Depo provera shot calendar

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera shot calendar


In order to have total confidence in the effectiveness of the shot, ALWAYS make an appointment to get the shot within the time frame your doctor tells you the next shot needs to be, otherwise YES, you DO have to wait until after your next period to get the shot again. Between the time you miss your shot and the end of your next period, which is when they tell you to get the shot if you're starting for the first time or restarting, you CAN BECOME PREGANT!! Better safe than sorry for sure!
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 have been on the Depo Provera shot for one year - before I say anything else I should mention to you that it's more immediately effective if they give you the shot in your hip like they recommend, not in your arm. I have had no normal periods while on it; on a rare occasion I will have a small amount of blood when I wipe after going to the bathroom (sorry if that detail was gross).
I got my calendar today and my procedure week is May 19thMy doctor gave me provera to have a period. MY question is why do we go on BCP to have another period and then take all of these other injectables?
I have taken 2 pregnancy tests over the past 2 months and they have both come out negative. My fear is that because I was on depo-provera for almost 5 1/2 years that we may not ever be able to conceive a child. It has been 4 months now since I have been off the shot. Will I ever be able to conceive or is it just to soon?
If you are on the pill, Depo Provera or anything like that, spotting can happen. when I was about your age, I passed a big clot in the middle of the month and thought I had a miscarriage or something. It was just spotting from the Depo shot I was on for my endometriosis. No big deal. Sure, you could be pregnant, I guess, but probably not. If the spotting happens again, or if you get pain or anything, make an appt with a gynocologist and check into it.
I am confused after switching my hormonal birth control methods. I was on the Depo-Provera shot for five years, and I pretty much had no periods while I was on it. I decided to switch to the pill because I was thinking that perhaps the shot contributed to my weight gain of about 100 lbs. So, I saw a doctor in my OB-GYN office who put me on Loestrin 24 FE. I began taking them in the beginning of July, right when my next Depo shot would have been due.
had to have blood that time my doctors decided to put me on the depo shot to try and stop the bleeding and it didnt they gave me the shot every month and it still didnt stop the bleeding so they gave me the shot every 2 if I want to have a period I have to take provera...I went through 4 rounds of Clomid, each round a higher dose then the other with no luck...
i gained weight, i was irritable all the time, depressed, and just wanted to eat and eat! i prefer Yaz over anything else. but i may start the depo-provera shot birth control. it's something i'm looking into.

I don't have PCOS just simply haven't ovulated in 4 months. Last regular AF was November 09. All my other's have been Provera induced. Did clomid 50 mg last cycle and still didn't ovulate. This next cycle doing provera agian and clomid 100 mg. Hopefully I ovulated. Have my fingers crossed. SBD!
I had a trigger shot on CD 15 and I'm not supposed to test until day 30. But, I started testing to see when the trigger was out of my system (I'd get a negative test when the hcg from the trigger was gone). But, I havent gotten a negative yet! I dont know if it's still the shot or if it's early pregnancy, but I'll let you know as soon as I do!
Did the Provera, took the hormone shot. Now I'm on generic Ortho-Tricyclen. Starting my third month of this, and am getting very frustrated, depressed, and aggravated. Lethargic, disgusted with how I feel all the time. Tired when I go to bed, tired when I get up. Exhausted at work and can't afford to miss because I'm divorced and footing all my bills alone. (Complainer's Corner is over here, by the way.
okay, I'm on the Birth Control Shot (Depo pervera) and you know how they make you do a urine sample Before they give you the shot? well i was just wondering if its incase you're pregnant. and if you were so happen to be pregnant they wouldnt give you the shot. am i correct?
I have been with my bf or 2 years now, and before then I was taking birth control since I was 16. I am no longer on the pill or shot. I always have a normal period and when it's over, sometimes I spot, brownish, red with discharge, I also feel bloated and cramps. I tend to have headaches and heartburn, and get really sleepy. it's not very likely for me to have heartburn. It's been 10 days now, since we had sex and it was unprotected. I made a doctor's appointment but it's for next week.
Wow, this post is so old, but I see that people are still here, so I'm going to post something. My last normal period came about Feb 5th (give or take a day...I forgot to mark it on my calendar). On Feb 25th, I had spotting that lasted 4 days (for the last 3 days, it only lasted from the morning until the early afternoon. By nighttime, there would be nothing). That same week I was exhausted and nauseated...I thought I was coming down w/the flu until the spotting started.
i forgot to add that i was on the shot for like 7 months..i just got off of it b/c it was making me of course you kno when your on the shot you dont get a least not a regular one. So the last time i've had a real period was like last talking april/march 07!!!!!! could this have anything to do with it????
hi I took 7 test 5 came back positive and 2 came back negative, but th odd thing is is im on the depo, and my last period was a year and a half ago. last night me and m boyfriend had sex and now im bleeding on and off and cramping really bad! anyone know what is going on? help if you can please!
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!

Hello I am needing help and hope someone can help I took depo provera one shot last oct 5th 2009 did not go back it caused me to gain some weight and lost my periods from nov 2009 to march 2010 then ive had a period every monh from april to aug and had no problems it came every month on time and lasted 4 or 5 days then this month i did not have a period and had some lower stomach pains been nauseated loss of sleep cranky but im am 10,days late went and had ablood test it says im not preg what co
my last AF was 2/6 and i 'o'ed on the 21st as well. We have been TTCing after depo for 14 months now. I was 3 days late and tested BFN and wiped and saw pink. I assumed it was AF and then she went away. Where i am on clomid my doc made me go in friday for a blood level to see if i am PG. i have not tested with urine since cuz i cannot stand the disappointment. I know how frustrating this can be for sure. it is even harder when you want it so bad to keep your mind on anything else.
I'm 4 days past provera and nothing yet. I'm getting alittle worried because I've been on provera like 6 times and almost always like clock work I get it two days after stopping it. I'll wait until it's been 7 days past then I'll call my dr. Didn't realize I could wish so much for AF :-) Well I have enjoyed this day off. Back to work tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend :-) SSBD!!!!
That way if it comes back as negative you will have your definite answer and your docs can put you on provera to bring about your period. My sister however never tested positive until 2 weeks past her missed AF. She gave birth to 4 healthy girls. So it is very poss to have neg tests and still be pregnant.
But I had the IUD in for two years and had the Depo. shot for six years before that so I haven't had a period in eight years. So since Nov. 28th I haven't had a period since. I have a few pregnancy symptoms but had 4 neg. HPT since Dec. 24th. Now it is Jan. 12th and no signs of a period or a positive PT. Any suggestions????
I also took 10,000 units of HCG trigger shot but it has been 8 days since I had shot so I don't know if that could be it. Please HELP!!!
After 13 days of heavy flow, I called my doctor who put me on provera to stop my period. It tapered off and I had 1 day without a period before the provera withdrawl bleed started. It picked up right where it had left off and ended after another 13 days of bleeding. I don't know if the provera messed up anything else, but I didn't have a period after that until the doctor induced another one (68 days from my 2nd half of that heavy period).
DH and I were intimate 2 days before and the day that I was very very fertile (according to ovulation calendar) If I conceived my implantation day would have been 8/17. AF was due on 8/26 but I started cramping & bleeding on the 23rd. It wasn't a lot, just enough that I had to wear a pantyliner. Sometimes it was red but mostly brown and last 3 days. Only symptoms I have now are mild cramping, clear discharge & a pulling sensation in my abdomen.
