Concentrate on your life style, indulge yourself in exercise, medicine, avoid junk food, at your age it's difficult to say irregular cycles directly a pcos, first confirm the diagnosis with composite evaluation.....And check your weight... That should on lower normal limit according to your height
There is no permanent cure for PCOS. However, the symptoms can be minimized to a large extent by life style changes and some medicines. If you are obese, weight reduction helps quite a bit. If it has been long time since you last visited a Gynaecologist, visit one and follow the treatment prescribed.
It is perfectly normal to get irregular periods upto age 18 or so. What happens is that it takes a few years for the periods to regularize after menarche ( first starting of periods). This is because of irregular ovulation that takes time to normalize. Usually it is seen that after hormones are stopped for a while side-effects come back to normal. You need to visit a gynaecologist and get a full assessment of your PCO - whether you need to lose weight or take further medicines. Hope you feel better soon!
