When Meds Affect the Menstrual Cycle

"I’ve been taking a stimulant for a few months, and my periods are noticeably shorter. Can stimulant medication affect the menstrual cycle?"

I know of no evidence to suggest that stimulants affect the menstrual cycle. If you believe that your problems began when you started the stimulant, I encourage you to discuss your concerns with your doctor.
