Hello. Welcome to Healthcare Magic. I'm Dr. Christensen.
I'm sorry you're having problems regulating your cycles. Your doctor may suspect that you have polycystic ovary syndrome
, a hormonal
disorder that causes irregular cycles, weight gain, and sometimes other symptoms, such as excessive body and facial hair, acne
, and infertility
. Women who have polycystic ovary syndrome tend to have higher-than-normal levels of androgens
(male hormones) in their system, and they don't ovulate every month, which leads to irregular menstrual cycles.
Birth control pills, such as Ginette, are a common treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome. These medications help to counteract the effect of androgens and allow your body to cycle on a regular basis. Depending on how you respond to the Ginette, your doctor may want to order a few tests or try some other medications.
I hope that answers your question, and I hope things go well for you.
