Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and abnormal bleeding


Avatar n tn I got depo provera about a month and a half ago. The last 2 weeks I have had extreme cramps in my abdomine and lower back. I have also had none stop bleeding for about 2 weeks. It is not spotting it like a full on period. Is this normal or should I go to my doctor?
Avatar n tn depo provera effects every one different. when i was on it, it stopped my af all together. however when my mother in law went on it she had af for an entire month. you long bleeding could be your body trying to clear out your system from delivery. if it persists give the doc a call and ask. there are no stupid questions.
Avatar n tn * antibiotics DO decrease the effect of any birth control, whether it is oral, topical, or by injection. * bleeding can and does occur during pregnancy, and esp. w/ Depo * pregnancy can and does occur during Depo, and can cause some defects to growing fetus * DEPO CAN DECREASE THE HCG LEVELS There are many more side effects you can experience, so please go to the site and read the facts, not the rumors you hear. www.depoprovera.

Avatar f tn I have been on Depo Provera Since Oct. and now i am experiencing some abnormal bleeding( continuous period) and i would like to know why is this occurring and is it safe to have sex and not think i'm Pregnant?
Avatar f tn You should change birth control. You bleeding so much can lead to anemia. And bleeding non stop for 6 months can really take its toll on you. plz call your doctor.
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar n tn Ok I am a day late here, but I hope you get this and it can be of help, I was on Depo for 3 years and when I went off I got AF pretty fast but then it has been irregular since. I was off everything for the year after depo and never really had a normal peroid. THen I went back on the pill and even that didnt really regulate it. It regulated the start date a little but some months would be heavy, others light, sometimes it would last one day and others it could last a week.
Avatar n tn Infection and pregnancy can cause abnormal bleeding as well. It is reasonable to try provera because it will stabilize the lining of the uterus You should ask your doctor about a pregnancy test if you have not had one, lab tests to check for a hormone imbalance such as thyroid hormone. You should also ask about getting a pelvic ultrasound right after your period when the lining of your uterus should be at its thinnest.
Avatar n tn You girls have to discontinue Depo Provera at once and I highly recommend never putting any hormones into your bodies ever again. I have experienced a living nightmare from Depo Prover for the past three years. After I got the Depo shot I went home and researched on the web about the drug. I cried for three hours in fear that that could happen to me. What happened was worse. Five days after the shot a menstrual cycle started that would not cease. It wasn't a normal cycle.
Avatar n tn My son will be 3 in april and I had bleed almost constantly since he was born and have been on at least 9 different birth control since that time. Currently on depo provera. Nothing changes the bleeding and the dr wont do any test to find out what it is because they tell me that i am to young to have any thing wrong with me I am 25. I feel tired and weak all the time have no appetite and in the last two years i have lost 20 lbs and now down to 98 lbs. Very concerned and can not get any answers.
Avatar n tn The uterus usually needs to clean itself at least once every three months to stay healthy--otherwise the lining can build up and get so thick that it start bleeding continously for weeks on end--sometimes heavy sometimes light, sometimes clotty, sometimes spotty--sound familiar? The reason I say it should be treated is that I have actually seen a case of a 27-year-old who developed cancer of the uterine lining due to years of build up of tissue in the lining.
Avatar n tn Hun it sounds like you have endometriosis. I have that and it spread to my bladder and kidneys. I would get bad and i mean bad UTI's I had loose stool, vomiting, painful sex, heavy bleeding. That Provera is a birth control right? If that is the case it might be good that you are on it. It sounds like your doctor is on the right track. One test you can have them do is a biopsy of your endometrium. Its just when they take a sample of the lining of your uterous.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn My question is why is my bleeding not stopping completely on provera although its been 2 weeks i started taking them and the bleeding is moderate during the dayt and light during the night, I am soaking 2 to 3 pads per day .. Can I stop taking provera and start combination OC pills to stop the bleeding ? will it help me..I am having lot of tiredness and fatigue due to bleeding so long ..please advise and help me..thanks much!
