Common Questions and Answers about Medroxyprogesterone to stop bleeding


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?

2051102 tn?1330321233 Medroxyprogesterone is used to treat abnormal menstruation (periods) or irregular vaginal bleeding. Medroxyprogesterone is also used to bring on a normal menstrual cycle in women who menstruated normally in the past but have not menstruated for at least 6 months and who are not pregnant or undergoing menopause (change of life).
Avatar f tn i used it for five days only 10 mg, after 4 days my first AF arrived. then after 20 days AF arrived again then i used provera to stop the bleeding. right now im using it for 16 days my doctor told me that my AF will arrive may 25th. then i will take clomid... by the way my cycle is regular but now im in hormonal imbalance...
Avatar f tn Can someone switch from Medroxyprogesterone to Prometrium. My girlfriend takes the Prometrium every day instead of Medroxyprogesterone for 10 days. I would like to use something natural instead of synthetic.
Avatar f tn got prescribed medroxyprogesterone 10mg to stop my bleeding of 2months. how long does it take to work? I been taking it for 3days and still heavy bleeding.
20811884 tn?1518853698 You may have an ongoing imbalance that needs a longer term solution than a 10 day progesterone pill. My mother, unfortunately, had to take medication permanently to keep herself from bleeding non stop. What a pain! Hope that is not the case for you but since you immediately start bleeding again and heavily, I would in all sincerity go right back to the doctor and say this is unacceptable.
Avatar n tn I have been going crazy trying to find out how to stop the bleeding myself but there really seems to be no way of controlling this. I have read if you take Ibuprofen for 10 days or if you get your next shot earlier then you are scheduled, or if you start on the pill. I have tried the Ibuprofen I have been taking 1000m a day and it has been 6 days now it has not stop, so I'm thinking of just riding it out and let it get out of my system on its own.

Avatar f tn It has been 6 months and I am always fatigued and plagued by terrible cramps that also won't stop. She told me that if it doesn't stop I'll have to explore another treatment option. I'm only 19 and don't know what to do.. if anybody can help that would be amazing.
Avatar f tn My doc ended up putting me on bc to stop the bleeding I took it for a month after I finished them I finally got a normal period then got pregnant that cycle but I miscarried that one too....
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 f tn I was put on another hormone medroxyprogesterone which is supposed to stop the bleeding. It seems that after I take it in the evening, it does seem to slow me down. The problem occurs after taking my Levothyroxine again in the morning. I get very heavy bleeding again. Can I take both in the morning? Maybe one will balance the other. So far the bleeding doesn't want to give up. I do also have at least 1 fibroid & just had an ultrasound. The doctors think I'm in perimenopause.
Avatar f tn It also causes irregular bleeding or spotting, heavy or prolonged bleeding, or your menstrual bleeds to stop altogether. Since you have been having menstrual bleeding that is heavy or prolonged you should inform your doctor. This is merely an advice and not a substitute of clinical examination. Consult your attending doctor. Take care!
Avatar f tn Can I stop taking provera and start combination OC pills to stop the bleeding ? will it help me..I am having lot of tiredness and fatigue due to bleeding so long ..please advise and help me..thanks much!
Avatar n tn It also causes irregular bleeding or spotting, heavy or prolonged bleeding, or your menstrual bleeds to stop altogether. It is quite effective in preventing pregnancy. This is merely an advice and not a substitute of clinical examination. Consult your attending doctor. Take care!
Avatar n tn from exeperience you just have to wait it out because chances are your body is trying to get you back into a normal cycle and if you havent bleed in over a year then you must have alot of built up tissue so it may be normal i would go to the doctor and make sure u have lab work done to make sure ur iron is up
Avatar n tn I had a case of a non-stop peroid for four weeks, so i went to the dr and he put me on 10mg of medroxyprogesterone for 5 days and then to start taken brithcontrol after i started bleeding again. He also said that if i did not starte bleeding again on that sunday that i should wait till this sunday to start taken the brith control. So, i started the brith control today, but im woundering how long will it be before i stop bleeding?
619484 tn?1223432538 Ferralet90, TandemF, Repliva... and put me on Medroxyprogesterone (to stop the bleeding). He said 2 iron pills a day and 2 of the other a day. He did a pap smear and an endometrial biopsy, took 3 tubes of blood and said we have to get my blood count back up and go from there to see what actually is wrong. We scheduled a mammogram and I'm going back to see him next week.
1855970 tn?1325827213 I have been taking Medroxyprogesterone (Provera) for 11 months now to induce my period each month. I take 10mg days 16-26 each month. I usually get my period 2-5 days after i stop the medicine. This month however, its day 11 and still no period. For the past week or so I have been experiencing very painful/sensitive nipples, slight abdominal cramping, excessive tiredness, headaches, and nausea.
Avatar f tn he p[rescribed me medroxyprogesterone to take for 5 days and that would bring me period one which should stop the non stop bleeding. well after taking the medroxyprogesterone for 5 days, 2 days after finishing it, i got my period (a heavier one) passed that through for the 6 days and it stopped again. exactly 9 days later the light bleeding/spotting started again and it hasent stopped since.
Avatar m tn Suggested taking Medroxyprogesterone to stop my period and take it for 3 weeks then stop so that it helps to regulate my cycle. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thankyou.
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 I took them for about 2 weeks to stop the bleeding (from 9/10 to 9/20 and I missed a day or two). One of the other doctors in the practice told me to stop taking them around 9/25. I should have started my period on 10/4. It's 10/14 (day 40) and still no period. I have pregnancy symptoms and mild lower abdominal cramping, but still no bleeding. I took an at home test when I was 6 days late and it came back negative, but I am still having symptoms. I think that I am pregnant....
Avatar m tn So my gynecologist put me on provera/ medroxyprogesterone 10 mg which I take every day. She put me on it to stop my periods so I don't lose anymore iron. I'd like to know what other people's experiences r w this medication and should I expect to get a period or not?
Avatar n tn Five days after I started the medroxyprogesterone, I had another attack at work, but was able to quiet myself down enough to drive home, and didn't get back to feeling normal until mid-morning the next day. During my previous years on hormone therapy, I did notice that about 3 days after starting the medroxyprogesterone each month, the hot flashes would come back and I would several times awaken in the middle of the night or in the morning with the feeling that I could not breathe enough air.
Avatar f tn How can I get them to pay for a hysterectomy? Or if you have some advice on how to stop this that would be awesome as well. If anyone includes the word "normal" I might cry.
Avatar f tn I to have bleed for 25+ days, and my doc would give me Medroxyprogesterone for 3 wks to stop the bleeding. Do you have an underline problem? Like PCOS? Have they checked for cysts? Bloodwork to check hormones? Periods for some can take a couple of years in order to get regulated, while some just go right into coming like clockwork. I would see the docs and let them know that you are concern and if they maybe can put you on birthcontrol to start getting it regulated....
Avatar f tn ( which is about a year since my last period) So my doctor gave me provera (medroxyprogesterone) to take for 10 days to induce a period. I finally got my period a week later and I am on my 6th day now. I called n asked a nurse at my dr office 2 see if i could count spotting as CD 1 & she said it wouldnt matter if i counted it as day 1 or the day a blood red period came as cd1 so I decided to go w/ counting the day a blood red period came as cd1 so in saying that..
