Avatar f tn Hello, I am taking Medroxyprogesterone also. I took it for 10 days and 3-4 days later spotting occured, then 2 days after AF arrived. The way I took it was before I went to bed. I've heard it has some bad effects, which was the case the first round. I did see my doctor during the first round of taking (for other reasons) and casually said that "yesterday was the last day" and she had mentioned that AF would come within 10 days.
2051102 tn?1330321233 I had intercourse Sunday night and woke up monday morning with spotting which would be day number 11. Do I add that day also? I am really wondering if anyone is going through this cause this is really freaking me out. I am just too concerned.
Avatar f tn hello, my dr proscribed me medroxyptogesterone because i haven't gotten my period after having my first child 18 months ago so last month i took medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10 days, on the 11th day had a light period for about 5 days. now it is a month later and i woke up this morning this another period or could i be pregnant?
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 n tn Now I hadn't taken my medicine for my thyroid in months, b/c I was trying to boost my metabolism naturally by exercising, and I had a period and spotting during the months not on the medication. 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.

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.

Avatar m tn I was prescribed medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 3 months because I was starting to bleed daily sometimes with clots sometimes just old spotting (brown discharge)and the medicine stopped the bleeding right away, in fact the very next day. I'm worried because I haven't had a regular menstrual cycle in almost 2 months.
Avatar n tn The problem is i started spotting and cramping last night and today actually had to use a tampon. It is a very drk brown and thick color no abnormal odor. But strong cramping, i get a headach and nausea right before i start and it brought me home from work. Should i be concerned and contact my dr a out this or just wait until monday for my sonogram. I feel better this evening but have been abnormally tired and my blood test came back not anemic. Just need advice. I am still cramping.
Avatar n tn Depo-Provera injection contains the active ingredient medroxyprogesterone acetate. It disrupts the menstrual cycle. It also causes irregular bleeding or spotting, heavy or prolonged bleeding, or your menstrual bleeds to stop altogether. It is quite effective in preventing pregnancy. This is merely an advice and not a substitute of clinical examination. Consult your attending doctor. Take care!
Avatar f tn Years ago when I was taking Levothyroxine I also had very, very heavy bleeding and would sometimes bleed the way you described (off and on, weeks at a time, and very heavy). I have no idea if it was connected to the Levothyroxine or not. It didn't happen all the time but there was a period of time it was happening. It could be any number of things that are causing it.
1855970 tn?1325827213 I have been taking Medroxyprogesterone (Provera) for 11 months now to induce my period each month. I take 10mg days 16-26 each month. I usually get my period 2-5 days after i stop the medicine. This month however, its day 11 and still no period. For the past week or so I have been experiencing very painful/sensitive nipples, slight abdominal cramping, excessive tiredness, headaches, and nausea.

Avatar f tn But there was 1 time that I had a period for 3 mo straight and it was very heavy!!! I had to take Loestrin 3 times/day for a week to stop my period & I havent had one since then. ( which is about a year since my last period) So my doctor gave me provera (medroxyprogesterone) to take for 10 days to induce a period. I finally got my period a week later and I am on my 6th day now.

If I'm not pregnant so what is going on. please help me with an answer.
Avatar m tn I don't personally have any experience with progesterone. My mom took it as she had all cycle bleeding and spotting. It curtailed that and as soon as she stopped taking it, she started spotting/bleeding again every day of her cycle. It is my understanding that if you take it daily, you will be stopping the lining of your uterus from thickening which is what sheds during menstruation. So, periods may not happen. I'd speak to your doctor.
Avatar m tn Hi, I had my Mirena IUD removed on February 27 and the next day I started to bleed like a regular period. It has been 7 days and I am still bleeding. The problem is I was bleeding and spotting since Feb. 3. My Flow is Now Quite heavy. Has anyone else had this problem? My Dr. Suggested taking Medroxyprogesterone to stop my period and take it for 3 weeks then stop so that it helps to regulate my cycle. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thankyou.
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 Hi May_be, I went 8 weeks without my period and blood and urine kept coming out negative, and the day before missing my second period, I started spotting and later on that day, it started flowing like a river. So, just give it a bit more time and if it still doesn't start that second month, go get tested again. Sometimes your body tend to skip a month, for different reasons. I just knew I was pregnant, but it crept up on me soon as I was getting ready to miss the second month.
Avatar n tn for example last cycle was 54 days and my OB told me that was an indication that I did not ovulate that month, and even with the Provera it took me another 12 or 13 days after the last pill to get my period. Have you been on Provera (medroxyprogesterone) before? You should get your period 3-14 days after your last pill.
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.
349601 tn?1219809462 So i started taking them when he told me to, i got my period so me and my husband started ttc again...well about 4 dpo i started spotting, and a few days later i was getting sick and feeling light headed all the time and just wanted to lay down. 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.
