Questions regarding a period stimulating medication and recommendations for a good birth control pill.

Has anyone ever taken MedroxyPR to stimulate a period? It is only 7 days late, wondering if I should wait to see if my body does it on its own or just take it to see what happens.

Also I am considering going back on BC to regulate my hormones, but I have also had the opposite effect while taking BC. Anyone know of a good one that helps with PCOS related issues?

I tend to do this when women around me are pregnant, often before they know or have said anything. My doctor said this was normal a long time ago when a mother may not live through birth. Other women often produced milk at the same time, even though they weren't pregnant in case they needed to care for the baby. Apparently, I am one of the lucky ones that do this.
Only thing is, it doesn't just cause me to produce milk, it messes with my cycle as well.... The last… read more
