I'm a 28 yr old mom (of a 2 year old). I've had irregular periods since I began menstruating at the age of 12 and have met several doctors but to no avail. Tried iron tablets since I'm anaemic - this helps occasionally. One doctor claims that I maybe a 'weird' PCO (Poly Cystic Ovary) case since I don't sport most of the typical symptoms of this.
Our baby was born after a problem free pregnancy during which scans confirmed 'no cysts'. Periods were regular for a year after delivery. It's become irregular again since the last year or so.
How safe is Novelon (desogestrel and ethinylestradiol tablets) for long term use? This contraceptive pill was prescribed by one of my doc's who said it can be used to regularize the cycles.
Upset and irritated. Pls help.
