OB GYN Doctor: Dr.Das, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Why were you on the birth control pills? To regulate your periods or to prevent pregnancy?

What condition were you diagnosed to have which were causing irregular periods?

Fibroids
OB GYN Doctor: Dr.Das, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

If fibroids were causing irregular periods, then birth control pills are only a temporary measure to regulate your periods. Once you stop them, you are likely to have spotting or irregular periods again.

Fibroids need no active treatment if they are not causing symptoms. But if they cause symptoms such as irregular periods or spotting etc, then the only permanent treatment is surgery to remove the fibroids.

In your case, since you are spotting again while on the birth control pills, you need to be reviewed and possibly surgery to remove the fibroids will need to be planned.

I hope this helped.
