Avatar f tn I've been on Depo Provera for almost a year but i've decided to not get my next shot in two weeks i'm not wanting to get pregnant anytime soon but I'm wondering how long will it take for the Hormones to leave my body and what kind of side effects should I expect?
Avatar n tn when i first went on depo i did that. i chalk it up to my system clearing out. after a couple of months it stopped and i never had a period again until i stopped taking it all together of course.
Avatar n tn i was on the minipill for two years i am not getting my period now doctor wants to put me on depo provera she claims after awhile the affectiveness of the minpill wears off and depo would be best for me being that it is also a progesteron only contraceptive and will continue not getting my period am afraid because of all the bad things i hear about it any suggetions?
Avatar f tn I have been on Depo-provera for nearly two months now, and have been on several other birth controls to try and regulate my period. None of the pills ever worked, I continued to bleed irregularly with heavy blood flow, and periods lasting up to 8 weeks. My doctor and I tried LUPRON to stop my periods, and it worked well for about six months. Due to insurance refusing to pay, I switched to Depo-Provera. I started bleeding two weeks ago, with all the sypmtoms of a regular period.
Avatar f tn Hi. I had my last depo shot in august and I just finnished my first 10days of provera on oct. 4 and I still havent had a period yet. I know sometimes it can take up to 14 days after but Im well over my 14 days. So my question is why havent I had a period yet? And could it be that the shot is still in my system or is the provera meant to over-power it? Please Help?!
Avatar n tn Hi, I 1st got Depo-Provera when I was 16 and I stoped when I was 21 I am 23 now and will be 24 on dec, 3 of this year. I have tryed to get pregnat for I think a year. Me and my Huby have sex as much as we can like every other day. I have been Calendar tracking My menstrual cycles and they have been like this...
Avatar n tn I was on Depo for 3 years, then got off and the next month got AF right on time, then got on Nuvaring for three months. I didn't like the weight gain w/this one either (10lbs) so I got off. It took 3 cycles to become pregnant, and we WERENT trying. Ihad been using fertility awareness. So far KNOCK ON WOOD!!! I'm 15w today!. It may be the projesterone, or just your body not acclimated to being pregnant yet since the Shot makes your body think it's pregnant.
Avatar n tn I was on Depo Provera for about 8 years when my husband and I decided to try for another baby. I received my last injection in September 2006. I was pregnant by March 07 but miscarried at 5 weeks. We waited until December to try again and just miscarried that one at 9 weeks. After having 2 healthy children with no pregnancy complications, I am led to believe that this is an effect of the Depo injections.
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 Well I had one period after it was inserted. I got it taken out about six months and was put on the Depo shot to get my fertility back. Well it's been almost there years now and I finally got my period back last month. I just started today but I was wondering if anybody has went through this and got their fertility back?? I really want another baby and so does my husband. Any advice?
Avatar n tn Hi! I'm new to this so please bare with me! I had depo provera injections from Apr 06 - Mar 07 (last one). BF & I have been actively TTC since then - My periods stopped at the 2nd injection and I have not had one since Aug 06. I have had a blood test in Aug which showed estridol 124pg/ml (in the follicular phase) and some more blood tests this week for prolactin which was normal, FSH - 4, LH - 5, and Estridol 489pg/ml. But sill no periods.
1456473 tn?1365831055 Hi. Currently on depo provera. Next shot is not due until december 2015 and i would like to try conceive my 4th baby some time within the near future. Iv been researching and found you can fall pregnant anywhere between 4 months after last shot and 3 years after last shot? Also it is very bad for baby to conceive 4months after last shot or conceiving too soon? Has any one any experience on this? Madly broody.
Avatar f tn I suggest that you consult your gynecologist and get yourself examined to rule out other causes of not conceiving as it has been close to 2 years since you have stopped the depo shot and fertility should return by this time. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn I just came across your post now... My last injection was Aug 28/08, and I still haven't had a period. I have read up on the process, and apparently it can take anywhere from 6-18 months to return to normal mentral cycles, and sometimes even returning to fertility. Have you had any luck since your last post? Please do keep me up to date on when you return to normal, as I am patiently awaiting mine.
Avatar n tn I suffered so many side effects with the shot I had to go off it and back onto the pill. Mr Dr hates the Depo shot and was glad when I wanted to go back on the pill. But I did go on the Ortho Evra Patch when that first came out and that was really good. I'm off bc now since we are ttc. But when we're done I'm going back on the patch or maybe the new bc pill that is a dissolving pill you chase with a glass of water.
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 f tn I received the depo shot about a month ago and my fiancé and I decided we want to have a baby before December of next year and we decided this too late to not receive that first shot so I'm wondering what would be the effects of fertility treatments be with this shot in my system??

Avatar n tn I am in a group where all the women are trying to conceive after the depo provera. Many have been trying to conceive for years, and no luck. And it seems like those who do conceive have miscarriages soon after. Its like 80% of the women who get pg have a miscarriage. Is this linked to the depo? Age? Im 22 and am trying to conceive #2. (my son is 6 now) I am so scared that it might happen to me.
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 I was on the Depo-Provera injection for about 2 year and a half and I have just gotten off the injection a couple of months ago. I got my first period and I have not gotten my second and it has been about 3 months. I have gone to my doctor had a blood test and a vaginal ultrasound to make sure I was not preg and he put me on Provera for 10days. I have been on the medication for 5 days and I have not even spotted or felt no cramps.
Avatar n tn Hello all, my wife has been taking depo provera for about 8 months now. After the first shot she gained around 20lbs and since then she has had 2 more shots and has gained around 45lbs. She has about a half a month left until she is supposed to come in for the next shot but we have decided against it. She has been exercising and dieting to no avail. What could we do to help her lose the weight and will it start coming off easier after the shot wears off?
Avatar n tn I was on depo provera for 3 years, then I went off and got a very heavy and long period (3 weeks). Then after a year of no period, I got on the pill to regulate myself and had regular periods on the pill for 7 years. I then went off the pill (Nov8, 2006) b/c my husband and I want to get pregnant. After 3 months of no period, my doctor gave me 5 days of provera. After 1 week I have no period which I expected. I know I am not pregnant. I have an appnt to see my doctor next week.
