irregular periods
Ever since i've started menstruating, i havent had a regular period cycle, i thought it would get better as i got older. im 28 now and still very irregular, sometimes i will have my periods 3 0r 4 times a month but the bleeding is not much, sometimes i skip a few months and once for almost a whole year i had no periods. I've been to a gynae and he said that i polycystic ovaries and put me on brith control for 6 mnths, when i stopped the pill i had regular periods for 6 months and then it went back to its old way. Please advise me

If you have PCOS, your ovaries are not functioning normally. The treatment is to stay on the Pill till you plan to have children.
