I just started on Gianvi for PMDD, and I didnt start it on the day of my period, I started it right when I got it which was 2 weeks before my period. Its been 2 months and Ive had 3 periods! Should I continue taking the pills and my menstrual cycle will regulate itself? What should I do?
You should keep taking the pills as instructed. It is not uncommon initially for woman to experience symptoms like your own. It can often take 2 to 3 cycles for your body to adjust to the hormones. If the bleeding does not settle or it is becoming particularly bothersome see your doctor.
Suzanne is of course right, and the reason they want you to start it during your cycle is because of the hormone levels at that time. You are safe from pregnancy if you took them correctly, but you messed your cyle up. It should straighten out soon. Try to take them as close to exactly 24 hours apart as you can, that helps level you out. Patt
