I am experiencing this problem for the last 2-3 months. in the last cycle my doctor asked me to take cycloreg 5mg twice a day for 21 days and asked me to stop.. my bleeding problem controlled and stopped completely wtihin the first 10 days. but when i stopped i got very heavy bleeding and pain and i was asked to start the tablet again from 2nd day onwards. slight spotting and pain was there till 14th day and then i was asked to take cycloreg noon also. Now cycloreg with three times a day bleeding and pain all stopped. Now i am scared to stop it after 21 days. Is it essential that I NEED TO STOP AFTER 21 DAYS ? .Is this the right line of treatment ?

Its not absolutely necessary to stop cycloreg after 21 days. You can continue it with little risk of weight gain. But you can't continue lifelong. Better option is to insert LNG IUD (Copper T like intrauterine device) which will solve your problem without side effects.
Wish you good health.
