Ask Your Own OB GYN Question

Are you taking the medroxyprogesterone daily? What dose? How old are you?

Was it the Depo Provera shot?

Probably was but I haven't seen my period since the end of July. I spotted once it was a dark brown blood did not even last the whole day

Thank you.

The Depo Provera takes at least 3 months to completely get out of your system, and it can take up to a whole year for the hormone to completely leave your system and for your periods to go back to whatever they were going to be if you had not taken the shot at all.

There is no harm in starting Clomid at this point. I would talk to your doctor about prescribing you some. The Clomid is only taken for 5 days at a time, so it's not going to affect your fibroids much. There is a chance, now that you're off hormones, that the fibroids could grow, but given your age and desire for another pregnancy I would definitely pursue it.

How much longer 'till I c my period. So it is better to have my doctor prescribe me the clomid

Unfortunately it is impossible to know when your period will return.

For most people, the hormone leaves their system within 3 months after their last shot, but for some women the hormone can persist in their system (and keep preventing hormones) for up to 12 months after their last shot.

All that being said, you were pregnant, had a baby 14 months ago, and have been taking the Depo shot, so you haven't had a "natural" cycle in quite some time. This irregularity may be what your body is going to do now that all the hormones are out.

If you are wanting to get pregnant, I would definitely talk to your doc about getting some bloodwork done to make sure all is well, and start some Clomid. I would call the doc rather than wait for your period to come back, because we have no idea when your period is coming back.

She did blood work in September should I do one again b4 she start me on clomid

What did she say about your bloodwork in September?

What did she say about starting the Clomid?

Ask Your Own OB GYN Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Everything was fine and I never ask her about the Clomid.

Ah I see.

I personally as a gynecologist have no problems with letting my patients start Clomid without waiting for a period, if they are someone who does not have regular periods.

I would recommend you check with your doc about how best to proceed with the Clomid.
