jewel on Aug, 17, 2014:
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 (4 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.

i just had botox yesterday. i noticed in this study that one out of 12,000 had vaginal bleeding between periods after botox. that person was bipolar and on the drug Lamictal.
I am bipolar as well AND take Lamictal. When I got home from my botox treatment, I began to have vaginal bleeding in ab few hours of my visit. It's not heavy, but scares me all the same. I am still bleeding after 24 hours.
I don't want to go to the dr. because I didn't tell my husband I had the Botox because he will be angry with me.
If the other person that experienced this after botox reads this, please respond and let me know what you did about it and if and when your bleeding stopped.
