Hi, I had been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and pcos 9 months ago. My doctor prescribed me femilon tablets to take for 6 months...After I finished these, 1 month later my periods came. At that time I was tired and lost more blood, but now (May 9th) my period has not come. What should I do?
I've been married for 2 years now and after having unprotected intercourse I was diagnosed with a right ovarian cyst. They gave me femiblez to calm it down so that if it's still there at my next checkup then there will be surgery. Can it be the cyst that's preventing me from getting pregnant or what?

This drug has also been reported to reduce the risk of ovarian cysts, which is most likely why he prescribed it to you. It is noted also that the medication is used to regulate periods but it does take time to regulate. So if you are concerned that you are going to skip the period or that this drug is completely stopping your menstrual cycle please consult your doctor as he would be the best one equipped to help you.
