Hi my question is, iv taken a canesten tablet and ended up with a very light bleeding, iv heard this is fairly normal, but i wasnt due for my period until a couple of days after i got this. Once this went away i never got a proper period and its been nearly 2 weeks. Could the tablet have made me just have a light period or could i have missed this cycle?
The ususal side effects reported by Canesten are burning,cramping,rash,itching,redness etc and it is rare to have vaginal bleeding.Since it is an antifungal preparation and not a hormonal so changes in bleeding pattern are not reported.
I hope you have confirmed that you are not pregnant.Consider doing a Urine HPT and visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
