    My period came. Last month, it was from the 21st of November to the 1st of December. And me and my husband just started trying to conceive two months ago. During that time, I did not have a period until November. This whole time in December, we have been trying to conceive. I took a test at 1:48 in the morning on December 21st. It said negative. Should I take another one when the app tells me to on the 24th? Or should that pregnancy test tell that I'm really not pregnant?

    Last AF was on 11/17. I'm 9dpo on CD 37. According to the app, I ovulated on dec.14th. Today, I experienced right pelvic pains that felt like something ruptured. After a few hours passed, it went away. I took a test this morning and got a bfn. I also have PCOS.
