Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Can you tell me please, how old is your daughter? And does she have any medical problems? Prior to starting the birth control, did she have regular periods? Did her doctor ever mention or think she might have a condition called PCOS? (polycystic ovary syndrome)

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
