Query from: Anonymous, malanadu, 09/29/07
Topic: HEALTH      Submitted on: Ammas.com
Subject: Duoluton-L side effects?

I had polycystic ovaries and heavy bleeding during periods. Hence, my doc prescribed Novelon for 7 months and all was fine. Recently, she changed it to Duoluton-L as a contraceptive pill cum cyst reducer. Now, my bleeding is very less. Is this OK? How long can I continue taking this without affecting my chances of becoming pregnant?

This pill dozage is used as an emergency contraceptive pills, also to control Polycystic Ovary.An ovarian cyst is any collection of fluid, surrounded by a very thin wall, within an ovary. Any ovarian follicle that is larger than about two centimeters is termed an ovarian cyst. An ovarian cyst can be as small as a pea, or as large as a grapefruit.

Most ovarian cysts are functional in nature, and harmless (benign).[1] In the US ovarian cysts are found in nearly all premenopausal women, and in up to 14.8% of postmenopausal women. The incidence of ovarian carcinoma is approximately 15 cases per 100,000 women per year.[2]

Ovarian cysts affect women of all ages. They occur most often, however, during a woman's childbearing years.Some ovarian cysts cause problems, such as bleeding and pain. Surgery may be required to remove those cysts.

If you are succeed to get in control the cysts then there is no need to worry. check with the ovulation and periods to get it time for at least 6 months and try to get pregnancy at these times. You have to get in contact with your gynecologist/infertility specialist for the continuation of the pills and whatever steps to be taken to get conceived at the earliest. Since this pills is working as an emergency contraception/contraceptive pills it will reduce your pregnancy chance while in use of the same. There for after getting fully normal then you have to discontinue its use in order to try to get conceived.

BIRTH CONTROL PILLS: an ideal method immediately after the marriage. You can use them at a stretch, references quote up to 10 years if you are a non-smoker, but up to 3 years is acceptable. Birth control pills are the number one choice of young women. They are very effective because they prevent pregnancy in several different ways: They prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg. They make the cervical mucous thick so the sperm can't swim inside. They make the lining of the uterus thin so the egg can't stick. They are very effective, Failure rate is 0.3%. It's easy for most women to take one pill a day.

Additional benefits of the OC pills are: Menstrual periods are more regular, lighter, shorter and less painful. Blood loss is reduced, so the chance of iron deficiency anemia is much less. They reduce the probability of developing endometriosis. The chance of ectopic pregnancy (which can require major surgery) is reduced. They are reasonably priced. The effects are reversible and you can conceive later.

However the OC pills do have some side effects: Nausea, vomiting at the beginning but wanes off gradually. Dizziness, light heartedness. Needs to be taken everyday. Some small solace here- if you miss one probably you can take two on next day without bringing down the efficacy. You probably can not take pills if you are suffering from heart ailment, have had jaundice in the last six months or so, deep vein thrombosis (pain in the calf muscles- one of the signs), diabetes mellitus(optional). You better be away from the pills if you happen to have family history of uterine or ovarian cancer. If you are above 35 years of age. The age bracket reduces further if are a smoker. If you are using contact lenses- the chances are they fall off because these pills cause corneal edema. Some of the trade names available in market are TRIQUILAR, OVRAL-L, OVRAL, DUOLUTON, LOETTE, NOVELON, MALA-D, MALA-N, CHOICE----- the list is by no means complete. During breast feeding, Oral contraceptives may not be the best of choices.

Yes, this is okay. The bleeding you get taking any contraceptive is not important, in fact it's "fake bleeding" because your body doesn't ever really release an egg. So whether you see it or not, the same thing is happening inside your body, and it's fine. Even some pills can make you have the bleeding only three or four times a year instead of monthly and they're approved by doctors. You can take it indefinitely and it doesn't affect your chance to get pregnant at all. In fact some studies have shown women who were on contraceptive pills conceived more quickly after stopping the pills than women who'd never taken them, and the experience of some of my friends agrees with this!

Hope your PCOs and hormone problems improve.

The possible side effects of using Duoluton-L are:

Headache, clotting disorder, weight changes Fluid retention, mood changes, gastro-intestinal upset Breast enlargement, cramps in legs, vaginal discharge High blood pressure, skin reactions, liver function disorder.

I don't think Duoluton-L has any effect on bleeding.It is better you have a check up with your doctor and confirm about continuing the medicine.

As an ayurvedic doctor, I have chance to treat so many PCOD patients. My experience suggests that it can be well managed by ayurvedic medicines with out any side effects. You have to follow a special diet, some exercises and medicines. Medicines which are effective are following. Tab Gynaven, Tab sagarlic, Eranda sukumaram, Ritu ranjini lehyam, Kalyanaka ghritham. You can avail free consultation at http://www.ayurvedaforall.com…

Dear,

yes, it is ok. Actually, most if not all contraceptive pills make periods lighter. Do not worry about it. You can take this for a few years safely but after that may want to discuss a change with your doctor.

Good luck!

Hi,

The medication you are on, is ideal and helpful. Your chances for pregnancy starts after the doctor stops Duoluton completely.
