All that I have experienced using this drug is severe dizziness ie: room spinning during any and all activity. Also mild depression. I am a 53 year old who went a year without a period then started bleeding and clotting for weeks on end. GYN thought this treatment would help. I am unable to have hystrectomy due to Plavix medication. I have just stopped this med and am consulting with doctor.

Not 100% sure but starting this medication was the only thing that changed prior to my stroke. I have no family history, normal cholesterol, BP, etc. I started taking this in late November of 2008 and had my stroke on December 6, 2009. Teams of doctors have tried to determine a cause - I am 42 years old.

My doctor has me taking 5mg twice a day to prepare for an endo ablation. This drug has caused depression, anxiety, weight gain, acne, bloating, headaches. I have taken myself off of it and will consult my Dr.

My gynecologist had me take for eight days. On the second day it made a BIG difference. I was able to back to work instead of lying on my back with my legs elevated.

I had heavy peoriods for about a year. I went to the dr and he gave me aygentin. I take 2.5 mg the first 12 days of the month and on the 13th day my period started and was normal. I have been on it for 25 years and would not be without it.

This drug has made it possible to avoid having a hysterectomy for a few more months by stopping my abnormal bleeding. However, my fibroids compound the problems and the Aygestin does not slow or shrink their growth.
