Hello ladies,
So I kind of posted this on the other board I am on as well but this is slightly different . So I started provera yesterday to start my period, since it is CD 31 not and still no signs of AF and getting BFNs . We have to take a cycle off due to hubby's deployment schedule ( just a short one) and are doing an IUI in november . My two questions are : Does using provera to start a cycle increase your chanse of loss because the cycle did not start on it's own . Also, using provrea to start this cycle, if I change up my diet and exercise more regularly, is there a chance I will get my cycle on my own with out provera to do my IUI? Thanks guys !!!!

I haven't ever heard of provera increases your chances of a loss. So I don't think that is something to worry about. Provera is in and out of your system in the same amount of time you are taking it.

Changing your diet and trying to lose some weight can definitely change your cycles up a bit. Losing just 10 pounds can make you O on your own if you aren't already. Just because you are taking provera this cycle, won't mean AF won't come on her own next time around.

Good luck!

Yet another wonderful siggy by HeatherW.... thank you so much!!!

To my knowledge Provera in no way increases your chance of a miscarraige. I actually can't have AF without it because I don't ovulate on my own... and have a healthy toddler to show for it.

As for changing up your diet and working out... It definitely can't hurt. It can only be good for you and ultimately for the baby. And who knows... it may increase your cycle regularity as well. GL!

Thanks guys !!! I guess I am just paranoid . Losing the twins has been such a blow and I guess that I am scared because the IUI worked the first time, last time it won't take this time .. I mean.. It is odd.. some days I am super positive about it and the next I am scared I will have scaring from the 2 d&c's I had to have... I mean.. When I got my BFN this month I was hopeful that at least it would start on it's own .. and then having to take provera was like another tiny kick...I just hope it works and AF shows up super quick.. so I can wait another 28 to 30 days and take it again if she does nto come on her own .. November is my month.. I have to believe it... I was just for some reason scared that provera can raise the chance of a loss.. I did not take it with my daughters.. and I kept them.. I tried for 22 months for my twins, took provera that cycle and lost them... it just.... stinks... Anyway, sorry for my mini rant, and thanks again !!
