Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information, birth control pills can cause changes in your menstrual cycle. Other than birth control pills, there are other cuases that could cause irregular period such as:

  • A very busy and active lifestyle
  • Emotional stress
  • Losing weight or overweight
  • Thyroid or pituitary gland problems
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome problem
  • Problems with uterine, ovarian or cervical structures

Get through that time of the month comfortably without leak.
