Common Questions and Answers about Medroxyprogesterone use


2051102 tn?1330321233 I went back on the medication Medroxyprogesterone this month. I was on it in March and started my period as normal but instead of lasting 14 days it lasted 12. Last month I forgot that I was suppose to take the medication and as normal I started but one day early and again it lasted 12 days. I started on the 2nd of this month and my period was suppose to start on the 7th of this month, I am now 5 days late.

Avatar f tn Didn't know if I should repost to your question as to what type of progesterone I was on. It's Medroxyprogesterone, 10 mgs. and the patch is Vivelle .1, But, I only use either 1/4 to 1/2. I seem to need 1/2 when I'm on the Medroxyprogesterone because sometimes the night sweats come back during those 10 days. I also have Prometriu which I don't use. Can someone switch from Medroxyprogesterone to Prometrium. My girlfriend takes the Prometrium every day instead of Medroxyprogesterone for 10 days.
Avatar m tn It's really not likely this method will fail, but if you are overly concerned, you can also use condoms. In the end, the only way not to get pregnant or get someone pregnant is to not have sex- but the method of prevention you are using is known as a very reliable one.
Avatar n tn Current indications for the use of Medroxyprogesterone are secondary amenorrhea, abnormal uterine bleeding, as treatment of uterine cancer or kidney cancer when used in much higher doses.
Avatar f tn I am on Medroxyprogesterone. & i hade un protected sex then i took a plan B pill & i am now 2days late with my perios.

Avatar m tn Hi, my wife has been taking Medroxyprogesterone(10mg 3xday) for the past 7days, and has(in the past four days)switched to Sprintec birth control pills as ordered by her Doctor. Is it safe for us to have sex now(as far as pregnancy goes)?
Avatar f tn Okay my doctor give me medroxyprogesterone 10mg. So I told my doctor it was a iregular she gave me that to take for 10 days, one pill a day. I took all the pills and then I start testing for ovulation. 2 days it was testing I tested positive for ovulation I started bleeding and looks like I'm on my menstrual cycle but I don't know what it means can anybody help me.
Avatar n tn Hi, I haven't had my period in years so I went to the doctor she did a pap test and then she told me she would give me medroxyprogesterone which is a generic brand. She told me that I should use protection with my b/f in case I get pregnant while taking these for only 10 days. Now my question is... I haven't had my period and she didn't give me any tests to see if i'm ovulating so how could I possibly get pregnant?
Avatar n tn 11 and i can't seem to get it- I took a pregnancy test and it was negative- i use condoms during sex so i don't think i'm pregnant, but i'm not sure. Does anyone have any insight as to why i'm going on 70 days with no period, I know your period can get out of whack from stopping the pill but it's been almost 6months!
Avatar f tn Now im trying medroxyprogesterone, which made me bleed more. I am to the point where i am mentally and emotionally depressed. I do not wish to have any more children. Is there something i can use to stop it!

Avatar f tn I've had an abnormal flow for a very long time. I use to be on birth control but stopped taking them a year or so ago. In February my boyfriend and I were messing around. We didn't have sex or anything but some of the things we did made me really paranoid that there was a small chance I could be pregnant. I stressed out really hard that month and missed my period. I took two pregnancy tests and they both came out negative, afterwards I went to the doctor and was prescribed Medroxyprogesterone.
Avatar n tn I have been on birth control up till 3 months ago due to irregular periods, I just had a pap smear that came back clear, and started the day after. I bleed heavily for about 4 days and have been prescribed medroxyprogesterone to control the bleeding. I have also just started taking a blood pressure medicine and am on my second week. I am 36 and have a sonogram scheduled on monday to prepare for an upcoming hysterectomy within the year.
Avatar f tn started using the birth control Medroxyprogesterone in April and i'm starting to notice that my hair is falling and thinning. will my hair grow back when off the medication?
237300 tn?1231458318 She may be hesitant because its just been 6 weeks, may want to wait a bit to see if your period comes naturally. I waited just over 7 weeks post D&C to start the Provera. Dose can be 10mg provera for 5-10 days (I took mine for 10). You should have a period 3-7 days after the last provera dose, although many drs may want you to wait up to 14 days before doing further testing and/or trying the provera again.
1856888 tn?1325186544 usually best use of depo-provera is that you do not delay the next injection with in 1/2 weeks. i am not sure after missing one month when are you suppose to start provera. however with medication Normally the level of progesterone in your blood increases about a week before your period. 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.
1745826 tn?1317596663 One day in september on a friday i got hit real hard in the stomach playing basketball, when i got home the same day i use the rest room and whipped and seen blood it wasnt like a menstruel period because it would have mest up my clothes like always so it was pretty weird i got scared because im thinking im pragnant. i went to the OB/GYN friday on the 30th of sept. my OB did a pep smear and took blood did a pregnancy test it came back negative (urine test).. so they think its amenorrhea.
Avatar n tn Also, is there any other health problems that may arise because of my estrogen taking? I was taking medroxyprogesterone but have ceased as I believe it can eliminate your ability to produce sperm. The reason I was taking this was because of its assistance in breast growth in transsexuals.

Avatar f tn ok so i had a DNC done 7 weeks ago. the baby was dead and i hadn't had a miscarriage yet so they had to go in and take it out. well its been 7 weeks like i said and on the 19 of last month i went in to the ER because i was bleeding quite a bit and they put me on 10mg of Medroxyprogesterone or a more common name, provera.
Avatar f tn Well, today is CD 38, and I have been taking 10mg of Medroxyprogesterone for 7 days to induce a period. Well, I went to the RR today, and when I wiped, I noticed some mucus that looked exactly like egg whites. I tested it to see how stretchy it was, and it stretched about 2 inches. I am SO confused as to why I am seeing this. I should be getting my period any day now... Did I just ovulate? Is that why I'm seeing that kind of CM?
Avatar m tn will i ovulate after finishing my 10 day supply of medroxyprogesterone 10mg? it was prescribed to me to stop my period, i was on day 10 when i went to the doc, I had 8 previous days of heavy bleeding before i went to the doc. so for now it seems to almost have stopped to a very slow flow. my husband and i are Trying to Conceive....another question, in a lot of posts i've noticed people use the anagram AF, what does that stand for?
Avatar f tn The Women's Health Initiative showed that combined HRT as Prempro (conjugated estrogen plus progestin formulation medroxyprogesterone acetate) increased the risk of breast cancer. Estrogen taken without a progestin (Premarin) did not increase risk of breast cancer. But you are correct that a progestin or progesterone needs to be taken with estrogen to protect the uterine lining from proliferation and risk of hyperplasia or cancer.

Avatar f tn Anyhow, the past couple of days I have had this low crampy feeling in my abdomen , like a pinching kind of ache, I am still having CM discharge, creamy, /glob like -tmi, sorry- when I use the bathroom. Yesterday my stomach was burning, it could have been what I ate though, Anyhow, I don't want to dwell on anything or get my hopes up anymore. I know that it is too early to know anything now. How is everyone. Updates.
