Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections ; hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test .

With PCOS would a OBGYN REI be the right specialist ?? Doc said will not be going to a Endo anymore

The right doctor: PCOS is part of the training for both an Endocrinologist and Ob/Gyn. However, in actual practice, many docs choose what they feel comfortable treating. Some Endo's don't treat PCOS, and some Ob's don't do much either. You should have a frank conversation with your doc about what you have, what you want to accomplish (?pregnancy, ?less hair, etc) and who in your town is best at treating this.
