How long does progesterone get out of the body it's been a week and no period yet! 10mg pills?

No estrogen?: Hi. Was this a progestin withdrawal challenge? That is, did your doctor just give you medroxyprogesterone for 7-10 days then stop it to see if you'd have a period? That's a test to see if you're making estrogen. If there is no bleed to the progesterone withdrawal, it means you're not making enough estrogen to stimulate the endometrium. But I'm doing a lot of guessing! Good luck! ...Read more

Within how long does birth control shot work if you don't get it within in 5 days of your period. I been told within 7 days and also a month. Any idea?

Within how long does birth control shot work if you don't get it within in 5 days of your period. I been told within 7 days and also a month. Any idea?

5 days is correct: It's not that it won't work if given at 7 days, it's "likely it won't" work. By giving in the 1st 5 days ovulation is almost guaranteed to be stopped, if given later you may ovulate anyway. So it's about how much chance to you want to take on getting pregnant? "One month" is just plain silly, wherever that idea came from. Hope this helps. ...Read more
