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.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about abnormal bleeding:

Has anyone else experienced prolonged bleeding while having PCOS?

I've gone from rarely having periods to getting long ones every three weeks. Should I be worried?

I haven't had a period in months then finally got my period then very heavy with BIG blood clots. Is this normal? Has it happened to you?

Here are some conversations about abnormal bleeding:

I am still bleeding every day. It's getting unbearable now.

All of a sudden I’ve been bleeding for 11 days and the longest I’ll usually bleed is 6-7. Has this happened to anyone else?

I have an IUD and am on estrogen pills and bleeding heavier than before. I feel so emotional.

I started my period literally 16 days ago with some spotting and have been either bleeding or spotting since then. I've had everything else that comes with periods too! I'm not really sure what to do.

Can you relate?
