Medroxyprogesterone weight

Common Questions and Answers about Medroxyprogesterone weight


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  What we do need to be careful of is our weight and eating habits. Ladies with pcos can tend to be overweight and even become diabetic. So staying healthy is key both for you and your future baby. Keep your head up!!!!!
Avatar n tn Weight gain, weird cravings for sweets, ugly bad moods and at times emotional and cramping from time to time. Does anyone know what can be the cause of this or why the pills haven't brought down my period. (Btw, its my First time taking them.
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.
1003693 tn?1250204277 Well i had an appointment with my endocrinologist today, she said the clomid didn't help, i didn't ovulate, so she told me to stop taking it and to stop taking medroxyprogesterone cause it was making me swell and gain weight, but she referred me to a fertility specialist who she has talked to and who is willing to help me, basically the last fertility specialist said they wouldnt' be able to do anything for me cause of my weight, hell they wouldn't even give me clomid unless i lost like 70 pound
Avatar f tn I took two pregnancy tests and they both came out negative, afterwards I went to the doctor and was prescribed Medroxyprogesterone. My period came and it was a normal flow that lasted the same amount of time as it always does. Right now I'm currently taking Tri-Sprintec. I've noticed that my breasts are getting bigger, but at the moment I'm extremely inactive. So my question is: could this weight gain be from my inactivity coupled with my new birth control or could it be pregnancy?
Avatar f tn 500) I was very upset at my last visit because of the inability to lose weight, so they put me on an antidepressant. I have been on two exercise programs that the doctor has recommended. Currently on Weight Watchers and it has taken me 5 months to lose 10 pounds. I am currently taking these meds: Estradiol, MedroxyProgesterone, Sertraline, Fenofibric Acid, Atenolol, Potassium, Vitamin D, & Furosemide.
Avatar n tn I have not had a weight problem before I found out I had PCOS. I have been working on my eatting and excercise habits for the past few years. Me and my husband have had unprotected sex for about 2 1/2 years now. I finally went to the dr. and told them we are ready to conceive I was prescribed medroxyprogesterone & Metformin. I have realized I have to make myself healthier and not rely on any type of medication.
427728 tn?1204233418 but ever since last year i've been getting irregular menses. I went to my OB and he perscribed me MedroxyProgesterone and clomid a couple times. After taking it a couple of times I got my menses naturally (without meds), which is really good. This year, January and February I had my menses but only slightly. It wasn't heavy as before. My first day of my last menses was on Feb. 5th 2008.
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 I went, I was scanned, scooped, pricked and had my tinkle tested for pregnancy needless to say BFN on all accounts. Was I shocked? Absolutely not, I had figured as much! I was put on Medroxyprogesterone to start my period and was told to call the 1st day that my period starts to schedule lab work and to not TTC until the meds are finished (basically no BD'ing for 10 days) and then after that it's a free for all. I think she believes I show symptoms of PCOS, now on to my question.
Avatar n tn since I started menstruating I had a problem cause it only come 3 time a year but as I am writing I just got it once this year . September I was advice to take medroxyprogesterone injection to normalize my hormones and after few day I bot Provera pills can I take them while I am on this injection or please advice me ?
Avatar n tn Every doctor I have known swears that birth control does not cause weight gain. I would have to disagree. It's not water weight. I took diuretics one month followed the instructions and not one ounce difference in my clothes or scale. Another month I did the Master Cleanser detox for 7 days where you do not eat ,you only drink fresh squeezed lemon water and cayenne pepper. Still clothes and scale stayed the same. I was told my ovulation pains are phantom pains.
Avatar f tn I met with the dietition this clinic offers, Kendall, after. Part of the treatment for my PCOS is going to be losing 10% of my body weight, which should be regulate periods and help with the insulin. I am on a diet that is low-carb, low-fat, and high-fiber. I've been told to eat more fruits and veggies in replacement for what I'm losing so I get "good" everything, instead of the "bad".
Avatar n tn At age 19 I started taking medroxyprogesterone every 4 months, so every 4 months up until February 2007 I had a period. I never had any problems until the end of 2006; the last 3 times I took the pills, I would have chest pain, leg pain, racing heart, and extreme fatigue. This would usually last the first 2-3 days of taking it, then the rest of the 10 day medication cycle those symptoms would fade away for the most part.
Avatar n tn If they still dont find anything abnormal, ask your doc about Vitex chastberry, which has been known to help ovulation and regulate cycles. also if you are under weight try gaining weight, and if you are over weight try losing. I was a bit underweight and has poor eating habits and NEVER use to drink water. all that has changed and i feel better and AF arrived. i also take prenatal vitamins to give me extra nutrients.
Avatar f tn my lymp nodes started to swell up to 4 cm. they cause me constant pain. i began to lose weight, my migraines became 3 times worse, i started throwing up, and feeling depressed. now little white bumps have been coming up all over my body. my doctor scared me when she asked did i have HIV. i have no other type of STD. the doctor cannot tell me whats wrong with me. i go to the doctor constantly.
1897345 tn?1374269455 i only was prescribed 10 pills and was told to take one a day and it was no refills the meds are called medroxyprogesterone i don't have all the signs for PCOS tho the DR.
Avatar f tn My sister in law missed 3 or 4 periods in a row and then low and behold it came (and she wasnt pregnant, she was going to her doctors and got tests done) Other things can make you late, change in diet, stress, recent weight gain or weight loss. I would call your doctor they can do a blood pregnancy test on you and tell you for sure and if it comes up negative they might want to see you if they can figure out why you are late.

