Skipped periods

Dear Doc

I have been skipping the red inactive tablets of my Melodene on a regular basis for the past two years. I had a very large chocolate cyst removed 2 years ago and then skipped the red pills so as to only have 1 period every 6 months. Then, for the last year, I have had 1 period every 3 months. This has all been as a result of advice from my gynae.

My question is this: could this be the reason for my lack of interest in sex? I was once very sexually active with my husband, but nowdays I just have no desire! Is it healthy to continue with 1 period every 3 months indefinately?

I've been on Melodene for 6 years now and am 24 years old.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Kind regards

It is safe to use the pill like you have been for this indication. Some pills do affect libido but there are lots of other reasons why this may be happening. Seeing a sexologist may help
