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 f tn 2011 and now it is March 2012 and I have gained 15 pounds and I have constant bloating and uncomfortableness in my stomach. This is every day and has affected my life to the point where I am extremely depressed about it. I have had so many tests done and have even visited a gastroenterologist about my stomach weight gain to rule anything out. Well I am positive now that it is due to Depo. In January I started the Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 and was religious about it.
Avatar n tn "and it felt very painful; I could feel something sort of fall out of my vagina, or discharge. To my shock and amazement, I found what appeared to be a peice of flesh in my underpants" i just started depo and this happend to me too. it was pink and redish. i know it was not blood. it was fleshy. dose anyone know what it could be. i am afraid.
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 n tn I was one it for almost 2 years and loved it and then all of the horrible side effects started... and when I say horrible, imagine the most extreme moodiness you've ever witnessed and then multiple it by 100... pain, trips to the ER to make it bearable... vaginal dryness so bad that my skin split open every time I peed... I mean, it was really awful. Like I said, it was great for 2 years, and then one morning I woke up and kablam!
Avatar f tn I stopped the subq and now on regular depo.... it’s horrifying and last year I couldn’t find anything about this side effect- all of the sudden they have it included!!! Did you find any lawsuits regarding this issue?!! If you need another person for a witness, please contact me!!
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 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.
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 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.
Avatar f tn My question is why is my bleeding not stopping completely on provera although its been 2 weeks i started taking them and the bleeding is moderate during the dayt and light during the night, I am soaking 2 to 3 pads per day .. 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 f tn I am using a Vaseline brand Intense Moisture product and it helps a little but not much. My skin flakes and it's not getting better. The skin around my hairline is dry but almost greasy at the same time when I look in a mirror. There are flakes actually in my hair. I find this really embarrassing and I do not know what to do. I would appreciate any help that you could give me.
Avatar n tn bled everyday constantly, not a day missed until about 2 weeks ago and now it's starting again. I also had clear skin until I started depo and now have bad cystic acne. I also weighed 125-130lbs before I started. I excercise and don't eat much and I have gained an uncontrollable amount of weight. atleast 20-25 pounds. it's so disgusting and I feel so embarrassed. mood swings, cramps, bleeding, headaches, weight gain, bad acne. I would never recommend depo to anyone! ever!
Avatar f tn For the first five years I tried several birth control brands and strengths which did nothing almost. I went on the Depo at age 14 and was not given the injection on the proper stage of my ovulation cycle. I bled for at least six months straight from heavy to medium with very few light days. I was a complete nuclear time bomb emotioally.
Avatar n tn i had the depo provera on december and is due april and i waited the right time to have unprotected sex and to let my boyfriend ejaculate in me for the first time and i was so panicy thinking i was pregnant i didnt get any signs i took a test and was negative and again my boyfriend ejaculated in me now i starting to get brown rims arounf my nipples thats it and its only been around 12 hours since we had unprotected sex could i be pregnant if imon Depo Provera ???
Avatar n tn Well, my problem isn't technically acne, it's just whiteheads and pustules. And my skin isn't oily at all, and I don't use any kind of body lotion or anything to make it so. It's constantly moist-ish and dark underneath the breast, as I said, but that's not oil-moist, that's sweat-moist from never getting any air. The water around here is pretty drying on skin, with all the chemical junk they've got in it for purifying, and I prefer it that way, precisely so as to avoid having greasy skin.
Avatar n tn if you r truely scared u might be pg on depo, see your dr immediately if you want to keep this might have to take provera to reverse it and not m/c. depo is extremely dangerous to a growing baby......i know, i have lived it. good luck and you r in my thoughts....
Avatar n tn The next day my gynocologist called and said that he and the other doctor decided not to do the surgery and try the medications first, so now I am taking Lyrica and Celebrex. Just wondering if anyone knew anything about sports hernias, and how these medications would help if I had one.
1432700 tn?1283377350 my first baby I missed a BC pill and ended up pregnant, I deliviered 12 weeks early, but it was because i had a previously unknow septum (wall of skin) in my uterus and that is what caused the premature birth, my 2nd child i was not trying, but not avoiding pregnacy it took several months, but i ended up pregnant again without medication.
Avatar f tn At first it just seemed like they were turning whitish, then they began to itch and the skin became very frail but thicker. I was on Depo Provera at the time and I have to believe that's what caused it. Took 3 years to get back to normal.
497047 tn?1210002233 52 in a couple of months and since I am having symptoms...fatigue, slight weight gain, loss of appetite, dry skin and hair, pins and needles in hands and feet, hoarse voice, mild depression...he just started me on synthroid. Then I read that Lithium can affect your thyroid. I dug around and found a bunch of old labs from those years that I saw the psychiatrist (I no longer do). I wanted to post some of these test results and see if anyone had any feedback.
Avatar n tn Here lately though I've bled after sex. I had a son about ten months ago and had 6 our of 7 layers of skin rip and I am now on the birth control Depo Provera. Could either of these have anything to do with why I'm bleeding?
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.
Avatar n tn Yes i do have those little side effects with it like, headaches and some nausea and nervousness. But my PMS is extremly under control now and my skin has cleared up tremendously. I went from a pill similar to Ortho Tricyclin (high hormone) to Yaz which is a lesser hormone and it's done wonderful things for me. The Ortho Tricyclin on put me through major mood swings and i couldn't kick the last few pounds after having my daughter and my skin was horrible.
Avatar f tn Along with the burning is a swollen vagina, extreme burning with urination and it looks like the skin around my vaginal opening is white, like the skin has been singed. And after it heals everything is very itchy for days. have no problems if my boyfriend pulls out. We don't use condoms Bc I'm on depro provera (birth control shot) we don't have any stds. (We've been tested). My dr says i just need not lubrication but we've tried that and it still happens.
