on depo-provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) and norethin ace for a cyst -- why won't my period stop?

Bleeding on pill?: If you are bleeding while on depo-provera, it may be due to a thin lining of your uterus. Consider asking your gyn for a pelvic sonogram and check this. Maybe you need a little extra estrogen to make your lining thicken to stop the bleeding. Usually Estradiol 2 mg for only 10 days. It is easy and safe.

Dermoid cyst in my ovary, I forget how big it is. Doctor wants me to get it removed but the surgeon said no. I still have it. Pregnancy apossibility?

Yes: Dermoids do not prevent pregnancy but the diagnosis should be confirmed by sonogams. Unless they are very large they usually will not cause problems, but they can twist or rupture so removal might be advisable & can be done laparoscopically before pregnancy.
