my period around the 12th or 13th of March. I never had the emotional PMS week I've come to expect and never started my period. On about the 14th I got extreme nipple tenderness which seemed to die down over the last few days but didn't completely go away. I have had a few other things go on lately that seem to point to pregnancy such as lower back achiness and fatigue. Although I was scared, I took an HPT yesterday but it came back negative and now I'm wondering if I should worry about being pregnant or not. I'm not sure if PCOS can affect HPTs in a way that would cause false negatives and I'm just confused. Any advice anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
