My doctor put me on spironolactone to treat me for PCOS, but from what I read it doesn't. Can it? Im 29 yrs old and I was diagnosed with PCOS when I 18 yrs old, but was never treated for it. I just started seeing a new physician and she placed me on spironolactone in February. She said it would help with the PCOS and quite possibly help with the infertility. Well, I already have irregular periods as is, but after taking the meds, my period has been on since the end of February. Its driving me nuts so I stopped taking them in April. My doc said to just let the period run its course. She wants to see me again for an ob/gyn examine, but its still there. I don't know what to do besides switching doctors. Can someone help please?
