Hello doctor,

I got a D and C done a month back for the endometrial polyp. The doctor told me there is uterus infection and prescribed antibiotics. After the course of antibiotics, the other doctor prescribed Regesterone10 mg for 20 days. I still have eight tablets to go, and I got my periods yesterday. My query is, should I continue Regesterone now, or should I just stop it?



Welcome to

I have checked your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity), and it is suggestive of infection only, but it is chronic. It means it is there for a few weeks or months. There is no other abnormal growth. So nothing to worry about.

If you were taking Regesterone for delayed periods, then you should stop taking it. If you are taking it as hormonal therapy, then you should continue it. Please tell me, did you have delayed periods? When was your last period? Please reply.

Thank you doctor,

Well, I did not have irregular periods, but the time gap between two cycles reduced from four weeks to two weeks. Please be informed that I took Sysron tablets also for 20 days before the D and C was done. Due to these sudden changes in cycle time, I lost track of the exact date. I guess my last period was last month. I had some light bleeding after D and C for almost a week. I hope this information helps. The doctor who did D and C suggested total abdominal hysterectomy too. But when we took a second opinion from another doctor. She told us it is not required if I keep examining once in three months along with ice therapy.



Welcome back to

Yes, bleeding occurs due to D and C (dilation and curettage). So, in your case, to heal endometrium only, they gave you hormonal tablets. Now you have got periods, and bleeding is normal, so you can continue the rest of the medicine. If it leads to heavy bleeding, then you can stop taking it. Otherwise, no problem, it will not lead to any side effects.
