User:Hi, I have taken primolut N to delay my periods for few days. I got my periods on 14thDec, 2012 but It's different this time. I feeling hungry all the time and feeling giddy. I feel I have put on weight in last few weeks. I am going through Infertility stress (husband side) and last 2 weeks has been a very stressful time due to this. Please suggest if this giddiness and feverish feeling is normal while having periods or anything to care for ?
User:yah I dropped a query and then realised this 'Live chat' option
Doctor:If this was your query, I shall try and post this on ask a doctor for a gynecologist to respond.
Doctor:Anyway, the symptoms you report,
Doctor:Feeling giddy and hungry can be due to primolut N.
Doctor:However if you are feeling feverish along we also would like to rule out general infection
Doctor:as infection can also explain the symptoms.
User:ok actually i didnt have these symptoms when I took this medicine
User:but having it after stopping them
Doctor:Primolut N contains progesterone like hormone
Doctor:which is the same hormone that causes pregnancy like symptoms or premenstrual symptoms.
Doctor:These known side effects gradually fade away with time.
Doctor:However as I said, if you also are running fever, then you could be dealing with infection
Doctor:which is unrelated to the medication.
Doctor:Hope it is clear to you.
Doctor:Do you have any other query?
User:yah thanks no other query
Doctor:I shall also post your query to a gynecologist as you intended earlier
Doctor:you can continue the discussion along with them.
Doctor:Thanks for consulting me.
Doctor:Bye for now.
