Abnormal Bleeding and PCOS

Posted on May 10, 2018

Do you suffer with long periods, missing periods, or abnormal bleeding during your period?

On myPCOSteam, the social network and online support group for women living with PCOS, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Abnormal bleeding is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
