Depo provera menstrual cycle

Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera menstrual cycle


Avatar f tn It usually occurs regularly, around day 14 of a 28-day menstrual cycle. The best timing of intercourse in order to conceive is day 10, 12, 14 and 16 (in case of late ovulation) of a 28 day cycle. After intercourse, do not wash immediately and keep on lying for some time. You can also keep a pillow under your buttocks so that semen does not come out. Have plenty of foreplay or use water based lubricants during intercourse. Drugs like Clomiphene can be used for helping in conception.
505857 tn?1329685117 I stopped the Depo shot August 2007 and had my first menstrual cycle Nov 2007, we have been trying to conceive ever since with no luck. Could anyone tell me, I am looking to start taking the pill to try and regulate my system again, does this work? I have heard many people have done this after coming off Depo and it has worked, but i'm not sure what to do. My periods are a regular 26 days but are pretty heavy. Any advice is much appreciated!!!!

1636874 tn?1311551031 Does having sex for the first time throw off your menstrual cycle, maybe? Please answer ASAP! Thanks!
Avatar m tn I just got a shot of depo-provera birth control 3 days ago and my period was supposed to start yesterday and it hasn't. I am sexually active and the last time I had sex was on my period last month and we used condoms but I wasn't on birth control and my partner did not go all the way. I just went to the GYN and got my annual pelvic exam and my first shot of depo and so far everything has been okay.
Avatar f tn So I started Depo provera 2 weeks and 2 days ago and I had unprotected sex 7 days after the shot and I was worried and called my docter to see going to be effective they said yes cuz its been a week & I jus had unprotected sex again the second week after taking depo but dis time he cummed in me but im kind kind of worried should I be? Ive felt growls in tummy I feel naseus somtimes & the day before yesterday I ate once & didnt wana eat again...
Avatar f tn are you pregnant? It sounds like you are. If not are you on depo provera shot? That can do it too.
Avatar f tn Depo Provera { Started 5/20/2010, Last Shot 2/9/2012 } Before I started getting the Depo Provera Injections I always had a normal, slightly heavy period. Minimal cramping. After taking Depo Provera for 1 year I finally lost my periods.
Avatar n tn I am 25 and I had my second child 16 months ago. I was on Depo Provera for about nine months (I had three injections) following my daughters birth. But now I still have not had a menstrual cycle (it's been over seven or eight months since my last injection). Is this normal or should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn It's March of '11 and I still havent had a period, I didnt have my period, or really ever blot during the use of the Depo Provera, and I've taken tests to see if I'm pregnant but they've came out negative. Is this normal? When should I expect my period?
Avatar m tn The first injection should be given in the first five days of a normal menstrual cycle (day one is the first day of your period). This will protect you from pregnancy immediately. But if you start on some other day, you will need to use additional contraception, eg condoms for the first seven days after having the injection. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn Hi, I 1st got Depo-Provera when I was 16 and I stoped when I was 21 I am 23 now and will be 24 on dec, 3 of this year. I have tryed to get pregnat for I think a year. Me and my Huby have sex as much as we can like every other day. I have been Calendar tracking My menstrual cycles and they have been like this...
Avatar f tn Hi Im a 20 year old female and I had two 3-month interval shots of the Depo-provera birth control last year. I had my last shot in early October 07 following a 2 week period approximately a week later. I havent had my menstrual cycle since? l've addressed my doctor when I went for a totally different thing and she said it could take a year to get it back? Is this correct?Thank you!
Avatar f tn But what I don't know is considering the fact that since being on Depo, I have had pretty much no menstrual cycle for a very long time. I was never really regular with my period before going on the Depo, either. Could I be somehow harming my reproductive system by being without a period for so long? I know that I definately want to have children in the future, and I would be very upset if I had inadvertently made it harder for myself to have my own children.
Avatar n tn To re-hash, I was put on Depo-Provera for endometriosis. I'm at the end of the second month of its three month effective range, and everything's been fine so far. (I had surgery on 5/17, light bleeding until about the beginning of the second week of June, then nothing since *yay*). For the past 3-4 days, I've been getting that 'pre-period' feeling (slightly *ugh*, little crampy on the side where the cyst was, and mucousy discharge.
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?
Avatar f tn My first shot of depo ended May 15 2015. I didn't go back for a second shot. Changes in menstrual cycle is expected but this month was weird. I got my first period after depo in May. Two days after it expired. It lasted bout a week, was light, fairly normal. Then I bled again bout two weeks later that lasted about a week and a half also light. So I bled twice in May. I skipped the month of June, no period.
Avatar f tn Hi! If you were my patient, I would discuss depo provera with you. After a few injections periods often stop or at least diminish to spotting. A side effect of depo can be weight gain if you are not careful. If you weren't interested in that I would discuss the Mirena IUD--that is inserted into the uterus and after a few weeks usually gets rid of the period for many people. We are definitely using it in virgins and women who have not been pregnant and it is very safe.
432411 tn?1206475709 I was on Depo Provera for BC for 8 years with no side effects but headaches, which were manageable. Also had no periods, which was great! However, I became ill when I stopped having the injections at age 45. I experienced fatigue, joint pain and swelling, and depression. I was tested for everything from Lyme disease and Lupus, to thyroid conditons - all negative. My Dr. finally gave up and diagnosed me with Chronic Fatigue syndrome.
Avatar n tn About a year ago i had a pelvic ultrasound and they found blood clots in my uterus and this was caused by being on the depo provera shot for 2 years.I have been passing them for a bout a yaer now.Maybe you should set up an appt with your gy.Im sure they will be able to tell you why your passing blood clots as they did me.Hope everthings alright for you.

