Hi I went to my gyno I have irregular period and I have been trying to concieve. I went in she said to take these pills medroxyprogesterone for 3 months 1 pill a day for 10 days out of a month. She said she is using it to regulate my period. How long do you think it will take for this to work and is this medication work? Have you ever heard of it helping women get prego? I have asked before but I need a differnt opinion


thank you

My doctor perscribed this medication to me for one month to induce a period because I had not had a period for 5 months. I was only able to tolerate taking it for 7 days though because I got very bad headaches from taking it. Even though I only took it for 7 days, I still had a period. The way my doctor explained it to me was that this drug would induce a period, but not directly cause me to ovulate. But if your period becomes more regular and you ovulate on a more regular basis than it may be easier to get pregnent. I have not had a period in 5 months, so the doctor explained to me that unless I start having a period naturally, I would have to take a fertility drug like clomid to get pregnent because that shows that I am not ovulating at all.

Hey,

i am new to this site as well. I have talked to a doctor about bringing on a period. My understanding is that progesterone will bring on a period if you are not getting one at all. I hope this helps. I haven't had one in two months and I am just waiting another week until I take a progesterone supplement.

I have pcos...I don't ovulate at all and have gone as long as 12 mths without having one. The dr put me on pro. To have a period. They were doing it once every 3 mths. But the peroids were so aweful like that I just went on the pill to have one every mth. And it's not bad at all and lasts no more than 4 days.......I have to have an hsg done and then the Dr. Is starting me on clomid which we have been waiting for for over a year. Good luck to you.

Medroxyprogesterone
I was put put on medroxyprogesterone 5mg to take on days 10-24 of my cycle. I just took my last pill of the first dose yesterday. I didnt and still dont quiet understand how or when to take these pills. My doc said if i see spotting consider it the start of period and start the pill. I have never been regular but i am only 18. I am married weve been together 3 years and want a baby. I plan to take the pills every month on the first because thats whn i started last month. Is that right? Also will this pill help me get pregnant? If so when should my hubby and i have intercourse for best results of getting pregnant???

Pregnant on progesterone?
Hi,
I went to my doctor today, because I have not had my period in 8 weeks. I have never been regular, but 8 weeks is long, even for me. The home pregnancy test came out negative, so I wanted to have a blood test done, but she told me that I didn't need one, and she put me on medroxyprogesterone. I am worried that I do not have enough HCG to show up on a home test, which I've heard from women on forums is quite common, and that I could be pregnant. So my question is, do I take the medroxyprogesterone if there is still a chance that I could be pregnant? Should I call back and insist on a blood test before starting it?
Thanks.

MEDROXYPROGESTERONE
Hi Lady's !! I am 31 and I have been off medroxyprogesterone for 2 days now and my husband and I have been trying for a yr now. I was on clomid last year in june and 2mos later found out i was prego but i had a miscarriage a month later since than we have been trying but than hubby left for deployment.. Me personally I prefer the clomid cause i know it works.. my doctor put me on medrox cause i have been having wacky periods since than lol.. but i have had a tubal reversal 3 years ago. so my periods have been up and down.. But again I know clomid works.. now that hubby is back we have been trying and nothing yet.. i have asked my doctor about clomid,and i get medrox. im not sure if this info helps any of you lady's out there but i know i would like to have a child before im 35.. (but i have have to have faith that the god has a time for everything) GOOD LUCK TO ALL LADYS THAT ARE TRYING
