Avatar n tn This med is a hormone so, be aware of the PMS symptoms. They are a typical symptom and make you moody sometimes. Good luck and sorry to hear of you loss.
Avatar n tn I also had a miscarriage last November and i got my period 4 weeks to the day. My doc told me it varies from 3-8 weeks.
Avatar f tn I was wondering in personal experiences if you can get pregnant really soon after a miscarriage (like 1-3 weeks)? I have already had one successful pregnancy 2 years ago and had a healthy baby boy. We were devastated with our loss. Please give any advice and personal experiences possible...Thank you!
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 i went to my gyno and he wanted me to get blood work done as well as to take a prescription. he p[rescribed me medroxyprogesterone to take for 5 days and that would bring me period one which should stop the non stop bleeding. well after taking the medroxyprogesterone for 5 days, 2 days after finishing it, i got my period (a heavier one) passed that through for the 6 days and it stopped again. exactly 9 days later the light bleeding/spotting started again and it hasent stopped since.

706727 tn?1229096832 Ok I posted a question after my miscarriage in September 08. I was put on medroxyprogesterone to start my cycles again. I have been having regular cycles now 30 days exactly. But my only problem is that half way through my cycle I have brown spotting. Can anyone give me any advice??
Avatar f tn My doctor stated that the procedure may not work due to my age given I was young and that the lining would grow back. Following the procedure my period stopped. Two and half years post ablation I began spotting. My periods returned lighter and irregular. In 2015 I became pregnant, but miscarried. On Friday Feb. 12 I found out that Ibwas pregnant again, but having another miscarriage. My doctor has put me on Medroxyprogesterone to help. I'm hoping to be able to have one more child.
Avatar f tn I should have started my period on 10/4. It's 10/14 (day 40) and still no period. I have pregnancy symptoms and mild lower abdominal cramping, but still no bleeding. I took an at home test when I was 6 days late and it came back negative, but I am still having symptoms. I think that I am it possible?
237300 tn?1231458318 I had a miscarriage on June 18 and a D and C on June 19th. I still haven't gotten my period yet so I called my doctor today. She told me that I should wait two more weeks and if I still haven't had it yet she will give me Provera. Does anybody know if there are any side effects to Provera and why she would hesistate to give it to me? Also how long does it take to get your period after you start taking it and how long do you have to take it?
Avatar f tn Hi, I have a history of miscarriage. I am 41 and am 4 weeks pregnant. My obs/gynae dr has put on pregnyl injections twice weekly,asprin and vitamins and has recommend I start provera medroxyprogesterone acetatae oral tabs 20mg x3 a day from week 5. I am a bit unsure about the provera due to some side effects? How did you find the prometrium I think its similar.
Avatar n tn I have been hurt so many times getting my hopes up and then I either have a miscarriage or simply my period starts, so I guess I am just somewhat trying to put my best face forward and just pray one day that I would be able to carry another baby full term. My one and only child turns 21 years old on tomorrow. I have been wanting another child for years now. Just haven't been having any luck. I had three miscarriages in a 18 month time frame between 2001 and 2002.
Avatar f tn ok so i had a DNC done 7 weeks ago. the baby was dead and i hadn't had a miscarriage yet so they had to go in and take it out. 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.
Avatar n tn Thank you, I appreciate that, there are many times I sit here crying or frustrated and feel alone. No one seems to understand around me. I have been spotting everyday for months and the other day with the new gyno hse did the routine stir up things and thats when she started with the surgery talk, she said she hates to do it being I had so many surgeries but that its whats best, that she would decide if I needed a bigger surgery after that. Not sure what that means but, i'll see.

For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Avatar n tn I took provera and was 11weeks preganant and in my case I had a miscarriage ...something like thats give makes you want to die especially if you have been trying alot.....Unfortunately for me I did not know that I was until I saw the fetus. in the bathroom ....
Avatar n tn He told me it was a case in which my egg was never released so I was prescibed a hormone ( medroxyprogesterone) to help regulate my period and stop the bleeding. I recently had a miscarriage in November and afterwords experienced panic attacks and anxiety due to the situation. Last night was my first day to take the hormone pill and about 4 hours after taking it I was awoken from my sleep with my anxiety.
Avatar n tn I noticed this topic online and wanted to share. My mother took Provera to prevent miscarriage in in 1974. I was born with a club foot on my left side. I found out in my 30's that I am missing my left kidney, ovary, and the left side of my uterus is underdeveloped. I did have a daughter nine years ago, but delivered c-section b/c she was breech.
143868 tn?1263932445 Hi, I am 32 years old and have not concieved in 12 years (I have never used any sort of contraceptives) Last year I lost alot of weight and a few months ago I had a miscarriage. What I would like to know is that if my period lasted from 10/06/06 to 15/06/06 could I already be pregnant?
Avatar m tn I eat healthy and workout and have no problem with my weight, no unexplained weight gain, etc. I thought I had a miscarriage because I fell on pavement and landed on my pelvic bone and that's when I started bleeding (my dog whacked me on the back of the knee as we were walking with his head). My ultrasound came back with what looked like pearls on my ovaries but the ultrasound tech said my history does not match with PCOS and that I may just be really fertile.
Avatar m tn We were together only 1 day - 17th Dec 2011. We didn't have proper intercourse and we rubbed our private parts together for some time(20 mins or so). My penis was in direct contact with here vagina. Even though there was no ejaculation, i wont rule out pre-*** etc (Both of us a are virgins) >She had her last period on 4th-10th Nov. 2011 (No period in December). She is fairly regular but sometimes skips by a month. > From 29th Dec 2011, she started spotting which stopped after 2-3 days.
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 n tn you can always call your pharmacist and ask to make sure. My husband and I are TTC and I took the Depo shot twice and stopped 11/04 and then started BCP till 8/05 and havent had a period since except with provera. I think the Depo is still in my system and is screwing everything up. I hope the provera works for you and best of luck with the clomid.
Avatar n tn I had a miscarriage in Sept05 and my periods have progressivly got longer and heavier. Ive been prescribed medroxyprogesterone acetate (provera) to regulate my periods,on days 15 to 25 of my cycle. Was told it would not interfer with my fertility but all info ive seen clearly states do not use if pregnant. I could get pregnant then take the provera as i wont know im pregnant til i miss my next period. Very anxious about any damage i could be doing, any one been in a similar situation??
