My little sister is 21, and has irregular periods (I have PCOS, so I'm assuming she does too). She recently found out she has a 1 by 3 inch cyst on her right ovary, and has been experiencing menstrual bleeding pretty much continuously for the past 3 months. The doctor put her on birth control and it stopped the bleeding for a little while, and then started again. She seems to think that the bleeding and the cyst are not related.
Do you have any ideas why she's bleeding non stop? I told her to try to get an appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist/OBGYN. She's frustrated and I'll have to say I would be too if I was bleeding that much!
