@mrsw5711:  I am not saying this to scare you whatsoever, but I also have PCOS and got a BFP back in April.  I had slight spotting, brownish and reddish pink, also some cramping.  We got our BFP on a Thursday, cramps and spotting started Saturday and I miscarried that Monday.

We have since got a BFP in July, and we are a healthy 16 weeks along.  I did not have any spotting, though lots of cramping as my uterus was stretching. 

You could be experienceing implantation bleeding, but it is hard to say.  I would wait to hear back from your Doctor (did you go have blood work done to test HCG levels?)  I have never heard of spotting more because of cysts..

Good luck, I hope everything is fine!

First off congrats!!!  Secondly, I have pcos and last year I miacarried with some spotting at about 8 weeks.  I am currently almost 32 weeks pregnant and I also had spotting early on in this pregnancy.  This time I actually mistaked my spotting for my period and so didn’t even find out I was pregnant until I was 8 weeks along.  So what does this all mean about people with PCOS?  I don’t know but know that not all bleeding ends in miscarriage!  H&H 9 months!!

@mrsw5711:  My cousin has PCOS! She had VERY severe cramping/spotting from weeks 3-7. She was TERRIFIED she was about to lose her baby, but she’s 15 weeks along and doing great so far!

I have PCOS.  My doctors office never came out & told me directly that i was pregnant.  THey just said that my levels were going up and thats a good thing.  Then on a Friday while I’m at work something didnt feel right and I ran to the bathroom.  It looked like i had a full-fledge period, lots of bleeding & passed clots, couldnt even keep a ultra tampon in for more than 3 minutes before it was soaked, including adding a pad.  This went on for 15 minutes.  I finally called the drs office who said as long as i wasn’t having any pain i should be fine. Just keep an eye on the bleeding, if it continous to be heavy and if i have any pain to go to the ER right away.  They scheduled me for an ultrasound Monday afternoon.  I went there and everything was fine.  They didn’t think it was implenation bleeding, more like, i had “extra stuff” in there that my uterus was just expelling.  

So hopefully you have the samthing as me.. just extra stuff thats making it way out. I’m almost at 5 months with no problems 🙂

Good Luck!! & hugs!

@mrsw5711:  I’m a PCOS Mumma-to-be. I had plenty of cramping, but no spotting. Every woman is different and spotting is quite common with or without pre-existing conditions. If you become really concerned about it then don’t hesitate to contact your Dr.
