No Period For 7 Months

No Period For 7 Months

Hi. I am writing to ask you what you think about this situation. My daughter is 22 and used to get her period, but was irregular. All of a sudden she stopped getting it for months, was on birth control but hated the side effects so I took her to an endocrinologist who felt she had PCOS based on all the blood workup that was done. She put her on Metformin and my daughter started to get her period again but then it stopped. Right now her metabolism is good, her testosterone levels are good… read more

Bleeding With The IUD And Now The Ring.

Bleeding With The IUD And Now The Ring.

Hey ladies,

Today is a rough day. I have been fighting bleeding for the last month and a half. Here's the kicker, I had an IUD since last June and recently had it removed due to the amount of bleeding I was seeing. I went right into the neuva ring and am still having quite a bit of bleeding.

Anyone else experience this?
What did you do?

Keep your heads up ladies!

A myPCOSteam Member said:

Hi! I am new here. But I too get abnormal bleeding. Birth control didn’t work , neither did metformin. I feel like I wanna give up.

So I’ve Had Like This Twinge Like Pain Sometimes In My Lower Right Abdomen Even When I’m Not On My Period/ovulating It’s Always Been There

So I’ve Had Like This Twinge Like Pain Sometimes In My Lower Right Abdomen Even When I’m Not On My Period/ovulating It’s Always Been There

It seems to hurt when I’m lying down or turn a certain way. Could this be because of an awkwardly positioned cyst?

A myPCOSteam Member said:

I get this too. I figure it's just part of PCOS and roll with it. Maybe ask for a scan? x
