Irregular periods: It really depends on the cause, and what you are looking for. The treatment would be very different if you were trying to get pregnant. The first step would be to see your ob/gyn and determine the cause, then pick the treatment that best fits your stage of life.

Cycle control: Most women with irregular menses will respond to oral contraceptives, and eventually have regular and predictable cycles. The first step however, is to determine why the cycles are irregular - which means you should see you doctor for evaluation.

Does rigevidon pill treat irregular periods?

Dr. Keith Hansen
Fertility Medicine 38 years experience
Irregular menses: Rigevidon is a combined oral contraceptive pill with a progestin and ethinyl estradiol. Oral contraceptive pills are often used to treat women with irregular cycles to regulate their menses. This does not treat the cause of having irregular menses. Many women when they stop the 'pill' will go back to irregular menses. Your physician can help you determine the cause of irregular menses.
