PCOS patients have a higher estrogen level. They do not ovulate. Hence, they have got no progesterone. And because of that, they do not get their menses. When you do not menstruate regularly and your menstrual cycle is prolonged, the lining of your womb gets very very thick to a point where it starts to shred out. That's when it starts to bleed slowly and that can take a long time. Usually, we would give this kind of patient some medication, for example, progesterone tablets for 5 days to induce their menstrual cycle. Then we will check on their womb lining again. If you are not keen to get pregnant, you can also start taking oral contraceptive pills, such as Diane 35 or Yamin until to a point when you decide to get pregnant, you can stop taking Diane 35 or Yasmin. At that point, you can start taking clomiphene citrate or letrozole to grow your eggs.

There might be multiple reasons why you are having bleeding for such a long time. I would recommend you to see a gynaecologist. It could be a hormonal imbalance. But I also think that you need to check and make sure there is no physical reason for this bleeding. It also depends on what kind of bleeding you are having. Is it light? Is it spotting? All these will give doctors more of an idea.
