I'm 40. Has anyone experienced a change in their monthly cycle since being on Tecfidera?

Yes, I was wondering if it was only me. I started Tecfidera mid-September and have had regular periods since. Prior, I could go a year or two before having a period.

I just started Tecfidera about a month and a half ago. My period started this week, and usually I am in a lot of pain for the first 2 days. I have not had one bit of pain. That has never happened. Also, it has just been strange. Not a consistent flow. It seemed to stop early, and there was nothing for 18ish hours, and suddenly it came back full force and I had to run to the bathroom.

I started Tecfidera 2.5 weeks ago. I'm on birth control pills- but since starting tecfidera I bled for 12 days! Is this because of the Tecfidera? I don't see any other reason. I'm worried because I do not want to have any reproductive problems. My husband and I want to have our first child soon.

Tecfidera was found to cause testicular toxicity in preclinical testing. tecfidera-bg-12-dimethyl-fumarate-f52/topic22021.html I don't know what it does in females or in people. It's certainly something to discuss with your doctor.
