Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.

Menstrual irregularities, excessive bleeding, amenorrhoea are very common side effects. Incidence of amenorrhoea increases with increase in the duration of it's use. Return of fertility can take upto 6 -30 month after discontinuation.

Generalized weakness may be due to tonsillitis. For tonsillitis i advice you salt water gargling and only symptomatic treatment and no antibiotic as usually it will be viral in origin.

Fertility usually occurs after 6 month to 30 month. If you are planning to be pregnant I advice you to stop this drug.

Yet again, I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.

you are having irregular periods for long time .prolonged bleeding may also cause weakness and tiredness .
to rule out pregnancy please go for some pregnancy test and find out .there will be chances of pregnancy in irregular periods and sex without protection .
it will be better to consult gynecologist and get a check up and investigations if required and have treatment for periods to be regular .
oral contraceptives may be used for few months to make the cycles regular.
