Hi, im feeling a little confused! I'm 28 and have never really had a normal menstrual cycle. Although i was pretty normal from around 14 to 16 then they were very rare if at all. Then being on the pill until i was 22 obviously made this hard to notice and was sort of forgotten.
Since i came off the pill 5 years ago i rarely had a period. Maybe 2 a year and they were a few days barely any trouble. I put on alot of weight since the age of 20, maybe 6 or 7 stone. This past year or so i noticed dark hair on my face and neck etc. I went to the doctors recently as this year i had a very short but heavy period in January and nothing else until 7th July last month. Unfortunately i have been bleeding since then. When it had got to 3 weeks i went to the doctor. I decided to see what was going on as a nurse had previously said to see my GP about the abnormal periods etc. She suggested hormone bloods and a pelvic scan etc. She said she thought it may be pcos. The only thing i was worried about was the length of time bleeding. So i went away had blood tests. My scan is in a weeks time. But i returned after my bloods as it requested i seen a doctor as the results were abnormal. He explained my thyroid was slightly low but my sex hormone was very low and with the other symptoms this suggests pcos and the scan would confirm this. But i said i was worried as i was still bleeding. I have looked pcos up and i'm not sure if the constant bleeding is related to this. Now it's been around 37 days bleeding and i'm really worried. I know i will find out more next week at the scan but i wondered if anyone had this to with pcos. At the time of seeing my doc he did'nt really explain alot and said he would need to talk to a colleauge. But told me about diabetes and how i need to look at weight and diet (which i knew as i struggled for such a long time with weight) he gave me a diabetic diet to go by and i'm just worried now about diabetes and finding a balanced diet all at the same time. He said he was'nt sure of meds to give to give a regular bleed and so i went away hoping for some more info at my scan.
Sorry this is so long, just want it to make sense. Overall i'm mostly concerned about the length of time bleeding more than a anything at moment. I feel annoying going back again when my scan is very soon. Just wanted to know if this is normal with pcos.
