Customer Question

I am currently on the mini pill (zeleta i think its called) and i have been on my period for 3-4 weeks now, with brown discharge to start with. Before going on to the mini pill i had the implant in for 4 years. The first 2 years i had no problems at all, then my periods began to get heavier and more frequent and before having the second implant removed i had a period which lasted for 18 weeks with no break. can i take utovlan (which ive used before) while on the mini pill to have a break from bleeding?

Thank you for your question,
I’mCustomerand I’ll try to help you.
Both contain similar product.
You may shift to Utovlan.
Sometimes, one works better than other.
But adding extra utovlan with mini pill would need a consultation with your doctor.
I hope this information helps.
