Depo provera cost

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera cost


Avatar n tn I've never taken Depo-Provera but I've heard alot about how it can 'mess up' your cycle. Every one reacts different to it. It can help you but also make your cycles worse. I'm sorry I can't help you much here. But overall, I don't like Depo because of all the things I've heard about it. I've heard more disadvantages then advantages to using it. If you continue to have these problems w/ it, then I suggest you change your contraceptive to something else.

Avatar n tn I was on Depo Provera for one year. I was put on the shot fro severe Ovarian Cysts. Instead of getting the shot every three months I had to get one every two months. Every doctor reassured me it was safe. I have now been off depo for one year and a half. My husband and I have tried every thing to get pregnant and I still can't. I started my periods as soon as I stopped taking Depo. All the doctors still assure me everything is okay. My gut feeling is telling me not to take that for an answer.
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.
Avatar n tn I had a previous post about wondering if I am pregnant or not, but I am also wondering if it is possible for me to get pregnant so soon. In May of 2004 I begin the Depo-Provera shot and then got my second shot in August, before my third shot in November I decided to switch to the pill due to some complications. So I have been on the pill since mid November of 2004. I know that Depo-Provera can stay in your system anywhere from 12 to 24 months. My husband and I have recently decided to TTC.
Avatar n tn I have been on depo for 11 years. I would be due for my next shot on 9/27 but my Doctor has advised that I stop having it. She has been treating me for migraines and depression with Imitrex (when needed) and a daily dosage of Prozac of 10mg. The Imitrex thankfully, works, and the migraines have also been lessened by the Prozac.
315867 tn?1193593448 Have faith. I was on depo for a year and got pregnant while I was still on it. Keep trying and good luck!
Avatar m tn In the spring of 2012 my wife started the birth control shot Depo Provera as a treatment for fibroid tumors. The side affects were terrible. She went from being someone with boundless energy to being tired all the time. She went from having a very healthy sex drive to having none at all. She gained about 75lbs, despite having and continuing abnormally healthy eating and exercise habits. Even her personality changed.
Avatar n tn But everyone is different and reacts differently to depo. Some people even get pregnant while on depo or once they stop it. Usually it stays in your system from 12-18 months. I stopped depo in Nov 04 and started BCP's to regualte my periods. Then in Aug 05 I stopped BCP's to TTC. Because the depo was still in my system and I just got of BCP's I didnt have a period without the help of provera until Dec 05. I now am almost 21 weeks pregnant.
Avatar n tn i have to go to the fertility clinic now to have some kind of a chance to have a child. it cost thousands of dollars to do this.
Avatar n tn )?) thanks a lot:) Dear Jennifer: Depo-Provera injections provided protection against pregnancy for 12 weeks. After 14 weeks, the drug has been cleared from the body to a level where contraception is no longer effective. It takes the average woman 5 months following the injection (2 months after the "missed injection") to establish a normal menstrual cycle.
Avatar n tn I have never aken the depo shot...but I would suggest going to see the Dr. ASAP, especially if you are know your body the best!!! maybe you just need a dose or two of provera to get your period started...your Dr. will tell you more about it...Let us know what you decide and what happens...
Avatar n tn I have had endo for over ten years now and after a few surgeries and depo provera i finally put my foot down along with my husband and said Enough is enough, i couldnt live like that any longer! so i started Lucrin in Jan and i've got my last injection in a few days time. I was terrified of going on it after reading side effects but...the hot flushes, night sweats, headaches and feeling pregnant lol are nothing compared to how much pain i was in before!
Avatar f tn They just looked at my incisions and prescribed my Depo-Provera. I told her about my continued, lasting pain with this past period as well as the continuing irregular BM/diarrhea. The doctor wasn't too interested in discussing those problems, just telling me about the Depo-Provera shot. I told her I wasn't sure about it and may wait a few cycles before taking it. Still haven't made up my mind.
Avatar f tn Ive been off of depo provera for a week now my nipples were sore before i got off i thought depo couldve caused it and i had unproted sex about 3-4 days ago and my nipples still hurt but my boobs feel heavy and look bigger and i feel bloated too could i be pregnant
