I was diagnosed with PCOS and endometrisos. I lost 25lbs about two years ago and have had normal periods since. I have a healthy three year old so I know I can get pregnant again. The only symptoms I am having is tender breast and slight cramps. My PCOS and endo are very mild so it has never really caused many issues for me. Has anyone else had this and turned up pregnant? Im going nutso over here! I want to wait to see if my period starts before I see my doctor. any advice?

(also we have been trying for 2 years)

I have had my period be 8 days late. Stress, age, other factors, and the natural rhythm of the menstral cycle are all ways that it can cause late periods. My periods have chances since I was younger and they have even changed over the last 3 years.

I would suggest you act as if you're pregnant till you can retest when you're a week and half late. That way if you're pregnant now, you'll already have heathy behaviours started. Or you could see your doctor for a blood test. It depends how soon they will test there.
