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.
