29 dpo (tracking bbt), BFN. Cyst? Ectopic? Low HCG?

I am desperately seeking advise or suggestions. I have irregular cycles and often have annovulatory cyles. Because of this, I track my BBT and can therefore tell when I ovulate.

LMP 03-Sep-2017
Suspected Ovulation 13-Oct-2017
Currently 29 dpo.

My temp spikes on the 14th of October, and where previously I had EWCM, it then dried up almost entirely. Within a few days, my breasts got really heavy and veiny as they do typically in my luteal phase. Around 10 dpo, I thought my nipples had darkened and gotten 'bumpier' (they still look this way, as well as very veiny). I also broke out in spots as I typically do in my luteal phase, although worse than usual (spots all over my head, under my hair!). Around 12 dpo, I started light cramping and though my period was on it's way. I did have a tiny bit of brown spotting between 12 - 15 dpo (although super tiny, I had one occurrence most days). I have had more cramping this week. My BBT has stayed elevated now for four weeks. HPT's are consistently negative.

I am now having some symptoms, which may or may not be pregnancy/hormone related. I have that metallic taste in my mouth almost every morning, which I have heard described and never understood before. I also have to wake up to pee most nights now.

I had an appointment with my doctor this morning who said that as my cycles previously have been over 100 days, I should wait until this time period plus two weeks to test!! I worked out this could potentially make me 16 weeks before testing if I followed her advice.

I really believe I ovulated on the 13th, due to the BBT rise and hormonal changes (most particularly my breasts). I don't know what to think now. Is it a cyst? If so will it clear up on its own? Could I be pregnant with low HCG? I've read that ectopic pregnancies don't always show up as positive. Should I be concerned?

I would really appreciate any advice.
