Call your MD: With PCOS, sometimes the ovary does not ovulate. That causes a hormonal imbalance which prevents the uterine lining from shedding off completely. This is typically due to a lack of progesterone, and you can get a prescription for that which will stop the bleeding then cause the lining to shed off to reset your cycle. You should also do a pregnancy test if you have had unprotected sex.
