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.

Hi. I was on an antibiotic called Cefdinir. After about 4 days i had severe diarrhea. I called the doctor on the 6th day. He said I could stop taking them. . I did but the diarrhea continued for weeks. I took immodium and gas-x which would temporarily stop it, but i still had sever pain in my lower left abdomen. Someone suggested i take a probiotic which i started 2 days ago. So the diarrhea stopped but i still get the pain off and on. Should i be worried and also can i take more than one probiotic pill a day? the pill is1mg.

Hi! My name is Voula, I am 23 yyears old and I have PCOS. My doctor told me to start taking the pill because I had very infrequent menstruation cycle. That was 5 years ago. So after 5 years of non-stop taking the pill, I decided to stop it on my own. I wasn t feeling very well, i had gained weight and generally the idea of taking all these hormones made me nervous. I will visit a GP as soon as I can, but do you think I made a good decision? What should I be aware from now on? Thank you for your time!

Hi Doctor.. (Preferably Gynecologist) My first time to used Althea Pills was last June-August 2013 just to treat my irregular period and to treat my acne. Being irregular is in our genes my sisters we re also suffering from period irregularities. The reason I took these pill is because I didn t have my period for 3 months or more, and I guess this is the reason why I had pimple breakouts. And it did a good job on my menstruation while taking it for 3 months I have been regular, my acne lessen somehow, and also I gain 3kls weight and my breast become bigger a bit. But I got a constipation to the point that I got so blood on my stools because of the hemorrhoids or im having rectal bleeding. ---Is it also caused by taking this althea pills? Now I just noticed that after I stopped taking this pill, I didn t have this constipation (Im not sure if this is just a con-insidence). And also my menstrual irregularities came back after I stopped the pill. Now I just notice that from February 2014 until June 2014 I did nt have my period yet. I m quite afraid for not having my period for almost 5 months. ----Is it because of the althea pill that I took before? And one last question.. My period Just came this June 6, 2014 but its very minimal. At first I got 1 tiny black sticky something on my underwear, followed by a drops of red blood but only little. Is it considered my first day menstruation? I decided to take althea pills again this time because It was written on the box that I should take it on the first day of my period. Im also taking Zinc for acne supplement from last month up to now. ----How safe it is to take again? An I heard that taking birth control pills like this can cause cancer, how true is this? And also Is it safe to take althea pills while Im on this dieatary supplement? Please answer my questions Doctor. It will be a great help for me. Thank You very much! I ll wait for your response. Im just very worried about this.
