Hi! I have regular periods every month, but my problem is there are times that I would have very heavy menstruations. It's uncontrollable. I had my ultrasound and the findings were polycystic ovaries. It says I have a lot of follicles that's causing that heavy period. There's no cysts, polyps or whatever that needs to be removed. My doctor is trying to treat me with Diane 35 for 3 months to regulate my cycle. I took it and finished the 21 days. During the 7 days withdrawal period I only had little light brown spotting. This made me kinda worried. Is that normal? Why does the doctor want to suppress my regular bleeding? How can this treat me with my heavy periods? I asked an explanation to my doctor and she can't explain it very well. She got agitated and annoyed by my questions easily. This made me very unhappy and worried because I want a more detailed explanation of why does that happen and how it can help me by taking those pills. The doctor just want me to do as she instructed without very much explanation. She just says it will regulate my period by taking those pills.
I missed 1 day also of taking the next pack of Diane 35. I wasn't able to because she wants me to visit her first for check-up before I take the next pack and due to my work I wasn't able to visit her immediately. It's only 1 day that I missed so she just instructed that I should take the next pill immediately. Is this really bad if I skipped a day of not taking this Diane 35 pill? I noticed that on that 8th day where I missed taking the next pill, my menstruation started to flow more than just the brown spotting. The doctor told me that it was because I didn't take the next pill immediately and so my menstruation will start to be heavy again. That's why I keep wondering why she wants to suppress my regular menstrual flow? Isn't that bad?
