Medroxyprogesterone medication

Common Questions and Answers about Medroxyprogesterone medication


2051102 tn?1330321233 Hello all. I am wondering if its me or the medicine. I went back on the medication Medroxyprogesterone this month. I was on it in March and started my period as normal but instead of lasting 14 days it lasted 12. Last month I forgot that I was suppose to take the medication and as normal I started but one day early and again it lasted 12 days. I started on the 2nd of this month and my period was suppose to start on the 7th of this month, I am now 5 days late.
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've gone 6 months without getting it without being pregnant or anything like that. My doctor prescribed me Medroxyprogesterone about a week ago and told me to take it for 5 days until i get my period then start taking birth control once it starts. it's been about 8 days and i still havent gotten my period. she says that it you dont get your period for more than 3 months (without the medicine, naturally) then i have a great risk of uterus cancer.
16221027 tn?1446217790 6 days ago i was perscribed Medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10days. i was having side effects so i decided to stop taking it. and it's been 2 days since the 5th dose. I've been having brown discharge and light cramping in my lower stomach. I'm not sure if this is even right? Or not. I'm also trying to eventually have a baby. i'm 18. i've been with my partner for almost a year. i've never really had regular period.
Avatar f tn My D.O. just prescribed Medroxyprogesterone at my request; I had been on this before for PCOS, but I don't think it was prescribed to me in the correct way as I remember. The prescription is written to take 1 tablet(10mg) by mouth once daily. I don't think I am to take this every day for 30 days, so could you tell me what the correct dosage is for this problem and when do I begin taking it? Seems to me that I took it after I had a period for a period of 5 -10 days, I just can't remember.
2051102 tn?1330321233 I will be doing this for 6 months. Why is this medication prescribed? Medroxyprogesterone is used to treat abnormal menstruation (periods) or irregular vaginal bleeding. Medroxyprogesterone is also used to bring on a normal menstrual cycle in women who menstruated normally in the past but have not menstruated for at least 6 months and who are not pregnant or undergoing menopause (change of life).
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 is it possible to get pregnant after taking the medication medroxyprogesterone? are my chances to conceive higher because of this medication?
Avatar f tn Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you that the medroxyprogesterone acetate will probably help to bring on your period, but won't help you to ovulate and therefore won't help you to conceive. If you are trying for pregnancy and are not having cycles, you may need to start a medication such as Clomid or Femara--make sure your doctor knows that you want a baby and not just a period! Good luck!
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?
Avatar f tn I am 63 years old and 8 Years ago I stopped having periods and haven't had any problems with hot flashes or anything that goes along with menopause. I have never taken any hormones, but just this week my GYN prescrivbed Medroxyprogesterone 2.5 mgs to help keep something "down there" (uterus, endometrium???) from thickening. Do you know how much this would raise my chances of getting breast cancer?
1906894 tn?1321877167 Ive been on medroxyprogesterone for a wk already to hopefully regulate my period but my breast are very sore. I havent felt this soreness since i was pregnant. I know the soreness is normal but I also feel like my breast feel n look bigger. I barely fit a size 34b for over 3 yrs or so n now it fits a lil tight. Is this normal? Are my breast getting bigger? Does my age have something to do with it (20years old).
Avatar f tn It’s always been irreagular so my doctor prescribed MedroxyProgesterone. I have never had an issue with this medication. Till this month I took 20mg for 10days . July 4th-13. It’s been 13 days and nothing . I did call my doctor she said take a hpt, came back negative, I called and let her know so she said okay try again next week and than call me back with what the hpt says. I honestly have always thought I couldn’t have kids I don’t want to get my hopes up. But can anyone else gone thru this?
20811884 tn?1518853698 My menstrual cycle was completely irregular in which I had from January 3rd, 2018 to January 6th, 2018 and then started up again on January 11, 2018 and went through all the way until February 5th, 2018. The gynecologist prescribed me 10 pills of MedroxyProgesterone with a 10 day supply and only said that this would regulate my periods. However, the one thing the gynecologist failed to mention is that I would start up again between 24 to 72 hours of the last pill I had taken.
Avatar f tn Can you get pregnant while taking medroxyprogesterone?
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 m tn I was prescribed medroxyprogesterone on July 1st to stop my period, which is the opposite reason why many women take it, but I was told it works both ways. I've had my period for about a month and the medication hasn't seemed to help. I have days where it is really light and days where it can be heavy. The medication hasn't done anything in my opinion. I have also started taking birth control 4 days ago. I had this happen back in December 2013 and I was seen in the ED.
Avatar n tn I'm taking medroxyprogesterone to treat my irregular period and so far, I have just had one tablet. My doc. prescribed me for 5 days taking it and Im wondering how long does it takes me to bleeding after taking the medication?

Avatar f tn a few days later i took a pregnancy test and it came out positive. i was wondering if the medication will have any affect on the foetus. answers will be greatly appreciated. thank you.
Avatar f tn I got prescribed medroxyprogesterone 10mg to stop my bleeding of 2months. how long does it take to work? I been taking it for 3days and still heavy bleeding.
Avatar n tn The OBYGN said there's nothing wrong and to come back in the middle of July and he'll prescribe me some sort of medication to pretty much make it come. I went back last week Thursday and he gave me 7 days worth of Medroxyprogesterone and from what I understood of it, I was suppose to get ms. flow right after I finished the pills. I finished them on Wednesday the 25th and still no sign of A/F. Please help me.
706727 tn?1229096832 I was put on medroxyprogesterone to start my cycles again. I have been having regular cycles now 30 days exactly. But my only problem is that half way through my cycle I have brown spotting. Can anyone give me any advice??
Avatar m tn p.Glu429Ala (E429A) heterozygote. I have had 2 miscarriages over the past 2 years using no medication. Pregnancies only last 6 weeks. I seem to have trouble ovulating. My periods are not regular. They come as they please. It has been three years now and still no baby . I have been on Medroxyprogesterone 10mg and Clomid 50mg for a year with no luck of pregnancy. I feel that the Clomid stopped me from ovulating completely. I was just diagnosed with MTHFR. I have not talked to my doctor yet.
Avatar n tn I was wondering, has anyone has had a normal cycle on their own after miscarriage, when previously dependent on medication? If I don't get my period after 30 days, they want me to take a medication called Provera. Anyone familiar with this med? Thanks in advance.
427728 tn?1204233418 but ever since last year i've been getting irregular menses. I went to my OB and he perscribed me MedroxyProgesterone and clomid a couple times. After taking it a couple of times I got my menses naturally (without meds), which is really good. This year, January and February I had my menses but only slightly. It wasn't heavy as before. My first day of my last menses was on Feb. 5th 2008.

Avatar f tn 9) T3 Uptake - 25 (24 - 39) I have been going to the endocrinologist for 3 years and I've been put on every medication for the actual symptoms, except for the thyroid. My last labs were in April. T4, FD - 0.98 (0.82 - 1.77) TSH - 1.330 (0.450 - 4.500) I was very upset at my last visit because of the inability to lose weight, so they put me on an antidepressant. I have been on two exercise programs that the doctor has recommended.
