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?
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.

I was told to start the Lysteda I originally and preferred to take . Why didnt my period stop ? I thought that was the whole thing with Medroxyprogesterone. Now I have to have a biopsy and blood work . What if it doesnt stop will this medicine be used again ?
2051102 tn?1330321233 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).
Avatar n tn My experience, I was given medroxyprogesterone to induce my period as well, and I didn't start bleeding until about 2-3 days after finishing the 10 days. However, this is my third time taking it, and I actually started bleeding about 8 days into it this time. So it may differ! It probably wouldn't hurt just to give your doctor a call though, and just tell them it hasn't worked and you feel nauseated. They should be able to take it from there. Good luck!
Avatar n tn well I took it and starting bleeding on the day I took my last pill. My dr forwarned me that it doesn't always work the first time to give it 2-3 wks after the last pill if it doens't start she will do it a second time.
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 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 Didn't know if I should repost to your question as to what type of progesterone I was on. It's Medroxyprogesterone, 10 mgs. and the patch is Vivelle .1, But, I only use either 1/4 to 1/2. I seem to need 1/2 when I'm on the Medroxyprogesterone because sometimes the night sweats come back during those 10 days. I also have Prometriu which I don't use. Can someone switch from Medroxyprogesterone to Prometrium. My girlfriend takes the Prometrium every day instead of Medroxyprogesterone for 10 days.
Avatar n tn this cycle i have been spotting since the last three days which began on the 14th day. i have never had mid cycle bleeding before and i'm really really scared. the egg white cervical fluid is pink tinged and has what seems bright red blood. my luteal phase always lasts 14 days. i keep track of my basal temp and cervical fluid and i can say till now i think i never had an anovulatory phase. please help.

Avatar f tn i have pcos and been trying for 16months after mc.not oving so doc presc med and clomid any info would be appreciated and how long do i wait before i contact my docs.
Avatar f tn Then re-prescribed the medroxyprogesterone and Clomid. Upping the dose to a double dosage. Well it's now Oct 27 and I finished the 12 day cycle of medicine about 10 days ago. And I still have not started my period. The problem I am having is.... I had tender breasts for about two weeks starting Sept 19 and then vomiting started occurring fairly often. Last Thursday I was having what felt like horrible cramps but no bleeding. Although Wednesday I had light spotting when I woke up.
Avatar f tn He put me on medroxyprogesterone for 5 days and right after that i got my period. it lasted for 5 days and stopped and then all of a sudden started again and hasent stopped since. I don't know what is going on! I'm affraid of going thru that again! It was the worst experience ever because i didn't know what was supposed to exacxtly happen and my doctor at the time wasn't helping me by telling me what to expect. I wish you luck!
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.
20811884 tn?1518853698 My menstrual cycle was completely irregular in which I had from January 3rd, 2018 to January 6th, 2018 and then started up again on January 11, 2018 and went through all the way until February 5th, 2018. The gynecologist prescribed me 10 pills of MedroxyProgesterone with a 10 day supply and only said that this would regulate my periods. However, the one thing the gynecologist failed to mention is that I would start up again between 24 to 72 hours of the last pill I had taken.
Avatar f tn hi i am just wondering if my chances to conceive are higher after taking medroxyprogesterone my obgyn put me on this o regulate my period, i got my period right after i was finished with the last dose and 9 days later after i got off my period im having very light bleeding can i be pregnant?
Avatar f tn Years ago when I was taking Levothyroxine I also had very, very heavy bleeding and would sometimes bleed the way you described (off and on, weeks at a time, and very heavy). I have no idea if it was connected to the Levothyroxine or not. It didn't happen all the time but there was a period of time it was happening. It could be any number of things that are causing it.
16221027 tn?1446217790 I've had that before but it was a long time ago, and it only happend for a day. To remind you i am 18 years old. and my partner and i only had sex once since i started this pill but it was protected sex. I'm not sure when the best time for me to start haveing unprotected sex after my period. but I am wondering if i should be starting my period soon or not? i've looked up all sorts of different questions and answers but still haven't found the right answers i'm looking for.
Avatar n tn 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. The problem is i started spotting and cramping last night and today actually had to use a tampon. It is a very drk brown and thick color no abnormal odor.
12592325 tn?1426128957 I took five days worth of the medroxyprogesterone last week and I am now bleeding and clotting very heavily. Should I take another 5 days worth or wait?
Avatar f tn I 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 f tn After having the non stop bleeding from jan 14 thru feb 14 my doctor put me on medroxyprogesterone and that made me get my period and made the bleeding stop for about 9 days. then all of a sudden here it is again! it's like a surprise every morning waking up and seeing that it has continued. I dont know exactly whats going on. the other day i kind of had a little more bleeding than the normal spotting i get and passed 2 clots but it wasnt like a normal period.
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 ?
Avatar f tn Everything was going good and then all of a sudden starting yesterday I started cramping and started bleeding, like I am back on my period. Is this something to be concerned with or what? I read about break through bleeding after menapause but since it has not been 12 months yet of no period do I start all over again.
Avatar n tn I'm taking medroxyprogesterone to treat my irregular period and so far, I have just had one tablet. My doc. prescribed me for 5 days taking it and Im wondering how long does it takes me to bleeding after taking the medication?
Avatar f tn PROVERA IS USED FOR TREATMENT OF AMENORRHEA Amenorrhea is the absence of menstrual bleeding and may be primary or secondary. •Primary amenorrhea is the absence of menstrual bleeding and secondary sexual characteristics (for example, breast development and pubic hair) in a girl by age 14 years or the absence of menstrual bleeding with normal development of secondary sexual characteristics in a girl by age 16 years.
Avatar f tn well its been 7 weeks like i said and on the 19 of last month i went in to the ER because i was bleeding quite a bit and they put me on 10mg of Medroxyprogesterone or a more common name, provera. They said it was used to "reset" my body's natural "clock" and start me over, because my body was "confused" and didn't know if it was still pregnant. I took two pills of that for a week like prescribed, the day after i started it, i stopped bleeding.
Avatar m tn I was prescribed medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 3 months because I was starting to bleed daily sometimes with clots sometimes just old spotting (brown discharge)and the medicine stopped the bleeding right away, in fact the very next day. I'm worried because I haven't had a regular menstrual cycle in almost 2 months.
