Depo provera and missed periods

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and missed periods


Avatar n tn It could take a few months or up to a year. Just depend on your body.
Avatar m tn Agreed. I even missed periods when I was in the throes of my addiction to opiates (heroin). A lot of people don't know that it can stop the menstrual cycle. That may be why everything is all messed up now. For instance, I had hypothyroidism while on the Depo but now have hyperthyroidism now that I'm off of it and no longer using (My anniversary date is 10/2011).
Avatar f tn If the test is negative, I would chalk it up to the Depo shot and wait and see what happens during the next few months. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn Just from my experence I was on depo shot and you have signs of pregnancy and are not pregnant and there is no way possiable you could feel you baby kick so soon you don't start feeling any movement until your about 4months pregnant I had a baby about 5months ago tomorrow is 5months and well I didn't actually really feel him move until I was 4months along maybe a lil ferther and I had a m/c on the depo shot the shot was in my systom but the shot killed the baby well anyways I don't think a baby
737515 tn?1252556023 Is it possible to get pregnant after one depo provera injection. My boyfriend and I do not use any other method of protection and he does not pulll out because we have been together for a while and the risk of STD's is not there. I missed my period 3 weeks ago and im a bit worried. I am normally very regular.I know Depo can stop periods all together but when i used to recieve depo years ago i still had a period :/ Im currently spotting and crampy.
Avatar n tn Are you talking about the Depo-Provera injection (contraceptive injection that can take periods off completly)?
Avatar n tn c and diagnosed having a molar pregnancy. so that was in jan 2011. I immediately in february got on depo provera (birth control) and missed my due back in may 2011. Ive just started to have a normal menustration in july since all of that and we have been having sex and still no positive test. should i be worried yet ?
3141308 tn?1342907689 I have missed my Depo-Provera injection for seventeen days. I was put on Depo for ovarian cyst I form around the time I ovulate. ( I've been on it for three years.) When it wouls be close to my next injection, I could sometimes feel the cyst pop. I haven't gotten that yet and I haven't even spotted. (witch I do often.) I am sexual active. Do I have to wait to get my period until I am able to get my shot? Could I be pregnant? My birth control office is closed, along with my regular doctor.
Avatar f tn I was on depo vera and I had sex 2 weeks after like my doctor said I could. I was off it for 2 years before I finally got pregnant. I dont advise that type of birth control just because I gained soooo much wait and I worked out at the gym. Also caused alot of health problems for me and once I was ready to have a baby it took me forever!!
Avatar n tn hello, my name is marjory and i was on depo for about 9 months today is 12/18/06 i was pregnant in may of 05 and had an abortion in aug of 05 and then went straight to depo and had my last shot on april 06 so that whole time i did not have any periods now i have been off the shot for about 5 or six months and have been having sex every day and hoping to get pregnant do you think i will be able to??
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 f tn I had my first and only Depo shot in July 2014 and that ran out in October of 2014. My period came in September and then I missed my periods until December 2015. After December, I started getting a period every 3-ish weeks until march 2015. Since March, I've seen absolutely no trace of a period. I've filled out pregnancy after several home tests, a doctor's blood test and an ultrasound 20-ish weeks after my last sexual encounter.
Avatar n tn If you have no problems or even if you have heavy periods, don’t go for the pill or Depo. You will regret it. My sister always had and has heavy periods and her Gynaecologist didn’t recommend her the pill and I am telling her that she should be happy to have her body natural. My mum used to have heavy periods and she never used the pill and she survived and I will add my grandmothers as well. DON’T WHAT TO GET PREGNANT USE THE CONDOM, IT IS STILL OUT THERE.
1132438 tn?1260676599 I have not been on any other birth control since and I am not sexually active. I have not had a cycle since BEFORE I went on the Depo back in 2000/2001.
Avatar n tn I'm looking for the protacol for administering depo-provera with adol. patient.If anyone can help I'd appreciate it.
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.
Avatar n tn It was the Provera that did it, so just fyi for those that are ttc and having problems with irregular periods that Provera did work, even thought its not what thats supposed to be used for, it caused me to ovulate lol my husband and I were so excited. I missed my period like normal and didn't think anything of it then missed another month and decided to take a test and wammo preggo. I am 11 weeks so good luck all of you who are ttc.
Avatar n tn I have PCOS and I havent had my period for ywo years and i could probly count how maby periods I have had my whole life on my hands and feet and I'm 34. I was put on Provera and I have taken my thrid pill and I hope it works. I have one daughter and she is 13 now but I have never used BC and I have no more children. I was told that if you take provera within the first four months of pregnacy that the baby could have birth defects. PCOS is a horrible condition and it smashes alot of dreams.
Avatar f tn I had my daughter in january and was put on th depo shot (birthcontroll). I stop takig in it jun and july i had a normal period.! Well in aug an sep i missed my periond.! I took home pregnancy test an they all said neg. im having so of the pregnancy symtoms like sleepy. Hight temp, mood changes, an wanting differen thing to eat. Could th test be wrong an i am pregnant?
Avatar m tn there are several birth controls that can stop menstration. Depo-provera and implanon for sure will keep the body from making the uterine lining and therefore no menstration.
Avatar f tn Hello, If you stop getting Depo-Provera injections, your period usually returns within 3 to 10 months but sometimes it may take 12-18 mths. Your periods and fertility return after that. So chances of pregnancy are less. 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 n tn My hubby thinks because I missed 2 periods that my body is definatley 'getting ready' and will happen soon.
Avatar f tn I've always had very irregular periods and they've been short when they do come. I took the depo shot almost two years ago and only took two rounds so 6 months worth. After that I never got a period again until this past july. I got one the day I had app. With my obgyn. Crazy huh? Not only did I get one but it lasted 7 days. She told me i had pcos. but she prescribed me Provera to start a period if I missed in Septembe, I missed sept. And still havent started this month.
