    This is my first time with this medication and I'm waiting for my ten days to be up to see if my period has come. Overall I've never gotten side-effects from a medication like the one's I'm getting now. They are really uncomfortable. Dizziness and a bit of the shakes, I am not enjoying it.

    My daughter has taken this med a month ago and still no period. We are scared for her she is only 20 and Dr cant seem to come up with an answer. Now she is having awful discharge that is clear and stretchy. Has anyone else experienced this. She say's no itch or smell. We are taking her to another Dr but are now concerned with this discharge issue.
