Avatar n tn Depo can stay in your system for 12-18 months. I was on it for 5 1/2 years and had complications once I got off it. my body went through withdrawl of the drug so I was very sick for awhile and was still not getting my period, so my doctor did MRI's and catscans, and found I had a cyst on my ovary from the depo. She gave me provera (hormone pill) to jump start my period, it only came once, then she put me on birth control to regulate my cycle and get my periods back.
Avatar f tn I usually respond terribly to hormone treatments but I'm in such a terrible and desperate position right now that I just started taking the Depo provera shot. Last Tuesday to be exact. Still in excruciating pain and have searched the net high & low for days for the answer to this question. Has anyone here tried this treatment for endo pain and gotten relief? Was wondering how long it usually takes to start working for pain.
Avatar f tn I wonder what the difference between the two depo shots are and I wonder why my gyno recommended the other depo shot if the depo-subq provera 104 shot is specific for endo ?
Avatar n tn After having done the research, and seeing my neighbor's results, and finding that you can purchase HCg (the drug alone) for less than $ 2 5 0 in the US, and for less than $ 1 0 0 in Canada, and for about $ 2 5 in Mexico, I was ready to sign up. They wanted seven hundred dollars for the "program." WHAT? I told them I had my own bloodwork, exercised daily with my horse, and lived a primarily vegan lifestyle, they boasted a five hundred dollar "BASIC" program.
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar n tn I went to my OBGYN, who is a fabulous doctor and is widely known in Eastern Ontario (Canada). He diagnosed me with Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrom (PCOS). In a nutshell what is happening is I am not producing enough progesterone to "push the eggs out" Which in turn is forming little cysts around my eggs and since the eggs aren't being pushed out, I'm not ovulating. My doctor prescribed me 10 days of Novo-medrone (10mg) to induce a period. I took my last pill today.
1000392 tn?1294097512 Well it's very early... about 3am (in Canada).... still no sleep. I am at the point where I would give up chocolate for a year just to have a good night sleep. I used to be such a good sleeper back in the day. I'd go to bed at 10pm and be able to wake up at 10am and feel refreshed. Now, I can't fall asleep until 7-8am and sleep until 4-5pm. It has ruined my life. I've been crying myself to sleep for the past 3 weeks now. This idea of giving endo patients Depo Lupron is a mistake.
Avatar f tn I've never used the Depo, but grew up working in medical offices and know that many women prefer them. You seem to have had alot of problems with US birth control, but also that you've done some research. I have had to make several changes in regards to my birth control (usually pills) due to a medical condition that I have (PCOS). In my most resent research, I found that different pills have such different hormone levels and variations. I'm not sure if you've through of this, or tried it.
Avatar n tn I have to take Cody in for a needle and regretting it since He is so happy I hate to put him in a mood ,So I have been dancing around it. There was a new immunization come out in Canada for children and when he went in for his 6 months shot they were out So I have called once and they were too busy ..But i guess I have to get doing it! aahhhhhh...
Avatar n tn I'm nervous about this, and have been to many doctors appointments to figure out what this could be. I feel bad that other people have to pay for doctor visits as I am in Canada and all of my health care is free. I will keep anyone posted if I find anything out...but please, if you know what this could be let me know. This discussion is related to Passing (3x2 inch) sheets of tissue during menstration (NOT clots!!!)..
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 m tn I have recently been told that I have a 6cm growth on my ovary and a laparoscopy was suggested. I would prefer to avoid this, do I have any non-invasive options? Would Depo-Provera help?
362249 tn?1441318618 I'm probably gonna pi$$ some people off but i think that if a teenager gets PG they need to make it just like in China you get PG out of wedlock and you have to pay a fine!! I guess they would try to get married then in this case and then we would need it like me and my DH have to do with the INS (immigration peeps) they would need proof of a relationship!! So i guess that wouldn't work but I think they need to do something!!
377493 tn?1356505749 My entire adult life I have had a 28 day cycle...only ever altered during the few years I used Depo Provera as a method of birht control, and for the few months I was first off of it. Even after each D&C, with the exception of the first cycle, I was right back to normal. I have been using an ovulation kit for about 11 months or so, and would almost always get my LH surge on day 11 or 12, and if BFN, period on day 28. Last month I got a BFP on about CD 23 and by day 25 was in full flow.
