Late Menstruation After Taking Antifungal Drugs?
morning I want to ask, on September 4-10 I menstruated, and until now on October 23, I haven’t menstruated yet, when on the 29th I took the medicine for 150gr 1 capsule of flucan, so for the care of women, let alone fungus, whether my period is late because my tablet is fluffered ? because my period is always regular before … and obviously I am not pregnant after being tested twice … thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The drug you mentioned contains the active composition of fluconazole, which is an antifungal that is sensitive to the fungus Candida sp. This fungus can infect various parts of the body, including the vagina, oral cavity, throat, stomach, urinary tract, and so on. Consumption of this drug should not have an effect on the menstrual cycle. However, you also need to know, that this drug is not included in the class of over-the-counter drugs, so the consumption MUST be done under a doctor's prescription for clear medical indications. It is not appropriate if you take this medicine as part of feminine care or prevention of fungal infections as you described above.
Late menstruation, if not due to pregnancy, can also be caused by other conditions, including:
Impaired hormonal balance, for example due to side effects of contraception, physical or psychological stress, unhealthy eating patterns
Disorders of the reproductive organs, for example due to ovarian cysts
Thyroid gland disorders, for example hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism
Weight gain that increases or decreases dramatically, and so on
You should first take the following steps to get your menstruation to run more smoothly:
Sleep more regularly 6 to 7 hours a day
Sports are more active
Stay away from stress, anxiety, or excessive emotions
Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grains
Do not consume instant food or drinks and excessive preservatives
Don't smoke or consume alcohol
If in 1 to 3 months your menstruation still does not come, you can do a re-testpack to detect the possibility of pregnancy. In some conditions, pregnant women can also find negative testpack results due to checking time that is too early. Or, to ascertain the cause of your late menstruation, you can also see yourself directly to an obstetrician so that appropriate treatment is given.
Hope this helps ...
