? coincidence: B"sd PCOS is ofter accompanied by missed periods, sometimes for months to years. Periods could come anytime and are not predictable. So one possiblity is that your period came and had nothing to do with the Herbal Medicine. Now you are back to the missed periods. There are many different kinds of PCOS and the best treatment depends on the individual hormone situation. Just decreased my rates!
