I was diagnosed with PCOS a couple of years ago after having been on the pill forever, and I stopped having periods on my own. An endocrinologist prescribed me progesterone pills in order to induce bleeding every 3 or 4 months. I took the progesterone pills last September, had a period, and then took them again at the end of January which again induced another period.
About 2 weeks ago, I started getting some symptoms (for lack of a better term) that closely resembled signs of ovulation that I've read about. I had some light brown spotting for about 2 or 3 days, along with an abundant amount of clear but very wet discharge (I thought I had peed myself when I first felt it!). My sex drive went through the roof, and I had some pain in one of my breasts as well. At the time, I thought I could possibly be ovulating, but I was on the pill for so long before that I really don't know what my own personal ovulation signs are.
Last night, I got my period on my own for the first time in ages. I was pretty excited to see it (sounds weird, but yea!), and I got to thinking if maybe I really did ovulate a couple of weeks ago. I know that women with PCOS can have anovulatory cycles, but has anyone had a similar experience? Is there something about taking progesterone pills that can jumpstart ovulation later on?
Thanks for any feedback!
