Depo provera and diarrhea

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and diarrhea

depo-provera

Hi there, My question is, although I have hypothyroidism and quite frequently have heart palpatations, and this is not necesserily due to my eltroxin levels being to high, Can Depo-Provera create a situation whereby you mimic all the symptoms of hypothyroidism, Lately my heart palpatations are more frequent and my levels are in normal range at the moment, This does no happen all the time though only seems to be when I should be on a cycle. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
I took depo provera for about 6 years, starting in 2000. Just over three months after I stopped taking the shots I developed a nodule in my neck which was eventually diagnosed as thyroid cancer. I have absolutely no history of thyroid problems of any kind in family and I had had no problems before the depo.
I am suffering from depression and anxiety due to depo-provera (already talked to an OB, and she said that it HAS to be from that), and I am barely coping. It's been 6 days and I'm already ready to give up on myself, and I see no end in sight. I'm losing hope. I wish I had never taken it. I'm also suffering from fatigue and headaches. My head feels so heavy, I can barely hold it up.
Prior to that I had no menstrual problems. Now, right before and after my period, I have cramps, diarrhea, nausea, and really long cyles. I was wondering if anyone else experienced this.
Believe me I didn't want to go on birth control I wanted to have a baby, but when you're on depo, you don't ovulate, and since I had a cyst from the depo I wasn't ovulating even if the depo was out of my system, she put me on bc and the first month on it, is the first month I ovulated in 5 1/2 years and I got preggo!
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 just started depo only been a month and i am having problems i have wat feels like labor pains in my stomach diarrhea nausea terrible freakin headaches my back hurts in the lower left side and can't eat nothing that i don't feel like i ate a hippo. 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..
I got preggo on depo and he is 19 months now and he is healthy and rambunkshus let me tell you!~ Anyways he did have a low birth weight i had him at 34 weeks almost 35 and he was 5 lbs 3 oz. I think if i would of went the full 38 to 40 weeks he would of been a big baby!!!
She told me to never eat anything white (except chicken). Well her advice worked. It's something about the Depo Provera and and inability to metabolize carbs while Depo is still hiding in your tissues. She told me to eat this way until I lost the weight I want, and that then I could eat bread, salad, and the foods I love again. She also said the weight will not come back, as the depo will be gone. So I look forward to that in another month or so. I have already lost 45 lbs!
To be sure go to a planned parenthood place or to her gynecologist and get a ultrasound done. You can get pregnant on the Depo Provera shot.
The doctor wasn't too interested in discussing those problems, just telling me about the Depo-Provera shot. I told her I wasn't sure about it and may wait a few cycles before taking it. Still haven't made up my mind.
I have had endo for over ten years now and after a few surgeries and depo provera i finally put my foot down along with my husband and said Enough is enough, i couldnt live like that any longer! so i started Lucrin in Jan and i've got my last injection in a few days time. I was terrified of going on it after reading side effects but...the hot flushes, night sweats, headaches and feeling pregnant lol are nothing compared to how much pain i was in before!
Well...I was just looking up my symptoms on the web and tada...found this page. I seem to have very similiar symptoms. I get chills/shakes at night and various times through out the day. My heart will beat really hard, especially at night. but various times during the day as well. I am sick to my stomach often. It's worse at night, but right now as I type this during the day I feel very sick and nausiated. I was diagnosed with IBS...but never had symptoms like these before.
and it didn't help the cramps or the heavy bleeding. went back and was put on the depo provera shot and my mom asked the doctor what could be causing me to have severe cramps and the weight loss. the doctor told my mom that i was aneroxic and bulemic and that i should see a pyschatrist. after that being said i decided to not go back to that obygn after i stopped taking the depo provera shot because that wasn't helping the pain either. at that point in my life i was loosing hope.
Hello just alittle about myself, I am 26 year old female with 3 kids. This past August I recently had a miscarriage and D&C. I was 10 weeks along but I had a partial molar pregnancy. Right after my D&C I received the depo provera shot because my doc said I couldn't get pregnant for a year. Well in mid September all my symptoms started and just hit me out of nowhere one day. One night I just started having a panic attack out of no where.
