PCOS - periods(1 Post)
Hi, not sure if I’m posting this in the correct place I’m new to this! I was wondering if anyone had a similar experience to me. Since I was young I’ve always had terribly irregular periods and signs of PCOS so I started talking the pill a year or so ago but I was worried it was masking my problems and would limit my chances of conceiving in future if I didn’t try and sort out what was wrong with me so I stopped taking it last month. When I stopped taking it I had a typical withdrawal bleed a few day’s after but then expected to go back to being very irregular again. However 28 days later my period came and I’ve just finished a normal 5 day bleed and am hoping it will be the same next month. So I guess what I’m asking is did anyone who suffers with PCOS or irregular periods find the pill actually helped their periods regulate? I’m worried things are going to go back to before after a few months.
