Women's Health / Fertility Overview

Oestrogens or estrogens (see spelling differences) are a group of compounds named for their importance in both menstrual and estrous reproductive cycles. They are the primary female sex hormones. Natural estrogens are steroid hormones, while some synthetic ones are non-steroidal[citation needed]. The name comes from the Greek οστρος (oistros), literally meaning "verve or inspiration" but figuratively sexual passion or desire,[1] and the suffix -gen, meaning "prod...

Fluconazole side effects
48 Replies RSS
I would like to know any and all side effects to this particular medication. I have been experiencing stomach ache, headache, low back ache, palpitations, taste, nausea. Are these normal side effects? and if not, should I stop taking them. Of course, you can't reach a doctor over the weekend. I have taken 9 doses in 10 days. I forgot to take my normal dose on Friday night and felt great the next day but took one last night when I realized that I had missed a dose, and woke up in the middle of the night feeling sick again. This has been going going on for the last 3 or 4 doses. The reaction usually occurs 4-6 hours after taking the pill. ## same happens here ## You poor thing, I only had to take 2 doses of it. I can't imagine taking it for that long. The pharmacist had told me it...

premarin, and side effects in men, what are they?
1 Reply RSS
I understand some males take conjugated estrogens for different indications. What if any side effects do men have when taking estrogen. My doctor gave me a female hormone to reduce breast enlargement when also using ANDROGEL(III) ## Hello, Kim! How are you? Mostly similar to what women experience, according to the FDA, you may experience headaches and irritability. However, on the other side, unlike women, it may change your hair growth, so you lose some facial or body hair, if you have any. Though, there's a good chance that the Androgen will prevent this. It's side effects are very similar, you may experience headaches, irritability and anxiety. Is there anything else I can help with?

Yeast Infection from Antibiotics
6 Replies RSS
I have taken one 150mg Fluconazole tablet to treat a yeast infection as a result of taking antibiotics. On the last night of taking my antibiotic I was in so much discomfort that I decided to take a Fluconazole to treat the thrush on the same night. I took my last antibiotic around (7pm and the Fluconazole much later at night before going to bed.) The symptoms have improved slightly within the last three days but I am still experiencing a very watery large amount of white discharge and red/soreness in that area. The Fluconazole I was prescribed had the instructions written by the pharmicist saying "Take one immediately and one in a week if required." It's been 3 days since I have taken it and was wondering whether it would be too early to try and take another as I am finding...

I HATE this new patch already. Did not adhere to my skin as easily as ortho and came off about 4 hours after applying. I've been on ortho evra for 5 months loved it and never once had a problem but I already can't stand xulane and so I don't know what I'm going to do ! :( My insurance switched me to xulane because it's the generic brand to ortho evra. This sucks I hate life. Ps. I'm 18 ## I'm 22 and I was on ortho evra for a YEAR and they changed me to this Xulane and good god I hate it. After a week of the switch I was in the emergency room passing clots and feeling like I was in labor, they thought I had PID and put me on antibiotics which kicked my ass even worse, but the bleeding stopped, and yesterday I was cleared to stop taking them because all my labs...
