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

Regular Periods After Stopping Birth Control?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I recently stopped taking birth control to see if I will have regular periods. I know it will probably take a little while for my body to adjust.
