Common Questions and Answers about Medroxyprogesterone and weight loss


Avatar f tn At that point, I would then do some blood work including prolactin, thyroid, fsh and lh levels. I would also ask questions about weight loss and exercise. Stress can play a role in causing menstrual periods to stop temporarily too. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Causes of secondary amenorrhea include stress and anxiety, malnutrition, depression, overexercising, sudden weight loss or gain (obesity),thyroid disorders and hormonal imbalance due to polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS).Smoking is also associated with secondary amenorrhea. Sometimes tumors of the ovaries and brain may also cause absence of menstruation. Some of these causes are modifiable like if you are having stress then yoga and meditation and antianxiety medicines can help you out.

Avatar f tn They're going to go over blood work (hormones, A1C, the works) and talk about how the diet is working. I won't see dramatic weight loss in three weeks (or I would hope not, that would be scary) but we're hoping for about three pounds lost just by changing diet alone. I also have to check in with Katie to make sure the pills are working right.

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 Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Provera.
Avatar f tn Similar to the delay in fertility after discontinuation of DMPA, other adverse effects, such as weight gain, depression, and menstrual irregularities, may continue for as long as 1 year after the last injection. The FDA issued a "black-box" warning in November 2004, stating that bone loss from using Depo-Provera "may not be completely reversible" even after stopping the drug.
Avatar f tn My doctor says if eat less sugar and stop wasting calories on drinks, it will help with weight loss. Right now i only drink water, green tea (hot and cold) and seltzer. I buy heathly snacks and walk alot more. When I first started on the diet, i lost 13lbs easy. But then I stopped losing weight. So a friend on here suggested I take up walking. So started to walk about 30 mins a day and that started the weight coming off again. Good luck everybody!

Avatar n tn estratest from days 1-25 and medroxyprogesterone from days 16-25, each month. Five days after I started the medroxyprogesterone, I had another attack at work, but was able to quiet myself down enough to drive home, and didn't get back to feeling normal until mid-morning the next day.
Avatar n tn - anxiety, panic attacks, heart palpitations and fluttering - depression - excessive weight gain - hair loss *I already have a prob. with depression, anxiety and panic attacks, so I am currently on medication. (Will be weaned off if not good during the pregnancy - just wanted you to know I am thinking it all through:) *It is one thing to gain maybe 5 lbs. or to gain weight when pregnant.

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.
Avatar n tn i have to pluck them thin so i can take at least a week break before have to hassling with them again. i have had weight loss and gain. i've had headaches and gas and all sorts of crap. it makes me wonder if there is something wrong with the hormones being used in these pills or if there is something we are all being exposed to. have any of u guys used tanning beds?
Avatar n tn When I looked it up most of what I found described that as being brownish red and almost like a light period. This was a small ammount and light pink. I have been very much on emotional extremes so if I am not pg I know that my horomones are riding a roller coaster anyway. what do your other accronyms mean? I am new to this...
1340863 tn?1366644684 My stimulated cycles consist of Gonal-f injections along with Cetratide. I usually have the trigger injection on day 10. I put on weight and get fairly emotional. The Cetratide stings but other than that, I seem to handle them OK. My retreival is on day 13. Just waiting for AF to finally appear so I can start.
318181 tn?1336447096 I started lupron 20 units two days ago, and had my trial transfer and water sono that same day. I also got my protocol, and I will be on 3 repronex vials and 1 menopur vial a day once I start the stims. I'm a bit nervous about the whole thing, but also excited. I just REALLY hope it works! OK! Looks like I have a lot of catching up to do....I'll post again later once I've read through the posts on the old thread.
