Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take medroxyprogesterone to work


777396 tn?1329791151 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 to take it 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...
Avatar n tn no it will not hurt the baby if you are then you will not get a period.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn got prescribed medroxyprogesterone 10mg to stop my bleeding of 2months. how long does it take to work? I been taking it for 3days and still heavy bleeding.
Avatar n tn Do people usually have problems conceiving the first few months they go off the pill? How does it work? I also want to lose weight before I have a baby. As it 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?
430388 tn?1239588723 At least the way I read it was that you can get pregnant if you choose to wait a little while longer, meaning that it will probably take a little longer to 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.
Avatar n tn Amber hello! wow so 7-8 years later here in 2015 i am curious about your post!! :") back ground story on myself, i am currently ttc, trying to get my periods back on track really....after getting off of BC last year. i was put on Provera for the 2nd time now to help induce a period...first time around i had no complications at all! came 5 days post provera, and all was good! :") this time around again 10 pills for 10 days, all is well....i am on day 4 post pill...
158939 tn?1274918797 I'm pretty sure he's going to back me down to 175 or 150mcg (sniffle). I just didn't want to wait the two months it would take to get in to 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.
Avatar n tn Andrea, Just read your post. How long have you been on BC pills? If it is recent, you may want to try a time off them to 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.
Avatar f tn I have fibromyalgia that is well managed - just a flare once in a while. I take bupropion for the depression and it doesn't help. I don't want to 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.
1611503 tn?1325485790 you have been so helpful lol thankyou, so ok i probably need to take clomid if by the end of this month i dnt conceive how much is it or does it have to b doctor prescribed??? and what kind lol girl you gotta help me plus im about to be a navy wife and we made plans to have a baby in our new home im just lost right now.
Avatar n tn For those of you that have taken Provera- how long did it take for your periods to start? I am starting to 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?
Avatar f tn I was put on another hormone medroxyprogesterone which is supposed to stop the bleeding. It seems that after I take it in the evening, it does seem to 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.
706727 tn?1229096832 ) Let us know how your blood work turns out :)
Avatar n tn Emma if you go that long without periods you definetly should get checked out for sure! Thats how I found out I had it I didnt have periods ever. Yes it does 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.
Avatar f tn 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 how long it will take me to get that opportunity again! hopefully soon!
Avatar n tn how big are the needles you have to take the hcg with? what guage size also how many cc is equal to 125 iu.
Avatar f tn I started on it at 15 and was too small and young to handle even the lowest dose. At 19 I take Medroxyprogesterone. It 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.
Avatar n tn 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 to talk to my GP about it. How long does it take 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.
Avatar n tn She wont let me start my pills until the 1st day of September because she said it is easier to keep track of it if I take it the 1st thru the 10th. I cannot wait to 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!
Avatar n tn With as lousy as I am feeling I highly doubt that reducing the synthroid a tad is going to fix much. Also, my face suddenly broke terribly. It seems I have all the symptoms of low estrogen but my doc is just saying to change the synthroid. Any advice?
Avatar n tn How long does it take to recover. Plus ,do you know any organizations that help people without insurance. desperate for answers.
Avatar n tn For some women it can take as long as they were on it to get pregnant after stopping it. But if you are truly concerned with this, it wouldnt hurt to talk with your OB about it and make sure there is nothing else going on.
299260 tn?1304219705 but I wouldnt think my doctor would do it if it would hurt anything. Im going to have to figure out how to tell my Big Boss that Im pregnant... then try to get it 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.).
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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. To make the long story short, I was operated on December 08 and it turned out to be an endometrioma and I also had adhesions. The surgery took longer than expected, but the doctor was able to preserve my ovary. Afterwards.
Avatar n tn 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.
