PCOS: Your delayed period has nothing to do with the HSG test. It is caused by the PCOS. With PCOS your body has plenty of eggs but has a difficult time achieving a mature follicle and then ovulating. The spotting you are having likely represents a thick lining that is breaking down and slowly leaking out. You should check a pregnancy test first. You may eventually need ovulation induction meds. ...Read more

My fiance and i are  trying to have  a child, I have PCOS. My periods have been known to last two years at a time. Can i get pregnant while bleeding?

Very hard: Patients with PCOS typically have a problem of hormone imbalance that prevents them from ovulating regularly, and causes excessive build up of the lining of the uterus as well (and results in heavy/irregular bleeding). It would be extremely unlikely (almost impossible) to get pregnant while bleeding bc that is not a time ovulation usually occurs. need to see your doctor for help. ...Read more
