    Microgestin 1.5/30 Please help!!!!
    An_249243 posted:
    I started taking microgestin 1.5/30 five days ago. I am facing a lot of side effects including hives, cramps, headaches, mild nausea, and mild shortness of breath. I called my doctor today and told him about my side effects. He said to stop taking it. My main concern was to delay my period this month and it is falling on the 12/16. Is there anyway to delay it? Can I start taking this medicine 3/4 days before the 16th and take it till the 17th so it delays my period for a few days?

    I suggest calling your Dr back and ask him the same questions you asked here. Why is it so important to delay your period by a few days??
