If the dosage on the bottle indicates 6 a day it is more likely the correct dose. Generally it takes 2 - 3 months to improve the menstrual cycle and related hormones. If you have been using for that time without change, or your symptoms worsen in any way, it would be best to consult your gynae for a follow up.
