I've always had regular periods, but last two months it was very scanty - like just red discharge instead of white which lasted for 7-8 days. The gynic put me on Meprate from the 16th-26th day of my date for the next cycle. The next cycle was normal but once I was off the tablet the problem occurred again so she asked me to take the tablet for 2 more months.
So this month I was on the Meprate Tablet. I had an intercourse for the very first time on 23rd day(unplanned), and had to take an ipill too just to be safe(for the first time). I started bleeding again on the same date I did last month. So my questions are:
1) What is withdrawal bleeding? When does it happen? Is mine withdrawal bleeding?
2) Is it necessary that my next cycles will get disturbed?
3) What do I do about my scanty periods? Because Meprate is giving me a very bad depression.
4) Any chance of pregnancy even after the bleeding?
5) Is the scanty period a very serious issue? What is the treatment?

Scanty period is a sign of progesterone deficiency and adrenal fatigue. Sorry to inform you but you are walking on the road of hormone imbalances which lead to period and fertility issues in short term but serious disorders like diabetes, blood pressure, autoimmune thyroid disease and cancers in the long term.
Good news is that it can be totally reversed if you choose to do so. If you really want to know the root cause of your problem and heal it permanently , please read my blogs on www.truhealing.com or practo health feeds. Hope that helps....
Since how long you have experiencing scanty periods?
WIthdrawal bleeding is the hormonal period or fake period, is the monthly bleeding women experience while using a hormonal birth control method. In your case, it happened due to Meprate.
Also, taking ipill interferes with your period cycles.
For scanty periods, you should visit a gynecologist for further evaluation.
Hi, since how long you r having scanty periods? What is your Bmi? If bmi is high , it may be due to hormone changes.
As you have taken i pill, it also gave you bleeding . When you stop medicine, you will have withdrawal Bleeding..
May be your next cycle will be disturbed.
Dear Practo user,
You have a battery of questions. Satisfactory answer likely to be given on face to face consultation. Withdrawal bleeding is one which happened when you completed the course of Meprate i.e. bleeding occurring after withdrawal of the drug. Taking the I Pill disturbs the menstrual cycle pattern. During next cycle, frequency may get disturbed. Regarding scanty bleeding consult your Gynaecologist. It needs evaluation. Chances of pregnancy are remote.
