I tried Depo provera once and the second tome i was suppose to get the shot I decided not to. If you dont get the shot again after the fist time using it can you get pregnant right away if you having unprotected sex?
i have tried everything, from lupron, to laparoscopies, to yaz, to smoking marijuana - currently i am on Depo Provera and have been for the past year and a half. I am noticing a lot of side affects from this as time goes on, and unfortunately for me this has been the only thing that even remotely helps, and i still have a lot of pain.
i was on the minipill for two years i am not getting my period now doctor wants to put me on depo provera she claims after awhile the affectiveness of the minpill wears off and depo would be best for me being that it is also a progesteron only contraceptive and will continue not getting my period am afraid because of all the bad things i hear about it any suggetions?

I was on Depo Provera for about 8 years when my husband and I decided to try for another baby. I received my last injection in September 2006. I was pregnant by March 07 but miscarried at 5 weeks. We waited until December to try again and just miscarried that one at 9 weeks. After having 2 healthy children with no pregnancy complications, I am led to believe that this is an effect of the Depo injections.
In fact, one time my mom and her friend took me to the clinic and I ran out because I did not want the depo shot. Then and guard and cop chased me and took me back to the clinic, where they forced the depo in me. They had to hold me down to give me the shot because I put up a huge fight. I suffered alot from the shot. I am still tired and nauseous, I can't lose weight and I have painfull periods. This stuff is poisonous and should be taken off the market for good.
I have missed my last shot and i have been having bleeding and spotting and pain for five straight weeks. I am so tired of it and I am tired; I feel crummy. Could I be pregnant? I have an appointment with planned parenthood next tuesday but waiting is so stressful. If im pregnant I need to know now!!!
I was given a shot of depo-provera yesterday...and when I asked about side affects all I was told was nausea, headache, and dizziness. After reading quite a few articles online, it seems there are a lot more serious side affects than I was led to believe. I've been having lots of chest pain and shortness of breath, but the doctor doesn't seem to think it's related to the shot.
I am in a group where all the women are trying to conceive after the depo provera. Many have been trying to conceive for years, and no luck. And it seems like those who do conceive have miscarriages soon after. Its like 80% of the women who get pg have a miscarriage. Is this linked to the depo? Age? Im 22 and am trying to conceive #2. (my son is 6 now) I am so scared that it might happen to me.
but yeah alot of people have told me that it could very well be the depo i have had mutiple tests done and even blood work all came back negative. and i have a period every month so im confused as to is it my period coming and im bloated and therefore have a gut like or if its the all the new hormones inside of me doing weird things or what. i mean the doctors everyone says i would get my period if i was pregnant.
Initial blood tests showed my cortisol levels 4 times normal. Been on Depo Provera for about 12 yrs. Stopped last summer and haven't gotten my period back. Over the last 4 years I becan to develop symptoms of Cushing's including weight gain (I've never in my life been overweight - then all of the sudden I was), apple-shaped body, thin arms & legs, moon face, flushing + diarrhea, and the Hallmark sign - the bufallo hump (fatty lump on the base of the back of the neck).
I was one it for almost 2 years and loved it and then all of the horrible side effects started... and when I say horrible, imagine the most extreme moodiness you've ever witnessed and then multiple it by 100... pain, trips to the ER to make it bearable... vaginal dryness so bad that my skin split open every time I peed... I mean, it was really awful. Like I said, it was great for 2 years, and then one morning I woke up and kablam!
Stopped it for 2 years I was completely normal after stopping it. I had my daughter and now back on depo. I almost never bleed the only time I bleed is when its a week before I'm supposed to get the shot. Also they say you can get the shot 1 week before your supposed to so you avoid bleeding which works for me as soon as I get it I stop... Guess everyones different... I wonder why it worked this time and not the last...
I have a 7mm protrusion coming from my pituitary that in all clinical reality should be called a tumor. There is also a void in my pituitary that was left from "old tumor that out grew it's blood supply". I have been dealing with the railroad spike in the head headaches for years. They are now controlled with medication. I have been experiencing severe joint pain a week before my period and as soon as menstruation starts it is gone. Completely.
