Is this possible?

I am currently taking Zoloft, and I took it for a while and it delayed my period a little while [I can't remember if I had it or not that time, I think I did] and then I took the generic version of it for a few months and was normal and now a week or so ago I started taking Zoloft again and my period is a week or so late. Has this happened to anyone else, or should I be more concerned?

[I'm not sexually active.]

Re: Is this possible?

I wouldn't worry about it. Sometimes, changes in medication can affect your menstrual cycle by delaying ovulation. Ovulation can be delayed by a few days, a week, a few weeks, even months in some cases. When ovulation is delayed, your period is going to be late. Medication, stress, diet, exercise, illness can all delay ovulation.

There was one woman on a trying to conceive forum I belong to who had to be put on medication for hives and it made her cycles so wacked out that she didn't ovulate at all on that medication--hence, no periods or even chance of conceiving in her case.

Hopefully, your body will regulate to the Zoloft after a few menstrual cycles on it.
