Customer Question
I’m having irregular periods...

I’m having irregular periods and cystic acne. I wanted to explore the option of starting birth control pills again.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?

Not regular. I’ll skip 5 months then have a 2 weeks period, then a 3 day period, then nothing for two months, then light spotting. I would say my period is only normal for 4-5 months out of the year.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

None

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
