Hello all. My Dr put me on provera to induce my period. Does anyone know how long it takes to get your period after you finish your pills?
After stoppage of Depo-Provera one can become pregnant as soon as three to four months after the last shot. It varies women to women. It may take some women up to a year or two to conceive once they stop using Depovera.It does not depend on how long you have been using Depovera.If you do not get your periods according to the stipulated time it will be best to consult a gynecologist. Do keep us posted. Take care and regards!
i was on the depo provera twice last year, after the second shot i got chest pains and heart pulputations,i went to docs who rushed me to hospital, all my tests came back fine other than a stressed heart, they sent me home with no answers, now 10 months after my last shot iv only just got my period back but its coming every 8 days and iv still got the chest pains and heart pulputations and im getting sick of it, just wondering how long does it realy take to get fully out of system???
The time varies in every woman and can be from 2-3 months to 12-18 months .The length of time you use Depo-Provera usually has no effect on how long it takes you to become pregnant. If you are not on any contraceptive you can get pregnant any time. If you are still unable to conceive then you should visit your gynecologist for more queries and assistance. Keep me posted. Best luck and take care!

Hi Dr. Goodman, I wonder if you have any information about how Depo-Provera can change the symptoms of ovarian cancer v. ovarian cysts? I have been on Depo-Provera for two years and it seems that it would mask all the symptoms that are most likely to identify a cyst vs. a tumour. Do you know anything about how the two would look different in the presence of Depo-Provera?
Ive been off the shot for 6mo now and I still havent had a period, does anyone know how long it will take?

Dear Jim - Thank you for your question about your sister-in-law and Depo-Provera. I'm afraid I am not qualified to answer your question completely. I can only tell you that there may be a slight increased risk for birth defects from the this drug - but the exact nature of that risk is unknown to me. I would recommend that your sister-in-law discuss at length any potential risks with her obstetrician.
I've seen online that I'm not alone in this but I dont understand what causes depo provera to make sex painful? Does anyone know?
Initial blood tests showed my cortisol levels 4 times normal. Been on Depo Provera for about 12 yrs. Stopped last summer and haven't gotten my period back. Over the last 4 years I becan to develop symptoms of Cushing's including weight gain (I've never in my life been overweight - then all of the sudden I was), apple-shaped body, thin arms & legs, moon face, flushing + diarrhea, and the Hallmark sign - the bufallo hump (fatty lump on the base of the back of the neck).
) I am a very healthy woman in a very healthy fit condition. I was wondering around how long does it take to get pregnant after the last shot. I didn't have any weight gain nor didn't stopped my periods.
I would say something truly is wrong and the body may need some assistance. Long term exposure to Depo does mess us up to some degree...I agree... but our bodies are devinely made and we should give it the benefit of the doubt before making things possibly worse assuming our bodies need help when it could be well on its way already. Three years max is the longest I would wait for a non-emergency.
You guys have been a lot of help so I hope you can help me! I started Depo Provera back in October of 2006 and have only received one of the 3 month dose. I got the shot when I was on my period. My period used to last 3 days then go away completely. A few days later, I would have a brownish discharge for just a few hours. I was told this is normal since your body is getting rid of some of the old blood and tissue. Well, after Depo, I bled the entire three months.
because I knew it was NO coincidence that my health suddenly declined and my weight suddenly escalated. “According to Sathyamala, Depo-Provera is a long-term, systemic, invasive contraceptive, which acts at multiple levels. Its potency and the ease with which it can be used have been cited as reasons for its promotion in sections with high birth rates and low "motivation" levels.
