Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Two weeks is a too long time to delay the periods.Still if she wants then she will have to start taking hormone tablets progesterone- Tab. Norethisterone 10mg twice daily at least five days before her due date and will have to continue it until she wants her periods back.

Have complex hyperplasia without atypia, went through with one course of very low dose hormorne after first biopsy. Second biopsy had same result. Im 53.. and have not had a period for 2 years. My fsh level taken last month was 80. Dr. recommend hysterectomy or another high dose round of hormones. Don t feel comfortable with hysterectomy right now. No history of cancer in my family and no history of any female issues. Do you think I should try one more course of therapy? Filled prescription for megestrol 40mg for 3 months, but have not started them. Not sure which way to go?? What side effects will I experience with the megestrol? Would I have to have estrogen after the hysterectomy?

Hello. My name is Ms. Eleanor. I have a question about certain affects I am having after having taken Cipro, Progesterone and Doxyclone. I took the Cipro for 3 days only because I didn t like the feelings it was giving me, but I continued with the rest of my prescription for 10 days. The thing is I am into day 15 and I am feeling horrible. Tingling in my fingers and toes, headache, nausea, upset stomach, extreme fatigue, anxiety, muscle twitch and now that I went online and read all of the horror stories about Cipro (fluroide toxic), I am scared to Death I am about to be afflicted by a death diagnosis. Please help me.
