I also have PCOS and had very irregular periods, as bad as every 2 weeks with spotting the entire time in between. I went to a Dr becasue DH and I were trying to get pregnant. He solution was to go on BCP for 3 months and my periods would get back to normal. She wouldn't even test me for PCOS even thought I have all the symptoms of it. Just told me I was fat, needed to loose weight go on BCP and I would ovulate. SO I was stupid and with an HMO so she was the only OB/Gyn in the practice. I was regular while on the BCP but as soon as I went off it was the same thing with regards to AF. It was not until I moved and saw a great OB/GYN who listened to me prescribed metformin and bam my periods were normal. Mind you I still needed Clomid to ovulate which was not sucessful because my tubes are both blocked. If you made it to the end..thanks for listening to my story, and I hope you get some answers soon.
