987844 tn?1256852969 Hi there, My question is, although I have hypothyroidism and quite frequently have heart palpatations, and this is not necesserily due to my eltroxin levels being to high, Can Depo-Provera create a situation whereby you mimic all the symptoms of hypothyroidism, Lately my heart palpatations are more frequent and my levels are in normal range at the moment, This does no happen all the time though only seems to be when I should be on a cycle. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn I had had baby in Sept 04 and then went on Depo Provera a month later. A year later I started getting manic depressant and just didnt feel right. This was the second time that this happened to me on Depo Provera so I immediately went off. I let my system clean out for a month and then went onto Lo Ovoral pills and into the 8th day of the second pack I started to get these horrible migraines. I have never been sickly or have had headhaches in my life.
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 f tn i was on the depo provera twice last year, after the second shot i got chest pains and heart pulputations,i went to docs who rushed me to hospital, all my tests came back fine other than a stressed heart, they sent me home with no answers, now 10 months after my last shot iv only just got my period back but its coming every 8 days and iv still got the chest pains and heart pulputations and im getting sick of it, just wondering how long does it realy take to get fully out of system???

Avatar f tn Hi I have taken depo-provera for close to 2years after my first boy who is now 6 yrs old so I can concentrate on my professional life (stopped over 9 months ago to try to conceive with my boyfriend). I thought it was gonna take longer but I am now 11 weeks pregnant (baby had great heart beat as per first ultrasound) I am worried if there will be any trouble with the pregnancy or the baby after birth. Does anyone know about this subject?

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 I am a 30 year old female smoker. I have 3 questions concerning Depo-Provera and PVC's 1) is the depo shot going to have an adverse effet on my PVC's? No, in fact this may improve the symptoms. 2) I have a swollen atrium from a recent pregnancy and do you think it will have an adverse effect on that as well? Probably not 3) Are Depo shots heart safe? If you continue to smoke you increase your risk of MI, stroke and clots.
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 n tn But everyone is different and reacts differently to depo. Some people even get pregnant while on depo or once they stop it. Usually it stays in your system from 12-18 months. I stopped depo in Nov 04 and started BCP's to regualte my periods. Then in Aug 05 I stopped BCP's to TTC. Because the depo was still in my system and I just got of BCP's I didnt have a period without the help of provera until Dec 05. I now am almost 21 weeks pregnant.
551587 tn?1215023083 I am 20 years old and had a pacemaker implanted almost eight months ago to correct SVT and A-Fib after two unsuccessful cardiac ablations. I began taking Depo Provera about six months ago. About three weeks ago, I began experiencing sharp chest pain on almost a daily basis; however, it generally subsides after 20-30 minutes. During this time, I can also feel my heart racing. I have heard before that Depo can mess with your heart and lungs. Is this a possibility?
5108300 tn?1371830920 When i feel nausea i get hot flashes and i just want to lay down and i lay down for hours and hours at a time. I also get irregular heart beats and fast heart beats. I was perfectly fine until i got this 3rd injection. Now, I called where i got the shot from and spoke with a nurse there and she said since this is my 3rd injection my body should be use to it. So now i am very stressed out that this is not the depo shot doing this to me.
Avatar n tn I got preggo on depo and he is 19 months now and he is healthy and rambunkshus let me tell you!~ Anyways he did have a low birth weight i had him at 34 weeks almost 35 and he was 5 lbs 3 oz. I think if i would of went the full 38 to 40 weeks he would of been a big baby!!!
Avatar n tn Heart palpitations to me means a sensation a your heart is skipping beats. Some women also mean they can feel their heart beating. Some women use the term to mean rapid heart beat. None of these are side effects of Depo-Provera. Most of us can become aware of our heart beat: for example, as one is falling asleep and feeling relaxed. This is normal. Irregularity of heart beat or rapid heart beat without explantion (for example, climbing stairs) can happen randomly to normal people.
Avatar m tn She gained about 75lbs, despite having and continuing abnormally healthy eating and exercise habits. Even her personality changed. While she was on the Depo Provera we moved cross country and we ended up with terrible insurance and new doctors. By the time she saw her new doctor, it was late fall 2012, and she asked to go off the Depo. The new doctor prescribed Lutera to transition off the Depo. That was fall of 2012. Since then, she has not noticed any changes.
Avatar n tn I knew nothing about the side effects of the depo and now I Know that my mood swings and hot flashes racing heart beat nausa and more recent vomiting may be self caused do to not educating myself on the dangeous side effects of the depo shot.
Avatar f tn I have a question for you. Have you ever been surgically diagnosed with endo or have you been on the depo shot and other period suppressed medications for a while? This is important because if you are not treating the disease through excision (cutting out) you are only using these meds as a band-aide. Lupron is hit or miss with some people. I have met some that have horrifying side effects like you describe with hair etc.
Avatar n tn I was on depo for about a month after my son was born, and I said never again. I'm now having alot of problems and I'm not sure if its from that or just other things. I would say go get checked out to be safe. I have my period that last me for 2 months straight but this time it lasted 2 months straight took 1 week off, started back up and now its still on an every other day routine.
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 It's possible. Some of the side effects of depo-provera are breast pain and nausea among other things though. Unfortunately it looks like you're going to have to wait to get confirmation. My heart goes out to you.
Avatar f tn Well I took provera on 11/12 ended 11/21 and now Its 11/28 im only discharging when I wipe and Its brown. I havent had a menstrual cycle since 05/10/12 and this was my first attempt of provera in October they checked my hpt to see any signs of pregnancy they said they were to low to be prego. I have irregular periods but dont understand Why provera didnt work ???? Im only 26 my fiance and I are trying to have kids someday..
Avatar n tn I was on provera in Dec 05 and Jan 06 and I now am 9 weeks pregnant. Provera used to be given as a pregnancy test. If you took it and had a period then you were not pregnant and if you took it and didnt have a period then you were pregnant. Provera or the generic that you are talking of is pretty much progesterone and it will help your uterus. Dont worry it wont harm a pregnancy. Best of luck!
Avatar n tn Depo Provera messes with your hormones and either you can bleed constantly once stopping or not bleed at all. It can take about 12-18 months to get out of your system (however this is not true for everyone, some get pregnant the 1st month they stop the shot). I was bleeding constantly while on the shot and as soon as it was time for me to get my next one I switched to BCP's. My dr said this was fine and it would help my periods become regular after the depo.
