User:Hello Doctor
Doctor:Logged in
User:My wife aged 34 got her last period on 15th Sep. After 40 days we went to hospital and they diagnosed with PCOD and gave MEPRATE tablet for 5 days still did not get the period. So they gave OVRAL tablet for 21 days. But after taking this OVRAL for 3 days she started getting couple of drops blood only but having the body pain similar to mensus. Question-1: Should we stop the OVRAL tablet? Question-2: She got only 2 drops blood so not sure if it is periods or something else.
Doctor:ovral is a contraceptive
Doctor:I think that if she got her periods for just 2 drops
Doctor:it cannot be considered periods
User:yes..thats what they gaev since MEPRATE did not help in getting periods..they said after taking OVRAL for 21 days then wait for 5 more days to get period
User:but now she took OVRAL for only 3 days..and she got 2 drops of blood but all other indication body paid are like period
User:so confused
User:*body pain
Doctor:even it would be confusion for doctors
User:so what you suggest?
Doctor:since it happened because of meprate withdrawal and was gonna get periods if she was not taking ovral
Doctor:But now she has started ovral
Doctor:her hormones are wonna be upset
Doctor:her internal physiology has gotten confused whether to listen to meprate or ovral
User:shall we wait for one more day to see if more bleeding happens and stop OVRAL?
Doctor:I think she may skip just one dose of ovral and see if she gets her periods
Doctor:if she doesnot then continue ovral as routine
Doctor:just one dose can be skipped for OCs
Doctor:You may also consult her [rescribing doctor
User:can the intercourse be had during this medication time?
User:we had twice this week so not sure if that caused 2 drops of blood..
Doctor:Sexual intercourse can be done
Doctor:It may cause bleeding if she has cervicitis
User:after that she had some pain in the vagina...
Doctor:But her other symptoms suggest menstrual like pain
User:all other symptom are like menstural pain but only 2 drop of blood since yesterday
