Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
There are 2 types of contraceptive pills based on the hormone content that is the active ingredient, including: combination pills (consisting of 21 pills containing estrogen-progestin hormone combinations and 7 placebo pills); and minipil (consisting of 28 or 35 progestin pills). Menstrual disorders is one of the side effects that can occur in the use of contraceptive pills. The form of menstrual disorders can be in the form of menstruation that is becoming less or shorter in duration, spots coming out, irregular inter-menstrual intervals, rarely menstruation, or even no periods at all. Nevertheless, it still needs a direct evaluation by a doctor to ascertain the cause of menstrual disorders that occur. Some other possibilities that can also cause menstrual disorders include problems in the reproductive organs (including the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, ovaries) as well as other factors outside the reproductive organs (nutrition intake, blood clotting disorders, drug side effects, hormonal disorders, stress ).
We recommend that you consult directly with a specialist obstetrics and gynecologist so that they can be evaluated and given appropriate treatment. In addition to the history and physical examination, the doctor may consider supporting examinations, for example an ultrasound examination (USG) content.
To help overcome the problem of menstrual disorders, you are advised to get enough rest, drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, consume balanced nutritious food regularly, exercise regularly, and manage stress well.
