Patient :2 days ago I started having some light brown spotting and very mild cramping. This is not usual for me…. I should also tell you that I have PCOS and my last period was in February. At the end of February I started taking HCG shots (Under a physicians watch) to help with some weight loss. I have lost a little over 30 pounds in this time. I have been waiting for a period to come thinking that i have lost enough weight to possibly trigger one. When I google light brown spotting/mild cramping "implantation" pops up. Could I even take a home pregnancy test and get an accurate result? (Because of the HCG injections I am taking?) If it is implantation bleeding would they be able to see anything on an ultrasound. I do not want to stop the injections if I am not pregnant, and I also do now want to get my hopes up that I am pregnant if I am not. (I had a difficult miscarriage of twins a little over a year ago after going through infertility treatments due to my PCOS) Any helpful advice would be appreciated. Thanks so much!
