Hello doctor,

I am being treated for PCOS. My gynecologist prescribed me Irozorb syrup, ovacare tablets, and Sysron-N. I started taking them on the fifth day of my last period. I missed my Sysron pill on the 22nd and 23rd. I took my usual dosage now today. I got my period. Should I continue the tablets or stop the dosage and consult my doctor? My period cycle is 25 days.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It is better if you take a combined pill for PCOS (polycystic ovaries syndrome). I suggest you stop the drug and start a combined pill from day-5. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.
  • These are hormonal pills. You should not skip even a single pill.

Thank you doctor,

So, should I stop taking Sysron-N? I still have five days of pills left. The doctor prescribed it for 25 days.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Since you have missed the pill, let the withdrawal bleeding occur. Just continue with Ovacare (a combination of Folic acid, Inositol, etc.).
  • Instead of Sysron (Norethisterone), you can take tablet Dronis 30 (Ethinylestradiol and Drospirenone) once a day from day-5. It is a 21-day pill. Take it at night once a day. Then give a gap of seven days. Restart the pill from the eighth day. You will get the period three to four days after stopping the pill. I hope you do not have a migraine or any other illness. You should take this pill for six cycles.
