Ovulation bleeding ?: If ovulation does occur (with a history of "PCOS") light bleeding may occur secondary to the higher levels of estrogen generated by ovarian stimulation without "regular" periods secondary to PCOS. Also, sometimes two follicles may be stimulated to ovulate simultaneously, again with higher estrogen, the drop at ovulation will result in bleeding.
