Aussyfem on Jun, 24, 2014:
Hi I'm a female in the 25-29 year old category. I took Cyclosporine a little over a year ago! After one week of taking this medication I began to have moderate menstrual bleeding that got heavier by the day. 3 weeks after the bleeding began I stopped taking the tablets. The bleeding resolved a short time later.