Avatar n tn Back in Sept 2009 i received the Depo-Provera shot. I never repeated the shot after that (therefore there was only one administered). It is now Aug 2010 and i have still yet to start a menstrual cycle (I have not had sex in over a year, therefore no possibility of pregnancy). I went to my GYN and he gave me Prometrium to hopefully start my period, nothing. He then gave me birth control to see if that would make me start.....still nothing for two months.
Avatar f tn I was on depo shot for about 6months and when my 3rd shot was due I didn't go get it. I been off the shot for about 4-5 months and my menstrual cycles returned to their regular function within the first month after missing the last shot(28 day cycle and 4-5 days of AF.) I am a very healthy woman in a very healthy fit condition. I was wondering around how long does it take to get pregnant after the last shot. I didn't have any weight gain nor didn't stopped my periods.
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...
1856888 tn?1325186544 usually best use of depo-provera is that you do not delay the next injection with in 1/2 weeks. i am not sure after missing one month when are you suppose to start provera. however with medication Normally the level of progesterone in your blood increases about a week before your period. If medroxyprogesterone is taken for 5 to 10 days each month at this time (ie day 16 to 21 of your cycle) it mimics the natural rise in your progesterone levels.
Avatar f tn Quick question... which Depo are you on? There are two kinds, that I'm aware of: Depo Provera or Depo Lupron. I had tried the Provera when I was about 16 for about a year. I had to stop because I could not handle the side effects any longer. I did spot for about 3 months. It usually takes a few months for your system to get used to it. The Lupron stops your period completely and basically puts your body into menopause, which is the one I am currently on.
Avatar n tn Please, though, for your sake and for the sake of LIFE, do not use elective abortions as a form of birth control; get on something strong, such as Depo Provera or the patch, and use it as directed to avoid this in the future. Take care, and God bless.
Avatar n tn Contraceptive effectiveness is achieved within 24 hours of receiving Depo-Provera. Depo-Provera should be administered during the first five days of a normal menstrual cycle (in order to avoid inadvertent administration during pregnancy) and/or immediately following pregnancy termination. Depo-Provera may also be administered at any time, and with no added precautions if the woman is currently on the combined oral contraceptive pill or the progestin only pill and is definitely not pregnant.
