Need pelvic exam: Need to see your primary care physician or OB-Gyn for a pelvic exam to check for other reasons like polyps and infections. At this late date, it is doubtful that past depo-provera use is the cause of your continued bleeding for months. Fibroids can cause irregular bleeding symptoms as well as hormonal shifts. Need to see dr. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst: Unless you have begun a contraceptive, it is impossible to know when your next cycle will occur. Usually the follicle ovulates when it is 22mm. You are having an annovulatory cycle. ...Read more

Aub: Could mean different things. Endometrial polyps, fibroids inside your uterus, hormonal imbalance, taking bcp and provera (medroxyprogesterone) at the same time, perimenopause, ovarian cyst producing hormones. I would check your female , adrenal and pituitary hormones to see if there is an imbalance if normal I would check the lining of your uterus. ...Read more

How can i get rid of PCOS ovarian cysts naturally? i am taking metformin and provera (medroxyprogesterone)

How can i get rid of PCOS ovarian cysts naturally? i am taking metformin and provera (medroxyprogesterone)

Part of you: PCOS is not something you get rid of....it's something that's part of your nature. You can do things that keep your weight at a reasonable point like diet and exercise. The more weight you gain, the worse the PCOS can get. Metformin helps some, doesn't help others. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is just to keep your periods regular. You may need fertility meds to help you ovulate when you want to conceive. ...Read more

Does Medroxyprogesterone (Provera) get rid of ovarian cysts?

Does Medroxyprogesterone (Provera) get rid of ovarian cysts?

Probably not: In the usual therapeutic dosage of 10 to 20 mg per day medroxyprogesterone acetate is very unlikely to prevent the maturation of ovarian follicles, to block ovulation or to interfere with the formation of benign functional ovarian cysts. It will probably not "get rid of " other benign ovarian cysts either and will certainly not "get rid of" neoplastic ovarian cysts which are malignant. ...Read more

Does depo-provera shrink or get rid of ovarian cysts?

Does depo-provera shrink or get rid of ovarian cysts?

Not really : The depoprovera shot will not really shrink or get rid of cyst. Most ovarian cysts simply resolve on their own within 6-8 weeks. The shot may help prevent other cysts from forming though by essentially turning the ovaries off during the 3 months that it works. ...Read more

I had regular period before using provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 3month because of 3 ovarian cyst ..When i stop using it my priod became irregular why?

Depo-provera?: If referring to depo-provera, it is not uncommon to have irregular menstrual cycles afterwards, as ovulatory cycles are temporarily disrupted. It takes time for Lupron (leuprolide) to be completely out of one's system. It is not uncommon for several months to pass before regular menstrual cycles return. However, if still irregular menses after 6 months, it is reasonable to consult gyn for further evaluation. ...Read more
