Depo provera and alcohol

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and alcohol


Avatar f tn im 17 and i got on the depo shot in october of 2011 and i just got my 3rd shot today, i got the shot in my left arm and the nurse out the cotton ball and tape over it then a few hours later i took the cotton ball and tape off my arm and the cotton ball was very wet. could my depo have came out of my arm? or could it be from the rubbing alcohol she rubbed my arm with before she did the shot? im freaking out.
Avatar n tn I don't know why this would make you lose weight, but it will have no interaction at all with birth control whether pills or Depo Provera. Depo Provera has been implicated with weight gain. Some say it is the increased appetite due to the potent progestin, but probably more than that. Some women won't gain an ounce, but others will put it on very quickly. The number of meds that actually have the potential to make birth control less effective is very short.

Avatar f tn I will never go on Depo Provera again. My daughter was on Depo Provera at college, and discontinued the shot and has lost that weight and is thin again.'s free site has helped me keep up with my carb intake, and also tells me how many calories, how much fat etc. I use. It does this automatically when I put my food in for the day. Also Magic Bus has a forum where you can learn how to lose weight quick and even post on a challenge to keep you honest and responsible.
Avatar n tn here is my web site and depo group web address. please feel free to take a look and ask me questions!!! love...kimmie
Avatar f tn I wonder what the difference between the two depo shots are and I wonder why my gyno recommended the other depo shot if the depo-subq provera 104 shot is specific for endo ?
Avatar n tn She told me to never eat anything white (except chicken). Well her advice worked. It's something about the Depo Provera and and inability to metabolize carbs while Depo is still hiding in your tissues. She told me to eat this way until I lost the weight I want, and that then I could eat bread, salad, and the foods I love again. She also said the weight will not come back, as the depo will be gone. So I look forward to that in another month or so. I have already lost 45 lbs!
Avatar n tn I am on the Depo Provera shot and am due for another in at least 6 days. I drank about 3 Corona Beers yesterday and had some bleeding. I never bleed through out my shot cycles. Last shot cycle i had a few beers and spotted again within that 7 day window of getting the next shot. Can alcohol induce bleeding when close to getting the next shot ?
Avatar n tn I have had endo for over ten years now and after a few surgeries and depo provera i finally put my foot down along with my husband and said Enough is enough, i couldnt live like that any longer! so i started Lucrin in Jan and i've got my last injection in a few days time. I was terrified of going on it after reading side effects but...the hot flushes, night sweats, headaches and feeling pregnant lol are nothing compared to how much pain i was in before!
Avatar n tn tetanus, polio, tb and rubella vaccinations and depo provera. There is a small note on the box, but like I say - my doctor told me it shouldnt have been a problem. I know for next time (and i hope i never need proper antidepressants), and for anyone else i suppose. The good news is - afetr six weeks, quit smoking and also quit zyban, and if i never injest either again - it will be too soon!
Avatar f tn Although there are no studies to benefit its use, it is advised that all women on Depo-Provera get adequate calcium and Vitamin D (through diet and/or supplements) to help prevent osteoporosis.
Avatar n tn Hi, I weigh 180, on Depo Provera and in need of losing 25 pounds. My sister has been taking the B12 shots for 4 months and have lost 75 pounds, including eating right and exercising. Do you think I will be able to lose this weight taking B12 shots?
Avatar n tn thinks either adenomyosis or endo, but she told me if yaz doesnt help the next step might be the depo provera shot I dont know much about it but that may be a possibility for you, or possibly even lupron depo she suggested, even though I think you get many side effects from it. It's like a fake menopause! Well good luck lemme know how things works out!
Avatar n tn I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
Avatar n tn In this respect even after being together for almost 8 years (for which I had been on depo provera), we are still very healthy. My cycles are very irregular due to coming off the depo. Any input would be appreciated.
