I came off yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 3 weeks ago after been on the contraceptive pill for 16 years. I've yet to have a bleed. Is this normal? Also I'm very lethargic. ..
If you didn't have a withdrawal bleed when you stopped the yasmin, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) I would do a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.
If you did have the withdrawal bleed, then we wouldn't expect another period for 5-6 weeks, since women stopping the pill typically have their next period arrive 1-2 weeks late. ...Read more
Persistent fibromyalgia for past 4 yrs, fatigue & lower backache triggered by mental/physical stress, tried allopathy for 3.5 yrs, now trying ayurveda?

Daughter 16 has headache and body aches the last 16 hrs. Slight cough, feverish and lethargic. Just flu? Is it more than a she is taking hormone pills to prevent severe cramps from periods
Hello.: Hello. Her symptoms are suggestive of the flu or another viral infection. I cannot diagnose her. It could be helpful to take her temperature. Usually a temperature of 100.4 is considered clinically significant. If she has a temperature of over 104 f with headache and lethargy that would be a reason to get her seen. If she has headache with neck stiffness and confusion, that would be a reason for immediate care. If she develops difficulty breathing then she should be evaluated. Recommend rest, at least 8 - 8 ounce glasses of non-carbonated/ non- caffienated fluid per day, warm herbal teas and tylenol (acetaminophen) for discomfort. Chicken noodle soup and love go a long way too. Take care. ...Read more
