i am currently using heroin for about 2 years, and ive had it up to my ears in frustration and shame.
I am planning on going to the clinic this week to get on buprenorphine, but i'm scared and dont know what i'm so afraid of.??
To the ladies.... I know its common for female opiate users to stop getting their period while on the drug.
This is happening to me. I haven't gotton my period in 7 months and I'm worried that its causing some harm to my body.
Has anyone else experienced this? And also, do you know if your period comes back to normal after you quit using?
Thanks a lot. I want to stop this lifestyle, i feel so alone.
I am not sure about everything, but I Have a bulemic daughter that went without her period for many months...I do know that this is not good...especially for your bones.....which leads to a whole another set of circumstances for the body.....you are missing major nutrients for your body.... you should deffinately check with your doc about not having a period for a long lenght of time.....Trust me, you are in the right place for undrstanding and all the questions you have...they people here area the best.......................good luck to you and know that you have many friends here thay will support you....I wish you all the best............sincerelh, Bug1964......It will all be o.k.
The same exact thing happened to me. I was doing oxy's, methadone and zanex. I didn't have a period for about the last year of my drug use. I had a laperoscopy (didn't realize it was all the drugs) and nothing was wrong. Within a couple of days after that, I went to rehab, got my period after 2 weeks there, and got pregnant the day before I came home, lol! My husband was in there 2 (rehab). As usual, the drugs were the problem!
