In brief: Absolutely

Hello Lori, When ladies complain of heavy vaginal bleeding, anemia, passing clots, irregular periods and pain with periods, we very often prescribe birth control.
The pill was first used for contraception then we noted the cycle-control side effects. Now we also use Depo-Provera, Mirena, (levonorgestrel) Nexplanon etc.