Avatar n tn Maybe I'm being snotty or something, but I currently reside in the Caribbean, and they are offering Mesigyna here, but I haven't heard about its approval or disapproval status in the US or Canada - I'm Canadian - and I tend to prefer to base my medicinal decisions on the standards set in North America. I checked online for some information but all it would say was that it was being tested in Third World countries. Dear Tracy: I have no knowledge of any trials.
Avatar n tn pills are not the most effective birth control next to abstinence.
Avatar f tn I am not sure where you are from but there must be laws to protect you. In Canada when someone is on sick leave they cannot be laid off for 3 months after they return to work. Could you not take action against the company. It must not of been your employer paying you your salary during your leave but rather the insurance company. I can only say that things usually happen for a reason and I am sure there is something much better waiting for you.
Avatar n tn I would agree that it is likely that you this is your normal level. I live in the province of Ontario in Canada and here the government doesn't even pay for you to test your CA125. You have to pay yourself. Some doctors won't even let a pre-menopausal woman have the test. You are doing all the right things to monitor your condition. I would encourage you to come on over to the Ovarian Cyst forum. There is a lot of experience there that you may find helpful.
Avatar n tn Hi! My name is Shannon and I will be 12 weeks tomorrow. DH and I bd'cd every other day from cd7 until cd20. I am not sure when I O'd because the opk never showed a positive. I took Robitussin for 5 days before I thought I should O. My first symptoms (early) were bright blue veins in breasts, headaches and a flushed feeling (my skin was hot). I also had a low grade fever, 99.2. I got the BFP on cd 26 of a 30-31 day cycle. I used to determine my fertile days.
Avatar f tn They are telling me I need a hysterectomy, but before I can get it I need a hysteroscopy first. Telling me it is pre-cancerous, but that 40-55% is usually cancerous. Was also diagnosed with HepC in 11/07, and the blood results were that it was so low it was undectable. Also had a liver biopsy in May 08, but did not get results back yet.Add high blood pressure and high cholesterol to that.
Avatar n tn After many different kinds of pills, including one progestogen only pill( that worked but was then taken off the market), my family planning clinic put me on Depo Provera. I remained on Depo for 12 years! I did have a 1 year break only because I was in a country where it wasn't available, and all the spotting symptoms and heavy periods returned. I finally came off all contraception 3 years ago. And of course, the bleeding returned.
Avatar f tn )) I have pelvic pain but the depo provera- my doc doesn't like this BC but I do- helps ALOT- I have endometriosis. I was diagnosed with it by surgery after trying a long time to get pregnant with my son. I hope some of my experience can help others.
Avatar f tn Anyways I don't know where any of you ladies are from, but I live in Canada and have never heard of dilation and I have been dealing with stenosis for 14 years. Talk to your doctors about having your cervix lasered it worked for me.
Avatar n tn I was on Depo for a year and my last shot was in Nov. 2003. I had not had a period until June 2004 and then my cycles were all screwy and I was not ovulating. I started taking Vitex and B6 and on my second mth with ovulation we conceived. I was so worried because I had 3 losses prior to my DD. As a matter of fact the year I got pregnant with her I had been told I proably would not be able to carry a child. That was in January of 1999.
Avatar n tn Well, after the miscarriage I stopped having periods because I immediately got on the Depo Provera shot. Once I got off the shot i had a period every 2 weeks... then all of a sudden I didnt have a period for 6 weeks, and when I finally had one it was short and a lot lighter than normal... then after that one i didnt have a period for another 6 weeks, and then found out I was pregnant.
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 48 yrs old and have been coping with acne with varying degrees of intensity all of my life i've taken drugs used topicals vit A steva ect ect i've be on courses of different horomes and even injections provera in the late 70's which i'm pretty sure didn't do much to improve my general health mental emotional or physical also depo whatever injections in 1998 in association with severe endometriosis.
Avatar f tn I recently went off the pill because I was waiting to get an IUD put in by my doctor...but I live in Canada and it takes a few months to even get in to see your doctor. So, during that time, I still had sex with my bf. The first two months off the pill, I had my period at the same time as i always did, but this is the third month...and still no period...I am about a week late. I took 2 pregnancy tests and they both came back neg.
280700 tn?1210287416 i got pregnant using clomid for recurrent miscarriage on the first round last august. ended in miscarriage though. good luck to you.
