Hey ladies. I started to take Provera on Thursday to induce a cycle. We did the BD the same day I took the provera. Well, that same day I noticed some fertile CM. I didn't think much of it because I have gotten several fertile patches of CM through each cycle.
I didn't O until CD 46 on my last cycle. That's why I was put on this med.
Anyway... my temp went up slightly on Friday and now this morning it shot up. I slept horribly but now I have two days of higher temps and if I get a third day tomorrow, I will get my crosshairs. I don't know if I O'ed.
So now I'm scared. What if this egg catches?
My doctor said that Provera wouldn't cause a miscarriage and my sister was on it for Endo and got pregnant without a problem.
But, I'm worried. It's designed to make you bleed... at least in my case.
Have any of you had any experiences with Provera? I can't call the doctor because it's Satuday and can't call until Monday. I also don't want to stop this med in the middle of it. And, it's probable that a. I didn't actually O, or b. the eggie didn't catch, anyway.
(And the open circles on my chart are only becuse I've been temping at 6am rather than 7.)
This is the first time while TTC that I almost hope I didn't O!
Does anyone know about Provera? I researched it and found mixed answers about its safety with pregnancy. All I know is that at least my doc said it wouldn't cause miscarriage and my sister was on it and got pg.
Sorry... I'm just freaking out and needed to get this out.
I've taken provera 2x now and my doctor told me that the primary concern with Provera is that it can cause birth defects, but that it is a very slight chance only and nothing to cause panic over. I had to have a pregnancy test before being given the Provera & my doctor recommended that we do not have sex the week before starting the medication.
I found the following online:
There *is* an increased risk of birth defects in children born to mothers who took Provera during early pregnancy. It is a *slightly* increased risk. The risk arises both from the fact that Provera may cause an implanted ova with serious defects from miscarrying (because it is a uterine relaxant) and from the effect that artificially elevated female hormone levels may have on a male fetus. The risk, as I say, is still slight (meaning that it does often happen that women who do not know they are pregnant take medications to induce a period. They shouldn't panic! Their chances of having a child with birth defects are still very very slim. Progestins (Provera) don't necessarily cause miscarriage but instead just slightly increase the risk of minor birth defects.[/b]
