Thanks for your query.
I would like to know the pattern of your previous menstrual cycles.
THe novelon is an oral contraceptive pill that was given to you to avoid a pregnancy.
Folic acid supplements are anyways required in childbearing age.
Shortened cycles ( occuring every 20 days ) could be due to stress, anxiety, rapid weight gain or loss, thyroid hormone disorders, endometrial fibroids or polyps, etc.
you need to consult a gynecologist again for detailed evaluation and testing to rule out causes of shortened cycles.
Folic acid discontinuation is not a reason for the problems.
Take care, and feel free to ask further questions.
