Hi, I am also using this pill to regulate my periods however, I would like to know what you mean by using this correctly. Is it that you are not to miss a pill, or you are to take you pill at the same time everyday?

Dear Anon,

Thanks for your question. Novynette isn't a drug that is used in the U.S. and there is limited information on it. However it is ethinyl estradiol-desogestrel which is an oral contraceptive and commonly used to regulate periods even though it is intended to prevent pregnancy. So, even if it was prescribed for you to regulate your periods if taken correctly, it will also prevent pregnancies.

Good luck,
