Avatar n tn Do you mean depo provera? Assuming that is what you mean it is going to stop you from conceiving as it is birth control. It is 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. You need to tell your doctor that you are TTC so that she can try and help you in some other way than birth control.
184622 tn?1258559967 I took Provera 10 Pills I normally Start on the 1st and end on the 10th and it starts on the 12-14. It was a Pattern it was like that for 2-4 months Straight until I stop taking it.
Avatar n tn I was on depo for close to 3 years, and continually got ovarian cysts. My doctor at the time said it was quite normal for women to ovulate while on depo - that the depo shot had multiple forms of birth control (one was to stop ovulation, another was to build up a thick mucous layer over the cervix so that sperm could not enter, another was to thin out the endometrial lining so that a fertilized egg could not implant.
Avatar f tn I'm wondering if this length will lessen, and what experiences and advice other people have had with depo, and whether you would recommend it long term for a 16 year old.
Avatar n tn I was on Depo Provera for one year. I was put on the shot fro severe Ovarian Cysts. Instead of getting the shot every three months I had to get one every two months. Every doctor reassured me it was safe. I have now been off depo for one year and a half. My husband and I have tried every thing to get pregnant and I still can't. I started my periods as soon as I stopped taking Depo. All the doctors still assure me everything is okay. My gut feeling is telling me not to take that for an answer.
Avatar n tn "and it felt very painful; I could feel something sort of fall out of my vagina, or discharge. To my shock and amazement, I found what appeared to be a peice of flesh in my underpants" i just started depo and this happend to me too. it was pink and redish. i know it was not blood. it was fleshy. dose anyone know what it could be. i am afraid.
911955 tn?1247337027 I would like to ask if any1 had trouble with Depo Provera shot i took 1 shoot in Aug 2006 and my next shoot was due in Nov 2006 but i did not like it so i told my Doc since i was not with any1 at the time and i did not need the shoot .so she gave me birth control told me to start them that day but i never bc like i said i was not with any1 so i still never started the pill so it took me until jan 08 to start my a period back.
Avatar n tn Woman should be informed more of the consequences of taking Depo-provera and really Understand!! The impact this shot can and will have on your life. Why destroy your life to prevent one. Read up and become more knowledgable about the side effects the posion you are putting in your body. Everyday you loose a piece of your womanhood some women unfortunately will never get back.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn omg you must read my words people!!! do not get the depo!!! I have had 2 shots now, and now have ovarian cysts, brown discharge that has been going on for 2 weeks, I hit rock bottom depressed, and I am acting suicidal and crazy, and feel very sick. My doctor said that the hormone in depo may be not what my body is accepting... and could be hurting my body!!!! i am not going in again for another depo. EVER i have never been depressed in my life. This horrible shot caused all this pain for me.
Avatar f tn Ive had a ongoing problem with ovarian cysts,and during my first treatment a doctor as good as told me long term use of this contraceptive could have been to blame...since then another medical professional has hinted the same thing.I cant help but wonder if this could be the case,after all contraception of any invasive type interferes with normal bodily functions so cant do you any good really.
Avatar n tn fibroadenomas of the breasts, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endocervical thickening and cervical cysts. Also osteoarthritis in both knees along with grade 4 chrondomalacia in both knees, and osteoarthritis of the lumbar spine. All this in two years. Does anyone know if there is a relationship between the two?
Avatar f tn I was on depo for 3 yrs for same reason. Chronic ovarian cysts. The depo however made my cysts WORSE. I stopped and was able to conceive my 2nd child after 6 months of stopping which im grateful for. I did however carry my 2nd child with a huge ovarian chocolate cyst the size of a cantoloupe caused from depo. After having my son, i was diagnosed with severe endometriosis stage 5. I had severe fatigue like u also and complete loss of sex drive. I now control my cysts with natural remedies.
Avatar n tn Well, had the first Depo-Provera shot today. Hopefully my body adjusts alright and this helps with keeping the endo at bay. Has anyone used the Depo for endometriosis? What kind of experiences did you have? I'm kinda curious, but also thinking that maybe I jumped into the waters before seeing if there were sharks. :) (To reiterate, I was given three choices: oral BC, Depo, or Lupron. Opted against the Lupron for the vast scary side effects.
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 The pelvic scan showed no issues but the trans vaginal revealed a right side ovarian cyst, which my GP felt was most likely functional. I am on Depo Provera contraceptive jab and have not had a period in many years so this seemed odd to me!! I am now seeing a private gynaecologist who arranged another scan - he didn't seem to consider functional cysts an option either.
Avatar n tn Thanks so much for your info. I have been looking into the provera treatment and all I can find is that it is 'standard'...nothing linking it to increasing the size of cysts. I have put on a few pounds recently..but thought it had to do with either the provera or stress from this thing. Do you have any advice on what to do now???
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 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 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 f tn My doctor told me i had sciatica in my left leg, and that it would go after 3 or 4 weeks on its own, but it hasnt, and im starting to think my symptoms are maybe that of a cyst/cysts on my ovary. I had the Depo-Provera contraception injection in january, and since that, my symptoms have become alot worse, and ive suffered with persistent bloating and weight gain. But im still unsure as this could be water retention due to the injection.
17213106 tn?1456529591 I can't gage my symptoms based on everyone else's, I've been on Depo-Provera for the last 10 years, so I don't have a monthly cycle. But I do experience cramping and abdominal pain around the time I refill my Depo. That pain is nowhere near what I experienced this time around.
Avatar f tn 3 days ago, we learned that the left cyst had shrunk considerably and the right cyst was gone. I gladly took my second shot of Depo and went on my way. I have had an ongoing migraine since the day after the shot (2 days) and began researching this drug. Everything I read says that I should not be getting this shot. I had migraines prior to this, but over the past 3 months they have intensified greatly. My readings also revealed that Depo can cause clots! I'm already high risk for clots, so wth!
