Depo provera and implanon

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and implanon

depo-provera

why do you ask??? (BY the way, i've seen women get pg. on Loestren(sp?) and some others.) Depo is the only one i've heard of ppl not getting pg. easily on.
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've been using Depo-provera for 1 year and 4 months, and have been aware of not staying on it for longer than 2 years due to the risk of bone loss that comes with longterm use. I've looked into Implanon but fear that because it hasn't been out for too long, the side affects have yet to be truely determined and bone loss may also be found with the use of Implanon.
I HAD MY THIRD SON IN SEPT AND HAD ONE DEPO SHOT TO TIDE ME OVER TILL THE DOC WAS AVAILABLE TO GIVE ME THE IMPLANON. AFTER 4 WEEKS OF GETTING THE SHOT, ALL THE SIDE EFFECTS STARTED AGAIN. SO I WOULD SAY ITS PRETTY CERTAIN THE DEPO CAUSES THIS This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/228762'>can depo provera cause ibs symptoms?</a>.
I have similar concerns. I've had Depo and now on my second Implanon and am being treated for hypothyroidism. I am very much questioning whether there is a causal link.. My first instinct was that the Depo caused my thyroid issues. However, I read one post that says it's more a case of the hypothyroid symptoms being "masked" by the BC hormonal treatment - and that it was there all along (just getting worse because it's untreated).
Hi there, I know exactly how you are feeling!!! And I also know those feeling of feeling like a complete lunatic. I had implanon put in exactly 1 year ago, and sunk into a hole of depression (which I didn't realise at the time and just kept battling on) then the anxiety attacks happened but I didn't know what they were either and thats the only reason my doctor found out what was going on.. i thought i was having a heart attack or something! lol..
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.
I was on Depo for 12 years and I was off of it for a year and a half and I never got my period back. I then got the implanon and I think that it broke because i have all of the symptoms of pregnancy. i think that I am 3 weeks. I have had 3 negative tests but I think that it is too early to get a positive result. can anyone give me some answers?
implanon and depo provera are similar in the amt of hormones it releases into your body....both methods will stop periods eventually. I was on depo but AF stopped after my first shot so i'd think it would stop after getting implanon rather quickly. try a test and you can always talk to your doctor and have them do a blood test to rule pregnancy out.
Ever since, I've looked into Depo and have seen people get loss of fertility, cancer, bone marrow loss, and several other big long term issues which only raised my concerns more. I want to switch my birth control method. What i like about depo: 3 months between, I have a terrible memory. No period. High effectiveness, and after the shot, no worries So how does an implant birth control such as implanon compare?
Thursday (October 10) I was given the surprise of a lifetime when I went into my primary for one problem and walked out with another. I had been placed on the Depo-Provera shot the same day I had miscarried my (now) second child. I was only around 9 weeks along (both times) so despite being devastated I had for some time expected that might be the end result.
im 20 yrs old and i have been on the depo shot for a month and i have been on my period for 16 days when will it stop??? and is it normal ???
there are several birth controls that can stop menstration. Depo-provera and implanon for sure will keep the body from making the uterine lining and therefore no menstration.
I was on the depo provera shot and I was due for my shot Aug 15-27 my boyfriend and I were sexually active we didn't use protection my period was due on the 30th and I am 28 days late. I took 3 pregnancy test and they came out negative I'vebeen having some symptoms like food cravings, neasous, lower back pains, tender boobs, I had a discharge about a week after my missed period.
Im using depo provera i loved it and had no side effects except my period being irregular the first 3 months
If you are on depo provera or the implant in the arm (implanon) you won't have a period. with the depo once you stop it may take up to a year for it to completely leave your system and then you can concieve. I'm not sure how long the implanon implant takes to wear off.
Of course the barier methods such as conoms and diaphragm are effective too. Something such as the Implanon and Depo Provera should work fine too. Good luck!
Have you ever considered any other form of birth control such as Depo Provera, Nuva Ring, implanon, etc.? I have been on nuva ring for years with no complaints on this end. No weight gain or side effcts. I hope you find one that suits you perfect. Good Luck!!!
i had problems with acne and hairiness hence different pills, and i experienced depression and moodiness on different pills. Nuvaring ( I got continuous uti infections from having this inside me) Implanon- no sex drive at all ( relationship issues due to that) Depo provera injection worked for me was happy with this but I'm not sure its suitable to my above conditions.
(24 hours after the pill, 13 weeks after depo provera, immediately after IUD removal, immediately after stopping condom use) Long-term methods for this poll would include the hormonal IUD, Depo Provera (the shot), and Implanon or other birth control implants. I'm considering the copper IUD under daily and non-hormonal because it does not interrupt the ovulatory cycle.
Most types of hormonal contraception are immediately reversible including the pill, IUD, and Implanon. This is not necessarily true of Depo Provera. Depo Provera in some women may result in a delayed return of menstruation, but usually not greater than one year. Best regards, Dr.

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 was on Depo provera injection for over 2 years, recently came off that and went onto the Cerazette Pill. Have stopeed taking that following extreme headaches. Went 7 weeks with no period but have now been bleeding for over 4 weeks. Is this normal? I get the occasional day when the bleeding is light and I think it's going to end, then the next day I've got cramps and it feels like the start of a new period. Please help!
It may be that you didn't ovulate this cycle and so your period is taking longer, OR if you are on any type of long-acting birth control such as the Implanon or depo provera--then spotting is normal. If you were my patient, I would probably recommend that you take a seven day prescription of progesterone, and wait to see what happened after that. If the bleeding persisted, I would want to consider a saline ultrasound. to evaluate your uterus and ovaries better. Good luck!
Oral contraceptives, patches, Nuva ring are all estrogen plus progestin hormonal methods. Depo Provera/Implanon are progestin only methods IUD--both copper and Mirena are devices that are inserted into the uterus. Here is an interesting site that shows how to use a diaphragm: http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to/video/how-to-use-a-diaphragm-for-birth-control-193034/ It might work well for you since you may not want to be on something continuously.
