Hello my periods are always the same every month . This month it was late and two days long what could this mean?
Normal variation: It is common for the cycle to vary from time to time. A few days difference in start time of menses should not be worrisome. The intensity of the menses can also vary so it should not be alarming to have an occasional lighter (or heavier) period.

I have pco's for last 15yrs. I am 29yrs now. I take 5 tabs of registrone every month to get my periods. will this have long term effect if i continue?
Amazing to me: B"sd Norethindrone is a form of progesterone, which "prepares" the uterus lining after exposure to estrogen. on stopping the pills the lining is "unsupported" and menstruation ensues. Ongoing monthly rx is not commonly used in my experience - but do not see any adverse effect. Endocrinologist approach is to try and reverse the hormonal abnormalities in PCOS and usually normal menses follow. ...Read more
