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?
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.

777396 tn?1329791151 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 m tn 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 If you were my patient, I would advise you that the medroxyprogesterone acetate will probably help to bring on your period, but won't help you to ovulate and therefore won't help you to conceive. If you are trying for pregnancy and are not having cycles, you may need to start a medication such as Clomid or Femara--make sure your doctor knows that you want a baby and not just a period! Good luck!
Avatar n tn this stuff usually makes my period come within 3 days! So, I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it is negative. 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...
Avatar f tn 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. I'm scared to start it just in case I'm pregnant. Anyone's been through this before I would love to hear what was your results and any advice would be great. Thanks!!!
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 I have had 1 successful pregnancy which was over 10 yrs ago I have now been diagnosed with pcos and have been put on medroxyprogesterone(provera) 10mg/10days and metformin 500mg/3x since I'm ttc. So I took my medroxy this month and it is now day 5 and no cycle also the last 4 days my nipples have been really sensitive and tender. All the other times that I've taken the medroxy I got my cycle 3days after my last dose. So could I possibly be pregnant?
Avatar f tn if there was any concern that you were pregnant you shouldnt be taking these pills till you are certain you are not pregnant...
Avatar f tn At that point, I would probably check a pregnancy test (you may want to do that now!) and go ahead with the Clomid if it was negative. Good luck!
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 Hello, Get your serum HCG levels checked to rule out any pregnancy as medroxyprogesterone has been assigned to pregnancy category X by the FDA.. Animal studies have revealed evidence of teratogenicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy but is contraindicated in pregnancy. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

Avatar n tn When I got the positive on the digital pregnancy test, we went and had blood work done, and a sonogram, and I was told my thyroid was fine and that I was not pregnant. My husband and I were worried b/c I never have a regular period and can go months without one, and asked the doctor why I did not have one, and that's when the doctor said that she was going to put me on Provera. The pharmacy gave me Medroxyprogesterone which I know as the generic version of Provera.
Avatar f tn A progesterone preparation in last half of cycle is given to regularize the cycle and increase chances of pregnancy. If you have doubts and concerns then please consult your gynecologist. If you have trouble conceiving, then you may need more tests. If you have irregular cycle, then also other causes like PCOD need to be ruled out. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hello All, It's been Six days since my last medroxyprogesterone (provera) pill and I'm waitinf for AF to show and nothing! So of course her I go with the worrying. I have PCOS so the chances of me being pregnant right now without the Clomid Metformin and Medroxyprogesterone is slim to none as I haven't had a cycle since July of Last year.
170623 tn?1242667663 Progesterone can be measured to determine whether or not a woman has ovulated, to determine when ovulation occurred, and to monitor the success of induced ovulation. In early pregnancy, progesterone measurements may be used, along with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) testing, to help diagnose an ectopic or failing pregnancy (progesterone levels will be lower than expected), although this will not differentiate between the two conditions.
Avatar n tn Well this past December just a few days before Christmas I had noticed something was off so after a lot of convincing from my mother I went and got a pregnancy test and turns out I was pregnant. I honestly thought it would never happen but I got my Christmas miracle. I'm 36 weeks tomorrow with a healthy baby boy. I'm sorry this is so long but it will happen you just go to stay positive and it always happens when you least expect it. Good luck and sending you baby dust!

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 n tn I've taken 5 pregnancy tests and all negative. I've been pregnant before and I know the symptoms. Well I seem to have all those symptoms but I'm extremely baffled by why 5 negative hpt tests. I honestly could not wait any longer so on Friday I went to get a blood test and I get the results on Tuesday. I was just wondering if anybody has ever taken 5 hpt tests and all negative but still came out pregnant?

Avatar n tn Due to my irregular cycle, my gynae put me on a 10 day course of medroxyprogesterone 10 mg,a substitute for provera. I have completed the course day before yesterday and have not had my periods yet but my breasts are sore and i am too nauseated. Is it possible for me to get pregnant during this course as my hubby and me had unprotected sex like thrice in these 10 days! And I have no children yet! Please help!
