Hello doctor,

From the last six months, I am getting my periods either five days before my due date or two days later than the due date. I want to know, is it normal to experience this time interval in periods?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, this is normal. Seven days plus or minus is considered as a normal menses cycle. It means any cycle length between 21 to 35 days is normal.

Thank you doctor,

I use to get small blisters over my oral lips. It occurs on the lining of the lips. Very tiny and minute blisters all over lips. It happens whenever I get my periods. What can be the cause and treatment?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

There is nothing which can cause such blisters over the lips before menses. It could be generalized acne on face due to hormonal changes before acne. I suggest medicine which is used for all symptoms associated with premenstrual period. Kindly consult your doctor, to discuss the suggestion and take the treatment with concern.

Tablet Primosa 500 mg once daily for one month.

Thank you doctor,

I hope this will help. I generally do not have any problems prior menses but in the last three to four times I use to get these rashes type of tiny blisters all over my oral lips, and it vanishes almost after a week or 10 days. I hope this tablet will help and does not cause any other side effects.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

This tablet does not cause any side effects as such. Generally, if anythings appear before and vanish after menses, the treatment is advised only if it is bothering you. I hope you have not changed any cosmetics or face wash or anything which cause allergy. Sometimes waxing over lips also cause such problems. Kindly think of these issues as well. I mean try to correlate, if you do not have such things then take medication which I suggested.

Thank you doctor,

Nothing as such. And as I told you, it has started before three to four months only. Before that, it was not the case. But now this thing re-occurs almost every month. It may be cold sore, or fever blisters type but very minute and go away after 10 days. If you say, I will take this medicine for one month. I hope this will help.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Try this for one month. If your problem remains as such, then I would prescribe you OCP's (oral contraceptive pills) for three to six months. Do not worry. Everything will be fine.
