Chemical D-N-C

My doctor is trying a chemical D-N-C. Has anyone else done this? Will I have bleeding for the whole month I am on the pills? Because this is a hormone, will it affect my emotions?

chemical D-N-C

Hey there. First a question....what is he giving you to make you bleed? What hormones?

They tried a chem d-n-c on me with provera. I was on it for 10 days and they said that between 2 days and 2 weeks I would have a large "bleed".

If you aren't bleeding now, you "shouldn't " bleed while taking it. I spotted some, but I think that was b/c I was on it when I would have been having a period. My SIL did the same, but she was bleeding when she took it and it didn't stop her bleeding.

I was ok? on it. I was a little up and down, but nothing major. My SIL said she didn't like herself from day 5-10 on it. Everyone is different.

the one thing that I did have was a headache. Not pounding...just always there.

Good luck and let me know how it works for you.

IN HIM,

Dawn <><

Chemical D-N-C

Hi there

I had a chemical DNC - 200 mg. of Promerin (i think that was the name) a day. Took for 2 days......thought I was going to GO NUTS !!!! Called the Dr. back, she said to cut the dosage back to 100 mg. a day.....took that for 2 days.....a little better, but there is no way I could take that stuff. I was just a nutcase !!

Ended up having the D&C anyways in May ........and a TAH in Sept.

Best of luck to ya !!!!

Chemical D-N-C

The doctor put me on 200mg Prometrium for ten days, then off ten days, then back on it for 10 more days. He just did not explain anything to me at the office, and he had given me so much Valium that I was not really thinking clear enough to ask. I called him back the next day, and he said that I should not bleed until the ten days that I am off the pills. He still did not explain if this will make me have a really heavy period or not. He said that the bleeding I did on the first day was from the biopsy I had in his office that day. I am glad that someone else had done this and not had any bad side effects. So far, three days, I have not had a headache or any other side effects. I just had never heard of anyone else having this treatment. Thank you so much for letting me know about your experiences.
