What causes a delay in menstruation after the cancellation of Regulon?
Regulon is an oral hormonal contraceptive. The drug is used to treat hormonal dysfunctions, such as menstrual disorders and uterine fibroids in the initial stages. Hormonal drugs can cause the absence of menstruation. To understand why the drug provoked the opposite effect, it is necessary to study its composition and understand the principles of the effects of components on the body.
Regulon - hormonal contraceptive in pill form
How does the drug
Regulon is intended for contraception and treatment of disorders of the monthly cycle, elimination of PMS, uterine bleeding, provoked by ovarian dysfunction or unstable hormonal background. A woman's pituitary gland produces hormones that are responsible for menstruation. When it is unstable, the cycle of menstruation is broken. The active components of Regulon act depressingly on the lethinizing and follicle-stimulating hormones of the pituitary gland. This contributes to the inhibition of ovulation and creates a barrier to the penetration of sperm into the uterine cavity. Hormones inhibit the function of the contraction of the fallopian tubes, which significantly reduces the rate of movement of eggs through them.
The estrogenic element of the drug contributes to the compaction of mucus in the cervix and changes its qualitative composition. The environment in the cervix becomes more aggressive, contributing to the death of sperm.
Reduction of luteinizing and follicle-stimulating hormones slows down the complete formation of eggs, prevents the standard formation of the corpus luteum and rupture of the follicle, while the endometrial layer is formed in insufficient quantities. The standard thickness of the endometrium is 1 cm, and during the course of taking Regulon it does not exceed 4 mm. A fetal egg, even in the case when the egg cell and sperm cells have passed all previous stages of protection, cannot be hardened in the uterus, because the absence of a normally developed endometrium does not allow the number of vessels necessary for feeding the egg to form.
Features of the drug
Patients often complain that they do not have menstruation after and during the reception of Regulon. The most common cause is incorrect drug intake. The contraceptive should begin to drink from 1 day of menstruation. With this technique does not require additional use of condoms. If the patient begins to receive from 2-5 days of menstruation, condoms should be used for 7 days. You can not start taking Regulon, if from the beginning of menstruation has elapsed 5 days.
Tablets should be drunk at one time, once a day. The risk of the appearance of hyperovulation decreases when, against the background of a surge in hormones, not one but several eggs are formed. The break between reception is 23-25 hours. If you are not sure that you will take the pills on time, set the alarm. When you skip one pill, you should take it if the skip time does not exceed 24 hours, otherwise the missed pill should be left and continue to be taken in standard mode, using condoms during intercourse.
In a pack of 21 tablets. After 3 weeks you need to take a break for a week. It is during this period should begin monthly.
The drug should be drunk at the same time of day.
How to stop taking contraceptives
Very often, the reason that after taking Regulon no menstruation, is the wrong end of the drug. Before abandoning the contraceptive, you should visit the doctor and consult if you can cancel the appointment now, especially if Regulon was prescribed for medical purposes, or you decided to plan the birth of the child.
If the patient cancels reception in the middle of a cycle, without having finished a pack up to the end, it will surely entail certain consequences.
These can be severe uterine bleeding or complete absence of menstruation over a long period. If after the end of the medication there is no menstruation, then the recovery cycle will take a long time.
Cancellation of the drug should occur according to the scheme drawn up by a gynecologist. This scheme will be different in each case. It is based on:
- personal characteristics of the body,
- course duration.
Violations of the menstrual cycle when using the drug
Each has its own monthly cycle and it does not change with the beginning of the use of oral contraceptive (OK). During the course of hormone-based medication, each woman’s body will react individually, therefore, after taking 21 tablets, menstruation may not come immediately. In the first 3 months of taking the drug, cycle disturbances can be observed while the body adapts and begins to function normally in the required mode. If after taking Regulon there are no menstrual periods within 10 days from the end of the pack, consult a doctor.
The reasons for this deviation from the norm can be important.
- Violation of diet, strong weight loss.
- Intoxication. Vomiting or diarrhea after a woman has taken a pill.
