Birth control and Irregular Periods

Patient: I’ve just been prescribed Co-Cyprindiol for birth control, my doctor told me to take it on the first day of my next period however I forgot to mention that I have irregular period- every other month. Is it still ok for me to take these tablets?

Doctor: Hi, Generally Co-Cyprindiol is not prescribed as a birth control unless the person is also having problems like acne or prolonged antibiotic usage or hirsutism. You can start the birth control pill from day 1 or 5 of the menstrual cycle as per the doctor’s suggestion and these pills will help to regularize your periods also.Hope that answers your query.
