  • So you started 43 days after your last cycle? If so I don't think that's a problem, just an irregular cycle

  • Not exactly 43 days, but mine was due to my bc. Are you reaching your menopausal age? I know my mom has complained about the length of her cycle as well as how unpredictable it is. Have you recently had a baby or taking any medication or bc?

  • I have PCOS and I tend to go longer between cycles if I have an cyst that's larger than normal. Sometimes the hormones associated with actual cysts can cause your cycles to change. If it happens again and you're really concerned about it, I'd talk to your doctor. Are you currently being treated for the PCOS?

  • No my doctor just told me I had it...I have had it going on four years now and no I am not being treated no body told me you could be!

  • I have PCOS ... and they change all the time... at first ti was regular and then longer and longer in between .... now it is a year between.

  • Yup! A lot of doctors prescribe birth control pills to help regulate cycles and decrease the frequency of cysts (at least the number of the painful ones). There is also a fertility drug that is used to treat it... Actually, I think there are several different ways it can be treated. Have you done any research about it yet??