The delay will be observed when the hormonal background changes, due to the onset of pregnancy, or when the hormones are redistributed during stress. Often fertilization occurs when Regulus is misused. Even if the pills have not been missed, taking them at different times with an interval of an hour can provoke the appearance of hyperovulation. In this case, one of the eggs reaches the destination on time, and the second comes out at the end of menstruation without covering the hormonal agent and quickly fertilizes.
The most unpredictable factor is intoxication. When observing the rules of application, vomiting and diarrhea (in case of malfunction of the pancreas) do not allow hormones to spread into the plasma. This happens when 40 minutes have passed from the moment of taking the pill to vomiting or when there is severe diarrhea lasting for more than a day.
Strong stress provokes the release of hormones into the blood, disrupting the cyclical and already familiar rhythm of the body. Sharp weight loss, the most severe diets can provoke the absence of menstruation. Adipose tissue produces the female hormones estrogen. Women with too low weight very often go to doctors with complaints that they do not have periods. Fertilization with insufficient weight also does not occur, the body is not able to provide the embryo with the necessary amount of nutrients necessary for its full development.
Work of the body after the termination of the application of OK
To understand why there is no menstruation after canceling OK, you need to understand the principles of hormone production before and after using them. At the end of the reception of Regulon, the body needs another restructuring. Ovaries and adrenal glands in the period of taking the drug practically do not work, because the body receives the necessary hormones from the outside. The production of hormones is reduced, and the organs need time to restore their work, so there may not be a period for a couple of months.
In addition to the failure of the monthly withdrawal of the drug provokes other changes:
- hair loss, deterioration of their structural composition,
- impaired recovery of epidermal cells (dryness, peeling, itching).
The menstrual cycle can change a lot. Firstly, the volume of blood loss increases, and secondly, the timing changes. If earlier monthly went 2–3 days, then after the course termination 5–7 days can proceed.
This is the first version of the body. After stopping OK, there is a second option, which is observed in most patients.
With long-term suppression of the functions of the pituitary gland, the body tries to work in the same mode and after discontinuation of hormones. The pituitary gland, without receiving a backlash, begins to stimulate additional production of follicle-stimulating and luteinizing hormones.
Enhanced pituitary gland improves the functionality of the ovaries. With such a harmonious work of the organs, the likelihood of pregnancy increases. OK allow you to cure some types of infertility.
After drug withdrawal, hair may begin to fall out.
No monthly after Regulon
It is necessary to consult a doctor if there are no periods after the end of the course. Not only withdrawal syndrome, but also pregnancy can cause a delay. The reasons for the absence of menstruation after the abolition of medications are presented below.
- Amenorrhea - climax. OK cause this pathology extremely seldom. Only 3% of women of pre-menopausal age and young girls are at risk. Disturbance causes dysfunction of the endocrine and hormonal systems.
- Polycystic ovary or cystoma of the uterus.
- Diseases of the genitourinary system of an infectious nature.
If there is no menstruation after the end of the course or while taking OK, you should definitely consult a doctor and undergo a full examination. First of all, an obstetric examination of the cervix is performed, which allows determining the size of the ovaries and possible pathological formations on them.
Then an ultrasound and a blood test are indicated, showing the level of hormones. An additional examination may be prescribed, which will allow to determine ektsragenitalny pathology. If there are no periods, do not need to self-medicate. Sometimes for recovery after taking OK, additional vitamins and treatment are needed.
What is fraught with Regulon's cancellation?
When taking Regulon tablets, the hormonal system of a woman becomes accustomed to the fact that the adrenal glands and ovaries do not need to strain and work on the production of hormones, as they come from outside. With the abolition of taking Regulon in pills in the woman's body, serious changes begin to occur. The body needs a certain time in order to restructure itself and this may take several months.
The cycle can change a lot and there can be a normal situation when there are no monthly periods after the cancellation of Regulon. This situation is observed in a significant proportion of women after refusing to take contraceptives, while talking about withdrawal syndrome. Perhaps another development in the form of changes in the nature of the flow of menstruation. If while taking the drug, it was observed regularly and lasted for 2–3 days, then after its exclusion it can last up to 7 days. On what day they come monthly and the nature of the discharge is impossible to predict.
After refusing to take Regulon tablets, women often experience more than just failures in a previously adjusted monthly cycle. As a rule, the condition of the hair worsens, they become more fragile and there is a problem of their loss. The skin becomes dry, it may itch and peel. Women often begin to complain of mood swings, they have an increased sweat compartment, and the mammary glands may swell.
