Does Alcohol Delay Your Period
I was taking northistorone tablets for a week and have now bieng of them for 4 days and my period has still not come. .. Can alcohol delay a period?
Wait a few more days: I presume you mean norethisterone/norethindrone. Once you finish the seven to ten days of this med you should wait up to a week for the period to come. If it does not you need to see your gyn for continued evaluation and possible bloodwork. There is no evidence that short-term alcohol use would affect this. ...Read more
Not generally: While some drugs can affect hormonal cycles, alcohol consumption is generally not one of these. That being said, chronic alcohol abuse can cause vitamin deficiencies and be associated with other unhealthy behaviors that ultimately can result in changes to hormonal balance. ...Read more
Anatomy: No. Not in any way. Your period happens when the ovary readied egg is not impregnated. The lining of the uterus then sloughs off and the cycle is readied all over again. Your vagina has nothing to do with your menstrual cycle other than as a conduit to semen to impregnate the egg. ...Read more
Hi I will go for a vacation and I will take Primolut N to delay my period (two pills a day) can I drink alcohol while I there?
Yes, assuming. . .: If you can drink alcohol where you are now while on Primolut N (http://www. Drugs. Com/uk/primolut-n-spc-15917.html), there's no reason why you can't drink alcohol while on vacation somewhere else. Just be sure to use condoms to minimize risk for sexually transmitted diseases/infections. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hormonal?: I can imagine it's hormonal in some way. Maybe alcohol helps your cramps. Sometimes it seems that our bodies crave what it needs. For example, my wife who never eats red meat, craved red meat while she was pregnant-i guess to help boost her iron levels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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
