I'm really confused. Why would someone deliberately do something to cause PCOS? Yes, it is a natural occurring problem and can happen after having a child. This is known as secondary infertility when you develop fertility problems after conceiving.

PCOS is a complex issue that causes many symptoms. The only way to be diagnosed is to see a doctor. You'll have a blood test, a glucose test (3 hr) and a vaginal sonogram to view your ovaries.

PCOS can cause you to stop ovulating.

It's possible to develope it at any point, and even if you have had children! I have 3 children and was diagnosed with PCOS in Oct up until then i had never had any problem with my periods, but have had cysts on my ovaries before! I got pregnant again in Nov with no medical assistance, having PCOS does not mean everyone who has it has trouble concieving it is just more common when you have PCOS, there are many reasons to skip period though, you should talk with your Dr about it and they can do a blood test to find out for sure. They think I actually had it since before my second baby, based on an ovarian ultrasound they had done back then, but was never diagnosed back then! Good luck

Visit your doctor to find out what is going on. Not having regular periods is definitely a concern that something may be going on! Good luck!