What causes a monthly delay?
Discontinuation of Regulon tablets is a frequent cause of the absence of a regul or cycle violation, but not the only one. According to common practice, a delay is considered to be a period of 10 days, after which one should apply for clarification of the reasons for its occurrence. The reason for this situation may be pregnancy, since refusal to take oral contraceptives increases the risk of its occurrence.
Among the common reasons for the absence of menstruation after the cancellation of Regulon include:
- amenorrhea, menopause - the onset of the period and the refusal to take contraceptive coincide quite rarely, but according to statistics, occurs in 3% of women, violations in the cycle are caused by disruptions in the endocrine system and hormonal changes,
- gynecological diseases - the delay can be caused by polycystic ovaries or a cyst of the uterus,
- oncological pathologies - tumor formations can lead to a delay in menstruation and are often detected during examinations, there are hormone-dependent cancers, so taking contraceptives can speed up and give an impetus to their development,
- infectious diseases - due to the negative impact of pathogenic flora on the urinary tract, malfunction of the reproductive system can be observed, gonorrhea, syphilis, and hepatitis are among the most common.
The nature of the discharge may be affected by the use of emergency contraception in the past, especially if it has been used more than 1 time per year. In some cases, the cycle may be affected by the use of other drugs.
Sometimes the absence of menstruation can be directly related to the habits and lifestyle of a woman, affecting the hormonal background. In some cases, monthly disruptions are due to rigid diets and excessive physical exertion. The desire to lose weight dramatically can lead to a redistribution of estrogen in the body, since adipose tissue is closely associated with female hormones.
Lack of weight and a sufficient amount of fat can cause a complete cessation of menstruation. In this regard, doctors do not recommend resorting to such methods of weight correction, since the result may be a whole list of negative consequences, ranging from metabolic disorders and hormonal levels.
In rare cases, severe stress and emotional shock can lead to a lack of regulation. This does not directly affect the hormones, but due to neurological disorders, the occurrence of a cycle failure is possible.
Strong nervous stress can affect the release of enzymes in the blood and changes in hormonal levels.
What is important to consider when discontinuing the drug?
The action of the contraceptive pill is based on the suppression of the pituitary hormones responsible for the normal cycle of menstruation. The drug contributes to the oppression of ovulation and provides interference to the penetration of sperm into the uterus, which reduces the likelihood of pregnancy.
A barrier is achieved by changing hormonal levels, increasing the density of cervical mucus and changing its composition. After sexual intercourse is completed, the spermatozoa enter the environment that is aggressive for them and cannot freely reach their destination. The drug leads to inhibition of the maturation of the egg, deprives the corpus luteum to develop normally and contributes to the rupture of the follicles. Normally, the thickness of the endometrium is 1 cm, taking Regulon reduces its value to 4 mm, which does not give the fetal egg a firm hold. In addition, the contraceptive reduces the ability of the fallopian tubes to reduce, which leads to a decrease in the rate of passage of the egg.
After the cancellation of Regulon, the body loses such protection. In this case, the pituitary gland does not have time to reorganize, the ovaries resume their work and against this background, the probability of becoming pregnant is high. This feature of the body is often used for problems of conception, therefore, contraceptives are often appointed for these purposes.
In connection with such features, it is necessary to ensure that the absence of regulators and the delay are not associated with the onset of pregnancy. The probability of conception also increases in case of violation of oral contraceptive use, skipping even one pill can cause a splash of homons and over-ovulation and lead to pregnancy.
The situation of skipping pills is not always associated with the forgetfulness of a woman, in some cases it can be predetermined by poisoning and vomiting, when a woman can not pay attention to the fact that as a result the body did not receive the required amount of the drug.
The situation of the occurrence of pregnancy while taking Regulon is not critical, since the drug does not affect the health of the future baby.
Discontinuation of contraceptive drugs is quite a serious step. You can not interrupt the course at any desired time and stop in the middle of the package. It is necessary to drink all the pills, it is advisable to pre-consult a doctor. If you refuse the drug, you should resort to other methods of contraception, thus avoiding unwanted conception. In order to make sure that the delay is not associated with pregnancy, it is enough to make a test or pass the analysis for hCG.