Part of the problem might be the depo-provera, it can have all kinds of side effects. Also, have you seen a chiropractor, I know it sounds funny, but, when all tests, etc have come back normal, sometimes this is the only answer. If you have a lot of vertebrae that are out of alignment, they can press on nerves, and such and cause all kinds of trouble.
thinks either adenomyosis or endo, but she told me if yaz doesnt help the next step might be the depo provera shot I dont know much about it but that may be a possibility for you, or possibly even lupron depo she suggested, even though I think you get many side effects from it. It's like a fake menopause! Well good luck lemme know how things works out!
I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
I spend a lot of my free time reading webmd and medhelp, plus my mom works in a clinic and my mil is a doctor. One girl who won't listen to me and probably should is on the depo provera shot. She's been having severe cramping and long periods. I told her she is probably having a reaction to the shot, but she won't do anything about it. It could be nothing, but I'd hate to see something happen to her because she has a little son. I guess you can't help everyone!
For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
The only thing I have seen that helps the pain is an herbal wrap that you heat up(you can get them @ walmart), and I lay that on my stomach. I have been on the depo shot for four years, I have asked if this is a contributing factor and have been told no. I have no kids. I hope someone comes up with an explanation, because I am too young to be giving up on my sex life!
The only thing was there was no positive test, I had one very faint positive line but that never showed up on the other 8 I took. The doctor did a urine and blood and it came back negative it was a 4??? anyway she still was worried for tubal pregnancy so I went for an ultrasound. Turns out I have a thickened uterus. Still sent me to a obgyn who did a bunch of tests to make sure no early menopause (perfectly healthy) and did a biopsy for cancer (not back yet).
Ive been on the Depo Provera shot for the last 2 months. I have a doctors appointment, but I am very anxious. Please help!
I also saw the scar tissue on the back of my uterus. It looks minimal. Then we discussed the choices of hormone therapy.... depo provera and lupron. We went through the pros and cons and I decided just to give lupron a try, despite my reservations. I have heard that it has helped more than the depo provera, so here goes. I got the shot today and also pills that are the add-back therapy. Hopefully I don't have too many side effects. We'll see. I'll post later on if I need to rant!
iv always had a high sex drive but just recently in the past month my sex drive has seemed to dissapear i just started depo about 2 weeks ago and i havent had my period in a month my bf is worried because we used to have sex all the time and now we hardly ever have it only like 1 time every other week i dont know whats wrong and im kind of worried.
I just had an abortion using the ru-486 pills, and got the depo provera shot at the same time. I know because of the abortion im suppose to bleed for about 2 weeks. but ive been bleeding for a month now, heavy at times. at times big blood clumps. Is this normal. is it because of the abortion or the shot? will the bleeding stop? i also get depressed at times, i feel tired, i think cuz of loss of blood, irritated. im sure from the depo provera. is there anything that can counteract this shot?
She said she took SEVERAL HPT and 2 blood ALL NEGATIVE. Finally when her Doc gave her a RX for provera to start her period she was tested one more time 12/9 almost a month later she FINALLY GOT a positive blood test. Her Docs theory is she just ovulated VERY late in her cycle that month!!! How crazy is that!!? It took almost a WHOLE month for her to show positive for pregnant. I mean you are alittle further than a month though. Have you got an ultrasound?
I have been on Depo provera for 6 years and have not had a period the entire time. These symptoms aren't related to the surgery...they all were happening prior. What do you think it could be?
I just last month, after 3 years of misery and laporscopic surgeries, and a colonoscopy got the right doctor. I am on the depo provera shot and that has made a world of difference. At my time of menstration, I would have debilitating cramping and severe diarrhea. I often would have loss of bowel control with no warning. I went to a specialist at a women's hopsital in P'burgh and thank GOD I did. I will end up with a complete hystorectomy at some point but not yet.
