was on medroxyprogesterone to get my period. my last month on it I didn't get my period. My OB doctor told me to call in 3 months if I don't get it. What will he put me on to help me get it again or do I have some kind of condition? This will be 3 months. I am only 39 and I think it might be perimenopause or menopausal but everyone keeps saying I'm too young. I do have some symptoms. Night sweats I also do get cramps like I'm going to get my period but I don't.
You are young to be in pre-menopause. An ultrasound scan and hormonal assay will help make the diagnosis. The possibility of endometrial hyperplasia needs to be ruled out. Progestins may help to get withdrawal bleeding. Consult your gynaecologist for an evaluation.
Hope this helps.
