Bleeding ALOT!
I started my period yesterday after skipping 3 months. I suffer from PCOS. It's a REALLY heavy flow. I have to change a tampon every half hour otherwise I bleed through. When I take out the tampon I bleed (it drips into the toilet) immediately. Sorry for the drastic info, but I'm worried! I wasnt pregnant so it wasnt a miscarriage. I'm very naucious and have terrible headache as well. What should I do? I will be seeing a fertility expert on the 15th of October.
Thank You for your time!

If you miss a period for a few months, the womb lining becomes very thick. Thus when you do bleed, it is very heavy. this is normal. However, if you thing you are becoming anaemic, see your doctor.
