I am 43 years old and have started to have irregular periods.

Customer Question

I am 43 years old and have started to have irregular periods. I have PCOS, and very rarely had periods (maybe once every 2 years) before I had my 3rd child at age 35. The month after I had the 3rd child, all conceived with infertility treatments, I suddenly had regular periods like clockwork. Now this cycle was only 19 days. I have no health insurance and haven't had a pap in 4 years. Do I need to be worried?

Did you have regular Pap smears up until 4 years ago?
Did you lose weight around the time of your 3rd child? Thank you.
