depo-provera

I am getting my wisdom teeth out and the oral surgeon is giving me an IV of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>antibiotic</span>s to help with the healing after surgery. I am on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> birth control shot and I had heard that antibiotics can effect birth control before. Is this true? Should I use a back-up form of birth control, and if so, for how long?
On Dec. 5th,2003 i received my first shot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span>. In the month of Jan. I spoted for almost 3 weeks straight, and for two days in the month of Feb.On March 6th,2004 i missed my second shot.On the 15, i felt my baby move for the first time ,and i am just starting to have pregnancy symptoms like sleepiness, frequent urination.I also startd my period again after missing my shot. I still continue to feel my baby on a regular basis.
Hi there, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>antibiotic</span>s don't affect <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> birth control like they do with other forms of birth control. You can safely take the antibiotics as advised. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. For more queries and assistance visit a gynecologist.I sincerely hope it helps. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
My girlfriend started using the depo-provera shot about a month ago. We abstained from sex for a week after the injection just to be safe. Two weeks after the injection we had to make a visit to her family practice doctor because we had a hunch that she had a bladder infection. We were right. The doctor prescribed her to take 250 mg of Ciprofloxacin twice daily and of course Phenazopyridine for the pain.
I am wondering if any one else is going through <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> withdrawals? I was on it for 9 years and recently me and my husband decided to go off of it since we knew that this form of birth control can take up to 18 months if you are ttc. i was due for my shot in April and when the time came I went to my doctor to discuss getting off of it and the possible side effect or problems that I might encounter. He basically assured me that nothing will happen because I did so well while I was on it.
I wasn't planning on using any birth control after I had Lily, we were just gonna go with natural family planning. Well at my doc appt today he suggested the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> shot may help with milk production since I'm having an issue with it due to anemia. I went ahead and got the shot becuase I figured it was worth trying to see if it WILL help and with the anemia problems right now it's probably best that I elminate as much risk of pregnancy as possible for awhile.
After being on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> for 1 year, I decided to discontinue use and switch to the pill. I decided to be single (and not sexually active) for a while, so I decided to wait until I got my period to start taking the pill. The only problem is that I STILL haven't had a period! It's been 6 or 7 months since I stopped getting the shots. I had normal periods while on the shot, and before I was on the shot, but once I stopped getting it my periods vanished...
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span>. I think the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> is still in my system and is screwing everything up. I hope the provera works for you and best of luck with the clomid.
Does <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>antibiotic</span>s in gonorrhea treatment render the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> shot inaffective??? Ive heard that it affects pills but not the shot because it is already in your bloodstream. Is this true because im freaking out aboput getting pregnant!
I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> for 11 years. I would be due for my next shot on 9/27 but my Doctor has advised that I stop having it. She has been treating me for migraines and depression with Imitrex (when needed) and a daily dosage of Prozac of 10mg. The Imitrex thankfully, works, and the migraines have also been lessened by the Prozac.
antibiotics can make oral contraceptives less effective, but does not interact with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> injection.

So I've been getting the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> bith control injection for over a year now. I havn't had a period or spotting for about 6 months. I have recently caught some weird infection that is like a cross between a cold and the flu but my doctor says its some bacterial infection. So he prescribed me Zithromax (arithromycin) which is an antibiotic. I have been taking it for 3 days and all of a sudden now I have spotting.
Hi All, Im stuck here so thought i would turn here , sorry if it becomes long.
What you heard about antibiotics making birth control less effective was a common belief among health care providers, however research has shown that it may not, in fact, be valid for any type of hormonal birth control, including <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span>. With the exception of Rifampin-type <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>antibiotic</span>s, there is no conclusive evidence that commonly-prescribed antibiotics make hormonal contraceptives less effective.
If you are pregnant your baby is in somewhat in danger by you being injected with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> just a couple of months ago. I would make me an appointment at the local clinic or your ob/gyn. Explain to them what is going on. Obviously if your taking the shot you don't want to be pregnant. Your body has to be on a perfect hormonal balance for the egg to implant and survive.
Hi there, There have been few studies which have indicated that taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>antibiotic</span>s with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> may affect the effectiveness of depo.If you are receiving <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span>-provera injections to prevent pregnancy, you should use a backup method of birth control while taking an antibiotic, just to be extra safe. Consult a gynecologist for assistance and clarification. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
So I used to take the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> shot awhile back but i got off it due to the violent mood swings i was having; and I never got back on it and ending up having a kid, and then me n his father broke up and i never got another partner so I never needed to get back on birth control... Well I got with a new partner so I began taking the depo provera again and this time things are going smooth bled for the first 2 weeks and then the bleeding stopped.
Hello and hope you are fine. The birth control action of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> begins immediately after the first shot if given within the first five days of your menstrual period. depo shot can cause bleeding side effects as your body is adjusting to depo provera. Irregular bleeding/spotting and/or prolonged bleeding are common after receiving depo shot. Heartburn and nausea can be side effects of depo or could be other cases like gastro esophageal reflux, gastritis, food poisoning etc.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> { Started 5/20/2010, Last Shot 2/9/2012 } Before I started getting the depo provera Injections I always had a normal, slightly heavy period. Minimal cramping. After taking depo provera for 1 year I finally lost my periods.
I get pregnant pretty easily and was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span>, like the other ladies that was my only form of birth control, and I never got pregnant while on it and got pregnant just as I had before after I stopped it!! I gained a little bit of weight as well, you just have to be careful!!! Didn't know about it being less effective when on antibiotics, thanks martikadragoon!!!

Hello, If you stop getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> injections, your period usually returns within 3 to 10 months but sometimes it may take 12-18 mths. But since there is a history of unprotected intercourse, pregnancy needs to be ruled out. To be absolutely clear about the status of your pregnancy, I suggest you to test for pregnancy by a highly sensitive pregnancy test 10 days post ovulation with a sensitive ( 20 - 25 mIU ) pregnancy test.
Two months later I had a laparoscopy and a DNC done, after that I have been on Lupron than got put on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> birth control shots indefinitely, because the condition was so bad. So as of last March I have not had a period and have not ovulated that way I do not have severe pain and more scarring. Than starting this January I started had crippling severe back pain, so I made an appt. with an Orthopedic doctor. The very first appt.
I am sexually active & on the depo provera shot. My boyfriend & I were both tested & treated for chlamydia in late may. We had sex again a few days ago after about 2 weeks. When he ejaculated in me I had a burning sensation now, im getting yellowish discharge it doesnt really smell. I burned when I pee'd the first day after sex but not anymore although I have itching. Whats wrong with me?
If an infection is ruled out, a gynecologist can perform a laparoscopy or alternatively, attempt a trial of medical treatment with birth control pills, injection of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>depo</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>provera</span> or GnRH agonist for endometriosis. If the pain is resolved with medical treatment and infection was ruled out then it is most likely endometriosis and this is now an acceptable approach to treating endometriosis.
