  • by


Hi i’m dr. marks florida fertility expert and welcome to fertility tv in this episode we’re going to be talking about provera and its impact on fertility so if you’ve thought about provera and what it can do for you then stay tuned hi i’m dr. marks flog the fertility expert and i worked with couples from all over the world and locally here in san diego helping them

Get pregnant naturally i often get questions and for whatever reason i’ve been getting a lot of questions recently about the use of provera and fertility so let me answer a little bit about it in a previous video i did discuss the use of progesterone on fertility treatments and just so there’s no confusion provera is progesterone so kind of trigger eight some of

The things that i have mentioned in the past the first thing is to recognize if you need it so you do need to do some testing to see if you have a deficiency of progesterone especially in the second half of your cycle and if it would be important and impactful and useful for you then second the common question is when to use it so you know i’m not my preference

When it comes to fertility treatments is doing things naturally some people might view the use of prevert or progesterone as natural and some might not i think it really just depends on how it’s used and what form so once you do figure out if you need it with some testing and you do decide that that’s something that you need you do need to consult with whatever

Practitioner you’re working with to have that conversation about when’s the best time to use it for them or for you and how to incorporate it for me i think the best time to use is before you get pregnant because you really already want the progesterone to be in your system to help hold a pregnancy so that’s in a perfect scenario but often times it doesn’t happen

So worst case scenario you can add it later i just don’t find it to be as effective the only or one of the main drawbacks from using something like provera or progesterone is that if you do put it in after you ovulate oftentimes it’s going to prevent you from menstruating so you will have to take a pregnancy test every cycle to see if you are pregnant to decide if

You come off of it or not it can also give you side effects and and the side effects depending on your dosage can be great and make you feel like you’re pregnant but you can’t trust that because of the increased progesterone you’re going to have symptoms as if you are pregnant increase breast tenderness bloating fatigue potentially nausea so it’s not to be confused

And i wouldn’t get overly excited about being pregnant if you have those until you actually take a pregnancy test so hopefully that information was useful and gave you a little bit more information on how you can and potentially use provera
