My DD is 10 months old and I've just come on my first period since falling pregnant. I'm still breastfeeding so was expecting it to take a while for it to arrive. I have PCOS and periods before having her were very light and irregular, a symptom of the fact I wasn't ovulating properly. (It took 10 cycles of clomid to conceive her).
I just wondered if other PCOS people found their periods were the same or different after having a baby? This period seems much of a normal heaviness so I'm really hoping my body might have magically sorted itself out!!
Mine were normal for probably about 18 months after dd was born, in that they were quite regular and had period symptoms. They then becaem irregular and I would not get period symptoms each time. My dd is now 4 and a half and I am 7 months pregnant with ds but needed 4 rounds of clomid. Think we left it too long to start ttc.
I have polycystic ovaries - no symptoms, though, and I only know I do because they were seen by a surgeon during an op years ago.
Anyway - my periods were very, very irregular from when they started right up until after I had DS, 16 years ago. Since then they have been every 28 days on the button. No idea why - but in my case, pregnancy seemed to kick start something hormonally, and maybe that will happen for you.
My periods came back when dd1 was 6 months and were regular until we conceived dd2 9 months later. Dd2 is now 2.7 and my periods were on a regular 32 day cycle until this month...now on day 41and no sign of a period
I think its pretty common to be regular fora year or two following childbirth before the pcos rears its ugly head again.
PCOS is not something that goes away of its own accord; the cystic follicles on the ovaries always return. It can be managed but there is no one therapy or treatment that will make it go away completely.
