Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and ectopic pregnancy


Avatar n tn Depo Vera I got preg on depo.
Avatar n tn On the other hand, I have heard lots of bad stories about Depo-Provera, and that's why I think Kimmie can help you here. She knows alot about Depo, and she's a nurse. If you see her post somewhere, just jump in and ask her- she won't mind.
Avatar n tn I have had 2 depo injections i was due my next 1 on the 6th september but my doctor advised against it because i had a ectopic pregnancy 2 years ago and had to have my tube removed.
Avatar f tn Various factors causing it are endometriosis,ectopic pregnancy,hormone imbalance,endometrial hyperplasia,polyps,use of IUD’s and depo shots, sexually transmitted diseases,PCOS and benign and malignant pathologies of the uterus. I would suggest you to consult a gynecologist and get a pelvic examination and swab culture done to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment depends on the confirmation of diagnosis.
Avatar n tn I have heard about taking geritol from a close friend of mines and she say it really do work now her baby is 3 months and pregnant again for taking them I hope it really works because now I am taking them.
Avatar f tn Just to add on my comment on May 23, 2008. I had my fibroid surgery 2 years ago and trying to get preg after got better from the surgery but no luck. I think HSG played a big role on positive preg test result. Just an opinion...Who knows!
Avatar n tn I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue. I am having a very hard time finding any info on any one with this happening to them and the risks to me or my unborn child. I have seen several doctors and none of them have ever heard of this happening and 2 have suggested termination. I have an appointment with a high risk specialist on Thursday (02/27/03).
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 have been TTC for 4 months (this is currently our 5th), DH is 30 and I'm 28. Have been off Depo Provera Shot for 14 months and been having irregular periods for 10 months now. My cycle length varies from 12 - 20 days. I'm currently sitting at CD22 with no period, no cramps, bloating, or any of the AF symptoms I'm used to. Have been using OPK because of the irregular cycle length & this month ovulated on CD5 while I was still spotting from AF!
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor on Dec.1,2003 and they gave me both a urine and blood pregnancy test that came back negative. I've been having mild cramps from time to time but I really don't feel pregnant. My stomach is still flat and I always feel empty other than that I'm normal. What are my chances of still being pregnant?
Avatar n tn my last AF was 2/6 and i 'o'ed on the 21st as well. We have been TTCing after depo for 14 months now. I was 3 days late and tested BFN and wiped and saw pink. I assumed it was AF and then she went away. Where i am on clomid my doc made me go in friday for a blood level to see if i am PG. i have not tested with urine since cuz i cannot stand the disappointment. I know how frustrating this can be for sure. it is even harder when you want it so bad to keep your mind on anything else.
Avatar m tn Hi, my name is Jane and I have been having many pregnancy symptoms. Feeling tired all day, hungry all the time, sickness now and then throughout the day. But I have been having a very irregular bleeding for about the past month or so. On and off, light then heavy. Brown looking color then very red. It's different on a day-to-day basis. Also, I was on the depo provera birth control shot for about a year but stopped getting it around 5 months ago.
Avatar f tn I have irregular periods, so its hard to determine what's normal and whats not! I was on Depo-Provera for about 6 months until about 2 months ago, when I decided to stop this BC, for specific reason and other reaccuring problems. I have used this BC before getting pregnant, 4 years ago! Never had these problems until going back on DP. Anyone else experiencing this?
Avatar n tn On march 31st i went to my OBGYN and took a pregnancy test and it was neg. i then demanded a blood test, and to my suprise i was pregnant! now im 7 weeks pregnant and still cant get a positive urine test. some ppl are just like that. I have poly cystic ovarian disorder, but my advice is dont always beleive it when ur doctor tells u that u have that. theres no way they can diagnose it and be sure. anyways, if its a girl, her name will be Amal, the arabic word for hope. Keep ur hopes up ladies.
Avatar n tn Well, I have been ecperiencing pregnancy symptoms without the exception of morning sickness which I experienced throughout my 1st trimester of my last pregnancy. I have been taking pregnancy tests since May and they have all come out negative but now I am freaking out because I am feeling movement in my stomach, sometimes kicks. So I am seriously considering getting a blood test or a sonogram because the suspense is killing me.
