    Fluoxetine and spotting

    Hi all, I am in to week four of taking fluoxetine and my question is does it effect menstrual cycle, on my cycle day 22 I started to have some spotting I just thought my period came early but after a couple of hours it stopped and I have not bled since,this is very unlike me so I thought can the tablets cause this? Trying not to panic as half of the reason Iím ok these tablets is because of health anxiety.

    All the SSRIs may either lengthen, or shorten the cycle by several days, especially initially.
