I have PCOS and haven' t had my period in 4 months. I was wondering if it were possible to fool my body into menstruation by starting to take a contraceptive pill at the active section instead of the placebo section. Will my poriod start when I reach the placebo pills, or is this not possible?

Unless you are planning a pregnancy, you should be on the Pill if you have PCOS. You should have a period after you have completed one month's worth of Pills.
