I've recently been diagnosed with edema also. I'm a 40yr old man and I've tried everything you have too and have had no luck. One thing that has helped a lot I've noticed is a magnesium supplement. Try buying magnesium oxide or something similar. Take anywhere from 200-500mg's a day. You'll notice a difference. I'm still trying to find the cause of the edema. They tested my heart, liver, and kidneys and found nothing. Probably weight since I'm heavy. If you find anything else useful, I would love to hear it. Goodluck. ~Devin~

I have experienced both vaginal bleeding & a yeast infection while taking lopid. I am a 63 year old post menopausal female. Out of the blue I had a period. I freaked out. Went on line and found that a few patients had reported these side effects while taking Lopid. My dr had just put me on Lopid the week before the period began. Neither my family dr or GYN dr had ever heard of these 2 things being a side effect of Lopid. Needless to say I no longer take this drug.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a year and a half. Still trying. Should be ovulating now, but no positive digital OPK. Need to lose 30 pounds. Thinking that would help our chances of conceiving. Today is cycle day 21. I have always had irregular periods ranging from 33 days to 47 days.
