Confused?

Hi peeps I'm new on here I've looked up my symptoms and it comes up with PCOS so I was just wondering if mine sound like anyone elses? I'm normally to the dot on periods I'm 43 and give or take a few days it's always been around a 28 day cycle but for some reason this month I'm on my 3rd period all lasting the same as a normal period around a week! I'm only having a few days break in between then I start again. I'm getting abdominal pain but always have that when I'm ovulating and my skin which has always been a nightmare has just flared up even worse with spots think this is what's getting me down the most! Any help would be really helpful I had a swab took 2 days ago so just waiting on that. TIA x

Could it be the menopause rather than pcos, if nothing has shown previously symptom wise for pcos - what is your family history like menopause wise ?

Hi thanks for the reply most of the female side in my family have been late 50's with theirs and the doctor didn't mention to me that could be an option I did think that myself though just really confused with what my body is doing at the minute.

PCOS can flair up if you have put on weight etc. The other option is stress as stress can be a major factor in your cycle as well.

Hi thanks my weight hasn't changed apart from a few extra pounds as it does when I'm on my period anyway but it might be stress as I've just been through a hard break up? Hope it sorts itself out soon I've had enough of all this bleeding.
