Medroxyprogesterone and fertility

Common Questions and Answers about Medroxyprogesterone and fertility


Avatar m tn Hi I posted this under fertility and was advised to post it here - thanks in advance! I am 43 with irregular periods and my period stopped after June. 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 f tn Hello and welcome! Medroxyprogesterone is generally considered a fertility sparing drug .It is used to prevent miscarriage in the first few months of pregnancy. It is also used to induce a menstrual period in cases of amenorrhea .It possesses hormonal activities of follicle stimulating hormone .It can be used for contraception also. It is not safe if taken during early pregnancy. It can cause minor birth defects if taken in the first trimester. Do discuss all your concerns with your doctor.

Avatar f tn Hi im 22 yrs old and started my period when i was 16. My period has never been regular. Since i started my period, it has only come 3 to 4 times a year. i have been having unprotected sex with my boyfriend for 3 yrs now, never been on birth control and have yet to come up pregnant. At first i thought i just had an irregular period but now im scared that i will not be able to conceive. Since the age of 18, doctors have told me that my period will regulate 22 and its still irregular.

Avatar n tn if you were on the fertility meds and progesterone, you will probably feel that way even if you're pregnant or not. you may want to check out webmd Infertility Treatment Support Group (TTC) this board is SO'lll get a lot of information there.
Avatar f tn Laparoscopic surgery provides pain relief and improved fertility over diagnostic laparoscopy without surgery.

430388 tn?1239588723 Do as much research as possible on PCOS and fertility. Look into seeing an Endocrinologist also. That may help you. Best of luck sweetrie and know that it can happen for you as long as you keep a positive outlook and continue to learn about this thing we have called "PCOS". Work with it instead of against it and you will be surprised! Best of luck to you!!!!
Avatar f tn My husband and I aren't ready to try fertility treatments so unfortunately I can't give you much information on that but I have heard that either clomid or femara is a good place to start with PCOS because it helps to induce fertility. I hope this isn't the same for you but when I initially realized I was going so long with out AF and I too started having "pregnancy" symptoms I thought I was pregnant but unfortunately it was just the PCOS fooling me.
Avatar f tn We already have a 10 year old which we had her when we were 17 and we just got married after we both finished school, and now this time we were trying to do it right. Anyway after he brought it up, I took it and ran and so we were off on our journey of ttc.

Avatar f tn DMPA acts by the inhibition of ovulation with the suppression of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and LH levels and eliminates the LH surge. This results in a relative hypoestrogenic state. Single doses of 150 mg suppress ovulation in most women for as long as 14 weeks. The contraceptive regimen consists of 1 dose every 3 months. Efficacy DMPA is an extremely effective contraceptive option. Neither varying weight nor use of concurrent medications has been noted to alter efficacy.
Avatar n tn I have recently started using the Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor on day 12 showed High Fertility, but it has been over a week later and still showing High Fertility status. Can this be accurate or is something wrong?
Avatar n tn I have done lots of research and have an awesome fertility dr.; so if you don't, please feel free to ask me any questions and I can try to help you out! good luck!
Avatar f tn You can also track CM and CP. I agree with vmvnpv, Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weshcler is a fantastic read and almost a "must have" for anyone undertaking charting. She's a great author and it is a very easy read.

Avatar n tn If you are of the age and inclination to have (or have more) children, then these issues do indeed need to be addressed, and it might be best that you seek the services of a fertility specialist.
Avatar f tn ** **Fast forward 4 years after the exam. and LOTS and LOTS of cramps and mood swings later.** I've gain a lot of weight since I started, not going to denying being fat already. I have went to many, many, many doctors. And the end result was always the same. "You're fat, lose weight, exercise, eat right and you'll be okay." Not lying. I'm completely serious about that quote. Okay, I get it. I'm fat and need to lose weight.
Avatar n tn I used Clomid 100mg and prochieve 8% this month and I am on my 30th day and still no period. I've read that prochieve ( progesterone suppository) can delay your period. How long does is the delay? I'm thinking of stopping using it since my pg test was negative. Should I stop? Please help as I am very concern about prolonged use of prochieve.
Avatar n tn Hi I am 23 years old. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 19. I also was diagnosed with HPV when I was about 18. I do not have periods by myself. I weigh about 225 5'7. I have not had a weight problem before I found out I had PCOS. I have been working on my eatting and excercise habits for the past few years. Me and my husband have had unprotected sex for about 2 1/2 years now. I finally went to the dr.
Avatar f tn If my cycle does not come, would it be a good idea to try my nuva ring to try to jumpstart my cycles. I have been taking fertility supplements and I am trying to conceive. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Ever since I had my oldest son, he is now 21 years 3 months old, I've had to take medroxyprogesterone every third month to have a cycle. I had to take fertility drugs to get pregnant with my second son who is now 14 years 2 months old. Everything went according to clockwork until this last April. I started taking the medicine in pill form, but because my husband died, I didn't take my medicine on schedule. I didn't have a cycle, but I did take my medicine again in July and had a cycle.
Avatar n tn Now I'm 29yrs old and I had two miscarriages, and it been a rollercoaster ride for me and my husband. I refuse to go to the fertility dr again. I went to my gyn dr and now I'm on provera to regulate my period. I wonder if I will get pregnant from taken the provera. I have to take the provera for two months until my period get regulated. I wonder during that tme if I will conceive I have to have faith. I think that you ladies also should have faith.
