Abnormal Bleeding !

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Hello Everyone!

Has anyone else experienced prolonged bleeding while having PCOS?? I’ve had this “period” since December 2017 and was recently put on birth control to stop the bleeding due to becoming anemic. I’ve had a Pap smear and it came back “normal”. Is there something out there (besides birth control) I can take to stop this issue?

Thank you,
Monica

Anybody Notice Emotional Changes When Starting A New Birth Control?

I recently started using Nuvaring and i have found that my emotions are all over the place.

Please advise...

Yes, the hightened hormones really can effect someone emotionally. Think of a pregnant woman - she can easily be emotional in any direction.
