In brief: PCOS

Pcos is notorious for causing irregular menstrual cycles, interfering with the desire to get pregnant and alters you fasting sugar levels much in the way as would a diabetic.
Usually, birth control can help with regulating the menstraul cycles. You may also be placed on a medication called metformin in that will aid in preventing as well as treating diabetes.

In brief: PCOS

You are not ovulating so your having dysfunctional bleeding.
Your body needs to ovulate to have a "normal" period. Mayo clinic has one of the best info sites on this syndrome. Google it and find their site.
