Avatar f tn I have been on medroxy for 5 months, I was taking them for 15 days during the month from the 10th to the 25th of the month, the first 2 months went really well, no period, on the third month my period showed up, super heavy, so now I take them everyday, and again the first 2 months went well, no period, this is the third month and I have had my period for 3 weeks now, but for some reason it starts between 2am and 5 am lasts for about 4 hrs and then stops, only to start again the next day at th
Avatar n tn well I took it b/c my period stop and they did lab levels and my progesterone level was too low on day 10 the last day I was to take the pill I got my "period" well I basically bleed since it isn't really a period. My dr told me to give it 2wks and if nothing happened call them back and we would do they same thing again. It doesn't always work the first time and I have known people that it took another round.
Avatar n tn During your normal cycle your progesterone raises right before your period and that drop in levels causes the period. The medroxyprogesterone is just like that normal rise and drop. I hope this helps!
2051102 tn?1330321233 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.

16221027 tn?1446217790 but now i am starting this discharge, and i've done a little research saying that you normally discharge 1-2 days before you have your period. I'm hopeing i start having a normal period soon, so i can work on my ovulation and have a child. Maybe not in a month, maybe not in 5 months, but eventually. I'm hoping for good resutls. I don't want to have to go back to the doctor because i didn't have a period.
873416 tn?1250338946 I am currently on Day 4 of a 14 day therapy of medroxyprogesterone. I have been on BCP for 12 years and went off on 02/23/2009. 7 weeks later and no period I went to my doctor who put me on Provera to hopefully jump start my period. Once it comes I am to start charting for 3 cycles and then return for analysis. So once I start menses then I will start to track. That's why there is nothing on here yet.
Avatar m tn My girlfriend will start taking Medroxyprogesterone acetate, my question is if there’s a waiting period before we can start having sex without any other kind of contraception (like condoms or diaphragm) Thanks for the atention
Avatar f tn 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. Thank you.
Avatar f tn Hi guys, i'm new here. I was diagnosed with pcos just recently. I didn't have my period for 6-8 months now. I was afraid i will not be able to conceive:(.

Avatar m tn Hi I posted this under fertility and was advised to post it here - thanks in advance! I am 43 with irregular periods and my period stopped after June. 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.

Avatar f tn I finished a dose today and am anxiously awaiting a period as well. My last period was in may and none since. I had slight acne went away if you dont touch them, nausea and extremed mood swing. Today i am gettin cramping under stomach and back pains. It was not so bad for me as well as everyone is different. Its the price we have to pay to actually have a period, hoping me period goes back to normal so i wont have to take any more Provera or bc according to the doctor.
Avatar f tn 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 have been on 3 different rounds of provera and it didnt work I had all the signs of my period but no period has anyone had this happen if so what did you do
Avatar f tn hello, my dr proscribed me medroxyptogesterone because i haven't gotten my period after having my first child 18 months ago so last month i took medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10 days, on the 11th day had a light period for about 5 days. now it is a month later and i woke up this morning this another period or could i be pregnant?
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 My experience, I was given medroxyprogesterone to induce my period as well, and I didn't start bleeding until about 2-3 days after finishing the 10 days. However, this is my third time taking it, and I actually started bleeding about 8 days into it this time. So it may differ! It probably wouldn't hurt just to give your doctor a call though, and just tell them it hasn't worked and you feel nauseated. They should be able to take it from there. Good luck!
Avatar n tn After IVF and a loss. I have missed a period for the first time in my life. Doctor states it is due to age, I am 39. but I do not believe it. She put me on Medroxyprogesteron to induce a period that was aweek late and making more cramped and miserable. All it is doing is making me more bloated, more cramping in uterus and lower back. I am crying and miserable. My question is, is this normal and when should my period come?????
349601 tn?1219809462 I was perscribed Medroxyprogesterone 10 mg by my dr to help me start my period after missing it for 2 months and then to help me conceive. I did some research on the internet though and it said that it had been proven that this med causes birth defects.... should I really be taking this?? and shouldnt the dr have at least warned me about this affect? I want to get pregnant but I want a healthy baby.
Avatar n tn Hello All, On April 16, 2007 I was given Medroxyprosterone to help start my period becuase before then I hadn't had a period since February 17, 2007 and I infact thought that I had finally conceived, but to my non-surprise I hadn't. I made the doc's appointment and was prescibed thess meds. It is now May 4 and I still haven't gotten my period yet.

1855970 tn?1325827213 I explained how I've always had issues with my period. My last period was august 2011, and before that was december 2009. She didn't do a pelvic exam, because since I'm only 23, we could "wait another year". I'm kind of glad she didn't do one, but I feel like she should have. She prescribed me provera (medroxyprogesterone) to take the 16th through the 26th of each month. Within a week of stopping the hormone, I should get my period. Here's my problem, yesterday was my first dose...
777396 tn?1329791151 Hi ladies! I have PCOS as well, never have a period unless prescribed medroxyprogesterone, also don't ovulate. Recently went to a infertility specialist and he is putting me on medroxyprogesterone followed by clomid and femara. That is supposed to jump start the ovaries. Did the vaginal ultrasound that diagnosed me with PCOS, had an MI for my pituitary gland , and a lovey HSG test for the uterus and tubes had a mucous plug but that is about it for now. Keep you updated.
Avatar f tn Me and my fiance have been ttc for 3+ years now. I was prescribed medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10 days. I started taking this medicine on the first of March and had a regular cycle on the 19. I didn't take the medicine in April due to me being on antibiotics. I didn't have a period in April and haven't had one so far in May. I'm usually regular with my cycles being off a few days. I've never missed a whole month except for my pregnancy with my daughter.
