Wellbutrin / Menstrual Cycle
I started taking Wellbutrin XL 300mg about a year ago. I'm quiet diligent in tracking my menstrual cycle and noticed after taking it for a few weeks that my period never came. I got the bloated feeling, cramps, swallon breasts but no period. Two weeks late, my period finally arrived. Since then I've had no problems at all though. My period is right on track every month. Guess it was just my body/hormone getting used to the medication.

Hearing this is bitter sweet because now I know this is a shared experience. I however am the husband who was taking chantix. I didn't notice any of the irrability or anger until I my wife and I attempted to have intercourse. I had no stimulation where I usually had to much. This drug controls my thoughts and actions and thankfully got off of it and am starting to become my old self again. Although libido is still not as strong and moods are still as you mentioned. How long until you