You girls have to discontinue Depo Provera at once and I highly recommend never putting any hormones into your bodies ever again. I have experienced a living nightmare from Depo Prover for the past three years. After I got the Depo shot I went home and researched on the web about the drug. I cried for three hours in fear that that could happen to me. What happened was worse. Five days after the shot a menstrual cycle started that would not cease. It wasn't a normal cycle.
Well, had the first Depo-Provera shot today. Hopefully my body adjusts alright and this helps with keeping the endo at bay. Has anyone used the Depo for endometriosis? What kind of experiences did you have? I'm kinda curious, but also thinking that maybe I jumped into the waters before seeing if there were sharks. :) (To reiterate, I was given three choices: oral BC, Depo, or Lupron. Opted against the Lupron for the vast scary side effects.
Im 28 and have never been pregnant slightly overweight but not too concerred and getting it back down periods were always regular and pain free went on for birth control, my husband has 1 child already and decided to start are own family.
I had one shot of depo and never had it again back in aug 2010, I have been trying to conceive since then which has been no success.. well 3 weeks ago I went into the emergency room with severe pain in my right side, turns out i had a cyst the size of a softball on my right ovary that ruptured as soon as they flipped my ovary over in surgery.
you can always call your pharmacist and ask to make sure. My husband and I are TTC and I took the Depo shot twice and stopped 11/04 and then started BCP till 8/05 and havent had a period since except with provera. I think the Depo is still in my system and is screwing everything up. I hope the provera works for you and best of luck with the clomid.
The time varies in every woman and can be from 2-3 months to 12-18 months .The length of time you use Depo-Provera usually has no effect on how long it takes you to become pregnant. If you are not on any contraceptive you can get pregnant any time. Few common causes of abdominal pain with spotting are early pregnancy, uterine fibroids and mittelschmerz. Mittelschmerz is abdominal pain which may be felt during the process of ovulation .It is often accompanied with spotting.
After reading some of the posts I feel better. I went on depo back in 97 and decided to get off of it June of 2007. Reason being, I started to notice my anxiety levels were high, one minute I was fun and the next depressed and miserable. I would get upset and mad easily...nothing I did seemed to make me feel like I use to when I was younger. I felt like I was going crazy. Within the 10 year time frame I was on Prozac for a year or two because I felt depressed, lost... crazy.
I wonder what the difference between the two depo shots are and I wonder why my gyno recommended the other depo shot if the depo-subq provera 104 shot is specific for endo ?
I will never go on Depo Provera again. My daughter was on Depo Provera at college, and discontinued the shot and has lost that weight and is thin again. Fitday.com's free site has helped me keep up with my carb intake, and also tells me how many calories, how much fat etc. I use. It does this automatically when I put my food in for the day. Also Magic Bus has a forum where you can learn how to lose weight quick and even post on a challenge to keep you honest and responsible.

But everyone is different and reacts differently to depo. Some people even get pregnant while on depo or once they stop it. Usually it stays in your system from 12-18 months. I stopped depo in Nov 04 and started BCP's to regualte my periods. Then in Aug 05 I stopped BCP's to TTC. Because the depo was still in my system and I just got of BCP's I didnt have a period without the help of provera until Dec 05. I now am almost 21 weeks pregnant.
I'm 15 and my momma put me on depo and i thought it was safe and so did my boyfriend but like weeks after we had sex i started feel funny i took a test it said no but i keep feeling bad like morning sickness and head aches and others.. and i' m eating more den i really do is it just a side effect or what? and i got my second shot wit out check is that going to hurt the baby if so... i really not ready for no kid in my life but i did what i did and now i got to take care of it if so..!!
Is this all normal my doctor just gave me pills for an upset stomach n pain and said the urinne test came back that i wasnt pregnant because they also did not give me a pregnancy test before they put me on depo..
