Hi, I'm on clomid and have had some weird symptoms. I have had blue veins showing on my boobs running down the my nipple and there very sore. I had my period last month but it was only 3 days and then it stopped which is very weird for me. I have had slight nausea and even more frequent urination. I have taken 3 pregnancy test and all came back negative. Should I worry these symptoms are from the clomid or pcos or could I be pregnant?

I am four days early for my period, and have tons of pregnancy symptoms, as I just miscarried 7 months ago. I have very very sore breasts which I know can occur for PMS as well. However, 4 days prior to period with other symptoms I have dark brown spotting and have had 1 small dark brown clot, and no cramping accompanied with it. I bled with my first pregnancy as well and had "ghost periods" before miscarrying. Can implantation blood contain any clots?? Really don't want to get another BFN and face the facts and start my period early any advice?

I'm probably the ONLY guy on here. My girlfriend has had THREE brief and spotty "periods" in the past two months. They are USUALLY eight days long, but each have been only TWO days long. June was heavy the first day, light the second and stop, the same with the past two. She's eating more, she has been dizzy nonstop since early June, and while she hasn't vomited, her stomach has either been hurting or sour-or both. I THINK her areolas are darker, if I remember and I THINK she said her breasts are a little bigger. Am I right in this? I want her to get a test, but she lives at home because she has cerebral palsy and she's 37. I would drive her to the drug store MYSELF, except for one little problem.....WE'RE OVER 1100 MILES APART! I suspect that's she's pregnant and I want to bust my ass to make sure that things are done correctly. I've asked her to get a test for TWO MONTHS and I NEED ADVICE. I'll take the shotgun blast as it comes if I'm right. Thank you.

Hey everyone, I'm sending myself crazy. I have pcos. I've been on and off metformin the last 2.5 years. My dr put me on slow release metformin and I've had two 28 day cycles with a perfect period!! Now I'm 11 days late, I have symptoms and everything like sore boobs, nauseated, tired etc. but 3 tests later and still negative I'm sending myself depressed.
