I took the emergency pill Nordette twice during March and got bleeding/spotting after taking the pills on (wasn t sure if it was my period) on March 6 and March 26. So far, I have not gotten my real period once during April and I am worried that I am pregnant. However, last Tuesday, I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. Other than the late/missed period, I have no other symptoms of pregnancy. Should I take another pregnancy test?

Hi, i am having problems with my menstrual cycle. Ususally they are abnormal and i bleed more often than i should. However, i still always get my period on my 7 day break from my contraceptive pill. This was due 6 days ago and it has still not appeared, which is very strange. I took a pregnancy test 2 days after my period was due and it come back negative. I don t feel pregnant in any way, but i have woke this morning with severe dizziness and headache. Do you have any idea what this problem can be? Thank you, Amanda.

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

Hi me and my bf had unprotected sex last month before my period and due to my work schedule I wasn t able to visit the clinic until the following Monday which was the fifth day afterwards after I took the pill I had sore breast, hot flashes and lower back pain then I got what I thought was my period which was extremely lighter then normal and brown. Usually my period last about 6or 7 days this last time it was about 4 to 5 pasty, dark brown, and some days wouldn t bleed at all then spot the next. I took a test (a cheap 99 cent store one) and it said negative. This month it s time for me to have my period again and I have no signs of it coming. No bloating, salt craving, mood swing, sharp pains...nothing. I m not pregnant right??
