Having PCOS and dealing with gynos can be awful. I had a lot of bad ones, including (over the PHONE giving me test results, never wanted to see me for any follow-up appt or discussion): "You definitely have Pcos. You need to lose weight. You've probably tried everything, right? You should get weight loss surgery. That's all you can do." and the ******* who said the following: "You can't possibly know your ovaries hurt - most women don't know where their ovaries are" and then, while doing my pelvic exam, explained he would need a clean urine sample and (without telling me what that meant or what he wanted to do) shoved a catheter in me. So I feel you. I have a very nice obgyn now - but I know, unless I am having some sort of severe pain or if I'm not having any periods at all, there is nothing to be done.
If you're super worried, I would probably try to find somebody to see - maybe get a recommendation from a friend, if you can, or a reproductive endocrinologist who is much more likely to be educated about PCOS. But the spotting in place of menses and then months later, a heavy flow, has happened to me lots, especially when I was bigger. I use BCP to help with my PCOS and they sort of regulate TOM - I mostly get it every month now, and it's usually sort of middle of the range. It helps to keep a diary of sorts tracking these things. If you do decide to go to a Dr., it's nice to have (especially if you're going to a bad Dr., who might be dismissive).
