Brief Answer:
effects are unclear.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.

The effect of meth on menstruation is not clear.

But biologically it can affect menses. It can delay menses.

Meth can thus be a possible reason if you have missed your period (assuming there are no other medical causes).

Hope this help.

Take care.
Thanks.

Hey There
It is my first time on the generic trigestrel pill, I did not start with my menstruation. I also feel very tired at night.
Will the trigestrel pill make me moody, will it only takes a while for the pills to work with my hormones?
How many days after i drink the pill is it same to do it without a condom?

My daughter had an abortion seven weeks ago and is still bleeding and clotting. She has been to her gynocologist with these issues but still is having the problem. She had an ultrasound and blood work done to see if she was still pregnant or had pregnancy tissue left in her uterus. The doctornsaid she is fine and the bleeding will stop. Some times it stops but when least expected she will bleeds through her clothes profusely. Her tampon comes out and so does large clots with bright red blood. It is not her period! She is seeing her doctor tomorrow for more answers to this issue. Could there have been damage to her uterus during the abortion? I think her doctor wants to do an abalation? /D&C? Do you think this is the answer or do you have any other recommendations. She can t live a normal life at the moment because of this excessive and unpredictable bleeding. Thank you for your help.
