Our expert says:
The decision to the pill for 3 months is certainly a rational decision and this would indeed assist in normalising the endometrium (lining of the womb), which is often significantly affected by Depovera. The so-called follicle of 19mm on scan should have been monitored further to establish whether this was in fact a follicular cyst and not necessarily one that would contain or release an egg. In the case of a follicular cyst this may explain why the Postoval and Duphaston did not have the desired effect since the dosage in both products is much lower than would be necessary to induce the withdrawal bleed. I certain that the Nordette would have the desired effect and it may not always be necessary to use it for the full 3 months.
