Avatar m tn 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. Does this mean i have cancer because it isnt working?
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 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.
2051102 tn?1330321233 Hummm ... I have only taken one round of the Medroxyprogesterone (10 days to "jump start" my period) and 9 days after I took the last pill ... I got my period. I was "freaking out" too ... even though my husband and I use another form of birth control. Prior to that ... it had been 3 months since I had my period. Wondering if you have subsided in the side effects ...
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!
873416 tn?1250338946 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.
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.
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 n tn Now, in April I have been since April 13 bleeding from spotting to light and was put on Medroxyprogesterone April 30 - May 9th today is the 12th and I am bleeding heavy .. I was told to start the Lysteda I originally and preferred to take . Why didnt my period stop ? I thought that was the whole thing with Medroxyprogesterone. Now I have to have a biopsy and blood work . What if it doesnt stop will this medicine be used again ?
2051102 tn?1330321233 MY NEXT SET OF MEDICATION IS TO START APRIL 1 FOR 10 DAYS. I WAS WONDERING IF AND WHILE I AM TAKING THIS MEDICATION WILL I START MY PERIOD OR WILL I START A FEW DAYS AFTER. I REALLY HOPE THESE PILLS WORK CAUSE I CANT STAND HAVING THESE LONG PERIODS. I'VE NEVER BEEN THROUGH THIS, SO CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME OUT. I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.
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 n tn I know that it is supposed to mean you are pregnant if you don't start your period after a round of it, but I have been infertile for years and... let's just say that the chances of me getting pregnant are very few and far between... What I would like to know is there any other reason why I would not be getting a period after a round of medorxyprogesterone - besides being pregnant? Has this happened to anyone else?
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 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!
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 f tn I tried Glucophage but that didn't work. It's been just over a year since my last period so my doctor prescribed Provera to start my period then Clomid. I took the Provera as prescribed for 10 days. It's been 6 days since I stopped and still no period. All of the information I've read says it should take 3-7 days so I haven't called my doctor yet. Has anyone else had this experience. I'm getting a bit worried that this is more serious than my doctor originally thought.
Avatar n tn she said for me to start on the day i get my period... but i hadnt gotten my period that month yet.... i got it on september 10th and it was october 22 when i went for the doctor app.. so my period was ten days late..she took a urine sample and i wasnt preganant which i could have told her..anyways she gave me the pills to take for seven days.. i took my last one on october 28th..ts now november 2 and my period still hasnt come yet..
777396 tn?1329791151 on about day 23 because it takes 5 days for my period to start after taking it. With this dose I don't have such extreme side effects. Oh and she did tell me it is dangerous if you are pregnant...so every month before I take, it I do take an HPT first just in case...even though I have never been pregnant. Sorry I know this is long and kind of me ranting...but I have been on this med constantly since like sept 07 and it does work as far as my cycle but nothing else...

Avatar f tn My doctor wants me to take another test and if it's negative start the medicine again. I'm scared to start it just in case I'm pregnant. Anyone's been through this before I would love to hear what was your results and any advice would be great. Thanks!!!
16221027 tn?1446217790 I'm not sure when the best time for me to start haveing unprotected sex after my period. but I am wondering if i should be starting my period soon or not? i've looked up all sorts of different questions and answers but still haven't found the right answers i'm looking for. Also we at one time were trying to have a kid, but now it's if it happends it happends. I didn't want to take birth control to regulate periods, so my OBGYN decided to put me on this.
Avatar f tn Hello All, It's been Six days since my last medroxyprogesterone (provera) pill and I'm waitinf for AF to show and nothing! So of course her I go with the worrying. I have PCOS so the chances of me being pregnant right now without the Clomid Metformin and Medroxyprogesterone is slim to none as I haven't had a cycle since July of Last year.
Avatar n tn I took medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10 days,i start my period 2 weeks after my last pill
Avatar n tn Hi, I had my period at the end of April after being on medroxyprogesterone. 3 days after taking the last pill my period started. It lasted 5 days. Kinda heavy and clotty. I was also on birth control pills to regulate my period , my first bcp was started the day I started my period. I stopped taking the pills because they were making me sick and I was crying for crazy reasons and having thoughts of dying.My last bcp was 5 days after period. So that would be the 10th.
Avatar m tn My OB prescribed me Medroxyprogesterone and advised me to take it if I went longer than 3 months without a period. I took my first course of the meds in early April of 2016 and got my period right after my last dose. Had a period in May with no help, missed June and July so I Started my Medroxyprogesterone again in August and started my period later that same month. Missed September, but as of October and without needing the medroxyprogesterone I have been getting my period every month.
Avatar n tn I continue to take the iron pills daily, however I stop taking the chasteberry when my period stops though continue to take the iron. So now whenever my period wont start or is continuous I will start up the chasteberry again. Check it out ladies! http://www.aafp.org/afp/20050901/821.
Avatar n tn I have been on my period for 11 days now. I took Medroxyp Ac 10mg. I was prescribed 5 pills to take 5 days in a row. I took 2 of them 2 days in a row skipped a day and took 2 of them 2 days in a row and didn't take the 5th pill. Would this have something to do with why I am going on 12 days tomorrow being on my period?! I took the pills the prior months correctly like directed and my periods were normal (5-7days).
Avatar n tn He also told me to wait until my first period before trying to conceive again. I too have had period like symptoms, but no bleeding yet. Hopefully I start my period soon. Hope this helps and sorry for your loss.
