Hi silverqueen

Yes you should have been given Femoston 1/10 or 2/10 if you haven't been one years without a period or if under 54. I would go back and get the cyclical version.

The thing is the conti won't do you any harm but if you are still peri then the fluctuations in your own hormones can cause irregular bleeding which is annoying, so it is better to keep a cycle when you will generally know when the bleeding will be.
