I am a 46 yr. old female who just completed my
first treatment of rituxin, have not had any chemo or any other
A significant change from the beginning was during the first
treatment - a strange reaction that included the spasming of my uterus similar
to the effect of labor contractions - besides other
strange reactions- I felt lots of pressure almost a bearing down feeling as in
childbirth. In everything I have read I have never seen anything associated
with what I felt. I also have gone into a full menstrual
period every week except after treatment 5, although 7 days
after again began heavy bleeding again.
I am interested in knowing if there is a connection with
this drug and the reproductive organs. The B cells are blood related and so
I was wondering if there has been any relational research
done on the symptoms I am experiencing.
