I am on this medication because I have PCOS. My doctore wants me to take it to start my period to do testing. I havent been regular for over two years. My husband and I want to have children. My question is has anyone had blood in their stool while taking this medication?

51 yr old, 4-5 periods in last year, doc prescribed to give more periods. Took from 1st to 10th of this month - two weeks later still no period. Feel that it altered my moods somewhat. Reluctant to continue due to other known side effects.

I have PCOS and didn't have my period for about 8 months. I was used to it because when I was 18 I missed my periods by months. My doctor first said it was normal then I went to the Gyno.
