Periods a few times a year?

MyDolceVita posted:
I have seen numerous different gynecologists, OBGYN's, regular doctors, we've had scans done, pelvic ultrasounds and way too many paps. Many of them suspected that this could be caused by PCOS but we've tested for that several times..

I'm beginning to think we'll never find a reason to why my periods have always been irregular, I've never in my life had a normal menstrual cycle. I guess my questions are, does anyone else have this problem, have they found a diagnosis and can this prevent me from getting pregnant?

Some women are irregular for no particular reason. It may make getting pregnant a bit harder but will not prevent you from getting pregnant. As a matter of fact, a regular poster, Georgiagail, was irregular when she was younger and had no problems getting pregnant.

If you haven't seen an endocrinologist, that would seem like a reasonable next step. You could have an endocrine problem (thyroid, pituitary, adrenal) that's causing your irregular cycles. There are "general" endocrinologists as well as reproductive endocrinologists.
