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?
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 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. Do keep us posted. Take care and regards!

Avatar n tn My husband and I moved, and I had a positive on a pregnancy test. 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 n tn I took a blood pregnancy test on Mon. (you can refer to my thread posted on 9/10) that came out negative. It was early on - the day after I missed my period - but, I assumed it would be accurate since blood tests can detect pregnancy a week after conception. But, I also read that HCG levels don't rise early with some women, and it's best to re-test. But, does that apply to blood tests, too? It should have picked up at least something, being taken AFTER my missed period, right?
Avatar f tn My doctor told me it is normal for a woman to miss or be late at least once during there period life time. 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.
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!
Avatar f tn You may need regular follow ups and ultrasound during pregnancy to rule out any abnormality. Hope it helped. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn I got my period on august 3 and that was it- now it's oct.11 and i can't seem to get it- I took a pregnancy test and it was negative- i use condoms during sex so i don't think i'm pregnant, but i'm not sure. Does anyone have any insight as to why i'm going on 70 days with no period, I know your period can get out of whack from stopping the pill but it's been almost 6months!

Avatar n tn I do not mean to scare you, but I think it is important to note, that there is a reason that they stopped using medroxyprogesterone as a pregnancy test... one because there are faster ways, now... and secondly, because it can cause birth defects when taken early in pregnancy (specifically to the genital area). Given how little time you have been taking it, though, I would say that risk is very minimal, even if you are pregnant.
Avatar n tn The use of Medroxyprogesterone Acetate during the first four months of pregnancy is NOT recommended. There is an increased risk of minor birth defects in children whose mothers take this drug during the first 4 months of pregnancy.
Avatar m tn To me it sounds like she might have been pregnant, and had a misscarriage. I got pregnant in November of 2011, I had an ultrasound to confirm and everything was fine. But since the beggining I had low progesteron level. And it never raised, which ended up in me having a misscarriage. It was bad bad horrid cramps with a bad backaque and heavy bleeding, lots of blood came out and I passed a clot also, which was my baby. It was.the worst feeling you could ever have.
Avatar f tn But last year i had experianced 2 weeks of brown discharge and late periods that would be light. Since the month of may of last year it has become irregular and during december and january of this year i had taken hormone supplements called medroxyprogesterone, but it came with spotting inbetween cycles and early periods that were still light. Recently i had brownish and red spooting last month and a one light blood spot last week.
Avatar f tn well I never usually go past 25-26 days from the last day of my period. I am late and I went to the doctor and they did pregnancy test and it came back negative. I also took two hpt. I have had the normal symptoms right before my period arrives..sore breast, bloated tummy...but still not period. I had a little discharge but not a lot..so doc gave me antibiotics for it. I am to take 5 mg Medroxyprogesterone twice a day for 5 days.
Avatar m tn In sept of 2012, I went about two or three months without a period, continued to take pregnancy test and knew something wasn't normal with my cycle. My family Dr. Brushed my concern under the rug, I decided to call my OBGN and they ran tests bloodwork and an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed tiny mature follicle (meaning I didn't ovulate) and they just sit in there and confirmed PCOS. I was thrown off by this, went for a second opinion and the diagnosis was confirmed for the second time.
143868 tn?1263932445 Spotting that occurs in the middle of your cycle or spotting that occurs some ten to fourteen days prior to the start of the next cycle is normal too. This spotting may occur during ovulation. Seeing a spot of blood during ovulation is considered an excellent fertility sign. It is thought that mid-cycle spotting occurs for one of two reasons. First reason is possibly that when the egg bursts through the follicle, a little bleeding may occur.
Avatar f tn My question is why is my bleeding not stopping completely on provera although its been 2 weeks i started taking them and the bleeding is moderate during the dayt and light during the night, I am soaking 2 to 3 pads per day .. Can I stop taking provera and start combination OC pills to stop the bleeding ? will it help me..I am having lot of tiredness and fatigue due to bleeding so long ..please advise and help me..thanks much!
Avatar f tn The synthetic forms of progesterone - such as Medroxyprogesterone Acetate (Provera, Cycrin, Curretab) or Norethindrone Acetate (Norlutate) – should not be taken during your pregnancy. The progesterone that is in the birth control pill or Provera is man-made and may be related to bad side effects when taken during a pregnancy. These forms of progesterone should never be used whenever a woman may be pregnant. Does the FDA having any warnings for Progesterone? Yes.
Avatar f tn Pharmacologically active levels are achieved within 24 hours after injection, and serum concentrations of 1 ng/mL are maintained for 3 months. During the fifth or sixth month after injection, the levels decrease to 0.2 ng/mL, and they become undetectable by 7-9 months after injection. DMPA acts by the inhibition of ovulation with the suppression of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and LH levels and eliminates the LH surge. This results in a relative hypoestrogenic state.
Avatar f tn My co-worker has the same thing and she had a baby about 4 years ago. Everything was ok but her pregnancy was high risk and I hear this is very rare. I dont think she would have any problems.
622208 tn?1222549040 I have have had one pregnancy that was carried to full-term with a live birth fifteen years ago. Until recently, I have always had regular menstrual cycles every 28 days (except with pregnancy and when I took the Depo Provera shot for three years). I haven't had a period since July 5, but I have had vaginal discharge with blood and occasional "spotting." I have been experiencing severe fatigue for since May. I assumed I was starting menopause.
Avatar n tn I had a miscarriage in Sept05 and my periods have progressivly got longer and heavier. Ive been prescribed medroxyprogesterone acetate (provera) to regulate my periods,on days 15 to 25 of my cycle. Was told it would not interfer with my fertility but all info ive seen clearly states do not use if pregnant. I could get pregnant then take the provera as i wont know im pregnant til i miss my next period. Very anxious about any damage i could be doing, any one been in a similar situation??
Avatar n tn I am worried about the possibility of pregnancy. But with the depo I no longer have my periods so I don't know when would be the best time to take a pregnancy test if I feel I may be pregnant. Can someone give me advice?
Avatar f tn Glad I found this forum but I don't find similar cases like me. Basically I was dignosed with ectopic pregnancy, but I have different symtoms like others.
