Almost 4 months of my period?

User Profile
I was recently diagnoses with PCOS. I had an internal ultrasound along with extensive blood work and a 24 hour urine collection, all came back normal. I went 7 months without a period, which brought me to seek medical attention at which point I was diagnosed. Back in June 2011, I did get my period (or at least what I thought). It has not stopped since. Almost 4 months of my period. Some days are lighter than other, but recently it has been heavy with BIG clots. Please help! My doctor is telling me not to worry, but I need some answers.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the altered bleeding/prolonged bleeding that you describe without examining you and going ahead with looking at your further investigations results. Do not ignore your symptoms. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician at the earliest for further evaluation and assistance. You can also consider taking second opinion from another gynecologist and proceed with further management as appropriate. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
