Hello, Are you having too much of carbohydrates? Eat whole grain foods like whole wheat bread and decrease fat intake. Eat foods rich in protein and fiber like fruit and vegetables.Drink plenty of liquids and avoid sugary drinks. Consult your gynaecologist and she will prescribe you medications to stabilize your periods.

Hi. Change in exercise pattern can cause disturbance in periods. Unless you are worried about pregnancy, don't think too much into it. You can wait upto a month for periods. In addition to exercise, take a healthy diet, including proteins, vitamins and complex carbs. Periods in PCOS take time to regularise, to be patient and continue exercising. You are on right track
