Avatar f tn Hello, The cause of irregular periods could be due to hormonal imbalance, stress, chronic illness, polycystic ovarian disease, thyroid gland disorders or diseases, pituitary gland tumors or cyst, galactorrhea, prolactinomas etc. You should consult a gynecologist and get examined and investigated as soon as possible to know the exact cause of all these episodes.
2051102 tn?1330321233 I went back on the medication Medroxyprogesterone this month. I was on it in March and started my period as normal but instead of lasting 14 days it lasted 12. Last month I forgot that I was suppose to take the medication and as normal I started but one day early and again it lasted 12 days. I started on the 2nd of this month and my period was suppose to start on the 7th of this month, I am now 5 days late.
Avatar m tn i've gone 6 months without getting it without being pregnant or anything like that. My doctor prescribed me Medroxyprogesterone about a week ago and told me to take it for 5 days until i get my period then start taking birth control once it starts. it's been about 8 days and i still havent gotten my period. she says that it you dont get your period for more than 3 months (without the medicine, naturally) then i have a great risk of uterus cancer.
Avatar f tn I was bleeding for 3 months straight and my obgyn put me on medroxyprogesterone to make it stop. I started it the day before I was predicted to ovulated. I have been off it over a week and was told when I stopped I should spot and then my period should come normally. I have been having unprotected sex and I am 3 days late on my period. I have no clue what is going on. My questions is has anyone taken this and had this problem?
Avatar n tn Hello! I am a pharmacist and wanted to let you know that medroxyprogesterone will NOT stop you from becoming pregnant if you are taking it for 5-10 days to induce a period. It will have nothing to do with the rest of the month. During your normal cycle your progesterone raises right before your period and that drop in levels causes the period. The medroxyprogesterone is just like that normal rise and drop. I hope this helps!
1906894 tn?1321877167 I feel like someone ran me over. My breast feel so sore.
873416 tn?1250338946 I am currently on Day 4 of a 14 day therapy of medroxyprogesterone. I have been on BCP for 12 years and went off on 02/23/2009. 7 weeks later and no period I went to my doctor who put me on Provera to hopefully jump start my period. Once it comes I am to start charting for 3 cycles and then return for analysis. So once I start menses then I will start to track. That's why there is nothing on here yet.
873416 tn?1250338946 15dpo and BFNs CD44 - going back on medroxyprogesterone today to kick start AF again. Don't think I O'd this month afterall but what do I know. Back to the drawing board.
16221027 tn?1446217790 6 days ago i was perscribed Medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10days. i was having side effects so i decided to stop taking it. and it's been 2 days since the 5th dose. I've been having brown discharge and light cramping in my lower stomach. I'm not sure if this is even right? Or not. I'm also trying to eventually have a baby. i'm 18. i've been with my partner for almost a year. i've never really had regular period.
Avatar f tn My D.O. just prescribed Medroxyprogesterone at my request; I had been on this before for PCOS, but I don't think it was prescribed to me in the correct way as I remember. The prescription is written to take 1 tablet(10mg) by mouth once daily. I don't think I am to take this every day for 30 days, so could you tell me what the correct dosage is for this problem and when do I begin taking it? Seems to me that I took it after I had a period for a period of 5 -10 days, I just can't remember.
Avatar f tn I got the prescription from the doctor to take 10mg/day of MEDROXYPROGESTERONE ACETATE. However, since I started taking the medicine too late, 2 days after I took the medicine, I still had my period, so I stopped taking it. On May 13th, I had unprotected sex. My question is: is it safe to get pregnant within a month after taking 20mg of MEDROXYPROGESTERONE ACETATE? Many thanks!
Avatar m tn I had blood work done and I am not full menopause - so my DR, put me on Medroxyprogesterone for 10 days to start it up. Is it true that these drugs can make you more fertile after all is on track? I've posted before as I would love to get pregnant. When I thought I was full menopause I was sad to say the least. I hear so many stories of people that get surprised during pre-menopause when they think they are safe and then get pregnant - I should be so lucky! Thanks in advance for your help.

Avatar m tn My girlfriend will start taking Medroxyprogesterone acetate, my question is if there’s a waiting period before we can start having sex without any other kind of contraception (like condoms or diaphragm) Thanks for the atention
2051102 tn?1330321233 I will be doing this for 6 months. Why is this medication prescribed? Medroxyprogesterone is used to treat abnormal menstruation (periods) or irregular vaginal bleeding. Medroxyprogesterone is also used to bring on a normal menstrual cycle in women who menstruated normally in the past but have not menstruated for at least 6 months and who are not pregnant or undergoing menopause (change of life).
349601 tn?1219809462 I was perscribed Medroxyprogesterone 10 mg by my dr to help me start my period after missing it for 2 months and then to help me conceive. I did some research on the internet though and it said that it had been proven that this med causes birth defects.... should I really be taking this?? and shouldnt the dr have at least warned me about this affect? I want to get pregnant but I want a healthy baby.
Avatar n tn I accidentally took a medroxyprogesterone pill...I thought I was taking my folic acid. Is this harmful in any way? I was on cycle day 4 when I took the pill by accident. We have been trying for a year to get pregnant, so I am very nervous.
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 n tn Hello, I just was given a 10 day cycle of medroxyprogesterone and it has been several days since I finished taking it and I have yet to bleed! Has anyone else had this happen? I am very queezy and feel like I am going to throw up but don't actually, ever since I stopped taking the medicine. Again, no bleeding at all has occurred. I am getting worried on why that is. Anybody know what to do?
1855970 tn?1325827213 I'm kind of glad she didn't do one, but I feel like she should have. She prescribed me provera (medroxyprogesterone) to take the 16th through the 26th of each month. Within a week of stopping the hormone, I should get my period. Here's my problem, yesterday was my first dose... Then last night I woke up around 3am with lower abdominal pressure. I went to the bathroom (pee) and felt a little better. But this morning I still feel a little discomfort.
Avatar n tn recently started taking Medroxyprogesterone for heavy bleeding..I've had all the test ultra sounds,d&c,hysteroscopy etc..to rule out cancer..I've been in menopause for 3 years but because of a thick uterus lining I do bleed.. I was taking the medroxypro for 10 days and now day 4 since I've stopped my 10 days I am bleeding very heavy with clots the size of eggs..is this normal?
Avatar f tn is it possible to get pregnant after taking the medication medroxyprogesterone? are my chances to conceive higher because of this medication?
