Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera menstruation

depo-provera

Hello, If you stop getting Depo-Provera injections, your period usually returns within 3 to 10 months but sometimes it may take 12-18 mths..I suggest that you consult your gynecologist and get yourself examined to rule out other causes of amenorrhea like stress and anxiety, malnutrition, depression, overexercising, sudden weight loss or gain (obesity),thyroid disorders and hormonal imbalance due to polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS).
Hi. I had my last depo shot in august and I just finnished my first 10days of provera on oct. 4 and I still havent had a period yet. I know sometimes it can take up to 14 days after but Im well over my 14 days. So my question is why havent I had a period yet? And could it be that the shot is still in my system or is the provera meant to over-power it? Please Help?!
NOHARD, my mum did all the research, and was happiest with putting me on the Depo-Provera, so I do trust her decision. hnw121507, thank you, and I think I will continue it, at least for a while, the extreme period pain is gone, so that is a massive relief.
Hi ladies. My last depo provera shot ran out in november and i never got it renewed as i was having bad side effects and i wanted to come off all contraceptives to let my body sort itself out. Its now nearly april and i havnt had any signs of a period apart from stomach cramps now andagain. I was just wondering if anyone had any information for me as im getting a little bit worried/frustrated. Thanks in advance!
in the springtime, I was leaving home and I recieved my first Depo shot from the family doctor. (She explained to me depo was short term; i.e. two years). (Planned parenthood later explained at age 19 that Depo is safe for more than 2 years, "just take calcium/ d suppliments") That summer I started going to Planned Parenthood. I do not remember exactly when but I am sure it was June or July (still age 17) when this happened to me.
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.
Prior to previous pregnancies used depo provera followed by birth control pills (as I recognize that depo can stay in your system longer). Last depo provera injection was in April 2007. Used low-dose birth control pills June - August 2007. Last period (day 1) was September 2 after stopping birth control pills. No menstruation since that time. Negative pregnancy tests. Do you have any suggestions as to what may be causing the delayed menstruation?
i have been on depo shot for 6 yrs.i have now been off for 1yr.4months,my husband and i are trying to have a baby,by me being on shot so long do you think its still in my system the reason i havent gotten pregeant since ive been off the shot?
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 have had normal periods for the past 10-11 months, anywhere between 28 and 33 days long. Before that, I was on Depo Provera for 10+ years(I am 32), and did not have a single period after coming off of the Depo for about a year. But, as soon as the 1st one came, everything seemed to be back on track. Except for the fact that for 2-3 days right before my period(flow that only lasts 1-2 days), I have a red/brown discharge where I have to wear a pantyliner, but not heavy enough for a pad.
A few years ago, I was put on Depo Provera. I was taking this for about a year and only had 1 menstrual period in this entire time. I have heard that this is quite common, and it can really mess up your cycle etc. I stopped taking it and went back to the pill as soon as possible, and I was soon back to normal.
All came back negative. The dr put me on Provera for 5 days. Each time I take the pill, I have more bleeding which is normal (told by the doctor) then I'm back to spotting again. I wonder if this happened to anyone? does it sound normal? what else can I do to stop the bleeding? What additional test do I need to make sure I'm ok?
I have been on the Depo-provera for 10 years. I'm 27 now and have been married for 2 years. My next one is due on the 14th Feb 2012 the only time i have bleed was when I had cell's removed after another bad 'smear' test. I really want a baby my husband has 5 kids but we dont see them much (not out of choice!) Iam really scared now that I'm not going to be able to have a baby and wont beable to be the wife I want to be....
In addition, a woman’s genital tract should be free of any abnormalities to allow the passage of menstrual blood Why is Provera prescribed? Provera is derived from the female hormone progesterone. You may be given Provera if your menstrual periods have stopped or a female hormone imbalance is causing your uterus to bleed abnormally. Provera is also prescribed to prevent abnormal growth of the uterine lining in women taking estrogen replacement therapy.
I was prescribed 10 10mg pills for ten days to stop this constant flow I've had for the last 5 months due to the depo shot. I've been on the provera for 6 days. The bleeding got really light to where I could go with out tampons or pads for two days straight. But now I have sore breast,cramps,bloated,& the earge to poop. Can this be a normal period coming on? Should I continue the pills?
I used depo provera for 2 and half years and I ceased 4 months ago with the intention of conceiving, I have been menstruating whilst on depo but the floor was not heavy not consistent even up to now. My problem is that currently I am menstruating and this is the eighth day, the floor is very heavy with big blackish blood clots that are frightening me. Is this normal and how long will it take for me to have pregnancy ?
Can’t forget the crying that goes along with anxiety! When I was 21 yrs old (in 1998), I was put on birth control (Depo Provera shot) to shrink ovarian cysts. The shot took away my period. Yay!! I was on the shot for 10 years and didn't have a period so I didn't have to deal with period anxiety. But the shot caused me to gain weight, about 50lbs. So I decided that I wouldn't go back and get another shot. I lost about 30lbs so far!

Hello, If you stop getting Depo-Provera injections, your period usually returns within 3 to 10 months but sometimes it may take 12-18 mths. But ovulation may return prior to that. Hence chances of pregnancy are always there if you have unprotected sex after leaving the depo shots. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.

I have been off of depo provera for about two years, on depo provera I experience the periods 4 times a year and mild lactating, and I have been sexually active. My question is, since I have been off of it for the last year, I had experienced regular periods for the first three months, and now all of a sudden I am not having any menstrual cycles what so ever. Is it still because of the depo provera or is another underlining cause?
Other possible ways to treat this is by using other types of contraception such as depo provera or the Mirena IUD. Talk with your ob/gyn about what may be best for you. Best regards, Dr.
Hello, You need to get the depo provera shots after every 3 months. If you have missed the march shot then this spotting can be due to return of periods or intermenstrual bleeding. Intermenstrual bleeding could be due to pregnancy, birth control pills, infection in an area of the body related to menstruation (including the vagina, the cervix and even the bladder).
I had and allergic reaction to some meds called MAXALT-ALT and they had to inject some medicine into a iv to come me down and get my breathing right , I know you may not know but since I was on the depo-provera does this mean it's leaving my body because the meds had to work itself into my blood stream just like the depo and the next week I got a period and I haven't had a period in a whole year. HELP ?
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.
