Bleeding continuously from pco is usually due to excess of estrogen in relation to progesterone. You should of course do a pregnancy test. The treatment is progesterone therapy. Often for a month. Followed by treatment with the birth control pill, progesterone or metformin. Homeopathic treatment is not effective.

Oh why do I need to get a pregnancy test done?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Is it something very serious? Because I was very scared that maybe it's vaginal cancer or something

I read online that patients with pcod have have high chances of vaginal cancer and bleeding as a symptom can be that

You need a pregnancy test as irregular bleeding can be due to pregnancy. Vaginal cancer would be the very last thing i would think of. Its extremely rare. And no, pcos does not increase your risk of it.
