    Too *Frequent* Periods?

    Is there anyone who has been diagnosed with PCOS that actually had too frequent periods as opposed to infrequent/no periods? If so, how were you treated? I've always had some PCOS tendencies (excess hair over most of my body and cyclic acne). But throughout my 20s, I had clockwork 28-day periods, was not overweight and had normal insulin levels. When I hit my 30s, however, everything started going haywire. My fasting glucose and long-term glucose levels recently came back normal, but I'm now on the high side of normal weight and my periods are coming every 24-25 days. When they do arrive, they are very light (I only really bleed for 2 days with spotting several more days). I'm also suffering from some pretty severe depression/anxiety (much worse in the 10 days leading up to my period), which I'm convinced has a hormonal link. Can anyone relate? I have never taken BC pills (I hate the idea of putting foreign substances in my body) but I can't take the emotional upheavals associated with having a menstrual cycle every 3.5 weeks. I've heard good things about Yaz, but I seriously fear for my well-being if birth control pills were to make my depression worse!
