Depo provera and diabetes

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and diabetes


Avatar n tn The docotors believe I may have a progesterone problem due to Depo Provera. I was on Depo for 6 years and went off the shot in Sept. Does anyone know if the effects of this shot can linger and cause lower progesterone levels?
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 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 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 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 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 f tn Hi, I have been gaining weight after discontinuing depo provera and adderall 30mg. I have been gaining wait rapidly, it's really quite scary. I was 122lb in December and after weighing in on October 15th I am not 182lb! A few months ago I was 153.. Doctors I've seen tell me to "eat healthy and exercise." Well, I already do that. I always have been healthy and involved in sports. My weight is getting to be very uncomfortable.
Avatar n tn Given the history that you have provided, I can not localize your problems any further, but would recommend an MRI of the cervical spine, and a repeat EMG at a major academic center. As far a Depo-Provera shots go, it is likely unrelated. The side effect 'paralysis' is listed in the less than 1% of possible reactions to the medication and has no statistically significant association (there is also no information provided about a possible mechanism).
Avatar n tn I would also rule out any hormonal disorders like hyperthyroidism and Cushings, and diabetes. I would suggest that you have a pelvic examination, possible endometrial biopsy, ultrasound of your pelvis, uterus, ovaries and a complete female hormone work up including a beta HCG, TSH, FSH, LH, E2, Prolactin, DHEAS, Testosterone, AM Cortisol, fasting glucose, comprehenisive metabolic paniel, liver function tests. You may need a laparoscopy to make sure that you do not have endometriosis.
Avatar n tn strange menstrual cycles) At first I had spotting on and off every month after I started depo and after my last depo shot I never got the spotting or anything. I was constantly trying to lose weight. I didn't know how to get the weight off. I'm still 135. Been that since I gave birth to my daughter. No diet pills or diet will work for me. I haven't had my period or any spotting since my last shot and I'm still breastfeeding my daughter. But a few days ago I started feeling queasy.
Avatar f tn ), flush, headaches, and once a month (usually a couple days before my period) My blood pressure and blood sugar drop, I get dehydrated and have unintentional weight loss. I have lost a total of 60 lbs since March and my A1c level (diabetes) has gone from 12 to 5.8 My diabetic Dr. is now taking me off my insulin. I have had SO many tests done and all the Dr.s ask the same question... What changed. All I can think of is that my cycle came back. Has anyone else had these problems???
Avatar n tn i have a few signs of pregnancy but am on the depo provera shot, and have been for a little over a year now. i've only been late getting my shot once, but was tested for pregnancy then, and of course a negative. but latley i have been waking up at 6 every morning having to go pee, and i've also been waking up sick to my stomach a few times. also, a few weeks ago, i had just stopped my constant 2 week nausea, and now only get it randomly, or when i smell warm foods like fries, or meats.
Avatar n tn Part of the problem might be the depo-provera, it can have all kinds of side effects. Also, have you seen a chiropractor, I know it sounds funny, but, when all tests, etc have come back normal, sometimes this is the only answer. If you have a lot of vertebrae that are out of alignment, they can press on nerves, and such and cause all kinds of trouble.
Avatar f tn I was about 5'9'' 210lbs when I got pregnant....I had gained 50lbs previously from being on Depo Provera and had not been able to lose the weight yet. So far I have only gained about 20lbs with this pregnancy and Im 37 weeks 2days. My dr hasnt said anything about being overweight to me. And I havent had any trouble with GD or BP (mine is the normal 120/80 everytime). My Dr says I have a very healthy baby that will be around 8lbs when born.
1432700 tn?1283377350 And the symptoms were so similar to the same symptoms i already felt due to the diabetes and pcos. I have no way of knowing if i miscarried just cuz, or if it was my fault because i got off the metformin, becuase i didnt know the signs and didnt get early prenatal care. i get so mad at myself sometimes and blame myself so much. but i also now know that i can get pregnant, and maybe next time i will be able to keep it.
Avatar m tn With all due respect Msniki412, Metformin"glucophage" is not always the answer and nor does it always help. The question is why did an otherwise healthy women get pcos? and why if she already eats healthy and exercizes normally should she need a medication like glucophage for border line insuline resistance/insuline resistance aka diabetes? why would a healthy woman who like i said before eats well,excersizes routinely be subject to pcos in the first place?
Avatar n tn I developed a blood clot post operatively in my leg and was also on bc pills which I had to stop. Another gyn had put me on depo-provera (which I guess was a no-no) and from what I was told that once you've developed a clot your likely to get them again and that's what happened.
1344197 tn?1392822771 Claims of weight loss, increasing energy, improve mood, are safer, and many others have been made. Hopefully this article can help you answer questions and dismiss many of the myths surrounding this highly published, highly marketed topic. The term Bioidentical Hormones is not a medical term, it is a marketing term used to imply an exact copy of the hormones produced in the body.
Avatar n tn The fact that its your husband taking it does have something to do with you not seeing results,most the people that have wrote on here are women/female and have pcos and or diabetes and that plays a big role on the effects of the meds! because theres something more going on that you dont understand because lol your husband dont have overies well at least i hope not.....
Avatar f tn and the other weird thing is, i haven't been doing ANYTHING to lose the weight it just came off, although i heard that since i was on depo provera from 13-18 which is a good chunk of years ... i am going to be 21 this year? I got off of depo i believe 2 years ago in november. i'm not sure if this could be the problem??. before the birth control i used to be super skinny, like size zero. went to 186lbs while on depo..
Avatar n tn I had my gall bladder removed a year ago, this yr 2010 I went on the depo shot and I gained 15 in 3 months is this due to my gall bladder or the depo shot? before my surgery I was 115, and never gained a pound.
Avatar f tn the patch,nuva-ring,depo-provera, and just about every pill you can think of. Not only did they not work but they caused the worst side effects and I am not allergic to anything. I have been controlling my diet for some time now watching my carb intake and was on glucophage for a while with no results. I have irregular periods sometimes a year on and a year off and extremely they are usually heavy and painful.
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 My mother who is Type 2 Diabetic, experinced these tears along with yeast infections and athletes foot infections all through her 30's and 40's until her diabetes was diagnosed and she got her levels under control. I honestly find it rediculous that the modern medical community, which treats the majority of women's reproductive health problems as shameful, has no flipping idea what causes these tears or how to really treat them.
Avatar f tn My acupuncturist and the specialist seem to think these symptoms are a result from having bladder infections in the past (I have a sensitive bladder), DOES ANYONE THAT HAS A SENSITIVE BLADDER, or have had many bladder infections in the past, and HAVE SIMILAR symptoms as me? I've seen 2 doctors and 1 specialist, none have really told me anything and ALL tests always come back negative (I was tested for herpes as well.
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 n tn Today I went by the health department to pick up some foam and condoms (my physician told me I can never get pregnant again due to those complications, plus I had gestational diabetes and postpartum preeclampsia) and the nurse told me that she thought I could take a progesterone shot, such as Depo Provera or Lunelle. Now that I've finally gotten around to asking my question, can a woman with a history of PEs take Depo or Lunelle safely?
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 I am a 28 year old woman with irregular ongoing menstruation for 2 months, sometimes heavier than others but usually very light with minimal clotting. I am over weight, and until about 4 months ago didn't have periods at all since the age of 17 when my mother made me get a depo shot. I was diagnosed with amennoreah. had the hormone pills once. Never looked into the problem again, because I have no insurance. Had testing for fasting labs show recently a fatty liver, not sure if that...
