Hi there, I got prescribed co-cyprindiol for my acne/contraception and I wanted to ask when to start taking it? I have very irregular periods as well and I don't know when the next one will start so my GP said I can just start now, though everywhere online says you have to wait for your next period?? Thank you for your time!
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: No, no pain, they are every 3-5 weeks apart, I can only tell if it's coming from my pms symptoms
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nothing in particular, I sometimes suffer from migraine, but that's it I think

Hello. I'm Dr Chip
When was your last period?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
It finished on the 10th August

Then you can start the co-cyprindiol now--no need to wait for your next period

Please let me know if you need any more information
