    Sertraline, periods irregular. After sex discharge.

    I started taking sertraline again in December and since in what used to be regular period have now been 45 days apart and 35 days apart and during what I believe is my ovulation after sex when his semen is leaking from me it is brown tinged.
    does anybody else have have period issues since taking this?
    FYI I was upped to 100mg 2 weeks ago.
    I'm 42.

    Serotonergic antidepressants can both interfere with ovulation in the beginning and for a while after dose increases. They are also mild anticoagulants which can affect menstrual flow. Sertraline seems to be more likely to cause these issues than the other SSRIs. It usually settles down after a while. See your doctor if it doesn't.

    Hi having a very similar problem at the moment. Started sertraline and few months ago. My period would usually be a few days out but not as much as this. Waiting for a call back from gp trying very hard to not let the health anxiety gremlins get me with this one. Will update after I've spoken to my gp
