Hi i recently got married i am a little overweight and have irregular periods my hubby and i have been trying to conceive for 3-4 months and nothing i was getting my period then but havn't had it for 3 months and when i missed my period i spotted and we only get neg results but my breasts have been sore for few days now i took a pregnancy test the line was really faint positive can i be pregnant and if not anyone have anyadvise on how we can conceive and lose some weight

If you had a faint positive I would test again in like 2 days and I'll bet you get a stronger positive. Your body doesn't produce HCG, what the test looks for, unless you are pregnant. Congrats!

Hi Maria. How overweight are you? If you are not in the obese range I would just start to make sure you're eating healthy and control you portions (no American sized portions - yes I'm American), and don't necessarily count calories but do try to stay within a 2000 calorie range (not over). You are not supposed to diet if you're ttc. However, if you are in the obese range I'd either go see your doctor to help get you to a Nutritionist or check out and try to get to the healty range prior to ttc. Hope it helps.

If you haven't had your period for 3 months than you need to see your dr. I had the same problem and they suspected PCOS. Turns out I don't have it (which is good) but I still don't O (which is bad). I was put on Provera & then Clomid. I conceived my first month on clomid. You may just not be Oing.

PCOS = Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Maria, I missed a period also. I went and saw my doctor and found out I do have a cyst (not sure what kind - but she said it will dissapate on it's own). So, keeping in contact with your doctor even before you conceive is a good option.

Well i went to my doctor about my irregular period about 2-3 years ago and i was checked out and everything was all good. but about 2 years ago the doctors thought i had a misscarriage and they checked me for a tubal pregnancy so i had my fallopian tubes checked and every thing was good too the regular ultrasound and the pelvic one also so do you think there is a chance that i have something wrong?


Melissa - May 5

Maria, cycts can develop at any time. If you were check a couple years ago you may want to go back.

hey maria, i just got married and im a little chunky too lol and we're ttc. i went to the doc and he said im not ovulating so he put me on metformin and clomid. you may want to look into that if you really want to have a baby. good luck!
