No, you're still not getting what I'm saying. I took the pill to stop the bleeding which was happening for several weeks, and after I was done with the course I didn't take it any more after that. It's been months since then, and since then I have had "normal" periods, as in they occurred at the typical 28-30something day cycles. And I actually DO have PCOS that's been diagnosed. But whatever, you're going to think that I'm advocating for regular usage of the pill anyway.
No, I don't think your advocating regular usage, I'm correcting your misunderstanding of what the pill does.
I understand you completely. You said:
I know that for some people, being on the pill does help regulate periods.
THIS is what I am arguing against. It is impossible for the pill to "regulate" periods. A regular period is one that happens after ovulation, moderately, and doesn't even have to be that "regular" time wise as it is a healthy thing for ovulation to be delayed due to stress and other things.
When the pill shuts down ovulation, one does not have a period at all. It can't be regular when one doesn't have a period.
