Thank you doc for prompt reply.

I have read about this medicine that its given if you have any miscarriage history or if you have any luteal phase defect. In my case both is not correct. Its first normal pregnancy and my periods have been always regular , its 28 days cycle. I dont use medicine much I dnt even take disprine ( headace medicine ) thats why am more concern that why I should take this if everything is normal. Will it be effected if I dnt take this medicine or I should take this just for precautionary sake.

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Cycloreg not recommended

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, there is no need to take cycloreg, especially at your age.
Cycloreg contains estrogen and is not generally recommended for women above35 years of age due to its side effect profile.
Please elaborate your menstrual symptoms in detail so that I can help you better.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Hi

I have always had normal mensural cylce for 3 to 4 days, and I dnt found much pain and other pms during my cycle, only feel heaviness for half day only. My weight is 78 kg which I forget to mentioned. But never had any mensural problem much, its always gone smooth. I have thyroid problem which was 5.99 before 3 month. Have given sample for testing again today, by tomarrow I will get report. I was in healthy lifestyle for these 3 months and also eating healthy mainly in fruits and vegetables much. I am really worried for taking this medicine when everything is normal with me except thyroid, for which I have started thyronorm 50mg on my gynae advise till i didnt get my TSH report. Please advise whether I still took this medicine or not.
