Avatar n tn my doctor prescribed me medroxyprogesterone 10mg tablets. i am to take 2 tablets 3 times a day for seven days that's a total of 60mg daily/. he said it is going to help with the irregular periods i have been having (every 1.5-2 weeks) my question is: is it safe to take that much daily? i have searched online to see if i can find something about someone taking that much but have found nothing.

Avatar f tn My doctor advised me to take MEDRIGEST 10mg (Medroxyprogesterone acetate tablets) from 15th day till 25th day (i.e. for 10 days). Many are saying that I will get periods after taking medrigest. Many are saying if i am pregnant in this duration then i will not get periods. I just want to know what this tablet does with regards to pregnancy? Will it make me get periods if the egg is not matured and make me not to get periods if the egg is matured,i.e if i am pregnant?
1557930 tn?1294636149 If your periods are irregular or have stopped completely and your doctor can find no obvious cause, it may be that something has upset your natural hormone levels. Medroxyprogesterone can help to restore your natural hormone levels, because it mimics the effects of your natural progesterone. Normally the level of progesterone in your blood increases about a week before your period.
1856888 tn?1325186544 If medroxyprogesterone is taken for 5 to 10 days each month at this time (ie day 16 to 21 of your cycle) it mimics the natural rise in your progesterone levels. This can help your other hormones to behave in a more normal way. To treat irregular periods this medicine is taken in this way for two menstrual cycles. To treat periods that have stopped it is taken for three menstrual cycles. In each case, a few days after you stop taking the tablets you should get your period.

Avatar n tn I do not mean to scare you, but I think it is important to note, that there is a reason that they stopped using medroxyprogesterone as a pregnancy test... one because there are faster ways, now... and secondly, because it can cause birth defects when taken early in pregnancy (specifically to the genital area). Given how little time you have been taking it, though, I would say that risk is very minimal, even if you are pregnant.

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 f tn the thing is i went to the docs office in mid feb he prescribed me to take medroxyprogesterone to elevate my hormones since they were still a little higher than usual which is common for women who have miscarried. after taking the meds i got a period again and that was when i had the 3 lucky days in the begining of marsh where i was blood free.
Avatar n tn 165lbs is about 75kg so the standard dose for a patient this weight would be 75mg. However, 5mg tablets are not available in all countries and it would be normal to prescribe 80mg to a patient weighing 75mg. Side effects are generally dose-related, but 5mg would not make a big difference. Accutane has many potential side effects but this must be balanced against the fact it is the most effective acne treatment available.
Avatar n tn For vaginal dryness or atrophy, topical forms of estrogen (eg, creams, vaginal tablets or rings) are as effective as oral forms. When estrogen cream is used, women with a uterus are also given a progestin.
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.
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.
