Does Anyone Experience Constant Spotting?

Does Anyone Experience Constant Spotting?

I haven't had my period for almost 3 months. Then it came this month and it really hasn't dissipated. It started off really heavy and lasted for 2 weeks. And let's not even talk about the facial hair and acne now. I thought it was finally over then a day later bam here goes the spotting or light bleeding. I have to carry around tampons regularly because I never know. I haven't even been diagnosed yet. I go to the gyn Wednesday. I'm just over it. It's been like this off and on for over a year… read more

Medroxyprogesterone is a type of female hormone (progestin). This medication is similar to the progesterone that your body naturally makes and is given to replace the hormone when your body is not making enough of it. This medication has several uses. In women who are not pregnant and not going through menopause, this medication is used to treat abnormal bleeding from the uterus and to restore normal menstrual periods in women who have stopped having them for several months. Medroxyprogesterone is also used as part of combination hormone replacement therapy with estrogens to reduce menopause symptoms (e.g., hot flashes). Medroxyprogesterone is added to estrogen replacement therapy to reduce the risk of cancer of the uterus.

My gyn doctor had me start a medication called provera, I take it for the first 10 days of every month and get a regular period, after being on it for like 3 months my periods became less painful and only last like 3 days now. The moment I stop taking the medication I go back to having irregular periods. Hope this works
