Question: hello doc,
I am ttc for quite sometime now. doc prescribed ccq 50 day 3-7 and susten sr 200 (twice a day) from day 16-25. this is my 3rd round. I still have 5 days to complete the susten dose and I'm bleeding today. What could be the possible reason behind this early period? I am supposed to get period only after completing the dose, but why did this happen? What to do?

Brief Answer:
Pregnancy should be ruled out

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Bleeding can occur on Susten either if preferences is there or if the dose is inadequate for the supporting the uterine lining, thus leading to periods.
I will suggest you to get a urine pregnancy test.
If negative, then the dose should be increased after consultation with the doctor.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

hi doc, I tested for pregnancy and it's a negative. My periods lasted for two days and not heavy at all. However, I am continuing with my susten dosage which is due to end tomorrow. I ll visit my doc on friday. What should be my next step doc? Will I get pregnant ever? My cysts vanished long back and my ovaries are perfect. I am 29 years old. Is it normal to get periods while on progesterone?

Brief Answer:
Ovulation induction

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
You can discuss with your doctor to start ovulation induction drugs to help you achieve conception.
Bleeding can occur on progesterone, if the dose is inadequate or if the progesterone is taken for a longer duration.

I was mus-diagnosed with PCOS and was given glucophage and inofolic acid. I ve since gained weight and my skin has become even worse. I was on 500mg and then increase to 1000mg and then i went to my original gynae who then told me to stop taking it as my insulin levels were normal and there was no need for the other gynae to put me on those meds. i m now on Clomid as i m TTC but i have endometriosis and low progesterone. Will this help?

Hello, My husband and I have been TTC for almost 2 years now on our own (we said we would get doctor help with it once we passed the 2 year mark in 2 months). My AF is normally very regular and I have been using home ovulation tests to pin point my peak fertility . Recently I have lost my medical insurance coverage and I am waiting to be put on my husband s. By problem is... I am 2 weeks late on my period and I have taken 5 hpt that all turned out negative. I have been having nausea, stomach aches, fatigue , occasional strong sense of smell, food aversions and cravings, and frequent urination . I did go to the ER 2 weeks ago for severe nausea, migraine, and slight dehydration . They ended up sending me home with some anti-nausea meds and said I had just had headache. They did do a urine pregnancy test and it came back negative, but that was 5 days before my missed period. They also did a CAT scan but didn t see anything. I really want to know if I m pregnant or not, but I am still waiting on my husband s job to cover me under his insurance so I can t really go into the doctor for a blood test. What do you think? ---Amanda
