Sertraline and the pill!

Hi guys...feeling quite terrified at the moment. I'm on sertraline and had my dose increased to 200mg about 5/6 weeks ago. I'm on the pill and don't usually get a period...just a few days of brown discharge (sorry...tmi!) We'll for the past few weeks,things have felt different....I'm getting period pains, discharge for over a week, but not constant. My back hurts and I feel bloated and constipated. I've convinced my self that I have ovarian cancer :-( I feel so sad and scared. I will go to the docs tomorrow and start the ball rolling but thought I'd ask on the wild off chance that someone else has had menstrual issues whilst on sertraline.

Thanks for listening to my ramblings xx

It could be a coincidence but DauntlessInitiate posted on Action on Depression a couple of days ago about a similar issue if you want to take a look but you need to talk to your doctor really. gemmax
