    Earlier this year I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries, however after my periods being allover the place they had recently started to settle down. Then last month my period was 10 days late which I thought I may possibly be pregnant as I was sick and a few times and had a few pains In my side which I thought could be implantation. I then however come on and it was very heavy (leaking through my tampon every 2 hours) and painful lasting for nearly two weeks. Now after 5 days of being off I have started bleeding again however it is very light and not the usual colour. I also feel very sick and have a really bad lower back pain with pains and cramps in both sides if my pelvic. I have been to the doctors and they have told me to see how I go over the next week, which is really annoying as I feel myself getting worse. Can anyone help me to know what is going on or what I should do? Thanks
