Novelon restarting

Hi, I have been asked to take Novelon for 21 days due to heavy and irregular periods, which ended last Sunday 6th November. I still haven't got my periods. It's the 7th day today of without taking the tablet but I find there is some spotting. When should I start on the tablets again immediately from today or should I wait for 7 more days.

Novelon cannot heal heavy and irregular  periods. It can only make your periods look regular  for the time being, not to mention the side effects  associated  with  synthetic  hormones.
Next Steps
Good news is that your problem  can be totally reversed, not by masking the symptoms  but by addressing  the root cause of your issue. To know more on this, please read my blogs on www.truhealing.com or practo health feeds. Hope that helps....
