Avatar f tn I just took my first dose 10 mg of Provera to induce a period i skipped 4 months in a row..... I'm scared after reading others experiences with the medication anyone ever take it?
777396 tn?1329791151 She is having me do some tests, but says that I more than likely have PCOS. She wants me to take Medroxyprogesterone (Provera) to get my periods regulated. I first wanted to know about side effects. Second I was reading that this particular drug is not recommended as it could cause some sort of pregnancy issue. Wasn't sure about if that was fact or myth. Any input is appreciated.
1855970 tn?1325827213 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... Then last night I woke up around 3am with lower abdominal pressure. I went to the bathroom (pee) and felt a little better. But this morning I still feel a little discomfort.
Avatar n tn Can I take another dose right away to make up? (Since most of the failed dose did make it in me, though not all of it) Or should I wait before retaking it and if so how long? I am almost at the end of my 13 weeks from the last dose.
Avatar f tn Can someone switch from Medroxyprogesterone to Prometrium. My girlfriend takes the Prometrium every day instead of Medroxyprogesterone for 10 days. I would like to use something natural instead of synthetic.
Avatar f tn Hello doctor, I am currently on CD67. My doctor prescribed me Medroxyprogesterone (Provera) to induce my menses. I took the first dose yesterday evening and this morning my basal body temperature sky rocketed, it is the highest ever. Does Provera have this quick effect on the body? I am asking this question as I am also hoping that I have ovulated on my own. I took my temp this morning the exact same time and same way I do everyday.
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 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 m tn How long after taking my 10 day dose of medroxypr ac 10mg tab do I start my birth control pills again? Do I need to wait until my period ends?

Avatar m tn My OB prescribed me Medroxyprogesterone and advised me to take it if I went longer than 3 months without a period. I took my first course of the meds in early April of 2016 and got my period right after my last dose. Had a period in May with no help, missed June and July so I Started my Medroxyprogesterone again in August and started my period later that same month. Missed September, but as of October and without needing the medroxyprogesterone I have been getting my period every month.
237300 tn?1231458318 She may be hesitant because its just been 6 weeks, may want to wait a bit to see if your period comes naturally. I waited just over 7 weeks post D&C to start the Provera. Dose can be 10mg provera for 5-10 days (I took mine for 10). You should have a period 3-7 days after the last provera dose, although many drs may want you to wait up to 14 days before doing further testing and/or trying the provera again.
Avatar f tn Well, today is CD 38, and I have been taking 10mg of Medroxyprogesterone for 7 days to induce a period. Well, I went to the RR today, and when I wiped, I noticed some mucus that looked exactly like egg whites. I tested it to see how stretchy it was, and it stretched about 2 inches. I am SO confused as to why I am seeing this. I should be getting my period any day now... Did I just ovulate? Is that why I'm seeing that kind of CM?

Avatar f tn I am not certain if you had any testing. My OB has me on..daily low dose asprin, 100X3 per day prometrium (progesterone supplement), fish oil and prenatal vitamins. I take all except the prometrium even while not pregnant (we plan to try again as soon as possible). I know it's hard, but stay strong and keep believing. I got to the point I never thought it would happen for me, yet here he is. It's scary but just take it one day at a time!
Avatar n tn I filled the script for Provera but asked for generic so I was given Medroxyprogesterone. I am on my 2nd day of a new pack of OrthoCept. Should I break the pills in pieces and take a 1/4 of it with my birth control pills? I just don't know what to do but doing what my doctor told me does not sit well with me. Thank you in advance!
Avatar f tn A subcutaneous version of the drug is now available (depo-subQ provera 104) that delivers a lower dose of medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) than does the intramuscular formulation (104 mg vs 150 mg). The subcutaneous route opens the possibility for home self-injections, and the lower dose could decrease suppression of pituitary function and ovarian estradiol production. Further study is needed. http://emedicine.medscape.
135691 tn?1271100723 Sorry to barge in here...but I have been following along with Becky regarding this issue. (difficult surgical menopause, age 49, surgery 6 months ago due to complex cysts, no ovca but very interested in this issue now as a result). I do question the safety of estrogen for us ALL. I noticed you said "...I would consider estrogen, low dose and without the addition of progesterone" and I wondered if you could perhaps expand on why no progesterone? Or are you referring to progestin?
Avatar f tn Hi I Had my last period on April 8 and around May 8 i was having a feeling that my periods were coming but they didn't and my doctor told me around May 5th that my progesterone level is high so i should be getting period any day but i didn't so on wed i started Medroxyprogesterone and i have taken 4 dose of 10mg and still no period but i keep having the feeling that i will get it but not as strong as May 8 and today is May 16 and still no period and clear discharge just like before or after per
1855970 tn?1325827213 I have taken provera (medroxyprogesterone) days 16-26 the past 3 months and I would get my period 2 days after my last dose. This month my boyfriend an I had sex of march 8, my period was 4 days later than usual. We didn't use protection. I've been feeling sick to my stomach, dizzy spells, extreme tiredness, general weakness. I did get my period and it started out very light... But I'm now on my 3rd heavy day with clots. I always have 2-3 heavy days with clots.
Avatar n tn It seemed to work for the first shot, then as I approached the end of the three months, light period started. Gyn upped dose to every 8 weeks instead of 12, and doubled the dose. Still had light occasional spotting, but am now passing large clots again. (sorry....icky, but necessary). The clots I have been told is a normal sign of high estrogen levels.
Avatar f tn I'm going to see if the dose needs to be changed. I take 0.5 mg of Estradiol and 2.5 mg of Medroxyprogesterone. Is that a small dose????
Avatar f tn As long as it is in your vagina for 20 minutes, you will have received the dose you need. No additional dose is needed. If the capsule falls out before 20 minutes, you may re-insert it or put in a new capsule.
143868 tn?1263932445 I spoke to my OBGYN and told her i am trying to get pregnant so she put me on medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10 days i got my period the last day of the dose. My period lasted about 5 days after that i had sex with hubby and now 9 days later i am having this light bleeding i dnt have cramps or anything and i really want to have a baby so is it possible that this is implantation bleeding? please help me i want to be a mommy really bad thnx.
Avatar f tn If you have overgrowth of endometrial tissue, that will have more to do with your odd menstrual issues than the synthroid, The Medroxyprogesterone is not a double whammy with the synthroid because synthroid is a thyroid hormone and progesterone is reproductive hormone - while all hormones must work together in the body, they each have a different function. Typically, side effects from Synthroid only last until your body has adjusted to having the hormones it's been doing without.
