I'm all new to this, I got diagnosed with PCOS about a fortnight ago after having regular 28 day periods. About this time last year I came off a contraceptive pill since they play havoc with my moods, and I was blessed with a partner shortly afterwards who wanted to have children. I was thrilled, but we weren't ready just yet and wanted to get married first. I ended up taking 3 morning after pills over the course of 7 months, a nuvaring for 24 hours and we were using condoms for a little while.
After the first morning after pill my period started going funny, it would be late by a few days, early by a few days, didn't really think much of it. I just thought it was stress. I also had one or two perfectly regular periods.
Now I get bleeding every 8 days, I thought it was ovulation spotting, but then I was diagnosed with PCOS not by my regular GP and didn't believe it, then I saw my regular GP and it was confirmed. Up until this point, since I'd had my hormones tested 3 years ago, I thought I was pretty fertile.
My partner and I have thrown all our plans to conceive in certain months out the window. It's been about 13 days since we started trying, and since I was started on Metformin only to find I was bleeding again today, just after I thought I'd ovulated.
I'm feeling rather distraught, and I'm thinking of seeing my GP again and getting an ultrasound because I can't keep bleeding every 8 days.
I'm also trying to fit exercise into my Uni schedule as I failed last semester due to worrying about my periods and thinking I was pregnant, when it was just PCOS.
I'd really like some advice. sad
