Hello. I have been...

Hello. I have been having irregular periods for a few years and about 2 years ago my OBGYN prescribed me birth control pills. I was beginning to have a period during the time tgatI was taking it, they were still irregular but they were coming. I stopped taking my pills in September and my last period was in September/ October. I stopped taking them because of the side effects they had on me with secelopibg depression. I have been sexually active with my boyfriend since August. Initially my OBGYN said that I could suffer from PCOS. Since September I still cramp occasionally and feel nauseous but just recently I’ve been feeling really bad cramps, nausea, pressure near my abdomen, gradually milk like discharge but this morning the cramps were unbearable and the discharge was a light pinkish brown. What might be wrong? Also I took a pregnancy test 2 weeks ago and it came up negative.

Doctor's Assistant: Pregnancy test (~pregnant)

Even though the last test was negative? As were the ones I took in previous months?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you used pills? How long have you dealt with the nausea?

I’ve been taking my birthday control pills for 2 years. There was small nausea with the pills but when I stopped takimg then I would still have days where I would feel nauseous

Doctor's Assistant: When was your last pap test, and what were the results? Any swelling, discoloration, or unusual smells?

I have not had a pap yet, I’m 18 in college

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Just that my OBGYN said that I might suffer from PCOS

I’ve also been experiencing sore, tender breast/ nipples, appetite changes, abdominal pressure and some lower back pains. Today is the first day that I spotted and it was light pinkish brown. Could this all still relate to PCOS?
