Why Does Menstruation Not Come After Discontinuing Provera?
Dear Doctor Sp.OG., N nI have been late for about 3 months, my tests are negative. Then I went to the doctor, the results of the lab check, the thyroid hormone and prolactin were in the normal range. N nThen I was given the drug Proverra by the doctor which had to be taken for 10 days. The doctor said, after the drug runs out, about 2-7 days after that menstruation will come. However, until the 9th day after taking the medicine, the menstrual period did not go away. N nThen what? N nPlease ask a doctor for advice on this matter. N Do I have to test? Or do you have to check again? NIf you have to check, when is a good time to do it so that the results are accurate? Did you wait 2 weeks after stopping Proverra? N nThank you, doctor.
The causes of late menstruation besides pregnancy include hormonal imbalances, the effects of using contraceptives, stress and fatigue, thyroid hormone disorders, excess prolactin, PCOS or other reproductive disorders. Your action to consult an obstetrician is right. Your doctor prescribes a drug that contains hormones, your doctor may diagnose a hormonal imbalance in you.
It should be noted beforehand that the levels of reproductive hormones and their responses vary greatly from woman to woman. Often hormonal treatment requires adjusting the dose or changing the drug until you find the right drug and dose. If indeed until the specified time the desired effect has not been achieved, you should consult your gynecologist again. Your obstetrician will evaluate the treatment and determine the next course of action.
Pregnancy tests with test packs can generally detect pregnancy 7-10 days after conception with an accuracy of 98-99% if used correctly. If during your therapy you have sex regularly, you may want to do this test, especially if you experience subjective signs of pregnancy. You can do this right now or 7-10 days after the last sexual intercourse. But you should first consult your obstetrician regarding the previous treatment.
