Avatar f tn Hi. I had my last depo shot in august and I just finnished my first 10days of provera on oct. 4 and I still havent had a period yet. I know sometimes it can take up to 14 days after but Im well over my 14 days. So my question is why havent I had a period yet? And could it be that the shot is still in my system or is the provera meant to over-power it? Please Help?!
Avatar n tn I gave birth six months ago and had just started Depo Provera. I started bleeding for 5 months stopped for three days started again for one week stopped again for three days and well started again and never ended. Could this be from the shot or something else?
Avatar n tn Do you mean depo provera? Assuming that is what you mean it is going to stop you from conceiving as it is birth control. It is 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. You need to tell your doctor that you are TTC so that she can try and help you in some other way than birth control.

Avatar m tn I just went to the GYN and got my annual pelvic exam and my first shot of depo and so far everything has been okay. However, once I didn't get my period I started to worry and I took a pregnancy test just in case and it did come out negative. But I'm still freaking out since I am only 18 and really do not want to be pregnant. So is it normal to be late for your period after getting the shot? or should I take another test? Thanks.
Avatar m tn Hi! I recently got the Depo Provera shot a couple weeks ago, and it is was within the 5-7 days before my period of which was supposed to be on the 23rd of last month.. And I still haven't gotten my period, I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative, I'm just really worried maybe the test was wrong, or is it normal to have a really late period after having your first shot?
983134 tn?1248702843 i have been ttc for 2 years after being on depo for 2 and a half years and i blame depo 100%, i had irregular periods for months after coming off of it, pains etc. It is only now i'm getting a normal 28-32day cycle, this also causes bone damage the longer the use of depo the more prolonged the problems a lot of woman may agree with me on this one.

Avatar f tn I got the depo shot on November 15th of 2014... And my doctor said that it only lasts for three motnhs, and I think I might be pregnant... I started spotting about three weeks ago and it lasted for two weeks. (I stopped spotting a week ago) but when the spotting stopped I started getting food cravings, and my boobs have been hurting. I also feel bloated.
Avatar n tn No matter how long you are on it, it can take 12-18 months to fully get depo provera out of your system. I had a hard time after depo, my body started going through withdrawls of the drug and I had a cyst on my ovary from depo which was causing me not to ovulate.

Avatar f tn Hi I'm 17 and I was wondering if its normal to be back on your regular periods and not be able conceive for a while, how long will it possibly take to conceive after my periods come back ?
Avatar n tn I didnt do anything special to bring it on. Unfortunately I just waited and waited until it came. Good luck to you and baby dust!

273379 tn?1213044686 What i would like to know is, is there a possibility i could be pregnant, how long does depo take to wear off and how long do these symptoms last after coming off depo and lastly i have been taking fertiliad is this any good and if not what can i do to speed up my chances of conceiving. Thanks for any help given!!
505857 tn?1329685117 I was on depo for 3 yrs, and luckily got AF the first month off depo. Personally, I believe if you are having regular periods, you need to buy some ovulation predictor tests, and see if your even ovulating. They're pretty expensive but you get alot of them, just test each day....etc. what the directions say on the box. That way you'll know if it's because your not ovulating... or whatnot.
Avatar n tn I went through two rounds of Depo. One in Feb of 2007 and the one after that. I got a period in May of this year. I stopped until about September and I am slowly getting back to being regular. I am not quite there yet. It does take a while for some women and others back right back. If you would like to start a cycle, consider asking your doctor about another method of birth control that regulates your cylce (i.e. the pill or nuva ring).
Avatar f tn Depo is very very affective, but if u do want to get preg then u should get off depo cause it messes u up. I was on depo for a year and a couple of months and I didn't get my period at all and now I. Off depo ad still haven't gotten my period. Me and my boy friend are TTC but I don't think I can cause I haven't had a period.
Avatar f tn im 17 and i got on the depo shot in october of 2011 and i just got my 3rd shot today, i got the shot in my left arm and the nurse out the cotton ball and tape over it then a few hours later i took the cotton ball and tape off my arm and the cotton ball was very wet. could my depo have came out of my arm? or could it be from the rubbing alcohol she rubbed my arm with before she did the shot? im freaking out.
Avatar n tn I have been on Depo Provera for 13 years. I have not had a period in probably 10 years or longer. I got the flu and started taking flu medicine and two days later all of the sudden - a period. I am freaking out. What would cause a sudden period after such a long absence? I want it to go away NOW. Did the flu medicine kill my depo shot?
Avatar n tn I have been on the depo provera for 2 and a half years now, I have a period every 3 month 10-14 days before im due my depo. I havnt had a period this time and i am due to get it in 2 days. Could i be pregnant?
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
