help pls
Hi doctor. I have been on Triphasil previously. Discontinued because of high blood pressure though the pills was not the cause.Struggled with irregular periods for a year because I didn't stop with the pills like I should have.(is this normal to struggle with this for a year?) I was put on Tetrasyl and Minerva for an acne problem for 3 months.Want to know if it is ok to stop taking the Minerva after 3 months of usage or will it possily cause irregularity again?Much appreciated!

Dear Lali
It should not cause irregularity if you stop the Minerva unless you have an underlying hormonal imbalance. The stopping of the triphasil should not really cause irregularity for a year.
