I've been diagnosed with PCOS for about 6 years now. I originally got diagnosed because I couldn't stop my very heavy period and I was put on BCP's. I stayed on those til about 6 months ago when I decided I had enough of the hormones and I wanted to go 'natural'.
Well, I ended up starting eating low carb, and within 2 weeks I started cramping and then started my period. It was 'normal'. About 5 days long and a medium flow. The next month, the same. Then in January, I didn't cramp and my period came and it lasted 4 days and was very light. February, I cramped like crazy, but my period was 3 days long and was barely more than spotting. March was the same except it was 2 days. And just in April it was HORRIBLE cramping, but then 4 days of just barely more than spotting.
What is going on? My periods are, for the first time without BCP's, 28-30 days apart. The cramping is worse than I've ever experienced (when I was on BCP's I never cramped). But they're light and that worries me. My husband and I would eventually like to start TTC but I'm more just into getting my weight down and regulating my periods.
Anyone have any ideas or ways to induce a heavier period or have a problem similar to this? What was your outcome?