339212 tn?1196368535 I have never had a regular period, and have gone as long as a year without a period (on the Depo shot). I'm currently back on the Depo Provera (3 mo. kind), near the end of my third shot. Shortly after I started taking it again my period started flowing and has only stopped for breaks no longer than 3 days. I don't know if my birth control has anything to do with it at all, but I figured I would make sure I added that in there.
503727 tn?1210442710 As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar n tn I wouldn't think a drink now and then would be cause for alarm..As far as Depo Provera is concerned,that seems the more likely reason for your incident.. this is from the manufacturers of the drug "5. CNS Disorders and Convulsions Patients who have a history of psychic depression should be carefully observed and the drug not be readministered if the depression recurs. There have been a few reported cases of convulsions in patients who were treated with DEPO-PROVERA CI.
Avatar n tn I took Geritol for about 3 weeks as well as my husband, then i thought i was pregnant and switched over to prenatal pills, and sure enough i was! Im currently 7 weeks pregnant. Good luck to you!! My pregnancy isnt going so well though(not geritol related) but hopefully yours will be better!!
Avatar f tn She unfortunately had an alcohol issue, and did not know she was pregnant til abt 7months. My cousin was born 4lbs 9oz, and has had some health issues. He is now 15 and only 4' 3". I think it is sooo fantastic that you pay attention to your body and have been fighting like crazy to prove that this does happen! I continue to check often for updates , prayers and well wishes sent your way!!
298579 tn?1192250448 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!
Avatar f tn This happens mostly when I’m stressed, eating more sugar then I should and/or drinking alcohol two days in a row. *The inside glands around the clitoris but under the hood swell normally when the labia do. However, GOOD NEWS, the inside right gland does go down now- it’s NOT swollen all the time. IMPORTANT –READ THIS* I do see some sebum (the white stuff) under the clitoral hood, but this is NORMAL just not when there’s extra buildup- which I still sometimes have.
363243 tn?1331037450 I's not attractive and very depressing. I pluck (which is not good for you and causes hyperpigmentation) and I shave. I've become very skilled at covering the hyperpigmentation up with concealer but I'm so tired of it. The plucking on my neck has caused so much hyperpigmentation that I have to conceal it or people would look at me and ask me, "What's wrong with your neck?" The skin on my chest also has hyperpigmentation and I only shave this area.
Avatar f tn If it ends up that you are not pregnant then you may want to think of another form of birth control that you dont need to do on a daily basis such as Nuva ring, implanon, depo provera, mirena etc. I personally love the nuva ring. its in for 3 weeks out for 1 week then a new one the following week. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn I also wanted to add I have been on Depo Provera for 15 years a few month off here and there, I have one child 6 years old. I was wondering if the Depo could cause anything due to hormones or anything. I am currently off Depo was due about 1 month ago.
Avatar f tn Hey, does anyone here have any advice that can help? I'm 26, was on depo-provera for 7+ years, and haven't had a period since I started. My husband and I were married july 30 2010, and my last depo injection was mid july 2010. I was due for another one in October but we decided to come off it to see what happens. We have never had protected sex, but I'm noticing weird symptoms.
Avatar n tn She said she took SEVERAL HPT and 2 blood ALL NEGATIVE. Finally when her Doc gave her a RX for provera to start her period she was tested one more time 12/9 almost a month later she FINALLY GOT a positive blood test. Her Docs theory is she just ovulated VERY late in her cycle that month!!! How crazy is that!!? It took almost a WHOLE month for her to show positive for pregnant. I mean you are alittle further than a month though. Have you got an ultrasound?
Avatar f tn Heartburn has a lot to do with these symptoms so if you can eat less fatty, acidic foods and stay away from caffeine and alcohol you should begin to feel better. 4. Write it down- document when you feel the pain, what you have been doing lately, and what foods you have eaten. You might find a correlation between you symptoms and what you are doing.
Avatar f tn So, I was given the Depo Provera shot. I was told again that my symptoms should lessen in a few weeks. I went back in around Thanksgiving because I was still having pain and now I was getting strong abdominal cramping as well. I was sent to my regular physician to get an MRI and rule out other things. Everything came back negative. Then I wound up in the ER over Christmas break because my abdominal cramping was so strong I was doubling over in pain.
