Medroxyprogesterone for amenorrhea

Common Questions and Answers about Medroxyprogesterone for amenorrhea


Avatar f tn I think it would depend on the reason why you're actually taking it. I know it's used for amenorrhea and endometriosis, and that if you do become pregnant on it you need to stop immediately. Your doctor would be the only one who could really give you the answers you need since he's the one who prescribed it.
Avatar f tn is it possible to get pregnant after taking the medication medroxyprogesterone? are my chances to conceive higher because of this medication?
Avatar n tn I am 20 years old and have not had a period for almost a year. I have seen a doctor about this and have been tested for many things including thyroid disorders, pituitary problems genetic tests and hormone imbalances. I have somewhat low estrogen (29) for my age and somewhat high FSH (18). I do not have any other issues than these either. I don't know if this will definitely lead me to early menopause and other health problems or if not having a period really isn't that big of a deal.
Avatar f tn Hi! Congratulations! The most common reason for amenorrhea is pregnancy! Your doctor should remember that! The medroxyprogesterone acetate is harmless. It is not something we would normally prescribe on purpose for a pregnant woman, but it won't harm the baby. I don't think it will work either! It may be awhile before you have your period again--nine months! Good luck!
Avatar n tn Dear mjay, I did some checking regarding dosing of medroxyprogesterone for treatment of hot flashes. After some amount of investigation the information was that 10mg pill daily was the recommended dose. The idea being to use the lowest amount of the medication to take care of the symptom. You should know that the resources quoting the studies of its use for treatment of hot flashes are from 1980 and 1981 journals. There could be more up to date findings but I did not come across any.
Avatar n tn I am ttc i am 38 have 2 children already they diagnosed me with amenorrhea. I was prescribed MEDROXYPROGESTERONE 10 MG I took that for 10 days finishing on 11/23. Today I had some light bleeding. Can I still ovulate if missed my period.
Avatar n tn Secondary amenorrhea is when a woman who has had normal menstrual cycles stops getting her monthly period for 3 or more months. 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.
Avatar m tn He also told me that he hears me breathing heavily during these shaking episodes, and that they occur as he is getting ready for work (he goes to work very early in the morning, typically around 4 to 6 am). I have absolutely no memory of this, and do not wake up until several hours later.
Avatar f tn SWEETY THAT IS BECAUSE PROVERA IS USED TO GET YOU TO START BLEEDING NOT STOP. PROVERA IS USED FOR TREATMENT OF AMENORRHEA Amenorrhea is the absence of menstrual bleeding and may be primary or secondary. •Primary amenorrhea is the absence of menstrual bleeding and secondary sexual characteristics (for example, breast development and pubic hair) in a girl by age 14 years or the absence of menstrual bleeding with normal development of secondary sexual characteristics in a girl by age 16 years.
Avatar f tn It contains no estrogen, thus making it suitable for women who cannot or will not take estrogen products. It also is safe for breastfeeding mothers. Disadvantages Disruption of the menstrual cycle to eventual amenorrhea occurs in 50% of women within the first year. Persistent irregular bleeding can be treated by administering the subsequent dose earlier or by prescribing temporary low-dose estrogen therapy.
Avatar n tn Its been almost 5 days since I took my last Provera pill and still no period. For those of you that have taken Provera- how long did it take for your periods to start? I am starting to worry so I took a pregancy test and there was an EVER SO SLIGHT second line. It really depended on how you held it up to the light though. I took another one immediately after and there was no second line.
Avatar n tn i have a 10 yr old , after i had him i went on the depo shot for 3 months and had to stop it because it made me so sick but it also took usalmost 6 months to concieve our son, so no 10 years later no other children and not from lack of trying...
Avatar n tn Hello, I have been on Yasmin for 6 months. I have stopped because my husband and I are considering having another baby. Well, I decided to search for some info. in regards to stopping yasmin and came across a message forum. (not this one) Okay, now, my concern is the effcts after STOPPING yasmin. I understand that all bc pills are different and so are we women as far as side effects go.
Avatar n tn Thank you so much for your response. At least now I don't feel like I'm going crazy. My period now is 21 days late with no bleeding, spotting or anything, but these test keep saying negative. I guess I'll wait it out and let another month or so go by and see what happens. Again, thanks for your response.
