Hi!
If you were my patient, I would have to tell you that I would be very concerned for you for several reasons.  First, you should stop smoking cigarettes! Second, the period and the marijuana are probably coicidental and not related to each other.  You should definitely continue to work with an ob/gyn if you truly haven't had a period since you were 12.  There may be something more going on than PCOS.  Finally, marijuana is very addicting and because it persists in your system for quite awhile, the addiction is one of the worst to overcome.  I am doubtful that you will listen to me instead of your boyfriend, but you did post here and that is some cause for hope.  I hope at least you will get another opinion from another doctor.
Good luck!
