I have an appointment to see my gynecologist on June 1, so hopefully I can get some definite answers then. What I am wondering is could someone check out my chart? If you look at the past few months, I've pretty much been bleeding or spotting for 7-8 weeks. I'm still charting just to see if I get any kind of shift but I'm almost wanting to give up because my body is screwed. What do y'all think? Should I keep charting or give up til after my appointment? Also, have any other women out there experience this kind of prolonged bleeding? This is really a first for me... I'm almost starting to wonder if I'm going through early menopause (I'm 29).

I would try your best to keep temping and watching your CM (if possible with the spoting) the more information that you have for the doctor the better. I am sorry I dont know why you would be spotting so much

It's a good thing you have an appointment! There is always a reason for prolonged bleeding or spotting; the trick is finding a doctor who will take the time to find out what the problem is and fix it! Most will just put you on the Pill for awhile, which may stop the bleeding...but doesn't address the underlying problem at all. It will still be there whenever you come off. These guys are really good at investigating reproductive problems! - Welcome to FertilityCare

It could be many things, but I doubt it's early menopause. Have you recently discontinued a hormonal contraceptive?

Do keep temping and tracking CM. It will help you see if you are still ovulating in the midst of all this bleeding and spotting.

Well, I have been diagnosed with PCOS so I know there's more than likely some hormonal problems going on. I'm really worried though because this is the first time that I've had such prolonged bleeding. I know my gyn will probably try to give me the pill (or something else hormonal), but I really can't take it. Long story short, I had a intracerebellar hemorrhage (unexplained) that required surgery when I was 18 so no docs except one have put me on BC. And even then, it gave me weird headaches so I'm afraid to take anything again anyway. I don't know what he'll do, but the pill isn't an option.

Well that's good! It won't fix anything anyway, and can make your PCOS worse! Seriously, consider trying one of those FertilityCare doctors. They are so good at investigating these kinds of problems and fixing them!
