Depo provera men

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera men


Avatar n tn After being on depo provera for 1 year, I decided to discontinue use and switch to the pill. I decided to be single (and not sexually active) for a while, so I decided to wait until I got my period to start taking the pill. The only problem is that I STILL haven't had a period! It's been 6 or 7 months since I stopped getting the shots. I had normal periods while on the shot, and before I was on the shot, but once I stopped getting it my periods vanished...
Avatar n tn I have been on depo for 11 years. I would be due for my next shot on 9/27 but my Doctor has advised that I stop having it. She has been treating me for migraines and depression with Imitrex (when needed) and a daily dosage of Prozac of 10mg. The Imitrex thankfully, works, and the migraines have also been lessened by the Prozac.

Avatar f tn You have to understand that not only do I have Endo, but because of the consistent mis-diagnoses, and other birth controls to temporarily stop the bleeding, the uterus continues to create the lining that is causing me pain, that lining never stops shedding for me, when on Depo provera I bled right through that, yet it was brown blood, old blood. Same thing with the nexplanon, all brown blood. So along with the pain, I also bleed 24/7.
Avatar n tn I used depo provera injections for two and a half years. It's been over a year since my last injection. within the first six months after stopping the shot I gained 40lbs without a change in my diet and excercise.I was told this was unusual to gain after stopping the shot and that i may never lose the weight. Is this true? or is the only way to go back on the shot because while i was on the shot i actually lost weight.but if that's the answer won't i be trapped on the shot forever?
Avatar f tn I had two chocolate cysts that were around 6 cm x 6 cm x 6 cm, the size of a tennis ball. My gynecologist wants me to take depo provera until I am in menopause. I am only 41. I refuse to take it afraid of all the side effects. I agree we are almost made to feel like we HAVE to take it. My surgeon was very forceful about me having to take it. She does not know I never filled the prescription. Not even willing to take Alesse the birth control pill. I am just waiting and seeing.
Avatar f tn In addition, a woman’s genital tract should be free of any abnormalities to allow the passage of menstrual blood Why is Provera prescribed? Provera is derived from the female hormone progesterone. You may be given Provera if your menstrual periods have stopped or a female hormone imbalance is causing your uterus to bleed abnormally. Provera is also prescribed to prevent abnormal growth of the uterine lining in women taking estrogen replacement therapy.
Avatar n tn I have been off of it for almost a month and I have had no signs of a cycle. This is my second time using depo and the first time I came off of depo I had my period within 3 weeks. This time nothing. What should I expect? If its not the same as last time.
Avatar n tn If you are pregnant your baby is in somewhat in danger by you being injected with the Depo Provera just a couple of months ago. I would make me an appointment at the local clinic or your ob/gyn. Explain to them what is going on. Obviously if your taking the shot you don't want to be pregnant. Your body has to be on a perfect hormonal balance for the egg to implant and survive.
5856747 tn?1403352282 I am a young vibrant woman. I take care of my appearance and I know that men like me, but something has stopped working properly. Please, please help me!” First of all what sticks you about this questioner as odd, or as possibly the root cause of her problem? And secondly, what further information would you like to have before reaching a conclusion and offering some sound advice? Let’s deal with the second question first.
Avatar n tn The mini-pill is progesterone based like depo-provera. In fact it is the same thing, only in a daily pill form instead of the longer acting shot.
1000392 tn?1294097512 I've been crying myself to sleep for the past 3 weeks now. This idea of giving endo patients Depo Lupron is a mistake. Who in their right mind would think it's normal to put a 23 year old in menopause?! So now I have to go through menopause not once but twice? Why is it that a doctor can give you 2 options to "cure" the endo... have a baby or get a hysterectomy?! Especially when you've been told that you will not have children. Endo is a slow emotional killer.
Avatar f tn Remember doctors are humans too, and sometimes they forget that we are not doctors, and cannot afford some of these costly procedures, especially if they are not needed. I was on Lupron-Depo and Depo-Provera, Lupron is like a pseudo-menopause, some (not all cause we are all different) have night sweats, mood-changes etc. I did not notice such problems and Lupron worked short term for me. However longer term I was on Depo-Provera. It work fine.
Avatar m tn You are such a sweet husband to be writing in worried about your wife!! Its nice to see men so involved in this whole process. First off, yes going off of any hormonal birth control can mess up your cycles. When I came off of Depo Provera, my cycles were all over the map for 2 or 3 months at least. And if you have been using protection, it is unlikely she is pregnant, providing you are using it properly. If she is a week late,there is a small possibility she is pregnant.
