Hi. I started taking primolut nor 3 days before my expected date to delay my period. But u have started spotting. Will the spotting stop if I continue taking one tablet daily? Or now is it too late to stop the period? ## Hello, Suki! How are you? Yes, 3 days before your period likely wasn't long enough to delay it. Have you consulted your doctor? If you would like to have better control over when your period occurs in the future, you should talk to your doctor about taking an oral contraceptive. ## Hi, I had DUB and took primolut to stop. When the bleeding stopped after two days whenever i urinate i am passing blot clots which is similar to premenstrual symptom. It's almost 8 days now. should i be worried? or it's because of the tablet? ## Hi. I have a polycystic ovary and i...

im not getting my periods after i have stopped taking ovral l. I took this pill for 6 months for irregular periods. at that time my periods were exceeding. now it has been 4 months after i stopped taking the pill (and im not pregnent. i have tested several times). still im not getting my periods. can any body tell me wats the cause? do i have to go for any investigation? ## It would be very difficult for anyone to diagnose the cause just from a post on the Internet. There are many things that can cause a woman to skip her menstrual cycle, being underweight, excessive exercise or a hormonal problem, of some type. Your body may be having a problem rebalancing your hormones, after stopping the tablets. Yes, it would be advisable to see a doctor, to get to the root of the problem. Does anyo...

what pills to take to avoid bad smell
1 Reply RSS
During my urination,I notice that my urine is pale in colour and its smells bad,sometimes i feel like vomiting when i smell it. I just want to know,what cause this,and what antiobiotics can be taken to avoid dis? ## You need to go see a doctor. I am a female and immediately know when I have a kidney infection because my urine has the nastiest smell and it's also extremely foggy. If this is the case for you go see a doctor now, I can only take cipro for my kidney infections because of my allergy to sulfa drugs. Go to an urgent care if you have to, a kidney infection is no joke

baby swallowed misoprostol

My 16 month old swallowed this tablet. What do I do ## Hi Seda, Sorry to hear about what happened. How has your baby been doing since they ingested the tablet? Any strange side effects or unusual changes in behavior to take note of? In any case, I would just encourage you to contact your prescribing doctor and/or call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222 first and foremost, in order to accumulate additional opinions on the matter. I'd like to think that your 16 month old would be fine in the long run after its effects wear off, but due to the nature of this drug's indications it sounds like it would also be a good idea to assess potential risk factors by researching the drug's side effect profile to know what to watch for. Does anyone else have thoughts on this?
