Avatar f tn I was bleeding for 3 months straight and my obgyn put me on medroxyprogesterone to make it stop. I started it the day before I was predicted to ovulated. I have been off it over a week and was told when I stopped I should spot and then my period should come normally. I have been having unprotected sex and I am 3 days late on my period. I have no clue what is going on. My questions is has anyone taken this and had this problem?
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 n tn I was on the pills for 10 days (started them on the 4/17/07 I took my last pill on the 26 of April, every website that I've read says that your period is suppose to start 3 to 7 days after you take this pill. it has now been 9 days and still no period, I'm going to call my doctor on Monday and let her know of this, but meanwhile has any one ever had this happen and if so when did you period finally start or what could be the possible causes for this. All is help and any help is good help.
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 After not having a period for 10 months i finially went to an OBGYN. 6 days ago i was perscribed Medroxyprogesterone 10mg for 10days. i was having side effects so i decided to stop taking it. and it's been 2 days since the 5th dose. I've been having brown discharge and light cramping in my lower stomach. I'm not sure if this is even right? Or not. I'm also trying to eventually have a baby. i'm 18. i've been with my partner for almost a year. i've never really had regular period.
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 THE DOCTOR TOLD ME TO START ON THE FIRST OF MARCH AND TAKE IT FOR 10 DAYS. 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.
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 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 all my research says that i should have gotten it within three days after the last pill its been five days and stil no period.... idnt kno why...

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 Okay so i have a question, I haven't had a period for 10 months, and 7 days ago i was persribed Medroxyprogesterone to regulate my period. I had a slight side effect of dizzyness, and depression, so i quit taking the pill on day 5. i was perscribed 10mg for 10days by my OBGYN i stoped taking on day 5. i did take a pill on day 5. but i don't have a phone so i couldn't consult my doctor. all i know is i was really depressed for 2 1/2 days straight.
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 f tn From the day of my last pill it took 4 day to start spotting and then additional 2 days to have my official AF. I am going to ask my RE to start me on clomid for my next cycle. I am currently doing the OPK, but not sure if it will work (I'm on CD17). Good luck with the medroxyprogesterone pill. I had some horrible cramping, breast tenderness and mood swings. I'd worn your hubby in advance.
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 Well, on the 11th I had a light red to brown discharge, it slowly turned to blood. Last night I had to start putting a pad on. So my period is actually 2 weeks early. Is this normal? I shouldnt start till May 27th. My pap and pelvic exams were normal last month. Could it be because I went off the pill like I did?
Avatar n tn Hello, Medroxyprogesterone is usually given for only a few days in a row each month. You may need to start taking the medication on a certain day of your menstrual cycle and it is not safe to take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Since the bleeding has not stopped get it checked by your doctor and also get menorrhagia ruled out. Excessive amount or duration of menstrual flow, at more or less regular intervals is called menorrhagia.
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 had a complete miscarriage on December 25, 2007, bled until January 1, 2008 and have yet to start my period. My Gynocologist said to call him in the middle of February if I haven't started my period by then. 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.
Avatar n tn i was told to start it on day 16 of my cycle and stop upon getting my period. i heard it delays the period so i asked my dr how do i know when to stop then? he told me take it and two days after period expected take a preg test, if negative stop it and the period shoudl come. i too, am wondering how long it will arrive in.
