    Ok, So I've been on Elmiron for 3 weeks now and my main complaint is that i am battling hot flashes..I know it's the med cuz nothing else has changed. I am only 31 so I HOPE it's not early menopause. My period is also LATE! I am like clockwork normally.

    So, here is my question, what effect does Elmiron have on Estrogen/Progesterone? Does anyone have any idea? I would really appreciate any feedback from you guys. (you're all my panel of experts )

    I'm not seeing too much of a difference with Elmiron. But it'll be a while before I can see a Doctor. I might look into other treatments...as well as something to deal with the urgency and pain...

    I had a period the week before I started Elmiron. During the 5 weeks I was on the medication, I had 2 more! I also started having regular severe hot flashes (whereas I was only having occasional mild ones before). And I was one of the people that had hair shedding. Definite hormonal problems on this medication.

    I got off Elmiron and on to flax seed and eventually to soy when I could tolerate it. Now, all is right with the world again.

    I wonder if it could have been just stress-related, or a change to your system, starting a new medication?
    Glad to hear that it came and everything is ok

    Thanks.


    I did end up getting it, just late this month. No, there is no way I can be pregnant. I'm not sexually active...

    I've been on Elmiron for about three years now and not had it stop my period. I agree that you should get checked. It may only be stress or something. When I was a senior in high school, I had that happen. I had my first trip to the gyno and they did an ultrasound just to make sure I didn't have a cyst or anything. Pregnancy was completely not an option at that point.

    My period is actually heavier on Elmiron. Probably due to the mild blood thinning properties. I think that you should get a checkup to see why you may not be having your period. Sometimes it can stop during times of great stress, physical or mental...Or you could be pregnant?!

    Elmiron and your period?

    Yeah, not the most "user friendly" topic, but can this medication stop you from getting it? Since I've been on it, I haven't gotten it...
Working...