What should be done?
The reasons for not starting monthly regulon pills can be quite a lot. To exclude negative consequences, it is necessary to consult a doctor and undergo a complex of examinations. Finding out the true cause of the delay will help:
- obstetric examination of the uterus, the identification of deviations in the size of the ovaries and formations,
- blood test for hormones,
- collecting smear on crops of flora,
- specific examinations for the definition of extragenital pathologies.
In the absence of regul, one cannot self-medicate and try to cause them artificially, since this is fraught with complications and bleeding. The body needs a certain time for the natural recovery process and the normalization of the reproductive system. In some cases, to restore the cycle of menstruation it is necessary to support the body in the form of prescribing a complex of vitamins or treatment.
Lack of regulation after refusing to take oral contraceptives is a common situation and occurs in a significant proportion of women.On which day the menstruation begins after the cancellation of Regulone pills depends on the individual characteristics of the organism, and it may take several months to completely restructure the hormonal background. To exclude negative consequences, it is important to exclude other causes of delay, including pregnancy and the development of gynecological diseases.
Action of contraceptive drugs
The main purpose of contraceptive drugs is the elimination of favorable conditions for conceiving an unplanned child. In their composition there is a large number of so-called female hormones that affect the work of the ovaries. These contraceptives affect the ovulation process, slow it down or completely block it. In addition, their action is aimed at changing the structure of the uterine mucosa and genital tract, making it more dense and viscous. This condition of the membranes prevents the invasion of sperm into the fallopian tube. At the same time, the uterus shell itself becomes thinner - if the egg cell fertilizes, the embryo does not consolidate. Therefore, after taking contraceptives, the delay is not surprising.
There are also combined contraceptives that combine both the male hormone (progestin) and the female hormone (estrogen). In the body of a woman, the ovaries from puberty to the period of menopause produce estrogen. Its greatest concentration occurs in ovulation, the pill reduces this level of the hormone, preventing the maturation of the egg.
Combined contraceptives can be monophasic - the whole intake is one level of hormones, and three-phase - during the menstrual cycle, a set of hormones is different. All combined funds are qualified for:
- Microdose appointed nerzhavavshim girls who just started to live sex life. Minor doses of hormones in these drugs do not violate the menstrual cycle, reception is not accompanied by side effects, the delay is unlikely.
- Low dose drugs are used when for some reason a small dosage of hormones does not affect the girl's body.
- High dosage Contraceptives are used to treat serious hormonal disorders in women of middle and old age.
- Progestin tablets - It is a contraceptive for nursing mothers. In their composition there is no estrogen.
When choosing contraceptive drugs, it is important to consider the age of the woman, the presence or absence of hormonal disorders, and the fact of pregnancy and childbirth. This is required so that after taking contraceptives a delay does not become a symptom of a serious problem with the body.
What to expect after the cancellation of contraceptives?
Against the background of discontinuation of hormonal drugs, ovarian activity is activated. Due to the fact that the flow of gestagens and estrogens stopped, the body begins to prepare for ovulation. The pituitary gland regains the ability to produce hormones that stimulate follicle maturation.
A woman may observe symptoms of contraceptive withdrawal:
- Delayed menstruation,
- frequent mood swings
- the period of menstrual bleeding increases with time or decreases,
- severe abdominal pain,
- active sebaceous glands.
At the end of the intake of contraceptive drugs, the ovulation process stabilizes in 1-2 years. By this time, the woman can already plan pregnancy and is preparing to replenish the family, the whole period is possible slight delay of menstruation. But there are cases when pregnancy occurs immediately after the abolition of contraceptives. This happens due to too vigorous ovary activity after a long stagnation. Also, successful fertilization depends on the time of reception of contraceptives. Thus, a woman taking the drug for less than six months can quickly become a mother after the cancellation. Protection of more than 3 years significantly increases this time. Gynecologists recommend to abandon hormonal contraceptives for 6 months before the desired date of conception. This period, under favorable conditions, will have enough reproductive function for full recovery.
