Hi Dr. Mia, I was not having periods for almost 8 months during the last year. My periods had always been irregular, but there was never such a long gap. I consulted a doc and found out that I had PCOS . She had prescribed a medicine called meprate for 5 days, after a week of having that medicine I got my periods. On the second day of my periods I was adviced to start diane 35 for 6 months, so I had been taking diane 35 ever since. Its just about 11 days since I started taking it and inbetween my periods started again. I consulted my doc again, and c adviced me to stop it immediately and start the 21 day cycle of diane 35 from the 2nd day of this menstrual cycle again. Also, she even suggested to start oosure parallely.. I have been reading about the side affects of these medicines on net.. and am looking for a second opinion. Could you please help? Also, wen the periods came after taking meprate, it continued for 8 days so I had to take xamic to stop it. Please help.
