Dr Owen :

hello

Dr Owen :

hi

Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

As long as you Take your pills As Scheduled everyday you will have a period when you get to the Placebo pills

Dr Owen :

Also, I would suggest too getting yourself checked for a Thyroid condition with a TSH thyroid blood test as hypothyroidism (low thyroid ) is common in women and it is easily treated with a medication such as Synthroid.

JACUSTOMER-gyfbi95m- :

So if I just start taking this correctly now and give it time it shud return?

Dr Owen :

Yes so if you Start a New package of pills, then at the end of the 3rd week when you get to the Placebo pills you should have a period during that 4th week

JACUSTOMER-gyfbi95m- :

Ok I was thinking they are just messed up cos I hadn't been taking it correctly I am going for more pills tomoz at my gp

Dr Owen :

JACUSTOMER-gyfbi95m- :
