Common Questions and Answers about Medroxyprogesterone and period


Avatar f tn 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 m tn i didnt have a period for years and i took that same stuff to get it and then stuff to stop it since it wouldnt stop by itself i have been like this for years i have not heard that could cause cancer there are lots of women that are irregular i have had many visits to the doc and have had many clean pap results.

Avatar n tn well I took it b/c my period stop and they did lab levels and my progesterone level was too low on day 10 the last day I was to take the pill I got my "period" well I basically bleed since it isn't really a period. My dr told me to give it 2wks and if nothing happened call them back and we would do they same thing again. It doesn't always work the first time and I have known people that it took another round.
Avatar n tn 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!
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 f tn You should consult a gynecologist and get examined and investigated as soon as possible to know the exact cause of all these episodes. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. 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.
873416 tn?1250338946 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.
16221027 tn?1446217790 but now i am starting this discharge, and i've done a little research saying that you normally discharge 1-2 days before you have your period. I'm hopeing i start having a normal period soon, so i can work on my ovulation and have a child. Maybe not in a month, maybe not in 5 months, but eventually. I'm hoping for good resutls. I don't want to have to go back to the doctor because i didn't have a period.
Avatar f tn I just got married on April 25th, and I was supposed to have my period around that time. 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 n tn Now, in April I have been since April 13 bleeding from spotting to light and was put on Medroxyprogesterone April 30 - May 9th today is the 12th and I am bleeding heavy .. 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 ?
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
Avatar f tn I just found out I had pcos about 3 years ago when I got off the pill and didn't get a period for 8 months. The pill is actually good for women with this syndrome because it regulates us. As far as conceiving, it might be a little trickier, but we are lucky to have such advanced medical treatments to help us. Everyone is different, who knows, you might be one of the lucky ladies to gets pregnant on the first try!  What we do need to be careful of is our weight and eating habits.
2051102 tn?1330321233 That not only made me mad that he said it, but scared at the same time. I just really want this period to be short again and i pray not only for Myself, but for you and other women that we can all get through this and move forward to have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.
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.
Avatar f tn 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. Thank you.

Avatar f tn I finished a dose today and am anxiously awaiting a period as well. My last period was in may and none since. I had slight acne went away if you dont touch them, nausea and extremed mood swing. Today i am gettin cramping under stomach and back pains. It was not so bad for me as well as everyone is different. Its the price we have to pay to actually have a period, hoping me period goes back to normal so i wont have to take any more Provera or bc according to the doctor.
Avatar f tn It has been close to 3 months and still no period. My OBGYN prescribed Medroxyprogestrone to help bring back my cycle. Can this medication help us conceive?
Avatar f tn I have been on 3 different rounds of provera and it didnt work I had all the signs of my period but no period has anyone had this happen if so what did you do
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 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.
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.
777396 tn?1329791151 Hi ladies! I have PCOS as well, never have a period unless prescribed medroxyprogesterone, also don't ovulate. Recently went to a infertility specialist and he is putting me on medroxyprogesterone followed by clomid and femara. That is supposed to jump start the ovaries. Did the vaginal ultrasound that diagnosed me with PCOS, had an MI for my pituitary gland , and a lovey HSG test for the uterus and tubes had a mucous plug but that is about it for now. Keep you updated.
Avatar n tn She put me on Medroxyprogesteron to induce a period that was aweek late and making more cramped and miserable. All it is doing is making me more bloated, more cramping in uterus and lower back. I am crying and miserable. My question is, is this normal and when should my period come?????

Avatar n tn Hello All, On April 16, 2007 I was given Medroxyprosterone to help start my period becuase before then I hadn't had a period since February 17, 2007 and I infact thought that I had finally conceived, but to my non-surprise I hadn't. I made the doc's appointment and was prescibed thess meds. It is now May 4 and I still haven't gotten my period yet.
Avatar n tn all my research says that i should have gotten it within three days after the last pill its been five days and stil no period.... idnt kno why...
1855970 tn?1325827213 I explained how I've always had issues with my period. My last period was august 2011, and before that was december 2009. She didn't do a pelvic exam, because since I'm only 23, we could "wait another year". 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...
Avatar f tn I didn't take the medicine in April due to me being on antibiotics. I didn't have a period in April and haven't had one so far in May. I'm usually regular with my cycles being off a few days. I've never missed a whole month except for my pregnancy with my daughter. I took a test a few days after the 19 of April and it was negative. I've been experiencing several symptoms of pregnancy. I don't know what to do. My doctor wants me to take another test and if it's negative start the medicine again.
