No period after taking deviry

Hi.

Please reply me in hindi language. ## Deviry (Medroxyprogesterone) 10mg is a female hormonal medication used to help regulate ovulation and treat certain menstrual/uterine problems; including but not limited to secondary amenorrhea (the absence of one's period), abnormal bleeding, hormonal imbalance, etc... Some Thoughts: If Deviry is used to treat an absent period, but ends up backfiring, my theory would be that this medication isn't necessary appropriate for that patient's unique situation OR perhaps more time is needed to p...

what pharmacy carries greenstone 2.5

I have successfully taken.mederoxyprogesterone for years but some of them have sodium laurel sulfate, I can't take them. I need greenstone 2.5 mg. Where can I find it? ## Hello Linda, Sorry to say but almost nobody will be able to answer this question for you. The reason is that most pharmacies refuse to put out the information regarding which brands/generics that they carry to avoid incentivizing thieves from targeting their store. I know it's inconvenient for people who need to take specific generics but realistically it's a necessary precaution to avoid having prescription drugs stolen, sold and abused. Other users have claimed that they found luck calling around in some areas while others had to go to the pharmacies in person in order to get this information. Many also c...

Petogen and pregnancy

I've been using petogen consistently for 6 months now which is 2 shots. Seven weeks into the second shot I had unprotected intercourse and I'm experiencing excessive hunger these days... Could I be pregnant? ## Not likely, as long as you made sure to receive your shots on time. It is a long-term contraceptive that contains Medroxyprogesterone. The NIH does warn that it can cause increased hunger, weight gain, nausea, irregular bleeding, and headache. Are you on any other medications? ## I'm not on any other medication. I have another question, if I go for a shot a week later than prescribed, would it be much of a problem?

Post menopausal provera thick lining

I am 62, post menopausal, have thickening of endo lining and spot bleeding. I am on provera and it has stopped the spotting. I forgot to take it for 2 days. I started spitting again. Now I am back on it faithfully and am not spotting. Is this medicine to help thin my lining out or just stop spot bleeding? Will I have to take it for the rest of my life?
