Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera generic name


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 Does anyone know if the take the genric brand of Depo or the name brand Depo shot? I have been on both. The first time for 3 years (the name brand medication) and when I got off, had my period the very next month and I lost every pound that I had gained. Only side effect was weight gain which I didn't mind. However, I had no problems for the 3 years I was on it. Actually got pregnant 3 months later.
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!
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...
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 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.
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 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.

Avatar f tn i gained weight, i was irritable all the time, depressed, and just wanted to eat and eat! i prefer Yaz over anything else. but i may start the depo-provera shot birth control. it's something i'm looking into.
Avatar n tn regardless if you are not ready to have children either double up, triple up, or stop having sex. another point is that generic drugs do not act differently than brand name drugs. the only difference is an added molecule to the drug that your body can determine the difference between. The ineffective molecule will be ejected as waste and the effective molecule will be used as a birth control.
Avatar n tn Massive doses of birth control pills (which we don't want, because of all the side effects), or to take Provera, which is a hormone. We chose the Provera. Last night I took the last pill... I was told to take it for 5 days and then I should start my period again. She said if this period lasts longer than 2 weeks to come back. I haven't started up again yet, but it hasn't even been 24 hours since my last dose. So hopefully this turns out well.
1160836 tn?1332333769 I don't have PCOS just simply haven't ovulated in 4 months. Last regular AF was November 09. All my other's have been Provera induced. Did clomid 50 mg last cycle and still didn't ovulate. This next cycle doing provera agian and clomid 100 mg. Hopefully I ovulated. Have my fingers crossed. SBD!
Avatar n tn I am on the Depo-Provera shot for birth control and read that Depo-Ralovera (a very similar shot) can cause greasy hair. ( I wonder if I could have received the wrong shot when I was in about 2 weeks ago, the names are so similar. At first I thought I didn't rinse the shampoo or conditioner out of my hair well enough.
363243 tn?1331037450 One day I started doing more research on the net and found out about a medecine that block the men hormones called ALDACTONE generic SPIRONLACTONE and read about it and wanted to try it and this is what saved me and made me feel like the way I felt once before... Now I took the generic before and also took the brand name . In my opinion the brand might cost a little bit more but it is the best because all of that breast tenderness the side effect are minimal compare to the generic.
Avatar n tn This compares with 10 for the normal IUCD, 20 for the Pill and 10-15 for the injection (Depo Provera). This is comparable to the effectiveness of sterilisation. Mirena acts as a contraceptive in two ways: it makes the mucus at the neck of the womb (the cervix) much thicker, preventing sperm from getting through and it also makes the lining of the womb extremely thin, stopping implantation. In some women it prevents egg release (ovulation). A.
Avatar f tn I've switched to the pill now but just started but after I had my son i wanted to try Depo-provera I got the shot until my son was six months old and I think it may have had something to do with my mood I started feeling really sad all the time and started getting chest pains and bad headaches I went to the er twice with chest pains and they did a ct scan and ekg and said everything was fine both times and they did a scan on my head to check for tumors and they said everything was fine with that
Avatar n tn I was on it for 3 years and stopped a month ago due to experiencing other side effects (dry-eye, red spots on legs, etc). I was on generic Loestrin, microgestin Fe. I read the packet of possible side effects and it does say "scalp hair loss" so it confuses me that some doctors are saying hair loss and the pill are not related. Since stopping, my hair is falling out at a more rapid pace and I hope that it stops soon as I have thin, fine hair already and can't spare to lose anymore.
Avatar n tn With my first son it did take me almost 5 years to get pregnant with him because of the DEPO I was on but I never did have issues with non regular periods.May 19, June 26, July 27th and none in August and we will see what this month brings. . . ANY SUGGESTIONS? ? ?
Avatar n tn I too noticed this sticky crown issue about a week ago. I am 26 and do not have any more stress in my life than usual. I am on the Depo-Provera shot for birth control and read that Depo-Ralovera (a very similar shot) can cause greasy hair. ( I wonder if I could have received the wrong shot when I was in about 2 weeks ago, the names are so similar.
298579 tn?1192250448 The only thing I have seen that helps the pain is an herbal wrap that you heat up(you can get them @ walmart), and I lay that on my stomach. I have been on the depo shot for four years, I have asked if this is a contributing factor and have been told no. I have no kids. I hope someone comes up with an explanation, because I am too young to be giving up on my sex life!
Avatar n tn I too have had this problem for about the last year. I first noticed it after I switched from the shot (depo provera sp?), to Yaz. During that time also I was on antibiotics for strep throat and did developed a yeast infection. I was certain that it was because of Yaz. I went to the doctor and she didn't believe me and wouldn't switch me to another pill. I did see someone else and now I am on ortho tri-cylin. They seem to not be as bad but still occur 2-3 times per month.
Avatar n tn dose anyone no any thing about Depo-Provera aka the shot and what some woman can get with periods and if a dark brown with a little hint of orange dicharge is normal?
Avatar n tn I conceived my first baby while taking the generic form of the birth control pill Ortho Tricycline. Abbi was born in August 2005. The pregnancy was perfect. Labor and delivery went smoothly. The only problem was that Abbi came 3 weeks early (still considered full-term but she had premature lungs) and had to stay in NICU for 8 days before we were allowed to bring her home. Today she is a happy, healthy 2 1/2 year old who would love a sibling.

Avatar n tn I have been feeling bloated for weeks as well, and also having all of the nausea and every other symptom you can name. I am just wondering how long it's gonna take for these hormones to start showing up in my urine and blood. I know some ladies say that it took them to about their 4th month before they got a positive result. My period is now 4 weeks late and it's been 8 weeks since my last period, so I know something should have been showing up by now, right?
