Post subject: Could it be?
Hi all, i'm new to this site and was wondering if you could help. I stopped oral contraceptives for medical reasons in December 07, my last af was 16/7 but they have been quite irregular since December, for example, 1st was 2 days late, 2nd on time, 3rd 8days late, 4th 5 days late, 5th 24days late, 6th 3 days late now this one 6 days overdue atm. I don't usually get any af symptoms other that being moody apart from one area of my right breast gets sore 9 days before, I had a lump drained last November and this has been an af symptom ever since! However, this month i have had that pain now for 11 days accompanied by very tender breasts which felt very heavy but this doesn't seem as bad today but the other concern is that in January 2005 I had to have physio for a nasty bout of sciatica and have had no problems with it since the treatment 3.5 years ago and suddenly yesterday its back on one side and very uncomfortable. Do you think this may be an early sign? I didn't have any positives with my other 2 pregnancies until period was 6 weeks late, one was a miscarriage and the other a live birth. Any ideas??? Thanks

Welcome to askbaby. If you suspect you are pregnant and know that home tests do not work until 6 weeks it might be worth asking your doctor for a blood test, especially as your cycle has been a bit all over the place. Hope it goes well for you.

As other ladies have suggested, get yer self off to docs and get a blood test done then you will know
Good luck chick