Avatar n tn When I was 17, I had an ectopic pregnancy and 3 miscarriages since then which is a total of 4 1/2 years ... I've had no brown spotting or red blood, either! Please help me :( I don't have medical insurance right now so I am trying to wait things out as long as possible so we can get more $$$ so I can have a blood test done .. Any suggestions, reassurance, or advice is greatly appreciated and welcomed!! Thanks in advance, too!
Avatar n tn Hi everyone! I have been TTC for 1 year and I am 7 days past ovulation. I took a test this morning (I know it is too early, but I couldn't help myself) and it was negative. For the past 2 days I have had a lot of clear/whiteish discharge, that is very runny (not a yeast infrction). Sorry to be so graphic, but I am hoping this could be cervical fluid from the implanation or some sign that I could be pregnant. Does anyone have any information on this that could help?
Avatar n tn Hello, From your symptoms, it can be due to metrorrhagia even. Various factors causing it are endometriosis,ectopic pregnancy,hormone imbalance,endometrial hyperplasia,polyps,use of IUD’s and depo shots, sexually transmitted diseases,PCOS and benign and malignant pathologies of the uterus. If you have prolonged bleeding then it is advisable to consult a gynecologist.
Avatar n tn would having had partial endometriosis and an ectopic pregnancy in the past and having surgery for it and/or being on depo-provera for the past 10 years have any effect on getting these yeast infections? thanks for any insight that you can provide.
Avatar f tn but my body was still screwed up from when I was on Depo Provera back in 2004. So I guess the Depo in my sysytem and my body trying to regulate itself after stopping BCP's caused me not to have AF. It was so fustrating knowing that hubby and I were wanting a baby but what was the use of even trying? I wasnt ovulating and AF was no where in sight. But the OB/GYN gave me provera in Dec 05 and I had a period but then no period in Jan 06 so I again took provera.
Avatar n tn Then we had intercourse again that same day but we used a condom. I dont have any pregnancy symptoms and i went to a clinic last week for a test and it came out negative. It was just a urine test so i dont know how accurate it is . why is my period so late?

Avatar m tn You don't need surgery to do this, it is a simple insertion done by your doctor right at their office. The risks with IUD are ectopic pregnancy and pelvic inflammatory disease. The first one is random and actually is a risk with all women anyway, but if your wife has already had one of those before make sure her doctor knows. The second risk is lessened greatly by staying monogamous. It is good your wife stopped depo. I was on depo for two years.
Avatar n tn This morning I didnt have any at all. I have been having cramps to the side and top of my stomach. I havent taken Pregnancy test yet cause I dont wnt a negative result to ruin My Christmas with my little boy. Im going to the Dr on Wednesday. I am hoping a positive result. I should have started this week.
Avatar n tn A pregnancy test showed show a pregnancy whether it be ectopic or not. Have they done a blood pregnancy test on you? If not I would ask for one. I would also call the doctor back and ask to be seen sooner than 2 months. Good luck. Let us know how you make out.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm currently on the Depo-Provera shot and the past two years at least I have had abnormal pap smears. My doctor was worried and scheduled a Colposcopy for me. I've been bleeding for the past 3-4 weeks and have had to reschedule because of it. The bleeding has been light but dark, more black than brown for 2-3 weeks until this week which started with pink and is now alternating red and dark. I'm worried there is something seriously wrong.
Avatar f tn I figured it might take 3 months or so for my body to return back to normal cycles, but I didn’t expect it to take 7+ months. I've taken pregnancy test after pregnancy test and have come up with negatives every time. However, my body feels as if i am pregnant (sore breasts, morning sickness, lower back pain, mood swings, change in appetite, etc.). Two nights before Christmas I went to the E.R.
Avatar m tn I’m sorry sister. Naturally, you most likely won’t conceive since you have had your “tubes tied” & if you do, you have a high risk of an ectopic pregnancy. Although sometimes you can have the tubal ligation reversed. Talk to your doctor about your options and let us know.
