Common Questions and Answers about Medroxyprogesterone how long does it take to work


THE DOCtoR toLD ME <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> START ON THE FIRST OF MARCH AND <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> for 10 DAYS. MY NEXT SET OF MEDICATION IS <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> START APRIL 1 for 10 DAYS. I WAS WONDERING IF AND WHILE I AM taking THIS MEDICATION WILL I START MY PERIOD OR WILL I START A FEW DAYS after. I REALLY HOPE THESE PILLS WORK CAUSE I CANT STAND HAVING THESE long PERIODS. I'VE NEVER BEEN THROUGH THIS, SO CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME OUT. I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE it.
What is funny though is the doctor who told me I don't is the one who gave me a never ending supply of the medroxyprogesterone. I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> every month. Are your periods just kind of irregular? At this point I actually don't get one at all unless I take the provera "medroxyprogesterone". I have scheduled another apt because I honestly don't think this doctor knows anything about PCOS...she started out by having me take 10mg a day for 10 days in a row...
no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> will not hurt the baby if you are then you will not get a period.
Do people usually have problems conceiving the first few months they go off the pill? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> work? I also want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> lose weight before I have a baby. As <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is I am not comfortable in my skin. If anyone has suggestions or would like to chat, please email me at butterfly_baybee2005***@**** I will respond to everyone! Also, will you only conceive on certain days of the month?
This is actually one of the side effects of the drug. Are you taking it on the days prescribed? Are you taking it at exactly the same time for each dose? Those are things that can affect how well the medication works. I would wait about four more days and then contact the doctor. Some medications can take several months to "kick in" but this shouldn't be the case here.
At least the way I read it was that you can get pregnant if you choose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> wait a little while longer, meaning that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> will probably <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a little longer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get pregnant with PCOS, but with the correct Dr - who gets bloodwork done to check your hormones, and gets those straightened out w/prescriptions - you should have no problems. I am 38, just diagnosed with PCOS - probably had it since High School, but just not TTC.
I'm pretty sure he's going to back me down to 175 or 150mcg (sniffle). I just didn't want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> wait the two months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> would <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> him on a regular appointment since I felt a huge "shift" in my heat tolerance, mood, etc. around New Years and figured my TSH was down around (or below) the target range we established of of <1.0. I'm watching out for the cardiac symptoms but no problems so far. My car knows the way to the emergency room if there are symptoms.
Andrea, Just read your post. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> have you been on BC pills? If <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is recent, you may want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> try a time off them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> see if your heart rate improves (if you can change to another BC method). I do think there is some link to hormones and increased heart rate. Otherwise from what I've been reading here and in talking to my cardiologist, no one really know what starts IST. I'm still working on trying to find the right mix of meds to treat IST and my hypertension. it is taking a while.
I have fibromyalgia that is well managed - just a flare once in a while. I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> bupropion for the depression and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> doesn't help. I don't want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> play around with antidepressants. I'm going to the gym 4 days a week which helps with the depression. I am sick of doctors I don't know where to turn. I find some doctors cold and uncaring. does anyone know a doctor in the Boston area that's nice? Any advice for the symptoms is much appreciated. Please help.

for those of you that have taken provera- how long did <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for your periods <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> start? I am starting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> worry so I took a pregancy test and there was an EVER SO SLIGHT second line. it really depended on how you held it up to the light though. I took another one immediately after and there was no second line. I'm scared to death that I might have gotten pregnant before I started taking the provera and that taking it could cause birth defects. Has anyone had any expereince with this?
I was put on another hormone medroxyprogesterone which is supposed to stop the bleeding. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> seems that after I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> in the evening, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> seem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> slow me down. The problem occurs after taking my Levothyroxine again in the morning. I get very heavy bleeding again. Can I take both in the morning? Maybe one will balance the other. So far the bleeding doesn't want to give up. I do also have at least 1 fibroid & just had an ultrasound. The doctors think I'm in perimenopause.
Emma if you go that long without periods you definetly should get checked out for sure! Thats <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> I found out I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> I didnt have periods ever. Yes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> give you mood swings and really its alot to handle sometimes but if you take care of yourself and eat good and excercise you will feel normal.. If you are prescribed metformin by advice to you would be dont give up on it becuase it is a rough medication and side affects are horrible for the first 2 weeks then it gets better.
She just delivered her baby on tuesday, of course a preemie, but she wasnt due until july, so it did make things a little awkward for me being there and thinking i could have been over 5 months right now getting prepared myself. I dont know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get that opportunity again! hopefully soon!
I started on it at 15 and was too small and young to handle even the lowest dose. At 19 I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> Medroxyprogesterone. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is made up of only half of what is in birth control, on a very low dose. My first period lasted 2 weeks, as both uteruses went at once. That is when it is painful. In terms of pregnancy, I am very fearful myself. Plenty of women have success stories but plenty don't. As purpletuzita said, you should have her kidney's checked.
With as lousy as I am feeling I highly doubt that reducing the synthroid a tad is going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> fix much. Also, my face suddenly broke terribly. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> seems I have all the symptoms of low estrogen but my doc is just saying to change the synthroid. Any advice?
I am still very frightened as I have never felt like this before in my life - I feel disconnected to the world around me and am very teary and feel depressed, but the next minute I feel fine again - could these mood swings be due to the implant or some residual stemetil drug reaction? I am too embarrased <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> talk <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> my GP about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for the synthetic progesterone to leave my body? I just want to feel normal again, the way I did before I had stemetil and the implanon.
She wont let me start my pills until the 1st day of September because she said it is easier <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> keep track of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> if I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> the 1st thru the 10th. I cannot wait <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get started with my pills and get my periods coming again so she can put me on Clomid to induce ovulation and hopefully I can get pregnant!
my-fake-domain-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> and web-space. Then it's just a matter of putting up all sorts of crap. If these guys are screwing patients for 60KUSD and their initial investment is 40USDx10 (10 websites) not to mention all the free web-hosting offered by google/yahoo/blogspot etc.. well.. quite a profitable business! They don't even bother to fake their whois information (whois info is info YOU provide when you buy a web-domain eg: crap.
but I wouldnt think my doctor would do it if it would hurt anything. Im going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> figure out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> tell my Big Boss that Im pregnant... then try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> out of her if she is going to pay me for maturnity leave... one of the girls in the office said I shouldnt count on it. I really jsut need to know bc if not, we are really going to have to start pinching pennies since my checks are the ones that pay the morgage and the bills to the house(water, elect. etc.).
I was shocked and that made me start searching on line and talking to doctors, until in September 08 I found a doctor who was also willing to preserve my organs and worried about my fertility since I don't have any kids. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> make the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> story short, I was operated on December 08 and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> turned out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be an endometrioma and I also had adhesions. The surgery took longer than expected, but the doctor was able to preserve my ovary. afterwards.
I'll wait to see if I reach peak as I know it can take a couple cycles to "get to know you". I'll let you know how it goes!! You have up to day 5 to put in your period so day day 6-9 was low fert and today (day 10) came up high so we'll see. told the hubby to get ready lol. Our daughter turns 4 at the end of this month so we were trying to time it for an august baby as she will be starting school this coming Sept.
