Question: Last month, my periods were due on 17th January but they got delayed by 15 days. On 16th - 18th day after the missed due date, I experienced spotting and hence visited a Gyneac for the same. She said it was hormonal imbalance (PCOS) and prescribed me Deviry 10mg for 5 days and Normoz for 3 months. Also, recommended exercise and diet.

Even before I started with the medication, my periods set in on the 19th day. I still went ahead and took the prescribed medicines. I had normal flowy periods for 3 days. I have been exercising regularly and I am on calculated balanced diet. It is the 8th day now after I got my periods, but i am still spotting everyday.

What can be the reason for it? Should I continue with the medicines?

Brief Answer:
Likely the effect of Deviry

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
You are spotting due to the deviry tablet you have taken.
It is a progesterone hormone, which induces withdrawal bleeding within 5-7 days of stopping the tablet.
The bleeding or spotting may continue for 5-10 days.
Normoz generally do not leads to spotting.
You should wait for 3-4 days for the spotting to stop.
If it do not stops, then you should get treatment in form of hormonal tablet ( regestrone) from your doctor.
You can continue Normoz.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Hi, I am 27 years old. I had missed period for two months. When I consulted the doctor, she told that there are cysts in my ovaries and had to plan for pregnancy ASAP. I had taken Regestrone tablets and after getting the period I was adviced to take Ovacare tablets for three months. Since mine is a overheat body, I am unable to take Ovacare tablets continuously. I am taking the cooling agents like barley water , coconut water...but it is not sufficient for controlling my body heat. Due to this overheat Iam suffering from Loose Motions very often, getting very small amount of bleeding . I am worried about the small amount of bleeding which is happening due to the Ovacare tablets. Could you please suggest me if I need to take any second thought from any other Gynec.
