I am a 25 yr old female that has not had a period in 5+ months. Was given this medication for 10 days. Took the medication at night, and did not experience any side effects, but it's been 7 days after taking all of the medication and have yet to begin my period. Go back to the OBGYN in 2.5 weeks. Hope it comes soon, or back to the drawing board.

I was put on 10mg once daily for 5 days and I still never got a period. waiting to go back to the Dr. to see what is going on. But, I am 28 year old female who has not had a period in 5+ months after stoping the birth control pill. My Dr gave me this to bring my period back. so far it hasn't worked. I was SUPER moody, depressed, ready to cry at any given moment and my breasts are soooo tender!

I take this medicine for 10 day program to start my period, but by the 7th or 8th day I get swollen ankles, feet & hands, put on weight, cravings, and get a very very bad migraine... I am not sure if I am goin to continue to use this medicine. I would rather have missed periods then to have these side effects.