The body of a healthy woman begins to function normally within 3 months after giving up contraceptives. But hormonal drugs are prescribed not only to protect against unwanted pregnancy. They are taken for the treatment of endometriosis, fibroids, uterine bleeding and other diseases. In such a situation, it is impossible to completely refuse contraceptive drugs until recovery.
Pill Cancellation Policy
Some women independently decide to stop taking hormone pills, and face the whole bunch of symptoms of such withdrawal. After taking contraceptives, menstruation delay will be the first result of an abnormal effect. This can not be done categorically, even if the hormonal background functioned stably before taking it, without failures.
Adhering to only three rules for the cancellation of contraceptives, the woman ensures the minimum response of the body and eliminates the delay:
- The end of the medication should be coordinated with your doctor after a thorough examination and analysis.
- Before you stop taking, you should end the cycle
- Prohibited a sharp rejection of hormonal drugs. A special dosage reduction scheme prepared by a physician is required.
Also, do not independently switch to other copies of birth control pills. Predicting how an organism will react to this shift is impossible. Therefore, the correct choice of means and actions during the transition will help determine the doctor. And it is very important to choose the same specialist who prescribed previous contraceptives.
A woman should understand that interrupting the course of taking the drug is fraught with serious consequences for her health. Such as:
- Menstrual disorder,
- heavy uterine bleeding,
- unplanned pregnancy.
You must take all the pills from the pack according to a given scheme, wait for the onset of menstruation. At the end of it, another week must pass for the safe administration of a new drug.
Delay after Clyra
The composition of Klayra is substantially close to the natural hormones of the human body. After taking the drug side effects occur in very rare cases. If, after the cancellation occurs delayed menstruation, then the woman should be patient. After taking contraceptives, the delay to the next menstrual cycle will pass, there will be a spotting according to the timing. But they can be more abundant than usual. You should not be afraid, after 2–3 months the situation stabilizes.
How much time may delay
Long-term use of contraceptives teaches the woman's body to exist according to an artificial scheme. In it, the reproductive function is in a sleepy state, and the ovaries are not able to produce the required amount of hormones. In such a situation, you should not be surprised at the delay. The body will need some time to fully recover. The duration of the process depends on the individual characteristics of the woman and the duration of exposure to contraceptives. Sometimes it happens that a woman returns the ability to fertilize already in the next menstrual cycle after the abolition of contraceptives.
And in some women, after taking contraceptives, the delay lasts more than a year. In advanced cases, hormonal failure becomes chronic, and only a doctor will be able to prescribe adequate treatment. Most often you have to go back to hormone therapy, while the gynecologist can artificially cause menstruation. In such a situation, a woman needs to prepare for a rather long treatment to restore reproductive function.
Contraceptive drugs in any case cause a delay in menstruation. Whether it is a slight postponement of monthly bleeding or a long period of absence, women are advised to listen to their feelings and adhere to the rules of contraceptive withdrawal. This will help eliminate the development of complications in the future, and not blame yourself for futile attempts to get pregnant.
Regulon is an oral contraceptive consisting of ethinyl estradiol (estrogen component) progestin, desogestrel. The drug is prescribed for contraception, for the treatment of hormonal imbalances in the body. It is effective in the treatment of PMS, dysfunctional uterine bleeding.
The drug inhibits the hormones produced by the pituitary gland, which affect the normal flow of menstruation. The development of follicle-stimulating, luteinizing hormone is suspended under the action of gestagens. As a result, ovulation is inhibited, the sperm can not penetrate into the uterus.
Ethinyl estradiol tightens, changes the composition of mucus secreted in the cervix uterus. Sperm gets into the aggressive environment, it can not penetrate the uterus. At the same time, maturation of the egg cell is inhibited, the corpus luteum cannot develop normally, there is an obstacle to the rupture of the follicle. Endometrium develops in insufficient size. In a woman who does not take COCIs, the thickness of the endometrial layer normally reaches 1 cm. If oral contraceptives are accepted, the thickness of the layer is not more than 4 mm.
If the sperm and the egg can connect, despite the barriers that appear, the fetal egg simply cannot attach to the uterus, it will not receive the necessary food from the thin endometrium. Regulon action extends, affects the fallopian tubes. Their contractility decreases, which causes a decrease in the rate of passage of the egg.
