Avatar n tn i was on depo after the birth of my son 8 yrs ago. the side affects are evil...i call depo the death shot...thats how bad it is. it dried up my breast milk, made me sick, gain 70 lbs, lose my concentration, lose my sex drive, vaginal dryness, lost hair, made me so moody that they thought i had bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, and depression. NEVER TAKE THAT POISON AGAIN. it has been 18 mos since i have been off of it and i am still infertile from it.
Avatar f tn Finally have a serious look into your contraception method, as you may have not been made aware of the many possible dangers and side-effects. Your spotting is likely due to the Depo-Provera, which may also be contributing to headaches/migraines, nervousness and is not recommended for long-term use because of bone loss issues, which may be permanent, even after discontinuation of Depo-Provera.
Avatar m tn In fact, I tried to get a prescription for Depo Provera (used in chemical castrations outside of the US), but was to no avail. I've read a lot of conflicting opinions about things like Saw Palmetto, Licorice Root and Reishi Mushroom extract. Some say they have killed their libido, others say they were kicked into overdrive. I've taken significant amounts of Licorice and Chasteberry, but have not noticed any impact.
Avatar m tn But I will say that it is best not to make major decisions during a state of depression. The drug given to sexual offenders is called Depo-Provera. It is actually a birth-control drug that decreases the amount of testosterone in the body. Apparently the reduction in libido disappears when the drug is stopped, so you shouldn't have any permanent damage from it. You will have to speak with your doctor about the possibility of using this medication.
Avatar n tn Depo Provera or Androcur will take your drive away, but be careful, the effects of chemical castration can be bad, depression, mood swings, heat flashes, etc. Women can have low estrogen too and i find its a better solution to bring the low partner up than to shut the high partner down...
