Absence of menstruation over months
I had a problem ogf not getting my periods lastyear &  it dragged on for months. When i eventually went to see the Gynae, I was placed on Oral Contraceptives(Triphasil) 2 assist in getting them back. I' m experiencing the same thing this year, it has now been four months since i last had my period. Is it safe 2 self-treat(with triphasil)?

Yes, you can take Triphasil. You don't say what your diagnosis was though. It would be importnat to know this.
