Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera how long does it take to work


Avatar n tn Depo is suppose to take a while to come out of your system well it doesn't always take that long. They can never really explain it to you. Everyone is differnt but if there was every a law suit against depo I would sign on the dotted line in a heartbeat. I also have a friend who had way more complications then me on depo so really look into really, really well. Good luck choosing the correct contiseptive for you.
Avatar n tn In July I had the same bleeding but the spotting didn't last as long and would only happen after intercourse. I am not going to take the shot and I was wondering how long would it for me to be able to concieve after only one shot. It is only the second day after my scheduled shot but it seems like by body is starting to feel funny. I don't know if my mind is playing tricks on me or am I really feeling an early early sign of pregnancy!! Any suggestions???
Avatar f tn This too has consumed my life, and I see no end to it all since it took so long to diagnose but the damage was done to my bladder, ureters and bowels. So I am always in pain with those areas. It ***** not going to lie but I was glad I researched and found the best surgeon for my first surgery as I have read and met women with horror stories of having 24+ surgeries because of the lack of skill of surgeons. Its a nightmare and the awareness has to be out there in order for things to change.
Avatar n tn How was depo provera for you?
Avatar n tn ) BUT, it has vastly altered many aspects of my health and if you were a friend or relative, I would STRONGLY suggest that you NOT take the chance that it does to you what it has done to me and to so many other women, many of whom have experienced side effects after the very first shot.
Avatar n tn I am in a group where all the women are trying to conceive after the depo provera. Many have been trying to conceive for years, and no luck. And it seems like those who do conceive have miscarriages soon after. Its like 80% of the women who get pg have a miscarriage. Is this linked to the depo? Age? Im 22 and am trying to conceive #2. (my son is 6 now) I am so scared that it might happen to me.
Avatar n tn hi, I have just started provera to induce my period.
Avatar n tn ) but it doesnt take long ... just a while for it to get back to normal .
Avatar f tn For us it took provera, clomid, misscarriage, hsg test, vitamins, and then TONS of prayer for it to work for us. Seriously, you don't know how many people prayed for this! Hope it works out for you hun! Keep trying and start looking upwards for answers.
432411 tn?1206475709 Depo is a hormone shot for BC. The hormone injected (progesterone) causes the body to stop producing as when you're pregnant. So naturally there is some weight gain and roundness of the stomach that occurs. The body is being told it's pregnant so it tends to do what it needs to provide for the baby that does not exist. As for hypothyroidism I found out 6yrs ago by my doctor who noticed swelling around my throat sent me to do an ultrasound which showed an problem.
Avatar f tn this is my 1 time getting depo and my period has ben on for all most a 10 days...i have look up how long it pose to be on but no help...also i got my shot when i was on my period dose that have any thing to do with it....
Avatar f tn While the depo may not be a direct cause, it could have some bearing on it. You need to ask your doctor for some simple blood work to test thyroid function. The tests you need are Free T4, Free T3 and TSH. Don't just settle for the TSH that most doctors want to order and be done with it. TSH is a pituitary hormone and does not provide the full picture. FT3 and FT4 are actual thyroid hormones, so they will tell you what the thyroid is actually producing.
Avatar n tn It's brownish/red and a pretty decent flow. We'll see how long it lasts. If it seems to be a problem I'll comment again, otherwise it usually just lasts about 3-5 days. Overall, I have yet to want to go off the shot and I'm pretty happy with it.
Avatar n tn My doctor recomended the Pill first but after not being able to remember to take it due to my active schedule he told me about Depo Provera. I started it and immediately loved it because i had no period at all after 3 months. Very rarely over the last 7 years i would spot but never enough to do anything about it and just figured it due to stress. It high school i was very active, track, basketball, volleyball anything.
Avatar f tn After stoppage of Depo-Provera one can become pregnant as soon as three to four months after the last shot. It varies women to women. It may take some women up to a year or two to conceive once they stop using Depovera.It does not depend on how long you have been using Depovera.If you do not get your periods according to the stipulated time it will be best to consult a gynecologist. Do keep us posted. Take care and regards!
