Our expert says:
The causes of irregular bleeding are generally divided into two groups, hormonal bleeding and non-hormonal bleeding. Hormonal bleeding is diagnosed when all other causes of irregular bleeding are excluded such as the presence of fibroids, cervical problems or other uterine abnormalities. If all the other non-hormonal causes are excluded then the dysfunctional bleeding may be related to anovulatory problems. The oral contraceptive pill may help temporarily to regulate your period but if you are planning on a pregnancy then you would benefit from drugs that would promote ovulation. These drugs once they promote ovulation should regulate your period. I would advise a full reassessment and diagnosis before treatment be instituted.
