thank you for writing to HCM
If you are planning a pregnancy its a good drug, safe as its being used over the last 4 decades and almost no major side effects reported

Ovacare is prescribed to help the formation of the eggs in the ovary

Modus - medroxy progesterone acetate is given for a withdrawal bleed in women having irregular cycles

You can use the drugs depending on your problem, if its fertility related then siphene is a better option.
if its only to deal with irregular periods then - other medications like the combined estrogen and progesterone pill may be suggested

hope to have answered your query

The blood tests are fine

The ultrasound suggest polycystic ovaries

you can try out one more cycle with siphene
if you do not get pregnant then i will suggest you do extended tests of your hormones and a fasting blood sugar and fasting insulin

hello again

I think you should follow the instructions of your gynaecologist and believe in the treatment you take too

All the medications prescribed in appropriate doses are usually safe and have no major side effects
If however you are not convinced and have noted any problems after the medication please discuss with your consultant so that the doctor is aware

wish you all the best

Hi I m having problems with my scalp. It s been very flaky sore and the more I itch the more I loose hair. I ve been taking the POP progesterone only pill lately and I don t know if that it a cause of it. Also I wear weaves but have done nothing different to my normal routine! I haven t changed shampoos or hair oils. Also I went to the doctors and he gave me a shampoo beginning with D what was prescribed but it has made no difference. I have a busy lifestyle but still try to balance my eating and exercising. Any suggestions? J

To who it may concern, I appreciate your help a lot. I could not find the answer online, and I currently don t have a personal physician to ask. I am eighteen years old, and I plan to go back on my combined birth control oral contraceptive called ,Tri-Sprintec. I have a question that worries me a lot. If this birth control pills are triphasic, have three different phases, each week has a different amount of progesterone hormone, so if I throw up in one hour after taking a pill and it is most likely missed and take next one from the same phase, will it reduce the effectiveness of my birth controls because of taking,in this case, six instead of seven pills of that phase according to the whole cycle ?

I saw my physician on Thursday of last week. From Monday, my beta had only gone from 385 to 556, and my progesterone went down from 10.1 to 8.8. I have been having severe cramps but no bleeding. According to my calculations/ovulation I should be no less than 5 weeks 5 days right now, but the transvaginal u/s they did on Thursday put me at 4 weeks 3 days...we re 5-7 days off. He made me cancel a road trip, because he didn t want me on the road when things went south . Does anyone have any experience with this? I miscarried with a blighted ovum around 9 months ago, and am concerned it s happening again.
