Hi There,

I have been prescribed 20mg of Fluoxetine for depression and since taking it have missed my period. I've been on it for 3 weeks.

I am definitely not pregnant and my periods have always been as regular a clockwork, so I can only put it down to the Fluoxetine.

Has anybody else experienced this and do your periods eventually return?

Thanks.

Fluoxetine made me nauseous.
It could be stress, I didn't have periods for months while on antidepressants and going through a very stressful time in my life.
After I did the obligatory pregnancy test, I decided that it was a bonus because I had no monthly bleed.
