Have you been taking it for Amenorrhea?

You may have your period anywhere from between 3 to 7 days. Sometimes it may take up to 14 days. If you don't get one by then, please see your doctor.

not sure what amenorrhea is taking it because period stopped for 2 years and I'm too young for any menopause

Amenorrhea is when you don't get your period regularly, when you are supposed to. So yes, you do have amenorrhea.

It too, was prescribed for me for amenorrhea. I was told the SOP for me is to take a pregnancy test first, when my period is late. If the test comes back negative, take 5-7 days of medroxyprogesterone and then I should get my period. Repeat every time my period is late. I'm only 37 y/o, too young for menopause, but sometmes I don't menstruate for 4 months (w/o the medication). I've had all kinds of tests,everything comes back negative. I don't want to continue this way. Is there some other test you suggest?

I am going through something similiar. I am 26 and I have a very irregular period. The thing is the entire time that I have been on the Medroxypregesterone, I was spotting, to the point that I had to wear a pad. I took my last pill on Saturday, and here I started bleeding very heavy. I don't know how long this is going to last, but I am tired of it.
