Avatar n tn Hello~ My OBGYN suggested to take 5 mg Medroxyprogesterone 5 mg x 7 days to induce menstruation. I am 49 years old in pre-menopause. I have not had a period and am starting my 7th month of no period. I really dislike any type of pills, but my doctor said, I should take this med every three months if I do not have a period, to shed my uterine lining, until I am through with menopause. I do smoke sometimes, otherwise very healthy, and am afraid of the side effects.

1855970 tn?1325827213 The doctor started me on medroxyprogesterone last month. I took 10mg tabs for 10 days, got my period 4 days later with some cramping. This month I got my period two days after stopping the med. Days 2-4 were very heavy with clotting. Today is day 6 and I thought it was nearly over, but I went to the bathroom, I wiped and the toilet paper was solid bright red blood with a big clot. I've also had extreme cramping today as well. What could this mean? I'm really scared!
Avatar m tn So my gynecologist put me on provera/ medroxyprogesterone 10 mg which I take every day. She put me on it to stop my periods so I don't lose anymore iron. I'd like to know what other people's experiences r w this medication and should I expect to get a period or not?
1855970 tn?1325827213 I went to the doctor and she prescribed me Provera (Medroxyprogesterone). I took it for 10 days, then 3 days after I stopped, I got my 'period'. It was light for the first 2 days, 3rd day was normal, now today (day 4) its heavy and I have huge clots coming out too. Its kind of scary because I've never had this happen before. This morning I felt something come out, so I went to the bathroom and pulled my pants down and there was a clot the size of a ping pong ball on the pad.
Avatar f tn PROVERA IS NOT A BIRTH CONTROL Provera 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 f tn Estrogen and progesterone are responsible for the cyclical changes in the endometrium (uterine lining), including menstruation. In addition, a woman’s genital tract should be free of any abnormalities to allow the passage of menstrual blood Why is Provera prescribed? Provera is derived from the female hormone progesterone. You may be given Provera if your menstrual periods have stopped or a female hormone imbalance is causing your uterus to bleed abnormally.
Avatar n tn My doctor prescribed provera 10mg to stop my period. I have norplant which is another contraceptive (implant) the bleeding has not stopped instead it's getting worse and i have exceeded my normal days. it looks like it's about to stop then starts again. I have only taken 3 pills what happens if I stop without taking all the 10 pills.
Avatar n tn He told me to continue taking progestron suppository because PG is not accurate. He also stated that progesteron doesn't cause any delayed menstruation. Hmm...should I stop taking progesterone suppository or should I listen to the doctor? I'm so stressed now...please advice!
622208 tn?1222549040 My regular doctor referred me to the OBGYN because of the ultrasound and lack of menstruation/irregular bleeding. The OB checked my hormone levels and insulin levels to see if I had PCOS. My hormone levels are normal. My insulin levels are normal. She has ruled out PCOS. She has ruled out menopause. I've been taking progesterone for 6 days and nothing has happened. I'm supposed to take it for 10 days.
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 took medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10 days,i start my period 2 weeks after my last pill
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 The old gynecologist I went to years ago, put me on medroxyprogesterone, apparently I had been prescribed to high a dosage which caused me to faint, and I do not care to try it again. Yet this put aside, I know many other people on this medroxyprogesterone prescription and it does works wonders for them.
