A Remicade Question for the Ladies

Hi everyone,

So I just had my third dose of Remicade last week. Everything went well and I feel great so far. I got my period this week, which is the first time since I started the Remicade (I'm on a 90-day cycle, so I only get it once every three months). Normally, I have horrible cramping and bloating and generally feel pretty awful when I have my period, since I've also been diagnosed with endometriosis. This is the first time in my ENTIRE LIFE that I haven't had ANY pain associated with my period! Aside from being tired, which is probably just because I'm anemic, I feel like a completely normal person.

So my question is....has anyone else experienced this with Remicade? If this is a side effect of the drug, it sure is a great one!


My Butt Hurts

I've been on Remicade for 8 months and haven't noticed a change in cramps. I have been much moodier with my period lately, but I don't know if I can attribute it to anything.

But since meds affect everyone differently, I guess it's possible. Update us in three months!
