  • The only possible time you would be ovulating would be before your periods. You might not be ovulating then. Did the doctor talk to you about PCOS? You have the symptoms.

    Go to google and type in PCOS symptoms

  • i agree google pcos. and, you greatly increase your risk for uterine cancer by not having a regular period every 4 months. if your dr. isn't listening, get a new one.
    research insulin resistance, syndrome x, and metformin indications and chromium for pcos.
