PCOS and intermittent bleeding!

Recommended Posts


I am 37yrs old and have had PCOS since I was 13yrs. I have ALL the horrible symptoms, Hair growth,

belly fat, ovarian cysts, and have never had a "regular" period in my entire life.

Well I was 265lbs before I got sleeved March 15th of this year and hadn't had a period for at least 6 months (which is not unusual, I have skipped a whole year before).

Now it's June 2nd and I have lost 56lbs so far (yay) but at the beginning of April I started bleeding almost every OTHER day. Or I would bleed for a day then skip a few days, bleed another day, skip 2 days, bleed a day, skip 4 days, etc.etc.

What I want to know is WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?? It's like my body can't make up it's mind!

I think I liked it better when I did skip months at a time! I never know when I'm gonna go through pants or underclothes, at anytime, anywhere! Very frustrating but also worrisome.

Is there anyone else out there dealing with this ordeal? And if so, do you know WHY it's happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

UGh!! that must frustrating. You might want to make an appointment with your general practice dr but I would say that your body is just trying to figure things out right now. I also have pcos and have experienced many changes since surgery. I too would skip for months and since surgery (6 months now) I have been dead on every month. My periods have been much heavier than before too. And I will have 3 days of heavy, then nothing for a day or two then a few days of light bleeding. When you are burning that excess fat that is stored your body releases estrogen too (it is in the fat stored). So you body is just trying to deal with the extra hormones. If it is bothersome for much longer go see your doctor. Good luck to you. Hope you get some answers.
