Irregular Menstruation Fertility

Can I have IVF Treatments, if I have Irregular Menstrual Cycles?

Yes, our fertility clinics can start IVF treatments by inducing one's menstrual cycle, even if the patient has irregular menstrual cycles or no menstruation at all. Since it is not quite normal to have no period, our doctors would first take a look at your case and examine your medical history.

To start your cycle, you may be prescribed a medication called Provera (a.k.a Medroxyprogesterone). This medication is derived from the female hormone progesterone and is often used to bring on a normal menstrual cycle in women who menstruated normally in the past. This medication is also used with advanced maternity age patients, who no longer have their monthly periods, but wish to have IVF treatments with egg donor.

Provera is typically taken for about a week. Once the IVF patient stops taking Provera, she should receive her period 5 to 7 days later. For the sake of example, if you want to start your IVF cycle on the first day of the month, you will need to start Provera on the 18th. Once you go off Provera on the 25th, you should receive your period no later then 2nd day of the month. It is also fine, if you get your period comes a little earlier. This should not greatly affect your IVF cycle.

Remember, you will start your ovulation medication (or egg donor recipient medication) on the first day of your menstrual cycle.
