My girlfriend started taking diet pills a week ago and she experienced light period 1 day. Ultrasound didn't detect abnormalities. Shall we be worried?

Diet Pills: "Diet pills" come in many types and dosages. I would need to know more about the medication. That said, some diet pills have hormones in them.

Lastly, if her weight problem is severe, she should try to get help from a nutritionist. ...Read more
