I have polycystic ovaries, (PCOS) so I always knew that getting pregnant might be difficult, particularly because I don’t think I ovulate very often.
My husband and I have talked about trying for a family next year, and I thought I’d give it 6 months of very focused trying before going to see a specialist about assistance in conceiving / our options.
I’m still on birth control pills, to regulate my hormones as much as possible, however, I did miss a few pills in the last month. The last two to three days I’ve been having the most awful taste in my mouth – and I can’t get rid of it! It’s like sour milk, or a really ‘off’ metallic taste… It’s really vile.
My periods have been pretty inconsistent, and light, so I’m not really sure when my next one is ‘due’ so to speak… so I’m not sure when or if to test. Do you think this could be a sign of pregnancy?

I don’t really have an answer, but I have a friend who was in her first trimester when she had cramps and called the healthline, and the nurse she spoke with did ask her a lot of questions about her symptoms, one of which was whether her cramps came with a sour taste in her mouth. I don’t know what the connection was ….
BC has a healthline that you could call… 1.866.215.4700 – I’m sure they could tell you if there’s anything you should be concerned about, or whether it might mean you’re pregnant!

There are a ton of more pronounced symptoms of pregnancy than a weird taste. Painful/engorged boobs, cramps, implantation bleeding, having to pee a million times a day, fatigue, dizziness. Are you having any of these? Have you actually taken a pregnancy test? There’s only one real way to know 🙂

Engorged breasts come after the baby is born when the milk comes in and the ducts are not being emptied completely. just clarifying….
and btw…i HAVE heard that some women get that weird metallic taste during pregnancy…not sure why

Thanks for your help bees. Still no period, but I’ve taken a test and it’s a negative. I know that tests can be negative and then positive, but for now, there’s no more symptoms… So think it might just be a false alarm. We’re off pills now, so hopefully there might be some good luck for us at some point!
