Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Oxy ellite pro does have side effects which includes disturbance in the menstrual cycles. The pill can delay / prepone period or result in excessive menstrual flow.

The gynecological side effects are not seen in all, if encountered the medication has to be stopped immediately to avoid further worsening. It is believed that the menstrual irregularities seen when on Oxy ellite pro occur due to uncontrolled fat catabolism which leads to imbalance in the female hormones. Most of the hormones especially sex hormones are derivatives of lipids derived from consumed fat.

I recommend you to stop the medication and consult your Gynecologist who can examine you and plan a treatment to set your cycles to normal frequency.

I do not think Caffeine you consume is by any chance cause for menstrual irregularities. I also suggest you to cut down on the consumption of the red bull beverage - it isn't healthy too.

Hope I answered your query. Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Regards,

Recent questions on  Combined oral contraceptive pill

I'm 23 year old male and I recently started having trouble cumming. I recently started having sex for the first time like 2 months ago. before that I used to cum a lot more, it was thicker, and it would shot out. now its thin, clear, and very little just drips out. it seems like its just pre-cum cause of how little come out. I masturbate a lot but before I start having sex it was all normal no matter how much I did it I would cum every time and my normal amount. one time she was doing oral and I came a lot, even shot pretty far but it was clear and haven't done it since. sometimes we get finished without me cumming and I masturbate almost right after and I cum pretty well but its still clear. two or three weeks before I started having sex, I started taking these pills to increase blood flow to your penis and make you harder longer. I was also doing penis exercises to increase size 3 times a week but stopped after first time I had sex cause she already liked the size, so I figured I didn't need it. I was cumming normal even when I was doing the exercises, when I masturbated but not since I started having sex and stopped the exercises. Still taking the pills, figure I still want to last longer and be harder. The pills seem to work cause I do get hard a lot more often and more easily. Not sure if its harder though, never really paid attention to that but it doesn‘t seem less hard then before. I was able to cum like normal when I was doing the exercises for those two or three week but could I have done permanent damage? If so why would it start happening only after I stopped and started having sex? Could the increased blood flow from the pills be the problem? Should I stop taking the pills or maybe stop masturbating ? Is it more serous?

Hi, for the past 5 yrs ive been on the contreception pill microgynon. Ive suffered from a high pulse rate and palpitations ever since. I never thought that the pill can make this happen untill i googled it. My doctor never mentioned that it could so for the past yr ive been having regular ECGs because ive been worried about my heart rate and its getting worse. Also people say im a very anxiuos person, can this all be because of the pill? Going to see my gp tomorow again because of my heart rate, shall i mention this to him?
