Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and lactation


Avatar f tn I have a 7mm protrusion coming from my pituitary that in all clinical reality should be called a tumor. There is also a void in my pituitary that was left from "old tumor that out grew it's blood supply". I have been dealing with the railroad spike in the head headaches for years. They are now controlled with medication. I have been experiencing severe joint pain a week before my period and as soon as menstruation starts it is gone. Completely.
Avatar n tn Hi! I had my first baby in January of 2006 and I got the depo provera shot 2 days after she was born. It lasted for 3 months, and then I had to get another one... But I decided not to because after I had the baby I gained 50 pounds in 3 months because of the shot. So I went on the pills... 3 months after I stopped the Depo, I was pregnant again! So in my case it didn't take long to conceive after getting the stupid thing. I hope everything works out for you, and you get what your wishing for!!!!

Avatar f tn found negative pregnancy test but almost 3X normal prolactin levels (the hormone mainly associated with lactation, and that did happen at the beginning). I've had mood swings, cravings, and crazy heartburn. SO -- The home test was about a month ago, blood test around the same time, is it possible that I am pregnant with all these negative results?

Avatar n tn I'm in SouthWest), our teams gave us different advice than your teams have given you and so it's quite possible that your condition is more involved. Neither of us was close to any lactation process. As your docs have told you, our annual mammo's and monthly self exams are a bit tough to interpret, but we've both been told that mastopathic lumps may well recur. Neither of us has had subsequent surgeries to date, but that picture could well change.
Avatar n tn Amenorrhoea (BE), amenorrhea (AmE), or amenorrhœa, is the absence of a menstrual period in a woman of reproductive age. Physiological states of amenorrhoea are seen during pregnancy and lactation (breastfeeding), the latter also forming the basis of a form of contraception known as the lactational amenorrhea method. Outside of the reproductive years there is absence of menses during childhood and after menopause. Amenorrhoea is a symptom with many potential causes.
Avatar f tn He had a really hard time latching correctly and would fall asleep at the breast after a few minutes - this meant that he was constantly feeding. I went to a lactation consultant and things have been improving but my nipples are still somewhat sore (not painful anymore but sore). Is anyone else experiencing this? I had to pump for a while to supplement and I also had to supplement with some formula (because he had lost too much weight).
Avatar n tn I speak from experience when I say it is possible for WB to influence your cycle. Everything was fine for me on WB until I upped my dose - then I had mood swings and missed periods. After 3 months without a period, they found my prolactin (hormone that deals in lactation and suppression of periods amongst other things) levels were twice the far-end-of-normal limit.
Avatar n tn ) but this month it hasn't come and I have sore boobs and they feel so heavy now and i'm dischargeing clearish stuff and i'm also having mild cramps off and on. Acouple of days ago I was having ligament pulling down below my belly if I moved wrong or if I sneezed, like I did when I was pregnant with my son. I think my last period was at the beginning of Oct. Well i took a test this morning when my hubby got up for work at 5:30 and it came out negative, could it have been to soon???
Avatar n tn Did you get any medical diagnosis yet? I gained 22 pounds in 4 days and we have ruled out failing kidneys and heart problems and my doctor is clueless.
Avatar n tn So I demanded a blood test and ultrasound and the baby was indeed there. She is now 7 years old! Hope it turns out for you!
Avatar n tn i have had 3 iuis and going for my 4 today, with the other 3 even though i wasnt pregnant i had very sore breasts and felt very bloted i learned after having so many iuis to expect that i guess that comes from the hcg shot, i never was nausiuos though,that could be a good sign some woman know it the minute they become pregnant,and you could be one of them,i know the two week wait can be unbearable,but try and hang in there and try not to take a hpt test for a few more days,unlike i did and get a
