"PCOS" involves a constant production of estrogen, which can cause irregular periods due to cessation of regular ovulation. This constant estrogen production can stimulate ovarian cysts, and cause occasional heavy bleeding, with intervals of absent menstruation. The treatment is usually low dose BCP's, which stop the ovarian estrogen, and preserve options for later fertility.