Avatar n tn I am not sure about whether or not the cause of the miscarriages were due to the Depo-Provera but I did furthur research and wanted to share some info with those individuals that don't know. Depo-Provera is a synthetic hormone. I was very young when I took it and didn't get all of the details (ignorance). If I would have known that fact alone, I wouldn't have taken it. If you have a low Progestrone Level it will more than likely cause you to have a miscarriage. Now.....
Avatar f tn I think I'd have issues remembering the pill if I were to do that, so I've narrowed it down to between the Mirena IUD the Depo Provera shot. I have never had children and have a retroverted uterus which makes me concerned about the IUD, but I also am concerned that I can't get rid of any side effects of the shot for the months that I'm on it.
Avatar n tn It also weekend my bones. all that from getting the shot 1 time. I wouldn't recommend the depo provera shot.
902536 tn?1326917850 i strongly suggest you get off of depo-provera NOW!!! that contraceptive is poison to the system. i was on this bc for 2 and a half years, have been ttc for the past 19 months with no luck and blame depo entirely for this cause. When i was on depo i thought it was fantastic as i never had a period how wrong was i. I got bad cramps every month, depression, major mood swings, bloated and weight gain etc.
Avatar n tn I went to the gyno today and upon finding nothing through a pelvic exam he suggested Depo Provera, which I don't want to take, or laprascopy to look at and perhaps remove the ovary. I'm wondering what people think about having an ovary removed and if I should try natural progesterone for awhile first. My periods have always been, and are now, regular and normal. I have no syptoms beyond the excruciating pain for about 10 days per month.
4842016 tn?1372042667 The depo provera shot can be taken while breastfeeding and is needed every 3 months. If you get it within 6 weeks of delivery it can reduce your milk supply.
Avatar f tn So ever since I got put on birth control the Depo Provera shot I have been experiencing a whole lot of pain to where I can't even have intercourse. I went to my doctor she said I need to go through therapy because I tense my muscles up when I am having lower abdominal pains, I had the abdominal pains before I got on the shot but they were no where near as bad as they are now. right along with the burning and pain and the itchieness of my vagina. It is so painful.
Avatar n tn Alright, this is worrying me. Previously, I have received 3 injections of Depo Provera at the regular three month intervals, with my last injection being in the middle of June. I was due for my next injection in September, but my health insurance ran out, and my new coverage didn't kick in in time. After stopping the injections, I realized just how crappy they were making me feel, and opted not to get back on them. I haven not been on any other method of bc since then.
Avatar n tn There's no hormonal fluctuation, and never has been; it's consistent all the time. I'm on depo-provera now, but even before then it was the same. It doesn't seem to matter if I scrub myself raw, or go two weeks without bathing (I'm in the Houston area, and last fall after Ike, with no power or clean water, bathing was iffy. We've been through similar several times over the years). Diet makes no difference. Climate changes make no difference. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn My friend just went from the patch to the pill and her Dr said she had to use a back up method for 7 days. But according to they say you are protected immediately. "If a woman's previous method was injectable birth control, such as Depo Provera, she needs to begin using the COCs (estrogen and progestin combined oral contraceptive) or POPs (progestin-only pill) when the next shot is scheduled in order to be continually protected from pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Well you may need to be a bit flexible w/ the natural route. I loooooved being on Depo Provera shots. I was on it for a few years into my 30's. It was so easy- a quick shot every 3 months. It cost me $50 at Planned Parenthood. I had no side effects besides no period (which I loved). It is a very effective method of birth control. I liked the convenience of not having to take a pill everyday (they made me nauseaus anyway) and having to buy them each month.
Avatar f tn The Mirena IUD has hormones like the pill and some women stop having a period completely. Then, there's the Depo Provera shot. This one is one of the more controversial birth controls out there. You get a hormone shot, and a few months later, you get another one. Less to remember, but you have to make sure you get each shot on time.
435139 tn?1255463991 as it only lasts in your body 24 hours there is more of a chance of conceiving as it's out of your system quicker than depo-provera and the implant. If i'm honest and i knew how bad depo-provera was going to be i would never have taken it i still think to this day if i had not taken depo and been told the consequences i would have a child of my own at this moment. I wish you all the luck in whatever you chose but i would stick with the contraceptive pill!!!