Avatar n tn Then in Feb I got another one and it didn't stop for 31 days (between light and med). So I called my gyno and she put me on provera for 10 days, stopped the bleeding for about 5 and then one day I had the heaviest period EVER for like 2 hours and then nothing for another week. That was at the end of March, now 3 weeks ago I got it again and it hasn't stopped. I'm starting to worry and get frustrated because I'm afraid it will never regualte and I won't be able to conceive children.
Avatar n tn I was on Depo provera for 2 years after I came off it for one month I fell pregnant...very lucky. My daughter is now 4 and I have been on depo again for those four years. I plan to start trying for baby number two after our wedding in september this year. I recently was due for my injection but decided to give my body a break so I didn't have the injection.
Avatar n tn So I take another home test and that came out Positvie with a clear faint line like the pregnancy test I took when i was pregnant with my son, So i went back to the doctor and took another Blood test still Neg. And now im 2 months into this Depo shot and Iv been bleeding the whole time off and on, Not too heavy and not soo light and im feeling nausia all the time and i want to eat more like when i was pregnant. What are the symtoms of Being pregnant on depo shot?
Avatar n tn I had the depo-provera shot 13 years ago and had bleeding for a solid 3 months. My dr told me that I was one of a few percent of people that goes the other way, as most don't have a period at all. It's all about the hormones and may take a while to get regulated. They it took me about 6 months to get back to a regualar cycle.
Avatar n tn I don't mean to sound impatient or unreasonable, but we have been making a concerted effort since July (something we have never had to do) and have only had these weird bleeding episodes, and we can't seem to get any answers. Needless to say, I would rather have all my children 13 months apart than go through this again. Buh-bye Depo! I don't know if my age is a factor because I am only 27... I am also wondering if taking clomid 'reverses' the effects of Depo Provera.
Avatar n tn -Light vaginal bleeding, especially apparent after intercourse (3 months ago) -Painful intercourse, along with previous symptoms and heavier bleeding (3 months ago) -Awoke early morning, cramping, heavy bleeding and extremely heavy clotting (2 months ago) -Nausea in the early morning, vomiting "coffee ground" blood (1 month ago) -Brownish-bloody discharge, normal bleeding after intercourse, painful intercourse, constant abdominal/vaginal cramping, stretch marks worsening, vaginal dryn
Avatar f tn In October, I got my first shot of Depo-Provera. I know several women on depo and they have all told me they have had the same experience: no periods, no spotting and no other side effects whatsoever. My experience has been horrible. For the first 6 weeks, all was well, no bleeding/spotting and no other symptoms. A few weeks ago, however, I began spotting. Every day it became heavier.
Avatar n tn I have been on depo since feb 2005 and had my last needle sept 2005. December 15 i started to get heavy bleeding the time when i was due for my next needle. the bleeding stoped around december 25, since then around the middle of january i experienced two days of some light brown spotting only when i wiped. i've been having some early signs of pregnancy like being tired, fuller breast, frequent trips to the bathroom, neausa, headache, and bloating.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn i started the depo shot when i was 13 till i was 21 so what 7 years i was on it. im now 29 i have been trying to get pregnant for the last 4 years. i got put on pills that my obgyn says that 90% of people who take it get pregnant. well i didnt that was 2 years ago. if i could go back to when i was 13 and know what i do now i would of NEVER gotten on the depo shot. i have to go to the fertility clinic now to have some kind of a chance to have a child. it cost thousands of dollars to do this.
Avatar f tn The results showed that ther was nothing abnormal going on down there. I am also on the depo provera birth control shot and sometimes have spotting. I have very few periods as i have been on it for a year. But as soon as i have sex i bleed like my period is on and it never lasts more than a couple minutes.
Avatar n tn i have noticed this problem for at least a couple of years and initially my doctor thought it was because i was in depo provera and had abnormal bleeding all the time. i have been on the pill for over 7 months and my periods are back to normal except after this occurrence following orgasm. in april i had an abnormal pap smear that indicated i had HGSIL (high-grade intraepithelial lesions) of the cervix.
