Depo provera and night sweats

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and night sweats


Avatar f tn Started getting really bad headaches about 3 years ago, bad anxiety 2 years ago and now I have the night sweats etc. I'Ve never really linked it to the depo until now but the benefits of being on it were so strong I am reluctant to come off it!
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 f tn I had only taken one depo provera shot and was due to have my second one between June 30 and July 13, I didn't take the second one. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex July 2nd-5th every day. Is it possible that I'm pregnant? I have had slight bleeding almost every day since but it recently stopped, it was just like spotting, not a flow, only a tinge of color when wiping. I am having many symptoms of pregnancy (nausea, extreme fatigue, headaches, bleeding gums, etc).
Avatar n tn When I finally looked online to find out what was wrong with me (no period for 6 months, difficulty sleeping, incredible hot flashes and night sweats, excessive weight gain, a lot of crying, etc.) menopause kept coming up as one of the possible causes. After extensive testing at my doctor’s office I was told I was menopausal.
Avatar n tn Woman should be informed more of the consequences of taking Depo-provera and really Understand!! The impact this shot can and will have on your life. Why destroy your life to prevent one. Read up and become more knowledgable about the side effects the posion you are putting in your body. Everyday you loose a piece of your womanhood some women unfortunately will never get back.
Avatar f tn I have 2 children, 10 years old and 7 years old, and have hot flashes during the day, and worse at night, along with cold sweats. The reason the doctor insisted on the depo was because of maternal family history of estrogen-fed breast cancer. My question is whether the depo shot is inducing menopause hot flashes, or do I need to be concerned about other things, such as cancer. One sign of cancer is night sweats. I also have unexplained bruising sometimes.
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 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 For me, the hot flashes were AWEFUL! I had at LEAST 5 a day and at LEAST 3 night sweats every night. My last shot was March 5 and I still have no period, still no baby, and still hot flashes. Not as bad as when I was on treatment, but they are still there. My husband and I never used any protection ever since we've been together, about 10 years. And no babies. When I was little, if someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I ALWAYS answered, "a mommy.
Avatar f tn I have been on that for 3 weeks now and I have been bleeding so heavy the last 2 weeks and I am having the worse night sweats ever, I wake up thinking I wet the bed because my entire body is drenched in sweat. I am at a loss. I dont know what to do. I seriously cannot handle this anymore, the hormones make me moody, angry, I cry over everything and everything, and my poor boyfriend (who is amazing with all of this by the way) gets the brunt of it.
Avatar f tn Although there are no studies to benefit its use, it is advised that all women on Depo-Provera get adequate calcium and Vitamin D (through diet and/or supplements) to help prevent osteoporosis.
746098 tn?1232916561 I had the same symptoms as yourself and was diagnosed with depression, i wasn't depressed it was the side effects of the depo -provera. Also if you do ever plan on having kids it could take up to years after coming off of this pill for your body to regulate. I regret ever taking this for of contraception as my body is still completely messed up. Hope this helps!!
1344197 tn?1392822771 Claims of weight loss, increasing energy, improve mood, are safer, and many others have been made. Hopefully this article can help you answer questions and dismiss many of the myths surrounding this highly published, highly marketed topic. The term Bioidentical Hormones is not a medical term, it is a marketing term used to imply an exact copy of the hormones produced in the body.
1305767 tn?1361196276 31 and have been noticing that my pelvic pain, cramps, painful intercourse, and low back aches are returning. Now on top of that I've recently experience night sweats every night, and bouts of hot flashes and cold chills. The night sweats could be due to having the furnace on but my husband doesn't wake all sweaty so I'm not sure about that theory. I wake up and my clothes are soaked and I'm freezing from the sweat evaporating off my body.
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 f tn brown periods lasting a week, leg weakness(feels like growing pains), cramping, sharp abdominal pain on and off, hot and cold sweats. I took the depo provera shot the beginning of January and didn't have my period for four months. When I finally got my period it lasted exactly two weeks, started out being all brown blood and continued into regular blood. Through out the time I have had the worst sharp pains bringing me to my knees because it hurt so bad but only for a few seconds.
Avatar f tn Recently I have started depo provera and have experienced chills, which made me very paranoid, no night sweats. have tested negative for Gonorreah and chylamydia, and took a oraquick about 3 weeks ago that said negative, 3 weeks ago I also became sexually active with my partner, and he now has a cold (which I also might have from him) but in my head I'm convinced it's ars. Someone please put my fears to rest!

Avatar n tn about 2 weeks before i normally start i get UGLY, sore nipples(never before) nausious, extremely tired, starting early if not late, severe headaches, i may spot several days before i start, going longer, stopping and starting.... most of these started 4-5 months ago...i've had night sweats for a long time(years) and hot flashes(thought that it was dep. medi.).
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.
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 am always nauseaous, hot flashes, night sweats, not able to sleep and i am on currently on my 3rd depo shot
Avatar f tn sumpin about wd and menopause exacerbates each other/or even if u r not in menopause cos i am not/on depo provera/..i had the sweats worse when i was using than after i quit..the 3-4 day patches/estrogen have virtually eliminated it...
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.

Avatar n tn Im going to go to doctor as a walk in and wait all day if i have to i started cramping bad last night, And i think i know whats coming next;.
Avatar f tn And nothing seems to help. I've tried aspri - doesn't work. I try massaging my breast and shoulders and that seems to help a tiny bit. Usually the pain is very dull...but one night I woke up in excruciating pain for about 10 seconds, then it went back to being dull. I'm 24, and I am being treated for Anxiety/Panic Disorder. My Psychiatrist does not think it's related. Does ANYONE have ANY ideas about what could be going on with me?!?!?!
