Hello, and I hope I can help you today.
Birth control pills can help to regulate an irregular period and all the symptoms that irregular hormones can cause. I do agree with your doctor that they have a high likelihood of helping your symptoms.
Birth control pills are also completely reversible, meaning that you can stop them anytime in order to try to get pregnant.
However, some people just have irregular periods
and if you stop the pill your symptoms may return. I suggest you try it for a few months and if it seems to help, I suggest you continue the pills until you decide to try to become pregnant, unless you have bothersome side effects.
Also in the meantime, if you haven't done so already, if you haven't had your period for a while and have been sexually active I suggest you do a pregnancy
test before starting birth control.
I hope this information was helpful and I answered your question and that you feel better.
Sincerely, Dr. Brown
