First some background info. Last July I started bleeding and it never really stopped. It didn't concern me because it was just spotting for a few months sometimes with a week or more in between and I had been under a LOT of stress and that causes me to have extra periods. In October the bleeding became excessive so I went to Dr was put on provera and had a ultrasound that showed polyps. Got into gyno and had polyps removed and dnc done on Jan 20. On my follow up I asked to be put on bc to help regulate and prevent future problems. I had tried it in the past but I always had my period when I should not of ie in the middle of the pack etc so I gave up. I found out later I have Hashimoto's disease.
Now I am a few days away from when I am supposed to start my period and I am spotting pretty good. It is all brown like old blood. I have never had a dnc done so do not know what to expect for this period. Should it be normal, light, heavy etc? I have decided to skip the last two pills in my pack so that my period may start. I have had very bad cramping this week and my ovaries are hurting which is easing up with the spotting so it is my hope that if I actually start it will stop or at least ease. I also have pcos. I am waiting to hear back from my gyno but do not hold out hope that I will be contacted before Monday so any advice will be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