135691 tn?1271100723 My symptoms, like a lot of us here, include insomnia, diminished sexual desire, fatigue, headache, lethargy, depression, weight gain, vaginal dryness, stress incontinence... and LOTS of whining. Thank you so much for your help and all that you do, your answers are so very kind and thoughtful...
Avatar f tn Anyway, I have a lot to say about the contraceptives that I have tried here, and none of them satisfied me at all. Weight gain and depression were the most common side effects I have gone through when taking Loestrin 30 (ethinylestradiol, norethisterone) and once I decided to put the Implanon (etonogestrel) – I could only handle it inside for 7 months and it was awful all the way out. I have never had so many side effects as this one.
Avatar f tn I am overweight btw waaaayyyy over weight and I just had to get medroxyprogesterone to start my cycle and then of course the clomid along with the metformin...etc. I have been loossing weight slowly, but I haven't lately (as in the last 4 months) been really focusing on loosing weight haven't really been giving it my all, but of course I'm going to be more focused now than before and a little more patient as well.
Avatar n tn I have always been on the hevier side and my weight has been up and down over the years. Should I just continue to lose weight and wait for it to get better? Should I be worried at all?
Avatar f tn Efficacy DMPA is an extremely effective contraceptive option. Neither varying weight nor use of concurrent medications has been noted to alter efficacy. Within the first year of use, the failure rate is 0.3%. Advantages DMPA does not produce the serious adverse effects of estrogen, such as thromboembolism. Diminished anemia occurs. Dysmenorrhea is decreased. The risks of endometrial and ovarian cancer are decreased.
Avatar m tn I have been pregnant before naturally, so this diagnosis makes no sense to me. I eat healthy and workout and have no problem with my weight, no unexplained weight gain, etc. I thought I had a miscarriage because I fell on pavement and landed on my pelvic bone and that's when I started bleeding (my dog whacked me on the back of the knee as we were walking with his head).
Avatar f tn My doctor says if eat less sugar and stop wasting calories on drinks, it will help with weight loss. Right now i only drink water, green tea (hot and cold) and seltzer. I buy heathly snacks and walk alot more. When I first started on the diet, i lost 13lbs easy. But then I stopped losing weight. So a friend on here suggested I take up walking. So started to walk about 30 mins a day and that started the weight coming off again. Good luck everybody!
