I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2012 after having a transvaginal scan.
I was tried on the combined pill, injection and the implant because of severe pelvic pain, none of which agreed with me so i was put on POP (cerrezate).. it completely stopped my periods for over 3 years but i have had a period every month from august 2017 sometimes 2 a month, I've always suffered from extremely heavy periods so i know what is 'normal for me but sometimes my period is so heavy that I'm actually leaking through my clothes. My doctor advised me to run to packs of POP together until I am 6 weeks bleed free and then drop back to one pill a day. I have been doing this religiously from august but still having heavy periods.
I seen my GP today and she advised to stop the pill for 3 months and then have another hormone profile done.
Should I be worried that something else is going on? I also suffer with severe bloating which no medication helps with.. it was put down to IBS.
Any advice appreciated.
