No estrogen: In order for your period to come on, your uterus needs to be exposed to estrogen, followed by Progesterone and then the withdrawal of these hormones. This is what happens when you ovulate and when you take birth control. It is likely you did not ovulate and did not make estrogen. You should discuss these issues with your gyn.

A 36-year-old member asked:

Does cyclogest taken during pregnancy increase progesterone?

Dr. Dennis Higginbotham

Progesterone: Cyclogest is a progesterone, so it would increase Progesterone levels. Progesterone supplementation is sometimes indicated to support a pregnancy. When used in pregnancy, it is generally continued until about 11 to 15 weeks of pregnancy - by that time the placenta will have taken over Progesterone production to maintain the pregnancy.

Need more info: I assume if you are on Progesterone after a d+c that you had the d+c done because of heavy bleeding or some similar problem. I assume you did not have the d+c because of a miscarriage. Progesterone after a d+c because of heavy bleeding can help to prevent the lining from overgrowing and will actually help with future pregnancy.

Provided original answer
It might take a while to get your period back after a D+C. You should have a period after you stop the progesterone. If you do not have any bleeding after you stop the progesterone, then you should see your doctor.

Progest after IUI: If you have a low Progesterone level 1 week after ovulation, vaginal Progesterone it a good idea! it will not guarantee a pregnancy, but it will correct the luteal phase (two week interval from ovulation to menses) of your cycle. Low Progesterone levels can explain infertility, and. I diagnoses this by endometrial biopsy and Progesterone level. Try the therapy for 3 cycles because it works!.
A 65-year-old female asked:

One of the answers for rectocele treatment included the words vaginal pessary . What is this?

Supportive ring: Rectocele occurs when pelvic floor muscle lose support; rectum, usually uterus, maybe bladder sag. Pessary is a ring inserted into vagina to help keep things up and perky (kind of like a vaginal truss). This helps keep the rectum straight (as name implies), and lets it do its job of evacuating stool out, not bulge into vaginal vault.
A member asked:

I am taking 60 mg phenobarbital daily after my skull tumor operation in 1995. What precautions should I take for my daily routine?

Ask yourself why: Was it a skull tumor or brain tumor? Why was the drug started in the 1st place? For seizure prevention? Have you ever had a seizure? Do you still need it? If you still need a seizure med, why phenobarbital? That's a bad drug for adults: bad for your bones, not great for your liver either. Go see a neurologist and ask him/her to reassess everything.
