Symptoms:  Pain in back and body ache

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Your periods are definitely very irregular and the cycle duration is only 15-20 days compared to 30 days which was before.
This is not related to intercourse in any way.
You need to get your hormone levels checked especially Serum FSH/LH, Progesterone and Oestrogen. It seems to be a minor problem because of temporary hormonal imbalance. It could have been initiated by the i-pill you took.

Please get the detailed evaluation of hormones and the treatment will be based on the findings. A course of Duphaston helps in regularizing the cycles.

Hope this was helpful,
