Sorry it meant to be gedarel.pill I was taking
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.
It usually takes a few months for the periods to become regular after stopping an oral contraceptive pill like gedarel.I agree that you would not be able to ovulate for a few months but gradually your fertility will return.The symptoms that you are experiencing are not something that I would worry about too much.If your bleeding is heavy or you feel lightheaded then you should be seen ASAP as too much blood loss can cause anemia.Let me know if you have more questions.Please rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end.Kindest regards

So why blood smells funny?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.
Blood smells funny because it is old.Older blood is smellier.I would not worry.Let me know if you have more questions.Please rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end.Kindest regards

How will i know which is my natural period?could this last long bleeding be my period?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.
Yes it could be your period, but because your hormones are disturbed at the moment we cannot be sure exactly which your period actually is.Only time will tell.Let me know if you have more questions.Please rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end.Kindest regards

If there any medication which could help my hormons get back on track?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.
Again that would be a hormonal medication, which would block fertility.So I would not recommend using that.I would just recommend giving it sometime for these symptoms to settle naturally.I would appreciate it if you rate me before we proceed.Kindest regards
