Hey there again! So, I am having my first "real" period in nearly 3 years after 1.5 years of the pill and a year of amenorrhea from PCOS. Is it common to have very heavy flow in the morning and light flow in the evening? For the past 2 days, I have been filling a super plus tampon in 2 hours from morning to the time school ends. Then, my flow gets much lighter, to the point I half fill a regular tampon in 3 hours by 8. Then the next morning, it starts again. Heavy, then light. I'm pretty sure this also happened pre-pill.

By the way... I have beaten my PCOS! By losing 50 lbs and taking glucophage (metformin), I have gotten this period exactly 28 days after day 1 of my last pill period. This may be the beginning of the end for my PCOS. *happy dance!* That's so much better than the once-a-year-if-that deals I once had. Maybe I'm being too optimistic, but I really hope I am truly regular now.

Hey, ilovenerds, I'm happy for you that your period managed to come on time! And it's refreshing to see someone so happy about the possibility of getting regular periods [Razz]

Period flow varies from person to person, but heavier flow in the morning with lighter flow in the evening is a pretty common occurrence. If you're still concerned about it, or just want to make super-sure everything's fine, you can of course check up with your doctor about it. If this is how your period used to be before going on the pill, though, you can be pretty certain that this is just how your flow is.

Good luck! [Big Grin]
