Jasmine to regulate cycle ?

User Profile
I've been on the jasmine pill that my gynecologist gave me to "regulate my menstrual cycle" but i haven't seen any result. i have more pain and last week Jan.24th was my last period and again it started on Jan. 30th
she told me to drink the pill on every first Sunday of my period and i been following these instructions since November and haven't seen any results..the reason i went to her office all the way in new york was because been trying to conceive with my husband for 2yrs.
Any advice? i live in Puerto Rico and its too far to go back to her office

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you have an irregular cycle and you have been trying to conceive for two years, then instead of taking this pill, you should consult an infertility specialist as only these specialist s can really help you out. The cycle has to become regular before conception is tried.

High level of stress, dramatic changes in your life style, high cholesterol, hormonal imbalance as seen in thyroid problems and PCOS, chain smoking, may be some of the common causes of your irregular periods. Cushing’s disease and disorders of adrenal gland, tumors of the ovaries and adrenals, fibroid uterus, insulin resistance and obesity are some of the other factors. Prolonged use of oral contraceptive pills is another cause.

A confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net hence please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
