Hi,

my gf and i had protected sex. bcoz of fear she had a contraceptive I-pill, it had been already more than a 8 months.

Before using this CP her periods were very much regular. After using this her periods days increased to 11 to 12 days instead of 5 days which was normal.

Some times it has been irregular to her, and heavy flow. She's is afraid to visit the doctor.

I kindly request any one of you to suggest the best remedy for this. What is the alternate solution to stop this irregularity and this heavy flow management.

Awaiting for your vital reply as early as possible.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The pill use can disrupt the hormonal levels causing irregularities in the bleeding pattern and the duration.
Get her examined by a gynecologist; she will need hormonal tests done to see the current status of them based on which treatment would be prescribed to stop the heavy flow and the irregularity.
Take care.
