Probably not that many years. TCOYF made it sound like it could take up to a year for your body to regulate again, but if it's been three it's more likely the PCOS than getting off the bc. But I can think of at least one person I know off the top of my head who I believe has it and went on to have two children!She's in her early 20s and has pcos. She got off birth control 3 years ago and it's been irregular since then.
I have PCOS too, ever since my period started as a teen, it was never regular. Months to years without a period. They found abnormal cells in my lining last year, that's why im currently on medication. To see if the cells can go back to normal. In the beginning I was told I had a 30% chance of having/ getting cancer. But nothing bad so far.
I just tend to encourage all the women i know to keep up with the gyno. I don't know if BC can affect the cycle for so many years?
And thank you. Even if I never have a child I have many wonderful memories with my nieces and nephews. I won't give up hope tho.
I hope the medication helps the abnormal cells so you don't get cancer!!!
I don't remember how regular my periods were as a teen because I had a terrible time keeping track and it always seemed to surprise me, but I do think it was about once a month. If I have any daughters, I'll encourage them to track early (much easier now than the late 90s with all the apps we have), so if there are problems, we can catch them soonish.
