is a oral contraceptive
pill and will help you regularize your cycles and stabilize the hormone level issues that you are facing. Generally, its a safe drug provided we have ruled out certain conditions like liver disease, high cholesterol
, thrombolembolic disorders, migraine
and or the endometrium; undiagnosed vaginal bleeding;
Side effects may include nausea, bloating
, weight gain and issues with lipids/thromboembolic disorders. At this age, assuming you dont have any pre-existing condition, this is not a drug you need to be apprehensive about. It will not treat the PCOD but will help regularise your cycles.
Also, its important that you manage your weight through proper diet and exercise. This is the single most important thing you can do to manage your PCOD.
Hope that helps
