I was wondering if I use provera will it cause complications later when I wanted to get pregnant? And how long does it stay in your system? Will it hurt the baby?
Provera, medroxyprogesterone, is a synthetic female hormone. It will not cause complications later on in life if you get pregnant, provided you have stopped taking it.
It is probably a good idea to wait for one month after stopping Provera before trying to conceive.
Provera has been assigned FDA pregnancy category X. This means that Medroxyprogesterone can cause birth defects and should not be used if you are pregnant.
Medroxyprogesterone has an apparent half-life of about 30 hours.
This means that every 30 hours, half of the previous amount of Provera in the body disappears.
For example, if you took 10mg of Provera in the morning , 30 hours later 5mg of Provera will be left in your body. Another 30 hours later 2.5mg will be left, and so forth until there is 0mg left in your body.
