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 n tn I know that it is supposed to mean you are pregnant if you don't start your period after a round of it, but I have been infertile for years and... let's just say that the chances of me getting pregnant are very few and far between... What I would like to know is there any other reason why I would not be getting a period after a round of medorxyprogesterone - besides being pregnant? Has this happened to anyone else?
Avatar n tn for four days prolonge getting pregnant? that was my first and only abortion, will that cause fertility problems? (i was exactly eight weeks) I would appreciate it if no one would be-grudge me, for I know the mistake I made and I'm now living with it every day. I look forward to any responses, information, etc. Thank You!
1906894 tn?1321877167 Hi ladies, I just wanted to add to this thread here, my practicioner had also perscribed me to take medroxyprogesterone for 10 days to help regulate my cycle, and amongst it doing its job I am also a 34b and have also noticed breast tenderness and swelling with it but i am assuming it was to be expected after my practicioner explained the effects of the drug to me.
Avatar f tn We didn't have sex or anything but some of the things we did made me really paranoid that there was a small chance I could be pregnant. I stressed out really hard that month and missed my period. I took two pregnancy tests and they both came out negative, afterwards I went to the doctor and was prescribed Medroxyprogesterone. My period came and it was a normal flow that lasted the same amount of time as it always does. Right now I'm currently taking Tri-Sprintec.
Avatar f tn We've then decided to stop actively trying to conceive for now, but recently I am starting to think about trying again. Will continuing to take medroxyprogesterone help or hurt my chances of getting pregnant? Is there something else more effective that will regulate my periods without preventing pregnancy? More information is that I was on birth control for about 8 years and have been taking medroxyprogesterone for about a year now. I take 2 pills per day for the first 15 days of every month.
Avatar f tn Hi, I wanted to know what are my chances of getting pregnant after taking medroxyprogesterone the depo provera pills? I went to the dr last month because I haven't had my period for over 5 months and I had to take those pills for 5 days and after the last day I had to wait 5 days after the pills for my period to come down and it did.

706727 tn?1229096832 We finally found out we were pregnant and we were very excited. At 8 weeks and 4 days I mc on September 14th. After I mc I bledd for about 17 days. I haven't had a cycle yet and the doctor just keeps telling me to wait it out. I had spotting Nov 17- the 19 but only when I went to the bathroom. I spotted again Dec 8 and today. Please help I don't know what to do, am very frustrated, and we just want to have a healthy beautiful baby.
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Avatar f tn well I never usually go past 25-26 days from the last day of my period. I am late and I went to the doctor and they did pregnancy test and it came back negative. I also took two hpt. I have had the normal symptoms right before my period arrives..sore breast, bloated tummy...but still not period. I had a little discharge but not a lot..so doc gave me antibiotics for it. I am to take 5 mg Medroxyprogesterone twice a day for 5 days.
Avatar n tn put me on medroxyprogesterone for 10 days. I held off taking it because I really thought I was pregnant. I gave in and took it. 7 days after my last pill I had a lot of pain and cramping and passed a large clot that looked like tissue (I had a miscarrage at age 41) and it looked the same. Let me know what happened with you. This all happened yesterday 1-25-06. Makes me realize next time listen to my body.
430388 tn?1239588723 i really want my own baby with my husband we can take care of it and it hurts me knowing that i cant get pregnant and i see all these babies around me and women who are pregnant it just hurts me i goback in two weeks but i just cant seem to wait.
Avatar m tn Then, I went to the gyno again and she suggested I take that 10 day medicine every three months or go on birth control. I took the medroxyprogesterone and again got my period on the 8th pill, then that Sunday I started birth control. I just finished my first birth control pack and I had my period throughout the whole things. The blood flow was somewhat light but I had many blood clots. My doctor does not seem to know what the problem is.
Avatar n tn If you took it and had a period then you were not pregnant and if you took it and didnt have a period then you were pregnant. Provera or the generic that you are talking of is pretty much progesterone and it will help your uterus. Dont worry it wont harm a pregnancy. Best of luck!
Avatar f tn My sister in law missed 3 or 4 periods in a row and then low and behold it came (and she wasnt pregnant, she was going to her doctors and got tests done) Other things can make you late, change in diet, stress, recent weight gain or weight loss. I would call your doctor they can do a blood pregnancy test on you and tell you for sure and if it comes up negative they might want to see you if they can figure out why you are late.

Avatar f tn I received 2 shots and wasn't aware that I got pregnant during this time.........Is there a connection?? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/275403'>taking depo provera while pregnant</a>.
143868 tn?1263932445 I spoke to my OBGYN and told her i am trying to get pregnant so she put me on medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10 days i got my period the last day of the dose. My period lasted about 5 days after that i had sex with hubby and now 9 days later i am having this light bleeding i dnt have cramps or anything and i really want to have a baby so is it possible that this is implantation bleeding? please help me i want to be a mommy really bad thnx.
Avatar n tn Yes, you can get pregnant without periods, I have a 14 and 9 year old to prove it. Both were suprises and I was about 3-5 months pregnant when I found out. 2.) 6 months to figure out why you haven't had a period is far too long. I went 16 months without a period and my doctor freaked out when she found out (I recently changed doctors). Cysts can make you irregular, as can thyroid conditions. I'm sure there are other reasons.
Avatar f tn and aslo if we have sex durning my period can the blood kill his sperm cells and stop me from getting pregnant or can i even get pregnant while on my period?? THANKS!!!
Avatar f tn By any chance did you ask the farmacist if medroxyprogesterone had any effects with plan B sometimes certain hormones or medicines may conteract and perhaphs you are pregnant or perhaphs its just plan B side effect. Any how any time u have intercoarse you have 20% getting pregnant. When did you have sex?
1433738 tn?1284359825 I keep takeing hpt and they all comeout negative can anybody help me and tell me what can it be.
Avatar n tn I went on the pill - which i am pretty bad at (can never remember - hence the reason for depo to begin with)...and ended up getting pregnant 10 months later. I'm now 37w 3d with a healthy little girl! So don't give up hope!!!
Avatar n tn I have been sick for last couple of weeks and had my rode in my arm removed about 2 weeks ago and I have signs of being pregnant I have been vomiting and my boobs are really tender and I have blue vains sticking up and really tired if I am not pregnant what could it be and I suffer with polcycistic ovaries
Avatar n tn Hi, it's not a silly question at all. I'm older than you, however I had endometriosis all of my life and had 3 surgeries because my case was so severe. I do recall taking Lupron for about 6 months and constantly "felt pregnant.

349601 tn?1219809462 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. as im doing this research I find out that it has been proven that these meds cause birth defects in the babys genitals when taken and it is recommended that a dr not proscribe this medication! I have been taking these pills for a month!
