Brief Answer: WAIT FOR 3 - 4 DAYS, ELSE TAKE MEPRATE COURSE. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. With polycystic ovarian disease, often a normal period does not occur. What happens is spotting / scanty bleeding. This is because there is hormonal imbalance, and the full thickness of the lining of the uterus fails to get shed off. Hence, the spotting could be quite normal. I would advice you to wait for a few days ( 3 - 4 days ) , to see if the spotting progresses into a proper period. If it does not, then take the course of Meprate as advised ( since you have not had a period since August, the uterine lining must have built up by now ) - to induce a proper withdrawal bleeding. Hope this answer helped you. Take care, and please feel free to ask for further clarifications.

Brief Answer: GO TOMORROW ITSELF. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thank you for your appreciation. If you have been asked to come on the second day of the period ( for any investigation or any kind of treatment ) , then you should go tomorrow itself. She herself would assess the status of the endometrium ( lining of the uterus ) and guide you accordingly. Take care
