What prosedures should I take after using provera (medroxyprogesterone) 3months to treat 3small ovarian cyst but its still the same situation?

Just make: Sure they aren't getting bigger. Having small follicular cysts is not unusual. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) will not make them go away. At 26 it's not cancer. Was it dep-provera (medroxyprogesterone) or oral cyclic provera (medroxyprogesterone)? Are u trying to get pregnant? If they are small, say less than 2 cm each, I wouldn't worry but kinda need to know the context. ...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

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

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

Hi. I have been bleeding almost every day for a few months. I have an ovarian cyst and been off Depo-Provera shot since march. Could this be reason for bleed?

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

If you develop new cysts, your doctor may place you on birth control. Treatment of ovarian cysts depend on your age, size of cysts, your period, and symptoms., Most cysts are benign in women of childbearing age. ...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

Why depo in 1st plac: Sorry to hear what you car going through. Your symptoms are quite broad and difficult to tell the origins based on the info provided. However, having a history of an ovarian cyst (s) and absent menses for a month may indicate possible pcos as a cause. Lupron (leuprolide) is not generally consider a treatment option for this condition of course but the depot itself can be associated with headaches. Talk with pcp. ...Read more

Age 45. Bleeding for 36 days. Provera, (medroxyprogesterone) BCP still bleeding. R ovarian cyst.. 9cm endometrial stripe. What does this mean? TSH WNL. Cramps, fatigue,

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
