Cramping, back pain, nausea with PCOS. Chances of pregnancy.

Resolved Question:

I am 23 and my fiancé 37, I have been on metformin for two months now for my PCOS, which is working very well. My partner has a reversal done nearly 9 weeks ago. I am now 3 days late for my period, have sore breasts, occasional cramping, lower back pain, nausea  and keep getting negative pregnancy tests. I know I ovulated this cycle as I have been using a monitor, but do not want to be too optimistic! 

Please help

Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com

PCOS is commonly associated with delayed and irregular cycles.
What is your height and weight ?
Alongwith it, conditions like stress, anxiety, exercise, smoking,
drinking, late nights, erratic eating, weight changes, travelling,
change in climate , altitude etc - all this can cause delayed cycles
PCOS can have associated delayed ovulation, hence repeat a pregnancy
test after a week too.

What exactly do you need help with ?
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.

Patient replied :

I was wondering if it is possible to be pregnant, and if it's possible to have a period whilst being pregnant. I wouldn't like to assume that I was straight away just because I have missed a period, after it's regulated. I wanted to know how much of it could be due to medication. My height is 5"4 and weigh 13st after losing my 5% weight as recommended

No its not possible to have a period whilst being pregnant.
Metformin regulates symptoms of PCOS, it does not lead to menstrual delay.
