Depo provera and progesterone

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera and progesterone


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 n tn I was on Depo Provera for about 8 years when my husband and I decided to try for another baby. I received my last injection in September 2006. I was pregnant by March 07 but miscarried at 5 weeks. We waited until December to try again and just miscarried that one at 9 weeks. After having 2 healthy children with no pregnancy complications, I am led to believe that this is an effect of the Depo injections.
Avatar n tn Anyone knows if .75 is a normal level of progesterone. I was on depo-provera for almost 4 years, and been out since february. Still to this day I haven't had a perior. I just got my results for the progesterone levels test but I do not know if what is .75, good, bad. Please, help.
Avatar f tn I've currently been on the Depo Provera shot for 2 months and recently, I've considered taking diet pills in addition to exercise. The diet pill I am considering is Zantrex-3. Will the diet pills counteract with my birth control and make it ineffective?
Avatar n tn To re-hash, I was put on Depo-Provera for endometriosis. I'm at the end of the second month of its three month effective range, and everything's been fine so far. (I had surgery on 5/17, light bleeding until about the beginning of the second week of June, then nothing since *yay*). For the past 3-4 days, I've been getting that 'pre-period' feeling (slightly *ugh*, little crampy on the side where the cyst was, and mucousy discharge.
Avatar n tn I was on the Depo Provera shot for 6 months. I was due for my last shot on Oct. 19 but did not get it in hopes of TTC. A few days ago, I bled for just one day then nothing since. Should I interpret this as the beginning of my cycle coming back or just spotting? Any similar experience? Thanks!
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 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 m tn well i thought ok this is my mind messing with me but now i have been freaking out i am supposed to get my period in a week but just got the depo provera 2 days ago now i have been eating everything in sight, headaches, breast tenderness like never before but my main concern is me peeing every 30 min and i have wat seems a bulge i dont know if its the depo or if its a pregnancy and im wondering if i should go get a ultrasound to ease my mind.
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.
432411 tn?1206475709 I took depo provera for about 6 years, starting in 2000. Just over three months after I stopped taking the shots I developed a nodule in my neck which was eventually diagnosed as thyroid cancer. I have absolutely no history of thyroid problems of any kind in family and I had had no problems before the depo.
Avatar f tn I'm hoping that because i've been on a similar progesterone contraceptive before, my side effects won't take as long to go away/will be less severe because my body is kind of already used to progesterone. This is probably a bit far fetched but I know depo provera takes about 12-18 months to fully leave the body. Will the side effects at least be similar? thanks for any help!
Avatar f tn Hello, i had my son in 2008 and went on depo provera i was on it a year then i stopped then went back on it just for 1 shot then i went on the combined pill. I am now 25 and my son is 4, i have been having unprotected sex since i stopped birth control with no result. Im getting very worried. I have regular periods and i ovulate but still no baby.....
Avatar n tn I was on depo provera and gained 40 pounds in 6 months... my dr. told me that the hormones that are in it mess with your body bad... If i were you i would get off it and try a differnt means of birth control... It has also been proven to increasse your chance of Osteoporosis! I also had the same problem as you... almost spotting for 3 months, when that happened (along with the weight gain) my dr. made me get off it...
Avatar n tn I was put on Provera 11 days ago and I have still not gotten my period. I've been experiencing nausea and food aversions so my doctor sent me for a blood test to see if I'm pregnant. Me jumping the gun, I took a home pregnancy test and it came out positive. Now I am worried I may be pregnant. I'm afraid the side affects of the Provera would cause serious birth defects as I've been reading.
1856888 tn?1325186544 Today I'm suppose to go pick up the clomid (for the second time) and the Provera. I was just wondering do I have to wait until the 12th again to take the Provera again or can I start taking it today since I skipped a month?
Avatar n tn I got scared--what if I was pregnant and I took Provera? But before I took Provera, my blood pregnancy test was negative. My doctor also wondered why Provera did not make my period come. They took all the tests they could and found out I was normal, including ultrasound to see if everything is doing okay in there. Two days after my ultrasound, my period came.
Avatar n tn I am inclined to say that your symptoms are side effects of taking Provera. But if you are pg, and you take this Provera, it won't necessarily cause a miscarriage. says there is an increased risk of birth defects but I didn't see anything about miscarriage. I would be scared of that but apparently that's not what Provera would do. I hope you get some answers soon, or at least your period so that you can finally rest easier. Good luck!
Avatar n tn you can always call your pharmacist and ask to make sure. My husband and I are TTC and I took the Depo shot twice and stopped 11/04 and then started BCP till 8/05 and havent had a period since except with provera. I think the Depo is still in my system and is screwing everything up. I hope the provera works for you and best of luck with the clomid.
1219499 tn?1410753330 I have recently just had another miscarrige/blighted ovum (3rd one) and have been reading on the internet a lot about progesterone and the important role it plays in pregnancy. I suggest to all women out there who have had the same problems as me to get their progesterone levels tested and try using progesterone cream. Doctor's don't naturally test this as part of their ante natal tests - you have to specifically ask for it.
Avatar f tn my doctor said i havent had a period because i previously used the birth control depo prevera(last shot was in september 2011) i had a very light period in december off and on for six days and nothing since then. about a week and a half ago i thought i was getting ready to start my period. there was brown stuff on the toilet paper wasnt alot and only lasted about two days and i would have cramps right about my uterus where my scar is from my c-section.
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 f tn I wonder what the difference between the two depo shots are and I wonder why my gyno recommended the other depo shot if the depo-subq provera 104 shot is specific for endo ?
Avatar n tn I am having very heavy bleeding (changing every 15 min at times) Thick, dark, large clotting and severe cramping and pain. I have seen my family physician and an OB-GYN. The answers there are "it's because of the shot, everyone is different, it will stop in time." I have been put on 2 different pills. One of them was three pills a day, progressing to one pill a day. I am now on progesterone for five days. I have taken 3 of these pills and there is no relief at all.
Avatar n tn I'm 15 and my momma put me on depo and i thought it was safe and so did my boyfriend but like weeks after we had sex i started feel funny i took a test it said no but i keep feeling bad like morning sickness and head aches and others.. and i' m eating more den i really do is it just a side effect or what? and i got my second shot wit out check is that going to hurt the baby if so... i really not ready for no kid in my life but i did what i did and now i got to take care of it if so..!!
Avatar f tn Knowing that Depo-provera ( the birth control shot) has provera in the name, can that also cause breast cancer?