Avatar n tn ) Is your new birth control the depo provera shot? That CAUSES irregularity in bleeding. 2.) Even if it's not depo, yes, your body COULD be reacting to the new introduction of hormones. 3.) If you just are recovering from a yeast infection, YOU DO NOT WANT TO USE A TAMPON!!!! YOU CAN CAUSE THE YEAST TO STAY AND MULTIPLY EVEN IF IT'S ALMOST GONE!!!!! 4.
Avatar n tn have that drink girl!!!!!!!! I will drink one for ya!
Avatar n tn I began taking Depo Provera in March of 2004 and had my last shot in June of 2004. I began my menstrual cycle in September 25th of 2004. I have been try to have a baby ever since. I wanted to know does that mean that I have began to ovulate and I can now conceive a baby?
Avatar n tn I was on Depo Provera (the shot) until Nov 04, when I was suppose to go for my next one. But it was screwing my body up I opted for BCP's and took them until Aug 05 when Hubby and I decided TTC. Well I never had a period after stopping BCP's so I was given Provera in Dec 05 and got a period...well in Jan same thing no period so I took Provera again...and got a period. The end of Feb I found out I was pregnant. Many women take provera and then clomid.
Avatar f tn My husbads latest therory is the fact i haven't had a period in like 6 years.. i was on Depo Provera for a long time and now the Nuva Ring.. I use the ring continuously and skip periods.. been doing that for like a year.. My sex drive has been shot for about 3 year or so.. i though it was the pills.. now i have been off but its not any better.. i am gonna get my testoterone checked.. and other hormone levels... I started seeing an acupunturist for this... so far hasn't helped..
Avatar f tn Back before my son when I got depo provera shots I didn't get periods on that either. Most hormonal methods make periods shorter and lighter or eliminate them completely.
Avatar n tn After having my 5th child..I took the Depo-Provera shot 2-3 times...I experienced loss of desire and hair loss. Have you been taking any kind of meds for any reason? That could have a lot to do with it..How old is your youngest? Sometimes for awhile after having a baby can affect you, especially if you could be worried about getting pregnant or something.
1284894 tn?1272175054 Went to my GP last week and he gave me more oxycontin controlled release,1 every 12 hours and as these are only lasting about 6 hours, he also gave me endone to take in between. I also have to take 2 panadol every 4 hours. I also had my first depo provera shot this week.It was the 4th day of my period and my period was very heavy, but the next day I had only a few spots of bleeding and today it is a little bit of brown spotting.
Avatar n tn Ive been having irregular periods within the last few years due to depo provera. I was on it for almost 7 years since 1999; got off in 2006 to let my body adjust to normality. I was "living the single life" with protection but sometimes I wonder if there would be some kind of men would be spiteful or loving enough to end my carreer with getting me pregnant without my concent? Just like there women out there who would do that to men out there which I'd never do without thier concent..
Avatar f tn i took Provera from the 6 to the 13th of april on the 14th of april i had an encounter i didnt have sex but i think pre *** went on my upper thigh close to ma vagina. the next day i took pregnon emergency contraceptive (25 hours later i think) then on the 25 of april i had a heavy period last till the 2nd of May.
362249 tn?1441318618 Has any1 watched that movie called Children Of Men? It's how in the future no1 has been able to have kids for 18 yrs!! Every1 is infertile EVERY1!! And i hate to say it but my DH could be right all the chemicals they are putting in B/C is really bad and something like this could just possibly happen one day!! Ok thats my input and gripe!! Feel free to read the article and post comments!! But PLEASE let's be MedHelp friendly no being rude or yelling or insulting!! We are just opinionating here!
Avatar n tn However when women hit menpause they usually don't get them anymore. Is provera a hormone (like depo-provera)? My doc put me on Ovcon35. It seems like it is all just trial & error.
Avatar n tn i have noticed this problem for at least a couple of years and initially my doctor thought it was because i was in depo provera and had abnormal bleeding all the time. i have been on the pill for over 7 months and my periods are back to normal except after this occurrence following orgasm. in april i had an abnormal pap smear that indicated i had HGSIL (high-grade intraepithelial lesions) of the cervix.
Avatar n tn I have a lot of ladies and even some men come to me with severe breast pain. One of the first things we're taught to tell our patients is that typically breast cancer DOESN'T hurt. I feel it necessary to tell you though that there are always exceptions to the rule, okay? I had to say that. Now, an ugly question. How old are you? Are you old enough to perhaps be peri-menapausal? Or coming from a different angle, have you started taking hormones of some sort, i.e.
422823 tn?1229740447 My only concern is that if I don't ovulate my uterine lining could become dangerously too thick again and I would have to take provera to get af. When you don't ov, you don't get a true period and thus my lining built up in the past and I was told this is a pre-cursor to uterine cancer.
