Thanks for your query.

Its possible that you get some inter menstrual spotting early in the treatment before your cycles are regular . This happens due to hormonal imbalance and will normalize if you take the medications correctly..

Take the packs as advised by your doctor.

So, there's no need to worry? Since I had my period after that I have been spotting. How long should I take the pill?
Answered by Dr. Rhea Chanda 3 hours later

Treatment for PCOS needs to be taken at least for 3 to 6 cycles . The initial spotting irregularities will normalize after the hormone levels normalize.
