Are all cases of irregular heart beat serious ?

I am slightly over weight, I am taking Cerazzette (POP)contraceptive pill and I am 24 years of age. I have just discovered that my heart seems to be missing a beat after every 20 or so beats, I am under some stress at the moment but didn t think it was really affecting me adversely until now. Any ideas?

I think the doctor will be able to answer that. I know that some medications have possible side effects with few people. Check the leaflet or pack that came with your tablets. Then go to the doctors just to make sure.

Good evening. I suffer from irregular heart beats especially during the evening. I really annoys me. It s been some 30 years since I had the very first episode. I usually feel them for a day or two and I feel better afterwards. But lately say mid January I feel them almost everyday. I do not know if it carries risks but I am very very concerned. Any help please?

My husband who is 72 felt dizzy and fainted yesterday morning. He was nauseated and after talking to my doctor we went to ER. They said he had an irregular heartbeat, they gave him a blood thinner and a medication to even the rhythm. They kept him for evaluation and further tests today. Is this something that could be very serious?

I take the contraceptive pill yaz 24+4. I finished my placebo pills and started taking the new pills on Friday 9th of February. I still dont have my period yet and I took two pregnancy tests which already came up negative. Over the last month I have been regularly taking the following medication: Paracetamol with codeine , Imigran, domperidon, tylenol and something else for heartburn. Is it possible this combination has affected my cycle? (the medicine has been because I suffered a concussion about 5 weeks ago which had long lasting side effects) Thanks and Regards

Dear Doctor,

I am using contraceptive pills for years and I after a break, I am changing brand and starting to use Microgynon. As I have moved to China, I bought these pills - same, but another brand, chinese one (levonorgestrel 0,15mg and ethinyloestradiol 0,03mg) and it has 22 pills that should be taken from the 5th day of the period and again wait for 5th day of the next period for another package. This is confusing to me and I'm not sure when does the protection start, so I am wondering can I start to take them as we do it on the West - 21 days from the 1st day of period + 7 days break? Thank you
