Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

The symptoms that you have been experiencing are due to the side effects of the pills that the doctor has just started you on. It is common to experience such symptoms with pills and it is expected to settle down in 3 cycles. There is nothing that you need to worry about, the treatment is correct. Do not stop the pills abruptly without informing the doctor as it can cause further hormonal imbalance. Drink plenty of water daily and reduce stress.

Hope this helped.
Regards
