Anyone notice a delay/absence in their period since being on saxenda?
I just started Saxenda this month & my menstrual cycle is 4 days late. I'm usually like clockwork so this is a first. I was wondering if there was a correlation between the two, I hadn't had time yet to research this.
I'm so glad I found this question. The doctors office said it was not a side effect but yes. My period has been off since I started. It's been late and last month it went over 5 days.
Hi, I was interested to know how this ended up for you?
I have recently started taking saxenda and my period came, it’s only light but has now lasted for 15 days and doesn’t look like it’s going to stop.
I have an appt with the gyno on Friday but I am wondering too if there is a correlation between hormones/periods and saxenda?
My cycle is like clockwork usually - every 28 days and lasts 6 days. Since I’ve been on Saxenda, my cycle has shortened and now my period is disappearing. This last period came on a 26 day cycle and lasted 2 days. I went to the gynecologist and I’m fine, but still, annoyed that this is messing with my cycle. Also, am not on the pill in case that’s relevant to your question.
I started taking Saxenda two weeks ago. I've lost 6 lbs so far. I feel I can handle the few side effects but I haven't stopped my cycle. I've been on it for 2 weeks.
Has this happened to anyone else?
Yes. My cycle is normally around 24-26 days and goes for about 7 days. Since I started Saxenda in October, my cycle in November was 6 days late and lasted 4 days, and I have yet to start this month and it's been 45 days. It's a little annoying because I'll get PMS like I'm going to start and then don't. But I'm having good results and have lost 15 pounds since starting Saxenda, so I'm going to stay on it until I hit my goal weight.
For reference, I'm 44, hypothyroid and had no success with weightloss previous to this.
I started Saxenda on 12/24/2019 and have the Nexplanon birth control arm implant. I got nexplanon in back in June and my periods stopped. Now I've had a period for over a week and it's getting heavier
Been on Saxenda for 11 weeks with no weight loss. My period was late for 12 days. I decided to stop using Saxenda as it wasn't working for me and 3 days later I got my period!
Just started Saxenda and my period started the next day, much heavier than usual, cramping all day long. I’m on Junel fe and usually only spot a few days a month like clockwork. I feel great otherwise though - did anyone else experience this? Did it stop?
When I first started on Saxenda my period started to last longer than normal (two weeks) and then come again in another two weeks. Then it turned to three weeks on one week off. Now I have bleeding daily. I have an apt soon to see what the heck is up.
I started taking Saxenda and thought I had found a miracle, when in week three I lost 15 pounds and had zero hunger. Then the issues started by week four I was feeling super nauseous and my period decided two come two weeks early with very light spotting and not my regular cycle at all. Here I am two weeks later and still spotting and no real period. I’ve always been very regular until I started the shots. It gets better I started getting severe cramping, thinking it was my period finally about to come, but the pain was so severe I was rushed to the ER and was told I had a lot of inflammation to my gallbladder and pancreas. I was admitted and waited two days NPO for the inflammation to subside before they removed my gallbladder. My blood work was horrible with inflammation markers, two weeks later my blood work is normal and still spotting since. I would NOT recommend this shot to anyone.
Hello. I have been on Saxenda since FEB 2018. I have lost 50 lbs, along with treadmill 30 minutes a day, 4 times per week. My period has stopped all completely. I was off Saxenda for 2 weeks, MAR 2020, and my period came back immediately. I am now back on Saxenda, APR 2020.
I have been on Saxenda for 5 weeks. I am usually like clock work... 28 day cycle with 6-7 day period. My first period on Saxenda was 4 days early and mostly spotting for the first 4 days and then light for 6 more days. Now it’s time for the next period and nothing... no spotting... nothing!
Oddly my periods started again after 8 days of using Saxenda, when they had previously been absent for 6 months. I'm 52
I have been on Saxenda for the last month and a half . I have not had a period (told I was in menopause) for the last two years and now I have been spotting every day since starting saxenda . I was told it was not a side effect by the md that prescribed it but I’m not to sure .I will be seeing my ob/gyn next week .
