depo-provera

Avatar f tn I've just turned 18 and I've been using the depo shot for at least 7 months because the pill was making me sick.When I asked my Nurse about depo she just told me about the positives which left me very much in the dark about this contraception.Since starting my shots I have gained 14LBS in just SEVEN months!!I have gone back to the nurse since and explained that my diet and exercise hasn't changed but I'm gaining weight,she wasn't exactly sympathic and insisted I eat less!
Avatar n tn I have been on the Depo-provera for 10 years. I'm 27 now and have been married for 2 years. My next one is due on the 14th Feb 2012 the only time i have bleed was when I had cell's removed after another bad 'smear' test. I really want a baby my husband has 5 kids but we dont see them much (not out of choice!) Iam really scared now that I'm not going to be able to have a baby and wont beable to be the wife I want to be....
Avatar n tn If you took it and had a period then you were not pregnant and if you took it and didnt have a period then you were pregnant. Provera or the generic that you are talking of is pretty much progesterone and it will help your uterus. Dont worry it wont harm a pregnancy. Best of luck!
Avatar n tn Depo-Provera is a long acting form of medroxyprogesterone, which IS the generic name for Provera. So taking Provera won't reverse Depo-Provera.
Avatar f tn hi i have been off depo provera for quite some time and am considering using clomid. I have looked at different types and am a bit confused as to what is the difference between clomiphene citrate (brand) and clomid(generic)/ ovinum. The price for 30 50mg clomiphene citrate tablets is £151 but for the generic version for 30 50mg tablets its only £60. Does one work better than the other? please help am really desperate now!
194374 tn?1214480294 It is also known as provera or the DEPO SHOT for Birth control. Here's what I found from different sites. http://www.health-science.com/provera.html http://www.virtualcancercentre.com/drugs.asp?drugid=2182&type= http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic/medrox_ad.htm http://www.medicinenet.com/medroxyprogesterone/article.htm I wouldn't take it and I'd get a new doctor or a 2nd opinion atleast.
305180 tn?1279720347 Most types of hormonal contraception are immediately reversible including the pill, IUD, and Implanon. This is not necessarily true of Depo Provera. Depo Provera in some women may result in a delayed return of menstruation, but usually not greater than one year. Best regards, Dr.
Avatar f tn I have migraines so this worked for me. No breakthough bleeding or anything. But, I goofed and had depo-provera shot after my ds was born and screwed things up royally. Good luck to you and hope you have as good results as I did. Oh...I went off of the pill to get pregnant. It only took me one month to conceive!
Avatar n tn The mini-pill is progesterone based like depo-provera. In fact it is the same thing, only in a daily pill form instead of the longer acting shot.
136956 tn?1425609872 Half the time I had break through bleeding and the other times I turned into a complete b**ch!! I also tried the Depo Provera which is supposed to stop your periods - Yeah I bled for 9 months STRAIGHT until the stupid GYN finally took me off of it. Nothing helped with the pain and growing of endo, so I just went off of them... I felt so much better after that (and saved some $ too!). I never went on the lupron even though they highly suggested it...
Avatar n tn I have been on depo-provera for 2 years for treatment of stage 4 endometriosis with secondary cpp and ibs. I recently visited my first endometriosis specialist in Vancouver. She told me to talk to my doctor about changing my birth control as i was taking 150mg every 2 months. the risks of bone loss are very high. she also suggested a birth control low in estrogen. a week after my visit with her i made an appt to see my gp.
Avatar m tn let me give a litte backround..had ds in may 2010..at 3 months pp i got the depo..tried it once and decided not to get it again..that messed up my cycles..in august i got the shot and was supposed to get it in nov. i got period in december..i was going on a 3 wk period..so i made an appt at my drs..they gave me provera to regulate my periods..bad decision...it made it worse..i'd get a heavy period every other week...i thought maybe thats normal...idk..
Avatar f tn He immediately put me on Depo Provera and I remained on that for close to a year then I switched over to a seasonal birth control. I got my period once every 3 months. Recently, with in the last 3-4 months, I opted to go off of birth control and hopefully manage my symptoms with Naproxen. I get relatively bad cramps and lower back pain around my period and I have had some occurrences of pain during intercourse if I am close to my period.
1611503 tn?1325485790 That's the generic for Provera. What it does is induces a period in a woman who is anovulatory and not getting her period, which you already know. I was on this medicine for a few months to help try to get my cycle restarted correctly. It didn't help me. All it did was induce my period and then I would go another month an a half without ovulating before I'd call for a refill. Some women it does help to restart their bodies into ovulating, but it's not reliable.
