Hypertension During Or Around Menstrual Cycle

Sep 26, 2014

I have had high blood pressure since 2009. My medication will control it until around my menstrual cycle. I will have horrible headaches that turn into migraines and my blood pressure will jump to 180/110 and stay there for a few days. My doctor stated that it is stress related, but my question is: if it is stress related, why do I just have these horrific headaches and my blood pressure skyrocket just around my menstrual? I can't find the answer. I have researched it and have ask my physician, but no new light has been shed. Does anyone have any information?

Hyperthyroidism :: Shortened Menstrual Cycle With Prolonged Menstrual Bleeding

I need to adjust my thyroid supplement therapy. I won't be able to see any of my doctors (GP, gynecologist, endocrinologist) for at least a month. Waiting list is that long.

I have PCOS and Hashimoto's (treated with T4 and T3). My periods have been regular (between 28 and 35 days) since I was 12. However, this month I had my period barely three weeks after the last one. It usually lasts for about 5 days, however today's my 7th day and it doesn't look as if it's going to stop. I've seen my gynecologist twice this august, and all the results were fine.

It's certainly due to overmedication. My endo increased the dosage of my medication 4 months ago. Since then, I tested my TSH and got bad result - 0,1. 

She has decreased my dose since, but the result remains the same - 0,1. I'm aware that I need professional help, but I must do something. I can't continue my therapy like this. Any advice on how to decrease the dosage from 50 mg levothyroxine (T3) and 50 mg euthyral (T4 and T3) would save me.

Nortriptyline Will Affect My Menstrual Cycle?

I've been on 100 mg Nortriptyline for months now for my chronic migraines and one night I felt like I was suffocating so I stopped taking them cold turkey. It's been about a week since I stopped them. Is there any chance it will affect my menstrual cycle? While taking them, it was never at the same time, it was always early or late so I'm not sure what to do.

Menstrual Cycle :: On My Periods For 12 Days

I've been on my period for 12 days. I've been on birth control for 4 months now and the previous 2 months my period has come a week early, so I've just keep taking the pills as usual (so the first week of my period I was taking the birth control and the second week were placebo pills). This month it was a week and a half early and I'm still having heavy bleeding and clotting. What could be going on and what can I do?

Menstrual Cycle :: Its Been A Year And A Half Since I Have Had A Period?

I was quite late to start my periods- 16 and they lasted for roughly a year or so very irregular.  They went away to costa rica and by the time i returned about 3 months later and i had turned 17 my periods had stopped. I haven't had my periods since, i have however been to the doctors several times, they have taken my blood and seem to have found no symptoms- they just told me they will return soon. One said it was because i was too thin, i am quite slim but no more than some of my friends and i eat a lot. It took quite a bit of effort but recently gained a little weight- i travel quite a bit (asia, south and central America, af) and was wondering if it was possible i have some kind of parasite. I'm 19 almost 20- there must be something up.

Menstrual Cycle :: 22 Year Old - I Have Period Pains When I'm Not Due

I recently went to my doctor because pretty much since I started my period at 14, I've experience really bad cramps. The issue however is not that, my problem is that throughout the month regardless if I am due or not I get period cramps, or what I can only explain as "period cramps" as that is the closest thing it feels like, its defiantly within that region. I was tested for any STD's or ovarian cancer which all came back clear and then sent to hospital for an ultra sound to see if I had ovarian cysts or anything like that, again it all came back clear. I've had regular smear tests as well and I've never had any irregularities. So now I'm really confused and although I guess relieved that its none of the above, I'm now left pretty anxious and confused as I still have no idea what is happening. I've a pretty high pain threshold but these are really uncomfortable and sore and I cant just ignore the issue. I don't get discharge, blood or anything, just a sudden shooting pain in that area and it lasts a couple of seconds, and then goes. It can happen at anytime of the month and I'm really scared at what it is. Anyone have any ideas or experienced the same thing? I just want to put a name to its scary face that i have created!

Cutaneous Lupus Can Affect Menstrual Cycle?

I was recently diagnosed with cutaneous lupus. I was on prednisone and now I am on Plaquenil 400mg a day. I called my pharmacist and asked him if the Plaquenil can stop my menstrual cycle and he looked it up and told me no. So, now I am wondering if the lupus is the cause. I am 5 weeks late I haven't had my period yet and my husband had a vasectomy so I know I can not be pregnant. So my question is can cutaneous lupus cause me not to have a period?

Menstrual Cycle :: Heavier Period Than Normal?

Last month, I had a very light period that only lasted two days. After that, I had bad cramps in my hips and pelvic area. They lasted for about two weeks or so. Yesterday, I finally got my period. But when I woke up today, I had leaked, and bled through my underwear and pants. This isn't really normal for me, I've never had a leak before. I'm guessing that my period is a lot heavier than it usually is. 

I'm 14, and I know that my period isn't supposed to regulate for about 2 or 3 years, but is this something I should be concerned about? I could just be working myself up over nothing, but anything that isn't normal terrifies me.

Menstrual Cycle :: In Agony Every Month Due To Copper Coil

I got my copper coil fitted in January. Wasn't pleasant did get a bit ill but after I was fine and of course had heavy long periods and sore cramps for a few months. The bleed has eased a bit but the pain seems to be getting more intense. I have never had any children or been pregnant the only way I can describe it is like well labour pains. Only lasts a few seconds at a time and I find myself screaming in pain and panting as its unbelievably painful I think the girls in work think I'm at it as they see the pain I can get in. Comes and goes in waves this has been happening for a few months now it feels like a period cramp but 100 times worse and something stabbing me with a 1000 knifes in my uterus DX bit extreme I know haha. I was warned cramps can get worse but never knew they would be THIS bad and I thought they would calm down after a few months but only got worse. The only good thing is I haven't got pregnant and I don't think my other half wants to go back to using protection after this long having the coil.
