Ok it makes sense what your saying but the colostrum in the breast early isnt new for me my last 7 pregnancy i got it way early by four months i had to pump because of engorged breast an my doctor never told me the number of my hcg test she just said it was normal she said i had thicking of the uterus an possible the sac in the ultersound but nor sure I've been having these systoms for about 4 weeks now an they are not giving me a straight answer she checked for menopause an said it wasnt that well she wants me to go see an obygn so hopely they can figure something out because my breast hurt an getting dizzy an light headed all the time nausea an peeing alot I've been pregnant 12 times an i no my body i feel pregnant this would be number 13 i have 6 kids my last one was kinda like this took me 2 months to confirm i think that's what's happening now but not 100% sure please reply thanks in Advanced

Hello kat1974,
The cause for a missed period needs to be found. If pregnancy is not the reason, then what is?

Reviewing your symptoms, colostrum is a form of milk produced by the mammary glands in the breast. It is produced in late pregnancy and the few days after giving birth. Even if you were pregnant, it is too early to produce colostrum, so the breast discharge must be the result of something else.

Also, hCG is a hormone that is produced only during pregnancy. I am confused when you say the results were normal. hCG levels can first be detected by a blood test about 11 days after conception and about 12 to 14 days after conception by a urine test. If your blood test shows any level then you are pregnant, if no levels then you are not. What does your doctor mean by saying the results are normal?

What does your doctor think is the cause of your symptoms?
