Impact On Menstrual Cycle

Peej Says:

Hi, have been on Hydroxychloroquine for 8 weeks now. My menstrual cycle has become irregular, having 3 periods in the last six weeks. Has anyone had the same impact? What do I do?

Hello, Peej! How are you?

Virtually any medication you take can cause that and there's no way to predict it.

The FDA lists its other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, irritability, headache and diarrhea.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I am currently on Purbac. I had my menses for 3 weeks full. I made a decision not to stop as I am booked for a month only. But it is so unpleasant.

I have been on purbac for 2 months now and I have missed my period this month. Did a pregnancy test and it came out negative. What does this mean, I'm worried?

Emmah, Purbac is a combination antibiotic containing Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim. I checked the drug's Details Page and it did not mention anything relating to the menstrual cycle. It is contraindicated in pregnant women, so if you think you could be pregnant then you should consult with your doctor to get a check-up. I am not sure what you were prescribed this medication for, but perhaps that could also be a cause of your missed menstrual cycle?
