thank you for your query.
Femilon is an oral contraceptive pill that is relatively safe, and will help to regulate your cycles and also prevent pregnancy.
Irregular cycles need to be investigated for causes like stress, weight gain, anxiety, polycystic ovaries, thyroid disorder etc.
Side effects of pills are minimal and only on prolonged use.
Ask your prescribing doctor to run you through the checklist before starting Femilon.
take care.