Avatar n tn Usually doctors want to make sure you aren't pregnant before taking it as it has been associated with birth defects, but on the other hand, I've read that the used to prescribe PRovera to women a long time ago to try to reduce chances of miscarriage, but later found out it wasn't nec. good for pregnancy afterall. IF you are charting, YOu won't really be able to tell if you're pregnant now unless you take a pg. test.
1636472 tn?1439186588 We need to keep in mind that this is our first round and it may take a bit for our bodies to get use to the hormone. At least we now have help. I believe that we should keep the internet searching to a minimum and keep connected with people like ourselves through this site for support and to hear others personal experiences. I hope that I have somewhat helped you with my long long response lol. It all comes from my heart. Because my heart goes out to everyone trying to conceive.
Avatar n tn My gyno put me on provera last week to induce my peroid, as my last period was dec 23rd. Prior to that i skipped the month prior. I would like to know about how long after the last provera pill should i expect to get my period. Also how long should i wait if i don't get my period?
215385 tn?1201806501 do you know how long it will take to get my period back after one injection
Avatar f tn I also asked him again about the gas and bloating. He confirmed that it does take 3 months for it to go away. He also said that the pain we feel when we press around the incision site will stay there until it completely heals. I am glad to hear you are feeling better. Please keep me informed on your healing progress.
Avatar f tn As I read various forums it doesn’t seem like I am alone – any input on how to loose this weight and how long it might take? I have still not had my period and realize that it might take 6-12 months for my cycle to regulate. I have read some information about using the birth control bill to regulate your cycle – anyone tried this? I would greatly appreciate any help, ideas, input!
162948 tn?1205256292 I know your period is the lining in your uterus which the mirena keeps it thin so obviously keeps mine to nothing since i dont bleed. I am really concerned now as to how long it is going to take me to concieve. I had a friend who got hers pulled out and got pregnant the next day. Now I really wonder when I should get it taken out. Now or when hes here so we can have sex right away.
Avatar n tn i was shocked but he gave me progesterone to take to make sure i had only 1 AF per worked. he also told me the depo can take up to 18 mos to leave my body and this is what caused this prob. i reseached the effects woman have experienced on depo. the issues other than fertility were experienced by many woman ....some even after only one shot. the longer you are on it the stronger the effects get over time. i was put on clomid to jump start my helped.
Avatar f tn Is it possible that the depo shot is causing me not to get pregnant? How long does it actualy take to work out of your system? I've only used it once. Also since after yasmin birth control pill I have had very light periods which only last for 2 or 3 days is that normal?
1636472 tn?1439186588 No AF!!! How long does it take once you get your IUI done for you to know if you are prego? I know someone who just had IVF done on April 6th and was told she can test on the 19th. So that is 13 days. It takes time to implant, correct? So if you haven't started yet, then hopefully you are prego!! Please do keep us all posted on here, I am anxious to hear what happens!! I really appreciate the support and luck you are sending my way! Thank you again! You are in my thoughts and prayers!
Avatar n tn hi ive been bleeding for 3 months of being on depo, im never going to take it again. i want to get pregnant what does clomid do, does it reverse the depo? sorry my doctor wont answer anything he wants to put me on birth control after i said i wanted a baby..
Avatar n tn Amber hello! wow so 7-8 years later here in 2015 i am curious about your post!! :") back ground story on myself, i am currently ttc, trying to get my periods back on track really....after getting off of BC last year. i was put on Provera for the 2nd time now to help induce a period...first time around i had no complications at all! came 5 days post provera, and all was good! :") this time around again 10 pills for 10 days, all is well....i am on day 4 post pill...
315867 tn?1193593448 actually, i just realized by typing this that i was on the pill and patch when i was a teenager due to very long periods. maybe that has something to do with it? i will research that, but does any1 know?
Avatar n tn also the reason i got off is b/c my obgyn told me (only after i asked if it was true b/c a friend had told me this and it happened to her) if you take depo for a long time it has made some women become sterile and not be able to have kids and then usualluy it takes a long to conceive after you get off. sometimes it takes a year or so.
