Avatar_f_tn Hello, I am taking Medroxyprogesterone also. I took it for 10 days and 3-4 days later spotting occured, then 2 days after AF arrived. The way I took it was before I went to bed. I've heard it has some bad effects, which was the case the first round. I did see my doctor during the first round of taking (for other reasons) and casually said that "yesterday was the last day" and she had mentioned that AF would come within 10 days.

Avatar_f_tn If it is a full period, you can stop the Medroxyprogesterone. If it is spotting, continue taking it. Machelle M.
Avatar_f_tn And he proscribed me medroxyprogesterone to get rid of my ovarian cysts. Well last month when I took the medicine I started my period three days before finishing the 12 day course. Returned to my doctor for Clomid to cause ovulation. Therefore to cause pregnancy. My days for possibility to get pregnant were Sept 12-Sept 22. I then returned to my doctor on day 35(Oct 7). He did a pregnancy test that came back negative. Then re-prescribed the medroxyprogesterone and Clomid.
Avatar_f_tn on Sept 5 2008 my doctor prescribed medroxyprogesterone. started taking the tablets that same night,10mg for ten days. I took my last dose on 9/14/08. and 4 days later I got my period , very heavy flow. it lasted 10 agonizing days. I could not even walk right!!! and my hips hurt really bad, well I figured that it had been almost 3 yrs of no period and well i got over it. but i started spotting on 9/30/08 and still am!!!.
Avatar_f_tn Hello All, It's been Six days since my last medroxyprogesterone (provera) pill and I'm waitinf for AF to show and nothing! So of course her I go with the worrying. I have PCOS so the chances of me being pregnant right now without the Clomid Metformin and Medroxyprogesterone is slim to none as I haven't had a cycle since July of Last year.
Avatar_n_tn Now I hadn't taken my medicine for my thyroid in months, b/c I was trying to boost my metabolism naturally by exercising, and I had a period and spotting during the months not on the medication. When I got the positive on the digital pregnancy test, we went and had blood work done, and a sonogram, and I was told my thyroid was fine and that I was not pregnant.

