    Nah I didn't. They don't tend to do an internal exam unless it could be serious (which it isn't I'm sure)
    Thank you

    1) If you had pcos your periods would have been irregular from the start, from my very first period they were really heavy, painful and would turn up unannounced
    every 6 months or so.


    2) People with pcos find it v. difficult to lose weight, obesity is a common symptom.

    3) Stress can be reason for you menstual cycle changing or becoming a little irregular.

    I doubt its pcos, but it is worth getting checked out. I understand it is embarrassing but you must tell your GP about the periods, she will have heard it all before and she will be able to help.
    Thank you for your reply. That's reassured me a little, thank you. I know I should tell him about the periods but I get nervous enough going to the doctors as it is, silly I know! My periods haven't been regular since about July though :/ Does anyone know if diet can have a big impact? I've read that too many carbs can be bad? Especially as I haven't been eating meat/fish at all. I guess an average week would see me having a huge plate of smash and a whole tin of beans at least three times. Then baked potato or mash and veg the rest of the time. I'm trying to eat a more varied diet now in the hope it'll put things straight. I was due on the other day and hope this isn't tmi but I've had increased discharge, a few crampy type pains and sore boobs, also been irritable but my period has yet to come.