How to take
Regulon, like all oral contraceptives should be properly taken. This will eliminate the occurrence of undesirable consequences. Reception begins from the first day of the beginning of the menstrual cycle. If this rule is observed, the woman does not need additional contraception during sexual intercourse.
In some cases, the first pill must be taken during menstruation at 2-5 days. In this case, you need to take care of additional means of protection. It is better to use the barrier method for another 1 week. It is forbidden to start taking Regulon if 5 or more days have passed after the end of menstruation. In this case, the reception is transferred to the beginning of the next cycle.
Every day at about the same time you need to take 1 tablet of blister. The established schedule prevents the risk of hyperovulation, a condition in which several eggs can mature on the background of a hormonal surge. The time difference for taking pills should not be more than 1 hour. Gynecologists recommend setting alarm clocks until a precise habit is developed.
If the pill was not taken on time, you need to drink it as soon as it comes to the realization of being late. If the period of the pass exceeds a day, you need to leave the forgotten pill, take the next one, but additionally use barrier contraception during sex.
It is necessary to take 21 tablets without a break, then take a break for 7 days. Monthly begin in this period. The next pack should start drinking after a week in the same way, even if your period is not over.
How to finish the course
Before you finish taking the drug, you need to consult with a gynecologist. A reguon can be appointed for medical purposes, so it is not always possible to finish its reception at any time.
It is forbidden to stop taking the drug in the middle of the pack, you need to finish all the pills, then refuse from further use of the pills. If you ignore the recommendation, you can provoke a failure of the menstrual cycle, which will then be restored for a long time. It is impossible to exclude uterine bleeding in such a situation.
Gynecologist will help to safely finish taking the medication by developing a special scheme for the woman. This takes into account the general state of health, the purpose for which the drug was prescribed, the total duration of its administration.
Monthly while taking medication
When taking Regulon, menstruation begins during the period of cancellation, when a woman drinks the last 21st pill and takes a break for 7 days. During the first 3 months, the organism adapts to the drug, there may be intermenstrual scanty discharge. This is not a reason for a sharp refusal to take pills and is considered the norm. For prevention, you can visit the gynecologist.
If after taking the last pill a week has passed and there is a delay in your period, you should consult a doctor. The reason may be hiding in the individual reaction of the body, hormonal failure. Pregnancy cannot be ruled out if the drug was disrupted.
Fear should cause a state where menstruation does not end at the usual time, there is a copiousness of discharge. It is forbidden to stop drinking pills by yourself, you must first consult a gynecologist, find the cause of the problem.
In the normal period, when Regulon is established within 3 months, the organism is fully adapted, the hormonal level is leveled. A woman notices relief, complete disappearance of PMS symptoms, decreases the intensity of pain during this period. The duration of menstruation may decrease, as well as profusion. In the presence of side effects, deterioration, bleeding, you need to consult a doctor. Self-treatment is strictly prohibited.
Changes in the body after discontinuation
During the reception of Regulon, the body receives hormones from the outside, as a result, the work of the ovaries, adrenal glands is gradually inhibited, because for some time they are going to be oppressed. After the drug is discontinued, hormonal failure occurs, reorganization of the reproductive system begins. There may be a delay in menstruation, cycle failures.
An insufficient amount of the required hormones in the body not only leads to menstrual disorders. The condition of hair, nails worsens, the skin becomes dry, and rashes often occur. The nature of the monthly changes. They can be more abundant, long.
There is another nature of changes in the body after the abolition of the contraceptive. When the suppression of the pituitary gland is stopped, it begins to work first in the former mode, and then with a double force, sending all the developed hormones directly to the ovaries, which were also in a "dormant" state for a long time. As a result, they are activated, enhancing the work. During this period, the chance of becoming pregnant increases, as women often aspire to. Oral contraceptives - an effective tool in the treatment of infertility.
Delay after cancellation of Regulon
Many women have unstable periods after the abolition of Regulon. This is often due to hormonal disruption, called withdrawal syndrome. We can not exclude the onset of pregnancy, because the pituitary and ovaries begin to work twice as active. The possibility of fertilization will increase significantly.
