In brief: Same
Mostly the same ones you had before you started pills.
Iregular/skipped periods are the most common; acne, facial or chest hair are also very common.

In brief: Relapse
Most women with pcos do get good results for cycle control with birth control pills.
Ehen they decide to stop the pill, most of them will eventually resume the irregular cycles the experienced before using the pill.
