Do u have PCOS?

Maybe you can enlighten me....I was told I have PCOS almost 3 years ago when we were TTC. I was on the regualar pill from age 20-26 and we TTC for a year and needed help. After having my DD I went on the mini pill b/c of nursing....was on that for 1 1/2 years and never had AF during that time. I stopped taking it before X-MAS and had slight bleeding on 1/7 (for only a day) and now I have AF again.

My cycles were never normal and the pill regulated me. Am I to assume that I will be getting AF own my own now?

I have pcos and the only time I ever had regular periods was when I was on the pill. I stopped taking almost a year ago and I have had maybe 4 periods. Once they were right on top of each other the last 2 have been months apart. I never know when I'm gonna get my period.

i have PCOS.  i'm on bc now just to regulate myself so i have a period every month.  my PCOS is caused by hormone imbalance.  so taking bc is working.  i wouldn't assume getting af on your own from now on.  you may or you may not.  all depends on what your body wants to do.  i'm hoping after i stop taking bc for the regulation, that i can get pregnant without taking metaformin or clomid.  but who knows, i may just have to.

I know what you mean, I plan to go back on BC in hopes to regulate my cycle then stop so I can get pregnant without other medications too. Thats all in the future though, we can't afford another child for at least 3 years

We are leaning twords only having one child too simply because in the long run it will easier finacially. It's just hard though because everyone expects us to have at least one more.
