Were you diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?
Women with PCOS may have enlarged ovaries that contain small collections of fluid — called follicles — located in each ovary as seen during an ultrasound exam.
Infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne, and obesity can all occur in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
What type of thyroid gland problem do you have? Is it hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid gland) or hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid gland)?
Combination birth control pills are often prescribed to regulate the menstrual cycle.
Ginette 35 tablets contain a combination of ethinyloestradiol, a synthetic oestrogen and cyproterone acetate, an antiandrogen which work together to reverse the effects of too much androgen, like acne and hirsutism, while acting as a contraceptive.
Ginette 35 tablets can also be used for the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome, which is also caused by excess androgen and is usually accompanied by acne and hirsutism.
Anonymous, I am not familiar with placentitis as an injectable drug.
Diane-35 ED tablets contain 35 micrograms of ethinyloestradiol and were probably prescribed to treat PCOS.
Why did you stop taking the pills?
If you have any concerns about how you are responding to the pills and how it is affecting your menstrual cycle, please speak with your current physician.
