 I have no idea.  Your “period” must not have been an actual period…. Is this the first test you’ve taken, or did you take a test closer to when you had the period?  I’d just wait until you go to the doctor and can get some bloodwork to find out your specific levels.

 

Out of curiousity, why did you test if you thought you had a regular period just a week and a half ago?

Possibly you ovulated early – CD 6-7 (Nov 25-26) because of the Metformin, and then got a quick implant 7-8 DPO.

vancin86 :  Oh, gotcha.  I’m not familiar with how the medication could impact the timeline, but duchessgummybunn’s reasoning seems reasonable.  I hope they can get you in soon though for a blood test.   That seems like what you’ll need for more answers. <3

vancin86 :  they both seem pretty strong test results and I’m going to say a preemptive congrats!

I also agree with duchessgummybunns by way of timeline and what happened.

Wishing you a fantastic nine months and a gorgeous bundle  at the end of it!

lahela017 :  Metformin helps to regulate hormone levels in patients with diabetes who are suspected of having PCOS. Because it affects both blood sugar (which impacts fetility/ovulation) AND regulates hormones, which directly affects fertility/ovulation, it can trigger ovulation at unexpected times in the cycle. In much the same way as coming off BC triggers a period. Tinkering directly with our hormone levels can lead to all kinds of wonky results. 

Metformin is frequently paired with Clomid to trigger ovulation.

vancin86 :  you either ovulated on the 25th or 26th and quickly implanted, or, you conceived the week of the 12th after you started metformin which triggered ovulation again, and the 20th to 24th was a subchorionic hemmorage from implantation, or you conceived and still bled. Hard to say with it being so wonky. Let us know though when you get a dating ultrasound, interesting.
