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.
