Check with your doctor to make sure that there isn't something else that could be contributing to the nasal bleeding. Most people don't bleed on that low of a dose so have it checked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can antibiotics (levaquin) cause hair loss weeks after you stop taking them? If so, will it subside at some point?
It's a bit of a leap: If you are not limiting the action to when the drug is having effects then you cannot say it will ever subside. The more reasonable approach is if the effect isn't at the time of administration (cancer chemo within days of giving it for example), it isn't connected. ...Read more

Been prescribed .5mg of estrogen to help uncontrollable brown vaginal bleeding from BC , how long after taking this should I see it possibly suffice?
Hard to say: Estrogen can definitely help irregular bleeding, especially if you are on low dose BCPs. 0.5 mg is a small amount, so it may take some time (days to weeks) to see a difference. If after 2 pill packs you are still having this problem, then ask your GYN if there may be something else wrong? Or you can increase to 1.0 mg of estradiol per day, or consider switching birth control pill brands. ...Read more
