Default Does anyone have this problem too?

I have PCOS. But for the last few months I have spotted regulary on the same days of my cycle. On or about days 12-14. My cycles range from 30 days to 40 days. So I know that I am not ovulating regularly. I was just wondering if anyone else spots with this diesease. And sometimes I have some cramping around the time when I should be ovulating.

I do too! Sometimes my body goes through the process, mood swings, cramps and general crappy feeling. My DR suggested I take Prometrium to bring on my period if I haven't had it in 2-3 mo.

I havent had AF in 2 years, I honestly don't miss it. I have been off Met for this time too. I go to my endo on the 12, most likely I will be on Met again and AF will be back.

Question Chills and extreme sweating

This is unrelated to the original question but...I have fibroids and ovarian cysts. Although I got periods on a regular basis they were very painful and extremely heavy. I started depo provera early last month because my doctor thought it was a good idea for me. I have been getting chills and night sweats (to the point where my sheets and pillow is wet). Last night I started a period (41 days since my last "real period," although I have been spotting everyday in between). I had a hard time staying warm last night and when I finally did get comfortable I started to feel like I was on fire. I pretty much alternated between chills and hot flashes all night and then I kept sweating. I am not sure what this is related to but has anyone experienced this?? Also, I notice that I sweat a lot when I'm working out, more than any other woman at the gym. It just occurred to me that this might be related to pcos. Any experiences with that??

I have had the chills and night sweats in the past. Back before the doctors knew the name PCOS, they classified my symptoms as pre-menopausal. Now I have to laugh because I was only 19 at the time. No laughing matter back then. Sometimes my symptoms are worse during AF and even if I don't have AF for a month I'd still get the chills/sweats around the correct time. Very weird! I haven't noticed the chills/sweats in a few years.
