PCOS And Perimenopause

PCOS And Perimenopause

This is something that isn't talked about much. I am 42 years old and my cycles are changing as I age. In general, they are getting close together. My doctor has run blood work and says that I am not anywhere near menopause or perimenopause for that matter, but I know that can change. I've been fairly regular for about 12 years now, but, I still have many of the other pesky symptoms of PCOS. I am wondering what to expect. Is there anyone here who has gone through perimenopause and can give… read more

No Period

She put me on metformin and it worked, almost right away!! Now two years later & I’m trying to conceive again but i havent had much luck this time even with taking metformin. I havent had my period since June and this is the longest I’ve gone without a period. I am usually 40-45 days between cycles .... but does anyone have any ideas why i… read more

Bleeding After Intercourse!

Bleeding After Intercourse!

Has anyone experienced this before? If so, do you know the reasons why? I have been for a cervical screening friday just gone. This has been happening now for around 6 months. Doctors thought it may be the IUD i had inserted, but i have now had that taken out, but it is still happening. Thank you ladies.

A myPCOSteam Member said:

I sometimes get this if I have a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or just overall dryness. But, if the IUD was recently removed, it could still be… read more
