I have 2 issues here. The first is that because of an upper respitory infection my family Dr. rx'd Keflex 500 mg 3 x day. Within 18 hours I started having dark spotting. Is this because of the antibiotics? Just had a pap and all was well. Second issue is 10 days ago my GYN changed my HRT from Progesterone 100 mg daily + Vivelle DOT 0.05 Patch TO the Combipatch 50/250. This was because I complained about being moody. No other problems. Could this have anything to do with the spotting? I just noticed today it has one heck of a foul smell. Looks like it's going away. HELP! Scared because my GYN constantly preaches "No bleeding while on HRT, ever". Also, why am I so high on HRT meds just for moody feelings? Seems like everything I read says stay on as low of a dose as possible. Thanks for any help. Love this forum!View Thread
