I am trying to get pregnant and I came off the pill in march. I came on as normal that month then 28 days later had another period. Now it is May and I have not come on. I am not pregnant although I felt pain in my left side around day 14 so assumed I had ovulated. Is it possible to ovulate and not have a period? Last time i came off the pill I had no period for 9 months. The doctor said I may have had pcos but I was not tested at the time. Could my missed period be a symptom of pcos? Is it too early to see a doctor with this problem? I know it can take a normal healthy couple up to a year to get pregnant but what if i'm not healthy? Karen

Hello K

I'm sorry you are having a hard time. First I'll say we have a page on PCOS that you may find helpful: http://www.empowher.com/condition/polycystic-ovarian-syndrome

A missed period can be caused by many things. PCOS, stress, dietary issues. It would be really hard to guess at the cause.

It is never too early to talk to your gynecologist about issues with your menstrual cycle when you are trying to get pregnant. Many ob/gynes think it is a good idea to have a check up prior to attempting to conceive just to discuss optimal diet, make sure your exam is normal, etc. In your case specifically, since PCOS was floated as a possible diagnosis, you have a history of amenorrhea, and you are again cycling irregularly, I think seeing your gynecologist is a very good idea.

Thank you for visiting the site. Please let us know how you do.
