depo-provera

Avatar n tn Depo Provera is costing me my relationship with my husband. After 7 years married (today) he confessed to me to be emotionally drained... wow... that's because we never have sex. And when we do it feels to me like a job. I don't enjoy it, I want it to be over fast. I definitely NOT GETTING my next shot. I guess I'll go back to the pill =/ Being a woman is a wonderful thing, but chemical birth control *****. Good luck to the ones that keep trying.

Avatar f tn i have tried everything, from lupron, to laparoscopies, to yaz, to smoking marijuana - currently i am on Depo Provera and have been for the past year and a half. I am noticing a lot of side affects from this as time goes on, and unfortunately for me this has been the only thing that even remotely helps, and i still have a lot of pain.
4069776 tn?1349521984 Hello, I was on depo provera for 9 years, I had my last shot in Jan 2012 and was suppose to come get my next shot April 2012, My doctor informed me that it would be fine for me to just stop taking it because I did so well while I was on it and that I should be fine coming off of it, well I didnt. I had horrible side effects from July and they are still happening now, I have had every test done (ultrasounds, blood test, endoscopes, ect.) and everything came back normal.
Avatar n tn Despite what docs reassure you, please READ THE SIDE EFFECTS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS OF DEPO PROVERA ON THEIR SITE!! Here are some things you may not have been told: * antibiotics DO decrease the effect of any birth control, whether it is oral, topical, or by injection. * bleeding can and does occur during pregnancy, and esp.
Avatar n tn I have been on the depo for 5 years and have recently stopped. My injection was due a few days ago but I did not get it. On previous occasions if I have had the injection a couple of days before it was due I would start to spot which would last about a week. So far I have not started to spot and have been feeling nauseous, is nausea a common side affect of stopping the depo or could it be something else?
Avatar f tn Hi Elana, Google Depo shot side effects, there not very nice, surggest you read them, not sure how often you have them, but you should think about coming of them, but that is your choice.
Avatar n tn My girlfriend started using the depo-provera shot about a month ago. We abstained from sex for a week after the injection just to be safe. Two weeks after the injection we had to make a visit to her family practice doctor because we had a hunch that she had a bladder infection. We were right. The doctor prescribed her to take 250 mg of Ciprofloxacin twice daily and of course Phenazopyridine for the pain.
Avatar f tn I had only taken one depo provera shot and was due to have my second one between June 30 and July 13, I didn't take the second one. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex July 2nd-5th every day. Is it possible that I'm pregnant? I have had slight bleeding almost every day since but it recently stopped, it was just like spotting, not a flow, only a tinge of color when wiping. I am having many symptoms of pregnancy (nausea, extreme fatigue, headaches, bleeding gums, etc).
Avatar n tn I have had 2 depo provera injections since february 8th this year and have felt amazing, Ive had no side effects and no periods it has given me my life and freedom back however yesterday I started with discharge and light bleeding, is this normal when I havent had a thing since Feb (6 months ago) have to say I am gutted :(
290291 tn?1258156913 on your 13 week, yea right, doctors need to be more informative with this depo because i wouldve never got it, i could be prego now if it wasnt for depo. I started getting side effects a week before my shot was due and have had them ever since. severe abdominal pain,depression, mood swings, severe hair loss, very bad acne, gaining weight, just dont feel like myself. i also had a false prego on depo right after my shot was due test came up positive but i wasnt.
Avatar n tn Hi! I'm new to this so please bare with me! I had depo provera injections from Apr 06 - Mar 07 (last one). BF & I have been actively TTC since then - My periods stopped at the 2nd injection and I have not had one since Aug 06. I have had a blood test in Aug which showed estridol 124pg/ml (in the follicular phase) and some more blood tests this week for prolactin which was normal, FSH - 4, LH - 5, and Estridol 489pg/ml. But sill no periods.
Avatar n tn I had my last depo injection january 26th 2007, I began to get a period in june and have been on and off sice then, how long should this last?
Avatar n tn I was on Depo provera for a few years, in 1999 I went off of it and I got pregnant,I was thrilled untill I started bleeding, I went to the hospital and found out I had miscarried, I had tried to get pregnant since then and I was prescribed Clomid last year. I got pregnant again, but lost that baby at 9 weeks. it has been heartbreaking. i cry everyday. I know now that it was because of the Depo. I have a hard time when all of my friends around me are getting pregnant with no problem.
4069776 tn?1349521984 I am wondering if any one else is going through Depo Provera withdrawals? I was on it for 9 years and recently me and my husband decided to go off of it since we knew that this form of birth control can take up to 18 months if you are ttc. i was due for my shot in April and when the time came I went to my doctor to discuss getting off of it and the possible side effect or problems that I might encounter. He basically assured me that nothing will happen because I did so well while I was on it.
Avatar n tn The docotors believe I may have a progesterone problem due to Depo Provera. I was on Depo for 6 years and went off the shot in Sept. Does anyone know if the effects of this shot can linger and cause lower progesterone levels?

193609 tn?1292183893 If you read that not all these women had the same answer about their side effects... because we all are different. I am on my 3rd injection of the depo shot, and everything was ok up until that 3rd injection. I feel horrible on this shot!! DO not get it... if you did get it don't go back for another one! I know i ain't! I learned a lesson!
Avatar n tn Well, in February 2006, after having a Laparoscopy and a discussion with the Gynaecologist I went for DEPO. WOW… I got the side effects, gain weight, swing moods, I even forgotten the rucksack on a train station when on holiday in Fort William…cool…I was crying from nothing, shooting to my husband for nothing, having periods now and then, spots, bleeding,etc, etc.
1891325 tn?1321126576 Depo provera's side effects: • Depression. Several studies report that these occur in less than 5% of users. But should you have a tendency or already suffering from depression then you are more susceptible to this side effect. • Emotional liability, nervousness, fatigue, depression, dizziness. One injection will likely be out in three months. Still, it depends on your muscle as it is a muscular deposit. Seems like you have premenstrual syndrome. Actually, pill 24/4 can help you with that.
Avatar f tn At the end of June I had received an injection on one butt cheek for depo provera... In the second week of august I noticed a dent clearly visible to the naked eyes... I feel very insecure about this! Will this type of dent heal with time or should I look into some type of filler? I don't know what to do...
Avatar n tn I have never taken Depo, but I know of many women who have taken it with horrible side effects. In particular, there a lot of women that have gotten off of it in order to try to get pregnant and have not been able to conceive. It is probably impossible to prove a direct link between Depo and infertility, but this seems to be a somewhat common problem. Ultimately, the choice is yours, but continue to do some more research on it. There may be other options that are better for you.
Avatar f tn Is is possible that my son (who is now 16) has Autism because of Depo Provera birth control shots I received? My other 2 children are fine as I wasn't using any birth control with them. I received 2 shots and wasn't aware that I got pregnant during this time.........Is there a connection??
