Ok so has anyone been put on humira and then stoped it??
 
I have been on humira for 8 months, I recently got the CMV virus which attacks weak immune systems only and is rare and yea i got it.. So they told me to hold my humira shot for about a month or two.. since my last shot was due that i didnt take i have had some seriously heavy break through periods.  I had my cycle 2 weeks ago and am not due to start till next thursday and starting this friday that passed in 2 hours i went from nothing to OMG bleeding and then it stoped sat. sunday same thing.. and when i went potty it was like peeing blood ( i know i wasnt) and then again yesterday and today.. Its weird though because it bleeds extremely heavy for 4 hours and then its all done.. for a day or so.. what is going on? Everyone keeps telling me its stress and i should just wait a month or so but i am a very regular person, i can pinpoint my cycle almost to the minute.. and i am on birth control as well..
 
any advise is great?~!

There are moments in your life that makes you and sets the course of who you're going to be. Sometimes there little, subtle moments. Sometimes, they're big moments you never saw coming. No one ask for their life to change, but it does. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.

I have had to stop my Humira for about 6 - 7 weeks due to an operation and infection, but then started it again without any problems. I doubt your female issues are related to the Humira at all. It sounds like if you have always been regular and now are experiencing this that you need to call your OB/GYN and get checked out.

Get checked out by the OB/GYN you certainly don't need anything else going on down there! I take Humira as well and haven't had a problem with it. However, my Imuran keeps my cycle screwed up along with perimenepause. The last time I had bleeding problems they found what the GYN called a crohn's related cyst in my uterus. When I asked her after my DNC what she removed, her words were..."I don't know what the &*#@ it was"! Thank God it was benign.

wow.. I really hope its not like that.. I am going on day 7 of a period that is really heavy all at once and then over rest of the day.. Ugh. I like my 3 day periods so much better.. even with the cramping. Its still not supposed to start till next thurs and i have to go 3 weeks on a cycle, oh my poor husband :).
