Depo provera and heavy bleeding

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and heavy bleeding


Avatar n tn You can get irregular bleeding when you first start the Depo-Provera, but if you have never had this heavy bleeding before you should consult your doctor as soon as possible. They can check some hormones and examine you to make sure everything is OK.
Avatar f tn i have tried everything, from lupron, to laparoscopies, to yaz, to smoking marijuana - currently i am on Depo Provera and have been for the past year and a half. I am noticing a lot of side affects from this as time goes on, and unfortunately for me this has been the only thing that even remotely helps, and i still have a lot of pain.
Avatar n tn * antibiotics DO decrease the effect of any birth control, whether it is oral, topical, or by injection. * bleeding can and does occur during pregnancy, and esp. w/ Depo * pregnancy can and does occur during Depo, and can cause some defects to growing fetus * DEPO CAN DECREASE THE HCG LEVELS There are many more side effects you can experience, so please go to the site and read the facts, not the rumors you hear. www.depoprovera.
Avatar n tn Since I've been off of it I have been spotting constantly and recently the bleeding has gotten really heavy. Since the heavy bleeding, I've been experiencing cramps and lost of appetite. Is this a normal side effect from getting off of the birth control? What else could cause this cotinuous bleeding?
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 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 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 Hello and hope you are doing well. It is common to have irregular bleeding and/or prolonged bleeding with depo use. This side effect is usually common during the first 3 months of use. If the bleeding is heavy and prolonged it can result in anemia and weakness. It is best to discuss with your doctor about this irregular or prolonged bleeding on Depo Provera .A complete medical evaluation may be necessary if the symptoms are severe and persistent. I sincerely hope it helps. Take care and regards!
Avatar f tn Some days it’s light and some days it’s heavy. I don’t know if it’s my period or just withdrawal bleeding from that one Depo shot. On 2/5/18, I had sex for the first time since November while I was spotting lightly. We used a condom and it broke at some point and he kept going for like a minute and put another one on till he finished. He says he didn’t *** in me but I am not sure. It’s been 3 days since it happened. Today I started getting bad cramps in my stomach...should I get plan b....
Avatar f tn When I was 16 I got on the depo cause I've heard great things about it and even the drs. said it'd be the best for me because I had major migraines where I would see flashing lights and every part of my body would go numb, the said it was due to my menstral cycle. So I started the depo and I had a period for 2 months one HUGE migraine for 3 days and the everything stopped, Well I have given birth to 2 kids and I wasn't on the depo after the first so this is new to me.
Avatar m tn I had my period Aug 31- Sept 4 I had unprotected sex mid Sept and took plan B next day (Sept 10) by September 15 i notice some spotting and on the 16th and 17th it was very heavy flow it has finally gone down(19th). I was wondering if this was my period or just a symptom of Plan B. I visited the doctors & took pregnancy test which came to be negative and got the Depo on the 19th as well, Is it likely that It was my period, if so would the depo shot be effective immediately?
Avatar f tn i decided to not go on any other birth control for awhile. What are the side effects of coming off the Depo Provera and is it ok to not be on any birthcontrol at all for awhile??
Avatar f tn Im taking the provera pills. I take BC to help regulate my periods for the next two months but I haven't stopped this period yet.
Avatar n tn How was depo provera for you?
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'm afraid to go off of it because of the delayed heavy bleeding and fearful to stay on it because of my depression. I can only cross my fingers and hope that I feel, and stay, happy.
Avatar f tn You should change birth control. You bleeding so much can lead to anemia. And bleeding non stop for 6 months can really take its toll on you. plz call your doctor.
Avatar f tn Im 22 years old, i had the Shot on 9/24/14 I started my period on 10/20/14 and its been a non-stop bleeding its not as heavy as a normal period but its not too light either and its very red. So i been bleeding for 14 days now non-stop and my next shot is on 12/17/14 but im planning to change my method because its causing problems between my personal life and its driving me crazy having blood all this time . And the cramps are even worse i cant take it anymore it feels like its never gonna end.
Avatar n tn i about 2 wks. late and i have had extremely heavy bleeding and passing clots and tissue. i have not had a period since i've been taking depo. i have slight cramps. i've only had this kind of thing happen once before when i had a miscarriage. i'm sure i gave the shot properly in my upper arm muscle. what would cause this sudden change? could it be build up from over the years? i called my dr. and requested a refill, but he is a new dr.
Avatar m tn Her periods always come on time and always lasts 5 days, first 2 days heavy bleeding, 3 days light bleeding. She never has PMS and almost never suffer from menstrual cramps. So her current period of 7 days is out of the norm .

Avatar n tn i must of had my period solid for about a month and even after that i would just start bleeding randomly. And if i wasn't bleeding i usually had this brown discharge stuff. nasty. So i decided not to get my second depo shot. That was about two months ago and to this day I still have brown discharge and really out of wack periods. All i can tell you is DO NOT get the depo shot!
Avatar n tn He came back saying that this doctor had been studying it, and found no proof that there is a correlation to calcium loss and depo provera use. I got back on depo in January. I've now had my period pretty bad for about 10 days. Two months ago, I had it for 29 days. This isn't normal for me either. I've never had this. I'm getting annoyed. Ruined underthings because I have no clue when it will happen. I wish there was something out there that you could take.
Avatar f tn I have been bleeding very very heavy non stop since I started it. It stops for a few days and then starts right back up again. I gush blood and soak through pads. Huge blood clots fall right out of me and are the size of a medium banana! Very dark red in color. What's wrong with me? Please help!
202436 tn?1326477933 i was on the depo provera for a while and in my own personal oppinion i hated it i gained lots of weight, major mood swings, no sex drive at all i felt so depressed when i was on it i think i had 3 shots then gave it up the only good thing about the depo you dont have af. some people may like and may have a different opinion but i hated it.
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.
1145402 tn?1264376172 At the end of Nov 09 I actually got a few period free days, before they started up again. My bleeding has been very heavy the past few days and I've been passing very stringy and firm clots and been cramping a lot, today noticeably on my right side. I have also been urinating a more frequently. For the last few weeks I've also had very sore breasts. Last week my nipples were so sore I could hardly bare to wear a bra, or put my duvet over them at night. Other notes to mention.
Avatar n tn I have the exact same problem, Im also on Provera and Clomid, you should not be bleeding after stopping the clomid. As far as the time to make love, my doctor told my Husband and I to be very active on days 10-20, (I was taking Clomid days 3-7) so for you it would be days 11-21 of your cycle. Be very active on those days, and I would very very strongly reccomend an ovulation predictor kit, they work very well, so you know for sure when you are ovulating. Sorry a lot of info.