192918 tn?1199454779 depo-provera, the mini-opill (which is basically justa daily dose of the medication in depo) and the extremely low dose of hormones in the Mirena IUD. I would double check with another doc and/or pharmacist before taking.
Avatar n tn I was on the shot( Depo-provera) for about 5 years. I never had any vag smell, unless I had a bacterial infection which was once. The shot was great for me. No period, No side effects. I had to stop because after long term use I have severe bone density loss. I'm only 28. Estrogen builds bone density. There is no estrogen in the shot. So my Dr. Put me on yasmin 24 hrs.
Avatar n tn There is also the Patch, Nuva-ring, Spermicides, female condoms, diaphragm, sponge, cervical cap, IUD's, and Depo-Provera (which I do not suggest to take...if you are moody now then it will be worst with Depo). Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn I am a 19 year old african american female. In October 2007 I got the depo vera shot, I only got the shot 2 times, which means I was on the medication for a total of 6 months. So my last shot was in January of 2008. I decided that I didn’t want that form of birth control anymore, and I didn’t get my period until November of 2008. I then bleed for 27 days! The doctor put me on Provera and then everything seemed to be normal.
247052 tn?1260953658 version of it, Ortho Evra, Lo-Estrin, Lo-Estrin 24-FE and from July to October of this year, Depo Provera. I have also had the HPV vaccine completed by the time I was 21. Between July and October, I had inexplicable intense cramping in my right ovary and lots of pain during sex with my boyfriend (of 7 years). So, I attributed this to side effects of "the shot". Since October, I have not been on any form of birth control medication whatsoever.
Avatar f tn Don't give up, there is probably a pill out there that can make your periods more manageable. Have you tried Depo Provera, or Loestrin? Something that would at least reduce the frequency & heaviness? That might be better than having bleeding every day. Good luck, sorry, but you probably need a doc's advice on this one.
Avatar n tn i have noticed this problem for at least a couple of years and initially my doctor thought it was because i was in depo provera and had abnormal bleeding all the time. i have been on the pill for over 7 months and my periods are back to normal except after this occurrence following orgasm. in april i had an abnormal pap smear that indicated i had HGSIL (high-grade intraepithelial lesions) of the cervix.
Avatar f tn I have been on birth control (mostly the pill, though have also tried depo provera, and the patch..neither of which were for me) since I started my period at the age of 12. The doctor put me right onto birth control due to the uncontrollable cramping, vomiting, migranes, and other symptoms that came along with my monthly cycle. Even after years of taking the pill, the pain was still hardly bareable and I missed an average of 3 days/month from school between grades 7 and 12.
Avatar n tn My last pregnancy test was negative. I was on Depo Provera and birth control pills for several years. I have no children and that was my only pregnancy ever. At this point I really feel I will be infertile forever. When I read the posts on here it seems like everybody who miscarried in March or April is either pregnant or at least has normal periods. And it also seems my situation is so unusual nobody has any suggestions.
Avatar n tn I`ve tried Ortho tri-cyclen and it ran my blood pressure up. I also tried Depo provera shot, and it made me feel crazy! I was just wondering if anyone else on here has taken Ortho Micronor, and if so, did you have any side effects? Did you like it? Thanks......
Avatar n tn Hi First, here is info on Depo: What "The Shot" Is and How It Works Depo-Provera is the brand name of a prescription method of reversible birth control. It is a hormone like progesterone, one of the hormones that regulates the menstrual cycle. It is called depot- medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA). A shot of DMPA in the buttock or arm can prevent pregnancy for 12 weeks.

199284 tn?1200688850 These last pounds are very hard to get rid of and I get frustrated at times. Did you see live4fitness' comment on depo-provera? These pills have helped her lose weight. I have been looking for some birth control pills that could also help me if not lose at least maintain my weight. I do not wish to get pregnant and I don't want to gain weight.
Avatar f tn Take a stool softener like colace. have you ever had hemorrhoids before? You can also buy tucks pads ( generic is fine ) and use them as a compress in the anal area. Hold them in between your butt cheeks and practice your duck walk to hold them in place for 20 minutes several times a day. these will help with swelling, pain and itching no matter what the cause of your bleeding.
Avatar f tn After the DNC was performed he put me on an oral contraceptive and told me that my periods should be regulated. They weren't - continuous bleeding. He then put me on the Depo-provera shot which made my period subside completely. Sooo, six months ago I told him I would like to try the pill again as the shot had made me gain some weight and I don't think it is natural to NEVER have a period. So, I have had no issues until this point with the pill.