In addition, the delay after taking Regulon can be caused by:
- Amenorrhea, climax. This pathology occurs in 3% of women taking the drug. Those who are on the threshold of menopause and girls of childbearing age fall into this category. Pathology develops due to the incorrect operation of the hormonal system.
- If menstruation should begin, but there is a delay, you cannot exclude uterine fibroids, polycystic ovaries.
- Diseases of oncological nature can be the cause of the absence of menstruation.
- Infectious diseases of the genitourinary system can cause a delay.
Normally, menstruation should go a few days after taking the last 21st tablet of Regulon. If there is a delay, you should consult a doctor, find the cause of the problem. Self-treatment, ignoring the situation can cause the development of pathological processes in the body. Gynecologist will help determine the causes of delayed menstruation, sometimes enough ultrasound, examination and course of vitamins.
Regulon is an effective contraceptive with therapeutic effect. The drug is prescribed only by the gynecologist, the doctor also determines the discontinuation. Self-medication, violation of the recommendations for taking the drug may adversely affect the reproductive health of women.
Indications for the cancellation of Regulon
Regulon is a hormonal contraceptive drug used for planned contraception. In addition to protection against unwanted pregnancy, the drug normalizes the menstrual cycle and reduces the severity of PMS symptoms. However, in some cases, the completion of the drug is required:
- if a woman wants to get pregnant,
- if a woman does not lead an active sex life,
- if the side effects of Regulon were disturbing,
- if additional barrier contraception is needed,
- if a woman became pregnant while taking Regulon.
Medical indications for discontinuing birth control pills:
- liver disease,
- arterial hypertension,
- varicose veins,
- malignant neoplasms,
- diseases of the organ of vision
- upcoming operations.
После отказа от контрацептива в течение 2-3 месяцев восстанавливается репродуктивная функция женщины, то есть возобновляется связь между корой головного мозга, гипоталамусом, гипофизом и яичниками. Gradually, the ovaries begin to function: an egg cell matures, ovulation occurs, and then, if there is no pregnancy, the corpus luteum remains. This whole process is accompanied by the release of its own hormones.
A healthy woman who took the drug for contraception should not have adverse effects after it is canceled. But each woman is individual, and one cannot be absolutely sure that there will be no side effects. The rate of resumption of ovulation processes after the end of the contraceptive intake depends on the properties of the drug, the age and health status of the woman, and most importantly, on the duration of the drug intake.
Menstrual cycle after the abolition of Regulon
At the end of the drug, the menstrual cycle is restored within 1-3 months. It is possible that the symptoms of PMS will reappear (headache, weakness, irritability), the pain syndrome will resume or these manifestations will become less pronounced. It all depends on how strong these manifestations were originally.
At first, menstruation can be scanty, their volume is not much increased after the failure of the contraceptive. But after three months, the volume of discharge returns to normal and becomes as it was before taking the drug. The duration of poor monthly periods in the first 1-3 cycles ranges from 7 to 14 days.
In the event that a woman stops taking a contraceptive in the middle of the package, a brown smear is possible for up to two weeks. They are provoked by a sharp drop in the level of sex hormones in the middle of the menstrual cycle.
In general, in the first three months, the body is rebuilt, and there can be both scanty (which happens more often) and copious periods. The reason for the appeal to the gynecologist should be too long scanty discharge (more than 2 weeks) or copious periods, accompanied by weakness and pain in the lower abdomen.
When to wait for monthly after Regulon cancel?
After the last tablet is taken out of the package, the menstruation should begin within 1-3 days, if the contraceptive has not been received for too long (6 months or more). And after a long course of taking the contraceptive drug, it is possible to delay the menstrual period for several months, until the body begins to produce its own hormones again.
Why, after the cancellation of Regulon, there are no periods?
It happens that the withdrawal bleeding does not occur. After long-term administration of COCs, the female body needs time to resume the production of its own hormones. We can not exclude pregnancy, as the reason for the absence of menstruation. If the pregnancy is not confirmed, and there is no menstruation for 3 or more cycles, then it is possible that this is a manifestation of secondary amenoria.
Secondary amenorrhea develops on the background of ovarian hyper retardation syndrome in 0.7% of women. This small percentage includes women who, most often before the start of taking Regulon, already had menstrual dysfunction. Another reason for the development of secondary amenorrhea: taking reserpine, phenothiazine, or drugs in conjunction with taking Regulon.
