Depo provera grace period

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera grace period


Avatar f tn He told me that he was going to try the Depo Provera shot, because that would be a more effective pain reducer and would help the endo from not coming back. I took the shot in the middle of December 2013, and started bleeding the beginning of January. I was not due to take the next shot until March, but I was still bleeding in February consistently. I called the doctor again and said that I was still bleeding, and they told me that I could either come and take the 2nd shot early or wait it out.
Avatar m tn I just recieved my first Depo Provera shot in dec 07, i did have my period january and feburary. I am 5 days late this month . I took a pregnancy test yesterday it came up negative. Is it possible i could still be pregnant? My Husband and i are not trying to concieve so i dont know what to think im still trying to enjoy my lil one!!!
Avatar f tn im 15 years old (16 in the end of august) and have used various forms of contraception including the depo-provera injection, the implant and the pill from the age of around 13... i had my implant removed about a year ago and had the depo-provera injection for about 9/10 months and has my last one in the 2nd week of august. i started the pill and have been on it since that time but stopped taking it on the 21st of december and since then had a weeks period.
Avatar n tn I have been late before, but only by 3 or 4 days. My last period was feb 7, and so far no period. I am having symptoms, but have had two negative tests. I don't know what to do. My husband had a vasectomy in september. Neeles to say he is worried I am pregnant. I don't have insurance, so it's hard to just go to the doctor. Have either one of you had a positive pregnancy test yet?
Avatar n tn I started dating and having sex with my boyfriend seven months ago. After a few months into our relationship, we had me go on Depo-Provera for birth control and stopped using condoms. I realize now that wasn't the smartest idea since I just took his word that he didn't have any STD's. However, I have been 100% faithful to him and I feel pretty confident that he hasn't slept with anyone else since meeting me.
Avatar n tn i was religiously taking depo consistantly within my grace period of 7 days of last injection every 12 wks but never used my grace after 3 days. It took 3 years to become pregnant after depo! Im not pregnant with the man who I loved so much and feared to death of. Im thankful. I dont think hes happy that I moved on ...though.. thanks for sharing your comments...
Avatar n tn I have also heard of poeple not getting a positive blood test until 3 months pg...But I start Provera tomorrow to jump start my period since I am 2 weeks late then CD5-9 I will take my Clomid and we will go from there...well keep me posted and I will do the same for you!! Be Blesed!!
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor today who told me to take provera 10 mg. and that will stop the period or at least make it lighter, depends on the flow. But my question is when do I take it. I'm going on vacation next weekend and I don't know should I take it now and the periods stop or take it next week b/c the periods start back. Anyone know ?
1160836 tn?1332333769 I've always been instructed to take my Clomid CD 3-7 to help induce ovulation. I have heard taking Clomid CD 5-9 is to help with the egg quality. I would call your doctor's office to see if it would be beneficial taking it on CD 3-7. The CB monitor shouldn't be too affected by the Clomid. It might get a little fussy the first Clomid cycles because levels are different from what it is used to seeing with your cycles.
Avatar n tn well i just started like last month in july or maybe the ending of june my period was june21-26 but i havent had a period for july so i dont know whats goiog on its now aug6-2007 i dont know what to expect be4 gertiol my cycle was regular but now its really about to be 2months lates
280700 tn?1210287416 I also took clomid 50mg last month and never ovulated, so the cycle was a bust and the doctor prescribed Provera again casue it could be some time before i get my period. He upped my dosage to 100mg and i'm on day 3 today of clomind. I'm basically taking clomid cd 2-6 as the specialist wanted and then he will start monitoring me on CD 9. I'm also getting IUI done so hopefully tis would help but if I don't ovulate then this cycle would be a bust also. I'm crossing my fingers as well.
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.
162948 tn?1205256292 I got my IUD out on Aug 5th and am ttc. I have had lots of spotting and maybe a period but nothing regular. I called my doc and they said that it takes 3 months before the hormones are out of your system. The mirena website makes it sound as though you can get pregnant anytime after removal. Any advice/stories would be appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar n tn thinks either adenomyosis or endo, but she told me if yaz doesnt help the next step might be the depo provera shot I dont know much about it but that may be a possibility for you, or possibly even lupron depo she suggested, even though I think you get many side effects from it. It's like a fake menopause! Well good luck lemme know how things works out!
Avatar f tn I wonder if the absense of condom use could have given me time to develop an allergy? I went to a gynocologist in a 3 week period and he told me there was nothing wrong with me. I asked why I was still itchy even though the swelling had gone down and I didnt have a yeast infection, for THAT appointment. He prescribed me anti itch cream. I was soooo frustrated that id be passed off as just an itchy person. It's been off and on with the problem.
