@A myPCOSteam Member thank you! and she wants me to wait two weeks to test, im on week 2 now, but no positive yet :( either way i hope its regulating! and i haven't had much information onto what exactly is going on with my body sadly because my OB told me i sounded " crazy" for being too worried about it.

I would say so! Weight does affect your periods, is your doctor recommending that you lose more, do you have to? Hormones also affect your period. If you have high testosterone and high DHEA you will struggle to get a period as well. That was my case anyway. Good luck to you! Your case sounds interesting.
