Hello
PCOD usually causes less bleeding.She could be having something called puberty menorrhagia which can be treated with medicines.The PCOS may be unrelated at this point but she needs to have her blood sugar checked and lose weight.See a gynaecologist please.

hello,
pcod is one of cause of amenorrhea means absence of menses.in this age group puberty menorrhagia more common.it is excessive bleeding occurring between menarche and 19 years. In 80% of cases puberty menorrhagia is caused by anovulatory cycles.she need some tests to rule out other pathology like complete blood count, peripheral smear for RBC and WBC morphology, coagulation profile, blood grouping and Rh typing and transabdominal USG. In selected cases thyroid function test (T3, T4, TSH) and hormonal assays including (LH, FSH, Prolactin) .this is treatable. please consult agynecologist.for the pcod she has to reduce the wt and modify diet which will improve the outcome. take care

Hello! I was diagnosed with pcos/pcod at 14, and I am 20 now. I took contraceptives for 3 years, with breaks in between. Since the last few months, I am on homeopathy. My periods have become pretty regular since I started homeopathy. But, this month I didnt take my medicine properly. On 31st March, my boyfriend and i were fooling around. First, I was giving him an oral. He may or may not have touched the tip of his penis. We are not sure if he had precum on his fingers. Rest assured, he did not cum. Now after about 3-4 minutes, he fingered me. I cant say how deep because it was the first time he did it. Now my periods were due on 28 march, and its 8th April today. Since then, I have no yet had my period. Naturally, I was worried. So, I took a pregnancy test on 6th April. It was negative. The thing is, I took it in the middle of the day (after not peeing for about 2 hours) I read online that it should be taken in the morning, or the results may vary. Now, I am pretty worried. What are the chances that I am pregnant? And should I take the test again?
