Avatar n tn I am currently taking medroxyprogeterone to regulate my period. Can it stop me from becoming pregnant?
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 n tn well I took it b/c my period stop and they did lab levels and my progesterone level was too low on day 10 the last day I was to take the pill I got my "period" well I basically bleed since it isn't really a period. My dr told me to give it 2wks and if nothing happened call them back and we would do they same thing again. It doesn't always work the first time and I have known people that it took another round.
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 f tn I just got married on April 25th, and I was supposed to have my period around that time. I got the prescription from the doctor to take 10mg/day of MEDROXYPROGESTERONE ACETATE. However, since I started taking the medicine too late, 2 days after I took the medicine, I still had my period, so I stopped taking it. On May 13th, I had unprotected sex. My question is: is it safe to get pregnant within a month after taking 20mg of MEDROXYPROGESTERONE ACETATE? Many thanks!
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 THIS PILL IS ACTUALLY SUPPOSE TO REGULATE MY PERIOD TO NORMAL AND GIVE ME A REGULAR CYCLE. 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.
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 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 f tn If it is a full period, you can stop the Medroxyprogesterone. If it is spotting, continue taking it. Machelle M.
Avatar n tn I started taking that along with iron pills and did manage to get my period to stop! I took these two pills and did stop my period with no side effects. And no fainting occurred! 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 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 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.
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 m tn I was prescribed medroxyprogesterone on July 1st to stop my period, which is the opposite reason why many women take it, but I was told it works both ways. I've had my period for about a month and the medication hasn't seemed to help. I have days where it is really light and days where it can be heavy. The medication hasn't done anything in my opinion. I have also started taking birth control 4 days ago. I had this happen back in December 2013 and I was seen in the ED.
Avatar n tn 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. 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?
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 n tn After negative HCG test (pregnancy) after IVF implantation, I was told to stop progesterone inserts (Endometrine) had my period a few days after. Baby dust to you. Don't give up hope.
Avatar f tn If you were my patient, I would advise you that it can sometimes take up to 2 weeks after finishing medroxyprogesterone acetate for it to work. So, you may still have your period. If you don't have it within 2 weeks of finishing, you should probably call your doctor back. At that point, I would then do some blood work including prolactin, thyroid, fsh and lh levels. I would also ask questions about weight loss and exercise.
Avatar n tn hopefully you will not be like me, it took 12 weeks to get my period after my m/c.
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..
Avatar n tn i had a cyst removed a few months after my baby was born, it was the size of a softball, it was sitting on top of my right ovary, i wonder if that had anything to do with my missed period, i went for an appointment a month ago and they said my pituatary gland or how ever u spell it was imbalanced,what does that mean? they also said my ovaries were sleeping? wut couldve caused all this, i am only 19 turning 20 this august?
Avatar n tn hi, i have been on birth control and metformin and medroxyprogesterone, and they still didnt bring back my period, i had my baby in dec 02 and went on the needle in jan 03, and been on it since 05 and ever since i been on the needle, no period at all. i been on the needle 2 years, i dont know if its the needle,alot of people i know who have tried the needle for long periods of time got pregnant right after they stopped the needle, maybe im differ?
Avatar n tn It was probably six or seven months with no period. The dr prescribed medroxyprogesterone to jump start my period again. They say they dont like you to go more than six months without a period simply because its good for your uterus to shed its lining and clean itself out. The medication did work but had some side effects for me. Years later, when I was a newly wed my periods stopped once again.
Avatar n tn Well i have not had a period in about a year in a half, i have been to doctors, i had a pelvic exam everything was ok, there is nothing wrong with me. but my period comes on when it wants too. i am trying to have a baby, will i be able to if does not come on, just like the doctor say u will know when u are oavulating because of the thick mucus that comes out i have that all the time but sill no pegnancy.
Avatar f tn My period seemed to be really lite this month so me and my husband had sex for 3 nights in a role when i was on my period and got off in me every time even the last day of my period.my cycles are like every 35 days but my periods usually dont last but 4 days.is there a chance that i might be pregnant?
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 hi i had the depo shot after my son was born and bleed for almost three months and stop bleeding at the begain of this month and i have not started a period yet is it because of the shot
