Common Questions and Answers about Medroxyprogesterone to induce menstruation


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.
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 If I get my period after this, do I start to ovulate normally again or is Provera just to induce your period and have nothing to do with ovulation?
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor she said after stopping BC pills it could take this long she told me to wait about another month!! And that they usually don't start checking things out until i haven't gotten one for 6 months!
Avatar n tn I am supposed to start my period this coming weekend and this past Saturday I had some very light pink discharge. No pain or anything to make me thik it would be a bladder infection or a UTI. I also have had extremely sore breasts. The nipple doesn't hurt but right under it hurts really bad. My face is breaking out which is never a problem for me. I have had heavy discharge (clear, mucus-like) for the past 4 days.
280700 tn?1210287416 I've been put on Norethisterone 3 times a day for ten days to induce a bleed. On days 2 - 6 of my bleed I have to take 100mg of Clomid (Clomifene) and on day 21 I have to have a blood test to detect ovulation etc. I've been given enough for 3 cycles, and have to carry on with the Glucophage as well, and should I be lucky and fall pregnant I have to carry on with the Gluco for 8 weeks and steadily wean off of them. Nervous, excited, scared, hopeful. Would really appreciate some correspondence.
Avatar n tn I did a home test and it's still negative! I do not know what to do--I am afraid if I go to the doctor he will say we should induce my period. I've missed two periods now. Thank you sooo much!
318181 tn?1336447096 As many of you know, we've had family in town for the past 16 days, and then my husband was laid off in the middle of their visit, which forced us to make a decision whether or not to continue with the IVF. We have decided to go ahead with it, since insurance wouldn't have covered it anyway...and my DH has a temporary contracting job at the moment, so hopefully everything will work out.
