hey everyone i just have a quick question....i just got my cystoscopy done on nov 5th and was diagnosed with IC. I started the elimiron that day and now i am a week late with my period. I was just wondering if that happened to anyone else when they got their procedure done and starting taking the elimiron. Also, I have been taking the pill since I was 13 and I'm 18 now and I haven't missed or been late since I was about 14. Thanks for reading! *I hope this is normal!!!*

it didn't do that to me but if you have sex then you should take an preg. test.
I do hope everything turns out okay for you.
sending you hugs and prayers

Ditto what Rhonda said, especially if you took an antibiotic for the cystoscopy, you should take a pregnancy test. Antibiotics are notorious for interfering with birth control pills.

Stress can definately do that to you. I get serious period issues when I am very stressed.
Has your period started yet?
