From what I have ready online, you won't bleed from the Provera if you are pregnant. Apparently many many years back, Provera was used to tell if someone was pregnant, they would take it for the amount of days and if they got a period they weren't pregnant, and if they didn't they were pregnant.
There is a small chance (I read this online somewhere when I took it but now cannot find the link to give you) that if the baby is a boy they will be born with some easily fixable problem with the urethra.
that was very helpful thank you so much! and i take it every month for the next three months to get my cycle regulated for good, i've never had regular periods anytime in my life haha
Oh ok. I just never heard of that before and was curious why you were taking every month. Good luck!!! Hope that it helps regulate your cycles so you can go on to get your bfp!!!! Fingers crossed for you!!!
I have a quick question, Are you using Provera as a progestrone boost after O? Or are you using it to induce your periods?
If you are taking it and maybe pregnant there is nothing wrong because Provera is actually a progestrone It is a very low dosage but still something your body naturally produces during pregnancy. When you O you have a surge of Progestrone and over the course of the 2WW your progestrone dwindles down to nothing. The sudden drop causes your lining to shed, hence your period.
i am taking it to induce periods. the only thing i'm concerned about is, i took it ten days out of the month for three months, and she just told me to take it for three more months, that seems like a long time to be taking it...but i might just be paranoid. they thought i had a clot in my lungs from this medication but it came back negative...it had regulated them amazingly, and they've been 28 days apart the last four months, but i don't even know if i'm ovulating....i'm confused! lol
Have you tried to track O with temping or OPKs any?
It is hard to say if you are Oing at all due to the continual use of Provera. It is very possible but still hard to say unless you are tracking it with something.
So you are taking it for another 2 months along with this cycle? If this so, I would track O while on Provera to see what your cycle is doing and once your doctor takes you off you will have a better understanding.
If you are not Oing then maybe you can be placed on Clomid to help with O Have you been tested for PCOS? Many people with irregular cycles tend to have problems Oing or have PCOS, not all though. I hope this helps!
i used to track O with the little test strips, so i know i used to to ovulate atleast lol but not lately...i asked my obgyn about getting tested for pcos, and she pretty much said "well even if you do, it isn't going to help me out any" which i thought was pretty...well, stupid of her to say, but she said i was going to start clomid that last time i did provera and then just put me on three more months of it..six months of this stuff isn't fun haha i'm just lost on what to do! i feel like i'm in the dark!
