Women's Health / Fertility Overview

Oestrogens or estrogens (spellings in British English and American English usage respectively), are a group of compounds named for their importance in both menstrual and estrous reproductive cycles. They are the primary female sex hormones. Natural estrogens are steroid hormones, while some synthetic ones are non-steroidal[citation needed].

medroxypr ac 10 mg missed 1 period
Will turn 55 in a few months and missed my period last month. Went to gyno for yearly checkup, sonogram showed everything ok. Dr. Prescribed medroxyprogesterone 10mg (for 10 days) so that I can get my period. I don' t understand, for ages when a woman's menstruation stopped it often meant menopause...............I think it's just a ruse for prescribing meds ## Hello, Fina! How are you? Yes, it could artificially induce periods, when you may be menopausal and should no longer be getting them. Even oral contraceptives can do that and, in most cases, doctors have a woman go off of them for a few months, when they reach a certain age, to see if they have periods without them. I'd suggest getting a second opinion from a different doctor. Is there anything else I can help with...

I've been on ortho evra for 5 months loved it and never once had a problem but I already can't stand xulane and so I don't know what I'm going to do ! :( My insurance switched me to xulane because it's the generic brand to ortho evra. This sucks I hate life. Ps. I'm 18 ## I'm 22 and I was on ortho evra for a YEAR and they changed me to this Xulane and good god I hate it. After a week of the switch I was in the emergency room passing clots and feeling like I was in labor, they thought I had PID and put me on antibiotics which kicked my ass even worse, but the bleeding stopped, and yesterday I was cleared to stop taking them because all my labs...

iron complex
can iron polysacharide complex capsule make me get my period back? ## HI, Fahy! How are you? No, this is just an iron supplement that can help treat or prevent anemia, but it will not cause you to start your menstrual cycle. If you are having a problem with yours, you need to consult a doctor to get a proper diagnosis on what's causing the issue and find the proper solution. Most times it's caused by a hormonal imbalance, such as a lack of estrogen or progesterone. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My son is taking medicine for primary complex... is it ok to take multivitamins with lysine and iron, to be specific incremin syrup (vitamins).... once I read in the internet that it is ok to take that kind of vitamins, but now I'm confused because of what I have read a w...
