    Default Spotting for 2 weeks, no period for 4 months

    Hi I was diag with PCOS a couple of years ago and my periods are always irreg. About 2 weeks ago I started spotting like i was going to have a period but it never started, I did have 2 small episodes of gushing blood with clots. I have a drs appt in a week but I am still concerned bc I am still spotting off and on. I am thinking it is my PCOS and since I haven't had a period in 4 months it is just my body trying to get on a normal cycle. I also have been having hot flashes at night. Any advice or experiences would help helpful . Thank youl

    Are you taking any medication for your PCOS? Some of the other girls have had similar issues when on certain meds, but I don't remember which ones. I'd suggest posting this question somewhere in the 'Do You Have This Problem' group, or depending on the medication, it's dedicated group.

    I hope you can find the answer you are looking for!

    I had the same thing when not on meds,spotting, clots, hot flashes @ all times of the day, brown spotting, red spotting, pink spotting. Sounds very PCOS-ish to me. Let us know what your doc says.

    Sounds exactly like what I am going through. I havent been officially diagnosed yet...but have all the major symptoms. Like you Ive been having a lot of the spotting and not an actual flow. There are a couple times where it would get heavier when clots would come out, but thats about it. Last time i thought i was done...no spotting or anything for a couple days and then out of nowhere a clot came with heavy bleeding for a couple hours and that was it!! Its so frustrating!! It seems its the body trying to start the cycle but just cant quite get there!

    I'm getting hot flashes too... Never again will I look at women in menopause and think, "That's not so bad".

    I went back to the dr she says its normal, The past year I have been getting pap smears every 3 months because of a bad one with pre cancer cells almost a year and a half ago. So this concerned me, she says its my PCOS and she was happy that I was at least trying to get a period. She put me on Metformin said to try it for 8 weeks and come back and if I couldn't take the spotting all the time to come back in and she will get me on birth control.
