Off birth control pills, bloating, negative pregnancy tests, average alcohol consumption, healthy, lower back pain while sleeping. Blockage?

HI, I came off the pill nearly 3 months ago (brevinor) and have not had a period since,though I have had the ovulation feeling and normal discharge . My stomach feels a bit bloated, I have done a pregnancy test and am negative - what can be causing this?? Ever since my first period at 14 they have been irregular, heavy and long. I am now 34 and over the years the pain has mostly disappeared and they are not as heavy as when I was in my teens and 20 s though the ovulation has be come more uncomfortable over the years. I have been spotting through the month regularly for the past 18 months. I am 170cm, 72kgs, eat ok, drink average amounts of alcohol, dont do near enough exercise, but am pretty healthy. In the last few months I have noticed pain in my lower back on the right hand side - particularly noticeable during the night when Im in bed. Is something there that is causing a blockage? I am seeing my GP next tuesday morning but am keen to get some insight before hand. Thanks in advance for you help! kc.

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

You seem to be having polycystic ovaries. That could be the probable cause of you irregular cycles and other complaints. Please get an ultrasound diagnosis to confirm diagnosis.

You are also little overweight. Try regular excercise and diet to loose some weight which might help in getting your cycles corrected.

Please see a gynecologist who will give you pills to get cycles again.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
