473883 tn?1322856638 Uterine thickening can be secondary to several conditions. These include endometrial cancer, myoma uteri, or secondary to oral contraceptive pills intake or depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (dmpa) injection. I agree with the plan of doing a repeat biopsy, hysteroscopy guided or dilatation and curettage. This will help determine the cause of the endometrial thickening.
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 n tn To get down to the nitty gritty--the problem is a lack of progesterone, and I would ask my patient to take some progesterone. Medroxyprogesterone Acetate should be available in most countries! I would also wonder whether my patient would like to go on oral contraceptives for cycle control--just for convenience. Good luck!
Avatar f tn My obs/gynae dr has put on pregnyl injections twice weekly,asprin and vitamins and has recommend I start provera medroxyprogesterone acetatae oral tabs 20mg x3 a day from week 5. I am a bit unsure about the provera due to some side effects? How did you find the prometrium I think its similar.

Avatar f tn Typically, this is achieved initially using hormonal contraception. This can also be accomplished with progestational agents (i.e., medroxyprogesterone), danazol, gestrinone, or gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists (GnRH), as well as other less well-known agents. These agents are generally used if oral contraceptives and NSAIDs are ineffective. GnRH can be combined with estrogen and progestogen (add-back therapy) without loss of efficacy but with fewer hypoestrogenic symptoms.
Avatar f tn The causes of abnormal uterine bleeding include endometrial cancer, myoma uteri, functioning ovarian tumor, adenomyosis, or secondary to oral contraceptive pills intake or depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (dmpa) injection. I agree with the plan of doing a biopsy, hysteroscopy guided or dilatation and curettage. This will help determine the cause of the endometrial thickening. Good luck.
Avatar n tn To re-hash (for those who aren't familiar with me), I had a (leaking) endometrioma removed in May, 06. Prior to surgery, I had been tried on two different types of oral BC pills, both mostly synthetic hormones. Needless to say, they did NOT work. The Yasmin turned me into a meanie, and the Seasonale not only made me an evil wacky b***, but I also had a light period for nearly two months.
Avatar m tn The medication that she takes to regulate her periods is probably Provera or Medroxyprogesterone Acetate. This medication will cause bleeding (sometimes heavy with clots) if the woman is not pregnant, and will not cause bleeding if she is pregnant -- it will not cause miscarriage. It is a good idea to use condoms whenever beginning a new relationship. Another form of birth control that your girlfriend might really like is the oral contraceptive pill.
Avatar f tn Luckily, there was no bowel obstruction today, but she did have a UTI that was initially treated with Levaquin to which she developed hives locally in the arm where the IV was, so that was DC'd and she was sent home on oral Macrodantin, which she has tolerated well in the past (she does have a long, distinguished list of meds to which she is allergic, lucky girl).
Avatar f tn I actually take nothing for the pain as it causes me to bleed. They are about to try some hormone oral pills to try and stop the bleeding because its getting me close to ovarian cancer they said by the time i hit menopause i will prob have cancer...
Avatar n tn Women who have a uterus, if given any type of estrogen, are also given a progestin (as combination therapy) because unopposed estrogen increases risk of endometrial cancer. For most women, risks of oral hormone therapy outweigh benefits. Benefits include reduction in hot flushes, night sweats (and consequent sleep disturbance), and vaginal dryness. Combination therapy decreases yearly incidence (per 10,000 women treated) of osteoporosis (from 15 to 10) and colorectal cancer (from 16 to 10).
Avatar n tn Implanon, depot medroxyprogesterone (DMPA) and Norplant used to prevent ovulation are well known for causing depressive moods and emotional lability, Stemetil is used for nausea and is related to medications used in psychiatry (phenothiazines) which cause very troublesome side effects; that is the reason you were given Cogentin. The effects of Implanon should wear off soon. Neither of these medication should have permanent consequences.
Avatar n tn These people I personally dealt with before, they helped my father get copayments paid back to him when he had out-of-pockets expenses for expensive oral chemo.treamtent he was receiving. I know another patient who is trying to go thru this program as well. They may have other avenues for people in your financial/insurance situation. I would get there phone number & speak to one of their counselors directly. This place was referred to my father from the oncologist he was seeing.
Avatar n tn IT WAS THOUGHT THAT DUE TO BACK PAIN HEAY MENSTRUAL CYCLE THAT I HAD FIBRIODS I WAS TESTED FOR THAT AND DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING IN MEAN WHIL I WAS TAKING MEDICINE CALLED MEDROXYPROGESTERONE WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO REGULATE CYCLE AND LET FLOW OF BLOOD BE NORMAL WELL I TOOK THIS MEDICATION FOR 12 DAYS WHILE TKNG IT MY NORMAL CYCLE WENT OFF AND I BLED FOR 2 WEEKS . I WAS CONCERNED AND STOP TAKING THE MEDICATION.
Avatar n tn Stopped a year back and periods started again as normal once a month for 5-7 days and with pain, then I stopped long term oral steriods in April this year, periods were fine then only last 1-2 days, then 10 days, then 1 day and now 3 weeks ahhh. I have been prescibed 200mg Utrogestan 3 times a day for days. Anyone else had this treatment? is it rough?
280700 tn?1210287416 TOOK ME OFF AND INSTEAD GAVE ME METFORMIN, AND MEDROXYPROGESTERONE DO YOU KNOW WHY?? I DIDN'T GET PREGNANT I WAS ON CLOMID AND MEDROXYPROGESTERONE AND I DIDN'T GET PREGNANT FOR ABOUT 3 MONTHS? I AM REALLY STRESSED OUT? ANY RECOMMENDATIONS?
Avatar n tn I've also been on the mini-pill and Provera, and both of them contained norethisterone/norethinderone acetate and medroxyprogesterone acetate, which were HORRID progesterones...they made me gain 10 lbs, my boobs were constantly sore, I felt depressed, etc. But not with Yaz! Maybe younger women should wait until they hit perimenopause to go on the pill. In any event, Yaz has been a total blessing in every way.
