Can Alcohol Affect Your Period
Is there a test that can be given to determine if one has consumed alcohol within the last 24 hour period?
Breathalyzer: Breathalyzer or blood testing would accomplish this. The liver metabolizes alcohol at a set rate so the size of a person can make a difference in how long it is detectable. This would also vary depending on how much alcohol was consumed in that 24hr period. If a small enough amount is consumed it might not be detectible even a few hours later. ...Read more
Given that if you drink more alcohol you will feel more drunk, but will you also be drunk for a longer period of time?
Yes: But this is very dependent on gender and genetics and so much more! As well a persons ability to metabolize alcohol and any other co-existing health problems. In kidney or liver disease or combo of both, add no alcohol dehydrogenase (genetic abnormality) and a person could remain 'drunk' until dead. ...Read more
BCP and ETOH: The effectiveness of birth control pills is not impacted by alcohol but the hormones in the pills can reduce the liver's ability to metabolize ethanol and this leads to higher blood alcohol levels and intensifies the effects of drinking. You should be careful when drinking and probably drink less than when you are off the pills. ...Read more
I have drank alcohol for the first time 2 weeks ago and the period is not yet came. Any suggestions? Or prescriptions?
Sounds normal.: Alcohol use and your cycle are not likely related in any way. It is very common to have a missed cycle or two at your age. Pregnancy is a common cause but so is stress, diet, activity, etc. Suggestion: if you are concerned about pregnancy check a pregnancy test. If you are not, then relax. No medication necessary. ...Read more
It's almost like a subconscience urge, but I tend to crave alcohol before my period and have noticed that I have minimal tolerance for it.
Catching on - Good: Very good, on right track. Cravings are inherently far more (if not totally) mental, subconscious & related to associations formed from previous experiences. At the same time, that does not mean associations are always helpful or healthy, as you make reference to. Study the first portion of video: "science for smart people": human intelligence & pattern recognition. Confront memories, hx, reasons. ...Read more

Alcohol and gut: Acute alcohol administration results in changes in gonadal hormones that differed by sex. Vassal et al 2012 showed that alcohol-induced suppression of testosterone occurred predominantly in men and increases in Estradiol occurred predominantly in women. It is known circulating levels of testosterone and Estradiol deeply affect adipocyte proliferation, differentiation, and fat mass distribution. ...Read more
How much alcohol could a person consume over a period of time that they would have seizures from cold turkey?
Hard to tell...: One would have to consume copious amounts of alcohol to achieve this; or one may actually have epilepsy and the alcohol is simply lowering the seizure threshhold; please get with your physician and explore this; you may even need to see a neurologist to undergo some diagnostic testing figure out what is going on. ...Read more
I've bleed twice this week each after ive drank alcohol is it nornal to be bleeding? Should I seek medical attention? (10 days early on my period)
See a doctor: Any abnormal vaginal bleeding should be professionally evaluated. There are many possible causes, but alcohol isn't one of them, so the timing probably is a coincidence. I wonder if you also had sex around those times? Bleeding triggered by sex is often due to cervicitis, which in turn is often caused by STDs like gonorrhea or chlamydia. In any case, see a doctor soon and check it out. Good luck! ...Read more
