413769 tn?1231390824 suffice to say I don't like taking pills.) I've been looking more into the injectable forms of birth control (i.e. depo provera) and it seems like it might be a good alternative for me. For those of you who use this method what have been your experiences? I've read online about side effects including irregular bleeding and weight gain, but I've also read the injections can help regulate menstruation and even stop it all together. I'd appreciate any feedback you can offer.
Avatar f tn Hi Dr. Goodman, I wonder if you have any information about how Depo-Provera can change the symptoms of ovarian cancer v. ovarian cysts? I have been on Depo-Provera for two years and it seems that it would mask all the symptoms that are most likely to identify a cyst vs. a tumour. Do you know anything about how the two would look different in the presence of Depo-Provera?
1945416 tn?1324169477 Hello, If you stop getting Depo-Provera injections, your period usually returns within 3 to 10 months but sometimes it may take 12-18 mths. This kind of spotting can be due to hormonal effects by depo shots or due to return of your periods. It will take a few cycles for the regular menstrual cycles to come back to the normal self. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

Avatar f tn Depo Provera is an injectable which is taken every three months and is also popular. Lots of options. Be sure to discuss with your doctor before deciding Good luck!
Avatar n tn I also have a fatty liver and endometriosis. I was diagnosed with the fatty liver 6 months after taking a single dose of Depo Provera - an injectable 3rd world synthetic progesterone birth control. Needless to say, I am compliant to the CPAP, it is really the only thing that seems to be dragging me through this. Just wondering if anyone else has shared symptoms.
Avatar n tn I've already had 3 shots of Depo-Provera. During my last visit to the doctor however, they said that they had run out of Depo and so were injecting me with Norestarat (Narestarat?) instead. Unlike depo, it's effective for two month only. Can you tell me anything about thsi drug, i.e. its effectivity, side effects, etc. is it ikay to switch between 2 types of injectables? Dear Kate: Our pharmacy is unable to identify a drug with a name like Norestarat or another injectable progestin.
101028 tn?1419606604 Seven were on the pill, one used injectable Depo-Provera, and one the vaginal ring NuvaRing. Results showed genital fluid from the women using hormonal contraception had significantly less anti-herpes activity compared with the other women, she tells WebMD. Shust stresses that the study was small and the findings need confirmation in other research.
Avatar n tn My friend just went from the patch to the pill and her Dr said she had to use a back up method for 7 days. But according to http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/2965.html they say you are protected immediately. "If a woman's previous method was injectable birth control, such as Depo Provera, she needs to begin using the COCs (estrogen and progestin combined oral contraceptive) or POPs (progestin-only pill) when the next shot is scheduled in order to be continually protected from pregnancy.
Avatar n tn I'm 40 (today!), and still on birth control. I've been on birht control for 20 years, and neither my endo or oncologist has mentioned any link. My bloodwork actually shows me entering menopause, so I'll probably go off b/c soon. As for the heredity part, I'm the first in the family to have any thyroid issues. After I was diagnosed with ThyCa, my mother, several aunts and cousins were tested, and all came back quite normal. I'm not sure what to make of any of this!!

Avatar n tn Hormonal contraceptives that contain only progestogen like the oral contraceptive Micronor, and especially higher-dose formulations like the injectable Depo Provera commonly induce this side-effect. Extended cycle use of combined hormonal contraceptives also allow suppression of menstruation.
661650 tn?1302286158 (Other factors such as naturally occurring miscarriages and surprise pregnancies would have some impact on the numbers.) The longer-lasting (three months) Depo-Provera injection acts by altering the lining of the uterus, preventing implantation of the newly conceived life. Based on one million users with an ovulation rate of 40 to 60 percent, combined with a 25-percent conception rate, yields either 1.2 million chemical abortions per year, or on the higher end, 1.8 million a year.
Avatar n tn also i wanted to know what DEPROVERA is ?? Depo-provera is an injection given once every three months to prevent pregnancy. A back-up is only required for the 1st 24 hours. does it have side affects for a woman. Yes, most of the same side effects as the pill, but not everyone gets them, or all of them. Some examples are: Most women who use injectables have changes in their menstrual periods. You may have some spotting or bleeding between your periods.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with a fatty liver after taking depo provera - which is a third world injectable progestin (synthetic progesterone) - it causes full blown osteo in 19year olds. Very dangerous - all kinds of court cases - Pfizer. So, a Naturopath v.s multiple surgeries now seem to be the path I am going down. Your exhaustion may well be core toxicity, neurotransmitters which are out of balance and low projesterone and a weak thyroid.
1432700 tn?1283377350 ). I agree with myenzoorka these 10 weeks have been so nerve wrecking. I over analyze everything thinking I might loose the baby. So far my only issues were normal pregnancy stuff, nausea, vomiting, fatigue. I am also taking metformin, baby aspirin and prometrium and have to continue all three until 13 weeks. I had two doctors that told me I would never get pregnant :). It's possible just don't loose hope :).

The popular Norplant, a subdermal implant of six tiny rods containing only progestin, acts up to five years as an abortifacient.
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!
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.
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 They wanted to start me on provera but I wanted to do a little research first. I was having many pregancy symtoms along with the late period such as feeling tired all the time, nasea,and my husband and family even said that I had the pregnancy glow. Then I got the call today, very frustrating. Then I started felling like I might start. This evening, I had very light spotting - would have missed it if I was not looking, but nothing ever since.
