Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I have been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and prescribed Signora 21 medication. However, I have noticed that my bleeding is less than usual. Can you please explain why this is happening?


Answered by Ms. Maryam Reinsch


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder characterized by an imbalance in male hormones in women. This hormonal imbalance can lead to various menstrual irregularities and other symptoms such as acne, hair loss, and increased body hair. It is essential to recognize that PCOS is a prevalent condition among women of childbearing age, and you are not alone in experiencing these challenges.


Your medication, Signora 21, is commonly prescribed to manage symptoms associated with PCOS. However, it is crucial to be aware of the potential side effects of this medication. Some known side effects of Signora 21 include nausea, vomiting, headache, bloating, breast tenderness, fluid retention (swelling of the ankles/feet), and changes in weight. Importantly, one of the documented side effects is vaginal bleeding between periods or irregular periods.


It is possible that the reduction in your bleeding is a result of the medication's impact on your menstrual cycle. The irregularity or absence of bleeding may occur as a side effect of Signora 21. However, it is essential to monitor your symptoms closely and communicate any concerns with your healthcare provider.


If you continue to experience significant changes in your bleeding pattern or have any other symptoms or questions, I encourage you to schedule a consultation with your healthcare provider. They can provide personalized guidance and adjustments to your treatment plan based on your individual needs and response to medication.
