Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can i ask your first name?
Hi. its Adam
Nice to meet you
Do you mean that your wife missed birth control pills?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX
Yes the pill is call Regividon.
Okay. Do you mean do you have anything to worry about in regards XXXXX XXXXX getting pregnant?
No. I was concerned that the small amount of blood loss between her periods was nothing serious?
oh that is nothing serious
that is just due to missing pills
she should get a pregnancy test to be sure
I was worried because it states on various websites that the start of cervical cancer can be bleeding in between periods?
that is true but her situation is pretty typical
if you miss pills, you will bleed often
if the bleeding resolves, she is fine
just make sure she is not pregnant and her pap is up to date
She missed 3 pills in total. In your opinion would you say it could be the start of cervical cancer? she had a smear 18 months ago and all was ok.
no, I would say I'm 100% sure its not
given that she had a pap 18 months ago and the history you gave me
Thank you. One last thing. She started taking the pill again 3 days ago but the bleeding is still going is that ok?
yes, that is okay
it will take a while
if it doesn't resolve go see the GP
One last thing please. The bleeding is still going on even though she re started taking the pill 3 days ago?
yes, I know.
That is okay.
That does happen
give it time
If she sees her GP are the chances of it being cervical cancer still very low?
I would say less than 1%
Thats great thank you so much.
you're welcome :)

I appreciate it
I sure will thanks again and take care.
