Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
GOOD MORNING DR.
why are you taking the Xenical
for weight loss
TO LOOSE SOME POUNDS
and how long have you been taking the xenical
and have you lost any weight yet and how much?
JUST 2 POUNDS.
Well you are ON the way that is good
Well the spotting is NOT due to the Xenical
WHY AM I SPOTTING?
IT NEVER HAPPENED TO ME
but it has to do with the fact your body is NOW starting to lose some weight and changing your metabolism
so it is normal to have bleeding /spotting as you are losing weight
So this is a GOOD thing so far for you, and just make sure you do NOT miss taking your loestrin
Now, also given you are 42, I would check too to see if the spotting is due to a thyroid condition or to something such as a polyp
So, you should get a TSH thyroid blood test
and also get a pelvic exam to check for a polyp or some other reason to possibly bleed / spot
I hope this helps
If you have more questions, please ask
