No periods
I am 33 years old, had 2 children (last one is almost 2) in the past 3 years. I am not using any contraceptives. My periods are very irregular and skip 2-3 months at a time although I still get the usual symptoms like swelling of the abdomen, sore breasts and sharp pain in the left side of my uterus/ovaries. I was diagnosed with PCOS and had endometrioses removed before I fell pregnant with my first child 3 years ago. Could this be the same problem? Any other advice will be welcome. Thanks.

It sounds liike the PCOS causing you not to ovulate. If you are not planning another pregnancy soon, the Pill would be a good idea.