The mechanism of ovarian hyper-inhibition consists in blocking the synthesis of GnRH by the hypothalamus and the development of hyperprolactinemia.
Ovarian hyperhidrosis syndrome confirms the results of ultrasound (multifollicular ovaries and hypoplastic endometrium, no more than 4-5 mm) and the results of the study of hormones (FSH levels, LH and estradiol below normal).
Scanty periods after the cancellation of Regulon
Scanty periods in a few days after giving up COCs, this is a normal reaction of the body to the changed hormonal background. If a pregnancy has developed while taking the drug, then it may also manifest itself at first with scanty bleeding.
Spotting after Regulon's abolition
Spotting after the abolition of the hormonal contraceptive - a withdrawal syndrome, which is a normal reaction of the female body, discharge can go up to 14 days. Their duration depends
- from the age of the patient: the older she is, the longer the spotting takes place,
- on the duration of the drug: the longer the reception, the longer the discharge.
Bleeding after Regoulon is canceled
Against the background of prolonged inhibition of ovarian function, the vessels feeding the walls of the uterus become thinner. When hormone levels fall, and menstruation begins, these vessels can be severely damaged and cause breakthrough bleeding. This side effect of the drug in compliance with the rules of admission is rare. But if a woman canceled the drug in the middle of a package, breakthrough bleeding is more common.
Pregnancy after the cancellation of Regulon
If a woman took a contraceptive for 3-4 months, then she can become pregnant in the first month after completing the course. In this case, pregnancy is often accompanied by the fertilization of two eggs and the birth of twins.
With more prolonged use of contraceptives, it is recommended to wait for the restoration of the normal menstrual cycle (up to 3 months), and then plan a pregnancy.
If, after the cancellation of Regulon, the menstruation disappeared, you need not to delay the campaign with the doctor. The specialist will conduct a survey, determine the level of production and the ratio of hormones in the blood.
When the patient finishes taking oral contraceptives, her body is rebuilt. Under the influence of the drug, the work of the ovaries and adrenal glands slows down significantly, because the sex hormones regularly come with pills. To normalize the work of these bodies will take some time, sometimes 2 months or more.
The consequences of canceling OK besides delaying menstruation can be:
- The deterioration of the hair, loss,
- Dry skin
- Peeling and itching.
The nature of the period also varies greatly. Bleeding may become more abundant, its duration will increase. While taking hormone pills, menstruation lasts only 2-3 days. After cancellation - 5-7 days.
However, such consequences do not occur in every patient. In some women, the functions of the depressed pituitary work remain after the drug is discontinued. This stimulates the production of hormones responsible for the production of follicles.
The functionality of the ovaries improves, and the probability of successful fertilization increases significantly. Doctors often use courses Regulon for effective treatment of infertility.
The effect of contraceptive drugs on menstruation
As a result of the use of birth control pills, which include hormones, certain changes occur in the body. The principle of action of contraceptives as follows:
- pituitary glands begin to block active substances responsible for the functioning of the reproductive system,
- follicle maturation slows down, and as a result - the lack of ovulation,
- the ability of the fallopian tubes to diminish is suppressed, and for this reason the spermatozoa cannot move freely,
- the cervical fluid acquires a viscous and dense texture, which is why spermatozoa cannot penetrate into the uterus,
- the structure of the endometrium changes and it becomes impossible to fix a fertilized egg.
With the development of processes that occur in the body and are caused by taking the drug, menstruation becomes different. Especially noticeable changes during the first menstrual period while taking birth control pills. Discharges become abundant or overly scarce.
Due to hormonal changes, the appearance of menstruation may be slightly ahead of time or late. Changes and its duration. This largely depends on the state of health of the woman and the individual characteristics of the organism. Wary of it is worth if when taking contraceptives began period and do not end.

Sometimes menstruation does not begin after the end of the package (21 tablets). For the first three cycles, this phenomenon is considered normal.
Often there is a complete absence of menstruation when receiving OK for a long period. Such a failure cycle does not cause any concerns. The body needs time to get used to the action of contraceptives. Once the concentration of estrogen returns to normal, menstruation will return on its own.
