With long intervals between "periods", and a history of "bleeding between periods", PCOS is probably the correct explanation. "Bad PMS" with bleeding can be secondary to invasion of the smooth muscle of the uterus with endometrium ("adenomyosis"). Ask your GYN physician about low dose oral BCP's, which will stop ovarian function and aberrant hormone production.