143868_tn?1263932445 What I would like to know is that if my period lasted from 10/06/06 to 15/06/06 could I already be pregnant? The reason I am asking is because today I had some light spotting which went away after wipping 4-5 times, also since yesterday I have had cramping and kind of a heavy/slightly tender feeling area below my navel which is very obvious. I also had very unusually bad mood swings 3 days ago which I know were very hormonal. should I get my hopes up?
1855970_tn?1325827213 I have been taking Medroxyprogesterone (Provera) for 11 months now to induce my period each month. I take 10mg days 16-26 each month. I usually get my period 2-5 days after i stop the medicine. This month however, its day 11 and still no period. For the past week or so I have been experiencing very painful/sensitive nipples, slight abdominal cramping, excessive tiredness, headaches, and nausea.
Avatar_n_tn Depo-Provera injection contains the active ingredient medroxyprogesterone acetate. It disrupts the menstrual cycle. It also causes irregular bleeding or spotting, heavy or prolonged bleeding, or your menstrual bleeds to stop altogether. It is quite effective in preventing pregnancy. This is merely an advice and not a substitute of clinical examination. Consult your attending doctor. Take care!
Avatar_f_tn I got my first depo shot January 9 started spotting on the 13th of February (only spotted for that one day). Bleeding started back up on the 18th it is now February 27 and I'm still bleeding.  I'm so worried what should I do? I'm not taking the shot no more. If I go back on the birth control pill would that stop the spotting/bleeding ?
706727_tn?1229096832 I was put on medroxyprogesterone to start my cycles again. I have been having regular cycles now 30 days exactly. But my only problem is that half way through my cycle I have brown spotting. Can anyone give me any advice??
Avatar_m_tn Hi, I had my Mirena IUD removed on February 27 and the next day I started to bleed like a regular period. It has been 7 days and I am still bleeding. The problem is I was bleeding and spotting since Feb. 3. My Flow is Now Quite heavy. Has anyone else had this problem? My Dr. Suggested taking Medroxyprogesterone to stop my period and take it for 3 weeks then stop so that it helps to regulate my cycle. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thankyou.
Avatar_n_tn I have been on birth control up till 3 months ago due to irregular periods, I just had a pap smear that came back clear, and started the day after. I bleed heavily for about 4 days and have been prescribed medroxyprogesterone to control the bleeding. I have also just started taking a blood pressure medicine and am on my second week. I am 36 and have a sonogram scheduled on monday to prepare for an upcoming hysterectomy within the year.
Avatar_n_tn cramping spotting when wipe, I am 11 weeks late just 4 days ago I had pink to brown discharge when wipe, did an ultrasound not pregnant, dr put me on provera 10 mg could i still be pregnant since it could have been too soon to detect because of the recent discharge?
Avatar_n_tn I was confused about some results i have gotten in past few months I posted earlier in the month. My gyno has decided on doing laproscopic surgery, she gave me medroxyprogesterone starting march 1 said I will bleed March 10, then go back to her 22nd. Is this normal for before this surgery? She also said she will remove what doesnt belong, and anything else she thinks needs to be removed. I just had abdominoplasty in november, I am very nervous. Is that progesterone necessary?
349601_tn?1219809462 these pills are Medroxyprogesterone 10 mg. So i started taking them when he told me to, i got my period so me and my husband started ttc again...well about 4 dpo i started spotting, and a few days later i was getting sick and feeling light headed all the time and just wanted to lay down. I thought maybe i was pregnant and was getting early symptoms. well i wanted to google the meds that the dr gave me just to see what they do and how they work.
Avatar_f_tn I went to see my gynocologist monday because I had spotting and bleeding since July 28th and ended up in urgent care that previous friday. My gyn Dr. wanted to put me on medroxyprogesterone acetate 10mg but while I was in the office they gave me a vaginal biopsy and was scheduled for a ultrasound so I wanted to get my results before I start my hormone medicine.Doctor called me the next day and said I have a non-cancerous firbroid and polyp from the biopsy results.
Avatar_m_tn My doctor prescribed Medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10 days I didn't take it the first 2 days, because i was concerned after reading more about it. my husband and I are trying to conceive. I had my Mirena IUD taken out and 4 days after i started my period, it is now 10 days later and i'm still on my period! so my doc prescribed this medication to me from what i gathered it is to stop the bleeding. will this make me ovulate after i have finished taking it?
1855970_tn?1325827213 back in january, my doctor started me on medroxyprogesterone (Provera) to induce my period each month because I had gone 6 years without a period. I take the 10mg pill on days 16-25 each month and my period begins 3-5 days after the last pill. It has been working just fine from Jan-July. My period usually will last 3-7 days. Last month (august) my period was very light and lasted about 4 days. This month, my period started very early (I had 3 of the pills to take yet).
Avatar_f_tn My GYN put me on a 10 day course of 10 mg Medroxyprogesterone. After starting the 10 day course I started spotting dark brown blood on day 4, then I started spotting again after 3-3 1/2 weeks but it was still spotting but not like a regular cycle. The doctor thinks that I passed the progesterone challenge and said that my hormones look fine. About five days ago my nipples started getting really sore which is something I haven't experienced in quite a while.

Avatar_n_tn I realize I may be peri-menopausal missing periods and then heavy to light over days, then dark spotting and lasting for several weeks sometimes. My recent bloodwork results showed all normal with TSH but Prolactin slightly low at 2.5.
Avatar_f_tn Since, approx. two weeks ago, I started having dark bloody spotting, bloating, cramps and a back ache. Last week I had symptoms of a bladder infection too so made an appointment to see my GYN. Cultures were taken to check for vaginal and bladder infections and an utra sound was scheduled for what appeared to be an enlarged uterus and possibly fibroids.
Avatar_f_tn In both of my pregnancies, I never had it. Also, it is usually defined as spotting, light bleeding, pink, brown or red discharge, mucosy discharge or any combination of those. But, as I mentioned I think many many women do not get implantation bleeding. It's more or less explained to people so that if they do experience it they don't think they are having a miscarriage, and that it is quite normal.
