Depo provera and men

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and men


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 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 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 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 I had two chocolate cysts that were around 6 cm x 6 cm x 6 cm, the size of a tennis ball. My gynecologist wants me to take depo provera until I am in menopause. I am only 41. I refuse to take it afraid of all the side effects. I agree we are almost made to feel like we HAVE to take it. My surgeon was very forceful about me having to take it. She does not know I never filled the prescription. Not even willing to take Alesse the birth control pill. I am just waiting and seeing.

Can I stop taking provera and start combination OC pills to stop the bleeding ? will it help me..I am having lot of tiredness and fatigue due to bleeding so long ..please advise and help me..thanks much!
Avatar n tn I have been off of it for almost a month and I have had no signs of a cycle. This is my second time using depo and the first time I came off of depo I had my period within 3 weeks. This time nothing. What should I expect? If its not the same as last time.

Avatar m tn I was diagnosed some time ago and since then I have been on a series of birth control; all forms i.e...the patch,nuva-ring,depo-provera, and just about every pill you can think of. Not only did they not work but they caused the worst side effects and I am not allergic to anything. I have been controlling my diet for some time now watching my carb intake and was on glucophage for a while with no results.
5856747 tn?1403352282 I am a young vibrant woman. I take care of my appearance and I know that men like me, but something has stopped working properly. Please, please help me!” First of all what sticks you about this questioner as odd, or as possibly the root cause of her problem? And secondly, what further information would you like to have before reaching a conclusion and offering some sound advice? Let’s deal with the second question first.
Avatar n tn thinks either adenomyosis or endo, but she told me if yaz doesnt help the next step might be the depo provera shot I dont know much about it but that may be a possibility for you, or possibly even lupron depo she suggested, even though I think you get many side effects from it. It's like a fake menopause! Well good luck lemme know how things works out!
Avatar n tn I've been taking 500 mg/day of metformin. Just wondering if any of you have taken this, and if so, have you experienced any weight loss?
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
503727 tn?1210442710 As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
Avatar f tn We have been trying for a year and seven months. We ordered the fertility blend for women and men, have you heard any good news about it?? Best of wishes. keep me posted!!
Avatar n tn I would suggest you wait till you and BOYFRIEND are married and have a home, I had first baby young and trust me it is not easy I wish I had waited now I am in my 30's and having babies it is so much more fun.. I also thought my boyfriend was my forever and he ended up being no where to be found when baby came I raised her 18 years on my own.. Just something to think about.
298579 tn?1192250448 The only thing I have seen that helps the pain is an herbal wrap that you heat up(you can get them @ walmart), and I lay that on my stomach. I have been on the depo shot for four years, I have asked if this is a contributing factor and have been told no. I have no kids. I hope someone comes up with an explanation, because I am too young to be giving up on my sex life!
Avatar n tn I took Geritol for about 3 weeks as well as my husband, then i thought i was pregnant and switched over to prenatal pills, and sure enough i was! Im currently 7 weeks pregnant. Good luck to you!! My pregnancy isnt going so well though(not geritol related) but hopefully yours will be better!!
363243 tn?1331037450 One day I started doing more research on the net and found out about a medecine that block the men hormones called ALDACTONE generic SPIRONLACTONE and read about it and wanted to try it and this is what saved me and made me feel like the way I felt once before... Now I took the generic before and also took the brand name . In my opinion the brand might cost a little bit more but it is the best because all of that breast tenderness the side effect are minimal compare to the generic.
Avatar f tn My acupuncturist and the specialist seem to think these symptoms are a result from having bladder infections in the past (I have a sensitive bladder), DOES ANYONE THAT HAS A SENSITIVE BLADDER, or have had many bladder infections in the past, and HAVE SIMILAR symptoms as me? I've seen 2 doctors and 1 specialist, none have really told me anything and ALL tests always come back negative (I was tested for herpes as well.
1000392 tn?1294097512 I used to be such a good sleeper back in the day. I'd go to bed at 10pm and be able to wake up at 10am and feel refreshed. Now, I can't fall asleep until 7-8am and sleep until 4-5pm. It has ruined my life. I've been crying myself to sleep for the past 3 weeks now. This idea of giving endo patients Depo Lupron is a mistake. Who in their right mind would think it's normal to put a 23 year old in menopause?! So now I have to go through menopause not once but twice?
Avatar n tn I took Depo Provera when I was 17, and it made me feel WEIRD. I had migraines, and a lot of spot bleeding.... Are there any brand names for the mini pill, or is it just called "the mini pill"? I don`t know much about it... Thanks....
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 f tn Remember doctors are humans too, and sometimes they forget that we are not doctors, and cannot afford some of these costly procedures, especially if they are not needed. I was on Lupron-Depo and Depo-Provera, Lupron is like a pseudo-menopause, some (not all cause we are all different) have night sweats, mood-changes etc. I did not notice such problems and Lupron worked short term for me. However longer term I was on Depo-Provera. It work fine.
362249 tn?1441318618 I guess they would try to get married then in this case and then we would need it like me and my DH have to do with the INS (immigration peeps) they would need proof of a relationship!! So i guess that wouldn't work but I think they need to do something!! Telling minors its ok to have sex cus there's a thing called plan B if NOT ok!! They have no idea how dangerous sex is and what all can happen!! Has any1 watched that movie called Children Of Men?
1284894 tn?1272175054 Went to my GP last week and he gave me more oxycontin controlled release,1 every 12 hours and as these are only lasting about 6 hours, he also gave me endone to take in between. I also have to take 2 panadol every 4 hours. I also had my first depo provera shot this week.It was the 4th day of my period and my period was very heavy, but the next day I had only a few spots of bleeding and today it is a little bit of brown spotting.
Avatar f tn I notice most of us have received that. From what I understand, the seretonin issue is the biggest one, and that men and women react and need different levels, even in treatment. To the gal that is taking extascy, may I say that one of the combinations that can cause anxiety is the combination you listed. Can't take those kinds of drugs and not expect problems. Meds are probably needed, and finding the right one is a journey in itself.
Avatar n tn ) Is your new birth control the depo provera shot? That CAUSES irregularity in bleeding. 2.) Even if it's not depo, yes, your body COULD be reacting to the new introduction of hormones. 3.) If you just are recovering from a yeast infection, YOU DO NOT WANT TO USE A TAMPON!!!! YOU CAN CAUSE THE YEAST TO STAY AND MULTIPLY EVEN IF IT'S ALMOST GONE!!!!! 4.
Avatar m tn When I came off of Depo Provera, my cycles were all over the map for 2 or 3 months at least. And if you have been using protection, it is unlikely she is pregnant, providing you are using it properly. If she is a week late,there is a small possibility she is pregnant. Regardless, taking a home pregnancy test right now will at least serve to put your mind at ease, the wondering and worrying are always the worst. If in fact she is pregnant, please don't worry too much.
Avatar n tn have that drink girl!!!!!!!! I will drink one for ya!
