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.
