No: It sounds like you took the medication Provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 10 days and wonder if it will impact your baby. If you were not pregnant when you took Provera (medroxyprogesterone) it will not harm the baby. If you were early pregnancy and took Provera (medroxyprogesterone) it is unlikely that it will cause any harm at all. Check with your doctor if you have more concerns. ...Read more

I am taking provera (medroxyprogesterone) for hormonal imbalance...Can I still have a chance to have a baby? What will I do? Thanks!
It depends...: Provera (medroxyprogesterone) just makes the uterus bleed (like an artificial period). It doesn't typically induce ovulation (though it rarely can). So, if you don't have regular periods, you need to see a board certified reproductive endocrinologist who can test you to find out why, after which he/she can properly treat you to help you ovulate and conceive. ...Read more
I had a child 11/10 and got back on Depo-Provera january 2011 have been bleeding every since I have been bleeding for like a year now
Bleeding: Bleeding for a year is a very long time and deserves a complete gynecological evaluation. Bleeding for a prolonged time period can be caused by fluctuations in hormone levels, stress on the body, or abnormal weight (too high or too low). Please have a complete gynecological evaluation. Also please be sure your pap smear is up to date. ...Read more

I been on a Depo-Provera shot 3 times my next shot is in april next week how long it takes to have a baby how can I help it leave my system?
Wait and see: If your next shot is due in april, and you want to get pregnant, of course, don't get the next shot. Some women are fertile almost immediately 12 weeks from the last shot. Other women take 3-9 months before they are fertile. I have not heard of any way to make the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) leave and make a woman fertile faster. You will have to wait and see. ...Read more

Well me and my partner have been trying to have a baby. I was on yhe Depo-Provera shot and I am now off. We have been trying. What can cause not having onr?
Regular periods?: The Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot is one of the slower to reverse reversible contraceptive methods. When was last shot? If your periods are still irregular then you may not be ovulating yet. If you do have regular cycles, then try to use ovulation kits to help determine what day you ovulate. Have unprotected sex around the day you ovulate - mainly the day before and the day of ovulation. Speak w/ your doctor! ...Read more
