Im 39 yrs old. Diagnosed with MS in May of this year and started avonex shortly thereafter. I have had times when I have stopped taking it because I was depressed, felt terrible and wanted to see if it was meds or MS. But after a 3 week break I felt no better so I got back on avonex and have taken it every since. I am over 2 weeks late for my period..and have looked online about menstrual irregularities with avonex and only found something about studies with monkies. Have any other women here who take it have menstrual problems?