Avatar n tn C proceedure done Dec 2007 - now I regret it with every part of my being. The day I had the proceedure I had started my period. I have not had a period since. Twice now I've had a little pink on the toilet paper each month but that's it. I just want to break down when I think of what I have done to myself. I have one child and I know I want another one. I made a horrible decision based on painfull periods and desperation.
363243 tn?1331037450 I am a 25 year old African American female and I was diagnosed a year ago with PCOS, but i started having an irregular period when i was 20 and hair growth on my face when i was 21 and slim. My doctor wants me to take birth control and metformin. I feel like its too many pills, however i feel the same way everyone else feels about the hair growth. I feel really hesitant to take so much medicine, but i don't want to keep dealing with this excess hair on my chin and neck.
Avatar f tn test came back negative on my expected period date but positive 3 days later. We couldnt believe it. But i did have cramps very similar to the HSG (rather painful) of and on for 3 weeks. I thought my period was comming but never did :) Currently 12weeks pregnant.
Avatar n tn And now seeing that there are other women with the same concerns, I am seriously getting worried. I haven't had a period since before the ablation. I was thinking that if I went to the OB/GYN and told her my concerns, she'd think I was nuts. She's not like that, but I still worry about it. The other issue is that my husband has had a vasectomy. But he never went in for the post-tests. So he's never had confirmation that he's shooting blanks.
1294995 tn?1330666336 I'm 4 days past provera and nothing yet. I'm getting alittle worried because I've been on provera like 6 times and almost always like clock work I get it two days after stopping it. I'll wait until it's been 7 days past then I'll call my dr. Didn't realize I could wish so much for AF :-) Well I have enjoyed this day off. Back to work tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend :-) SSBD!!!!
Avatar n tn I gained quite a bit of weight during that time (I'm 5'9 and 235# and 63 years old) (I also have diabetes and HBP which is related to the weight gain) I recently weaned myself off Paxil over a 2 month period. My depression is somewhat re-appearing. Someone suggested St. John's Wort, but I have been reading that it interferes with the diabetes meds. My doctor suggested Topamax as a way to counteract depression AND to lose some weight, which is important for my overall health.
Avatar n tn So, doctors often don't have much information on this, or they have misinformation on it since Progesterone is often confused with the icky Progestins that are used in birth control pills and Provera and Prempro. And, many doctors think you don't need the hormone if you don't have a uterus.....EEEK!!!! We have receptors for this hormone in our brains, our lungs, etc. It helps alleviate foggy thinking, bone loss, soft tissue joint/muscle pains, etc.
Avatar n tn About 6 months ago I was at work and went to the bathroom and did my business when i wiped it hurt and burned so bad so I looked at the toilet paper and there was blood. I knew I wasn't on my period so I immediatly freaked and called my GP. I got an appointment the same day. He said it looked like some kindof skin fungus and gave me this cream:Clotrimazole and Betamethasone Dipropoinate Cream. This made it go away. I went on with my daily business and it came back even worse.
Avatar f tn Strangely enough, my period is now 2 weeks late, this is believed to be because of stress. And if I can ask, is working yourself up over minor stresses considered anxiety? Im sorry for everyone in here suffering this same pain and hope its not a lifelong thing, and thank you for the advice several of you gave. Leah, I am a left side sleeper too, and get cramps in my legs before I have to switch positions...the doc said this was muscle tension from the postion and compltely unrelated.
Avatar n tn The problem is sometimes those pregnancy symptoms are an awful lot like period symptoms (it's a bummer that nature works that way). But either way, I started having sore breasts and slight nausea within about a week or so after my IUI. The IUI worked and I did get pregnant... so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
1647691 tn?1363727302 He believes everything is ok but he just wants to be sure. So long story short, I will be starting BCP after my next period (which should be around August 13th). Then everything starts again. The only difference is if I do PGD, I will have my retrieval than they will examine the cells they extract while the embies will be frozen than a couple of weeks later I will have a FET. So we will see what happens. @Karol1968 - I am so so sorry. It broke my heart to read your post.
503727 tn?1210442710 However, I will tell you that you shouldn't continue to take xanax every day for a long period of time (more than a month) because it will become addicting and it is very hard to come off of it... so if I were you I would stop taking the xanax soon and only take it if you are having a panic attack. If you have any more questions or just need to talk please don't hesitate... I will always be here for advice or whatever... we all need all the help we can get!
