Question: I have polycystic ovary syndrome.. now I have spotting or bleeding every couple of days

I am a 23 year old female with normal weight. I have polycystic ovary syndrome (all female cousins on dad’s side have it, may be genetic?). I have had heavy periods since the start of puberty with bad cramping. I have been on different contraceptive pills for the last 5 years in an attempt to reduce pain and bleeding and now on Brenda Ed I have manageable period pain. In the last 6 months I have started bleeding more and more often between my periods, though I have been taking the pill every day. I have been sleeping a lot more than usual (<11 hrs/night) but have to wake up <2 times per night due to urinary urgency. This could be due to stress as I have been working long hours and have deadlines coming up. I am concerned now as I have spotting or bleeding every couple of days and for inconsistent times. In the past strenuous exercise has also triggered bleeding.

this is happening because of the hormonal changes in your body and the medicines you have been taking. such spotting does occur in pcods and untill the spotting is huge or bleed heavily, there is nothing to worry about.
get an ultrasound abdomen and consult a gynecologist
