    Spironolactone and periods - please help!!


    I'm extremely stressed, because even though I have PCOS, I've always had very regular periods. My period was due on the 22nd, but I started to take 100mg/day of Spironolactone on the's the 30th and my period still hasn't started! This is very unusual for me and I'm beginning to worry about pregnancy..obviously I will get tested soon, but I just keep hoping that my period will come anytime now, and everything will be ok! I've just noticed that I have some 'spotting' (and this is very light and watery), which I've never had before...Is it likely that the spironolactone has affected my menstrual cycle already?? I started taking it 2 days before my period was due. Any ideas??? I'm also even more stressed because I have quite severe and persistant lower abdominal pain and pelvic pain..I'm jumping to conclusions about ectopic pregnancies already!! I will get tested...but for now, is spironolactone likely to affect my periods so quickly??

    Another thing is that I've had pain in the left lower abdomen (may be my ovary?) for a long time now, but never this this common in PCOS/what could it be?? I had the same issue a couple of years ago, had a normal abdominal ultrasound done (not vaginal) and it simply revealed multifollicular ovaries...although this was 2 years ago!

    I'm also very nauseous all the hoping this is also from the spiro!!

    Please help!!!!
