I'm taking danazol and had unprotected sex. How likely is it that I'm pregnant?

I'm taking danazol and had unprotected sex. How likely is it that I'm pregnant?

Likeliness depends: On things like how close to ovulation the sexual intercourse was. Pregnancy is definitely possible with this scenario.

Don't have unprotected sex on Danazol. If may impact effectiveness of oral contraceptives. ...Read more

What to do if I have fibrocystic breast condition and have been prescribed danazol. Is that the only cure?

Questionable: Fibrocystic disease represents the change in effect of estrogen on the breast from the young patient where fibroadenomas develop to the duct system which causes intermittent blockage from lining overgrowth which produces fibrocystic disease in the older patient.

My trans vaginal scan shows endometriosis for that doctor advise me danazol 200mg tds. For 3 to 6 months as I have no baby for 3yearz marriage time?

Worrisome: A 27 year old female comments that her doctor used transvaginal ultrasound to "show endometriosis". I am not aware that ultrasound can be used to make this diagnosis. Perhaps a gynecologist can confirm or refute this diagnostic phenomenon. In my opinion, the diagnosis of endometriosis should only be made if tissue pathology confirms. ...Read more

What happens when your pregnant and you take the Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) and danazol but you had sex in last day?

A little confused: I am not sure I have the correct info. Neither of those meds would be knowingly used during pregnancy and would not be used together. Usually Danazol is used for endometriosis although it does have a few other uses and Depo-Provera can be used for same reason. If you got pregnant while on Danazol you need to speak with OB about potential problems. Getting pregnant on Depo-Provera not so much a concern. ...Read more

My tvs scan shows both ovarian cyst also size of ovary larger. Have no kids.4 yrz of marriage. Can I tak danazole or laproscope best for fertility n cys?

Neither: Your doctor may chose to treat or just watch the cyst (s) depending on their size and appearance. Danazol is used to treat the pain of endometriosis, not infertility. It is neither safe nor effective for fertility treatment. Laparoscopy is surgery and should not be the first treatment for infertility, unless the doctor wishes to treat the cyst. ...Read more

What is best pain medication?

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain.
