Hi thanks for the asking the query on XXXXXXX

Symptoms which you have mentioned indicate towards premenstrual syndrome for which your patient have been prescribed Lynoral. There are many non-drug measures which are also useful to relieve these symptoms including regular exercise, yoga and stress management.

In drugs, pyridoxine (Vit-B6) has been found to be useful for moody symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome. In hormonal drugs combined oral contraceptive pills for 3-6 cycles are also very useful for these type of symptoms.

Good Luck.

Hi,

Apologies for the late reply, I got stuck somewhere yesterday for the whole day.

A good birth control pill is one which contains both estrogen and progesterone. Many preparations are available in the market which are low dose oral contraceptive pills and contains estrogen 0.03 mg and progesterone (levonorgesterol/desogestrel 0.15 mg). You can choose anyone among these.

Lynoral is estorgen only pill and it does not contain progesterone.

Good Luck.
