Hi doctor,

I had to switch my birth control from the Mononessa to Ortho-Cyclen today. Do you have a better recommendation? I was on Ortho-Cyclen when I was 16 and I remember hating it. It did not help with my cramps or make my periods any shorter. I still bled for 7 plus days. I am now 23 years old and sexually active. Please help me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Get your routine blood tests like CBC (complete blood count), blood sugar, thyroid profile, coagulation profile and liver function tests along with a scan of abdominal organs and pelvis.
  • If you have problem with estrogen and progesterone combination, which is present in tablet Ortho-Cyclen, then you can start with Progesterone tablets containing Norethisterone from day 5 to 25 continuously for control of bleeding.
  • Another best way for this treatment as well as birth control is the use of mirena (levonorgestrel intrauterine contraceptive device). You can discuss this with your doctor.
