In brief: See your gyne
The question is vague: I am assuming that you mean that you 've had continuous bleeding for a year. Pcos patients have a hormonal imbalance that can prevent regular ovulation.
This leads to an excess estrogen effect on the uterus. Evaluation is necessary because the xs estrogen usually casuses benign bleeding, but can lead to polyps and even precancerous cells in the uterus.

In brief: Sounds hematological
Prolonged menstrual bleeding beyong 10 days is not normal and ought to be invesitgated.
Pcos is usually a condition where there is minimal menses (the term for it is oligomenorrhea) and is very unsual for a women to have the opposite effect (unless they are spottings and not frank bleeds). I suggest that you see a blood specialist (hematologist) to rule out coagulation disorder.

In brief: Bleeding disorder?
Bleeding for more than a year is well- beyond what a typical pcos patient will have when it comes to irregular bleeding.
You may need to be worked up for a bleeding disorder. Please check with your doctor.

In brief: See your doctor
You have abnormal bleeding likely related to the hormone problems caused by pcos, this needs to be treated to avoid future problems.
