If I been on Depo-Provera for 2 months can I take metformin to get pregnant?

Metformin is not: Going to have an effect that helps to override depo-provera. It can help some women with polycyystic ovarian syndrome to ovulate but you are going to have to let the depo-provera run its course. Good luck. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

On October 1 I had a still born. On October 13 I received metformin 2, 000 mg and Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone). On the 19 I had intercourse. Can I get pregnant?

Highly unlikely: At least for the next 3 months. By the 19th, the depo-medroxyprogesterone had already primed your hypothalamus-pituitary-ovary pathway, tricking your brain into thinking you were already pregnant. So, your ovarian follicles aren't going to pop out eggs, and your uterus is not going to build up its endometrial lining key for implantation. You may have some spotting, or stop menstruating for a while ...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

Can metformin and provera (medroxyprogesterone) help you conceive?

Sometimes: Metformin lowers your Insulin levels and may help women with pcos ovulate. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is a progestin and sometimes will induce an ovulation in someone who is not ovulating but is mostly used as a tool to regulate menstrual cycles and prevent cancer in women who do not ovulate. Women with irregular periods should see their gynecologist or a reproductive endocrinologist for advice on these treatments. ...Read more

Anovulation: I am going to presume that if you are on Provera (medroxyprogesterone) and metformin that you have pcos.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome defined as anovulation, hyperestrogen and hyperandrogen (testosterone). Symptoms include irregular menses, weight gain, hirsutism and Insulin resistance. Metformin controls your blood sugar and in some instances can cause ovulation to occur. The Provera (medroxyprogesterone) which is Progesterone counters. ...Read more

Ovulation with PCOS: Pcos requires expert management. Consider your goals in treatment - do you want to conceive, or are the symptoms of pcos the main problem?

Insulin regulating medications like metformin are useful, but the adrenal hormones should also be assessed. Ovulation induction using clomphene or Letrozole helps with conception. Ocps can assist in controlling androgens. ...Read more

PCOS + anovulatory cycles. Can metformin or one 7 day course of provera (medroxyprogesterone) help jumpstart ovulatory cycles? Will using both be more effective?

PCOS + anovulatory cycles. Can metformin or one 7 day course of provera (medroxyprogesterone) help jumpstart ovulatory cycles? Will using both be more effective?

Provera (medroxyprogesterone) will: Induce a period if you have built up sufficient lining of the uterus due to prior estrogen levels. Metformin will reduce the basic metabolic defect of PCOS which is insulin resistance. They don't jumpstart menses. Metformin needs to be taken long term and the dose gradually increased as tolerated to a optimum of 1000 mg twice/day. Check w/your doctor. ...Read more

I gave birth to a still born on October 1 and started Depo-Provera and metformin 2, 000 mg on the 13th. And had intercourse 5 days later. Am I at risk of preg?

I gave birth to a still born on October 1 and started Depo-Provera and metformin 2, 000 mg on the 13th. And had intercourse 5 days later. Am I at risk of preg?

Pregnancy?: A stillborn birth may not have the same levels of estrogen produced by the placenta, and consequently, ovulation may occur sooner than with a live birth. Pregnancy is possible with intercourse on the 18th of October, but unlikely. Wait another 12-14 days and obtain a serum (HCG) pregnancy test to be certain. ...Read more

Will Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) make PCOS worse, help, or keep it the same? Do I need to continue Metformin & Spironolactone while using Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone)?

Will Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) make PCOS worse, help, or keep it the same? Do I need to continue Metformin & Spironolactone while using Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone)?

It all depends: It depends on "why" you are using it: it will not make anything "worse." DMPA generally stops (after few months) irregular bleeding from PCOS: It will NOT 1) make you ovulate (the contrary,) 2) it will not cure your PCOS, 3) it will not help you get pregnant. It stops periods and will reduce (or eliminate) your risk of endometrial hyperplasia. ...Read more
