No third withdrawal bleed on trigestrel

Hi. I started using trigestrel in January and for the past 2 months when I got to the placebo pills I would have withdrawal bleeding but it was lighter than my usual period (which I've always had quite a light period). I've just finished my third pack now but decided not to take the placebo pills as they contain no hormones and I thought they wouldn't affect anything. my problem now is that I've only just had very light brownish discharge and no real bleeding and would like to find out if I could possibly be pregnant. I take my pills at the same time every night and have never skipped. I've also experienced serious side effects such as dizziness,nausea and tender breasts and have assumed it was the pill because it started when I started the pill. I know a pregnancy t...

I have five herniated discs in my spine and I've been suffering from agonizing pain. Every time I try to take something for the pain, it flares up my IBS, causing me severe diarrhea and nausea.

Could I give my child Scopex 10mg (1 tablet) for cramps? She is 3 years old. ## You should definitely run this by their pediatrician, but likely not. The active ingredient in this medication is Hyoscine, also known as Scopolamine. I was reading a leaflet on Scopex and it states "Due to the risk of provoking hyperpyrexia it should not be given to patients, especially children where the ambient temperature is high." It also says "Use with caution in children, geriatric patients, patients with diarrhoea, fever, and in conditions characterised by tachycardia". Source ## Hello, Lee! How is your daughter? Please do not give her any medication without her doctor's approval. It is very, very easy to overdose a child to the point of fatal toxicity. Additionally, there are man...

Scopex against menstruation cramps?

Can I also use it for menstruation cramps? ## It is listed as containing Hyoscine, so it is not likely that it will help with menstrual cramps.

Are you on any other medications? ## My dr prescribed me Scopex for my period cramps, I have endometriosis as well, with the scopex he also prescribed exinef, I also have a stomch ulcer, which my gp is aware of, and the brochure inside the exinef says to not use it when you have a ulcer...
