Avatar f tn I missed a dose of Depo provera by 7 days now. I know that I am not pregnant due to no intercourse. My question is do I still have to wait until I get a cycle? What if I dont have a cycle for several months, in the past my cycle was abnornal to begin with. If I have the depo without being on my cycle will I still be protected? I started the depo Aug. 2008. And had never missed a dose until this time. My dose was due May 1, 2009. Can anyone help me with this???
Avatar n tn I should add that no contraceptive is 100% effective, so getting pregnant isn't totally impossible. If is more likely if you missed a depo dose, and maybe if you were toward the end of a treatment period, i.e. another dose was about due. But as I said, I am not an expert in this area, nor in whether it might harm the baby. If in doubt, go to a health care provider.
Avatar n tn I have continued the Depo shot for four and a half years now. I missed the last dose in late September because of the flu. So now I have to wait until Nov 2 for my appoinment at planned parenthood. I have been having my period for about three weeks now. I had not been having my period at all while on the shot. My guts are in severe pain. In fact I have been having many sympotms associated with Depo for a long time. Unexplainable headaches. Stomache pain. Anxiety and depression. Acne (Im 22!).
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 curerently just finished my 12 day dose of Provera to start my period so I can begin Clomid. Last time I took Provera I got pregnant with my son. I was wondering how soon after you take the provera does your period come and if I was pregnant then how soon would I be able to tell?
Avatar n tn My husband and I are TTC and I took the Depo shot twice and stopped 11/04 and then started BCP till 8/05 and havent had a period since except with provera. I think the Depo is still in my system and is screwing everything up. I hope the provera works for you and best of luck with the clomid.
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 n tn We have been trying to have a baby for a year now. I am not prenant. I wish I was. I just finished my last dose of provera this morning and still no period. I have had many urine test and 2 blood test and negative. I am really for my period so we can start Clomid again. I get frustrated and then I calm down. I would love to talk to someone in the same position. I know I can get pregnant we had 2 m/c last year.
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 n tn i missed my period almost 3wiks and i go to ob and gave me provera i start took provera yesterday i hve 5 pills i have 2nd thought if i take it all coz i think im pregnant,pls help me if i take all of those pills and im pregnant is there any posevitity to harm my baby?
Avatar n tn Everything was fine for me on WB until I upped my dose - then I had mood swings and missed periods. After 3 months without a period, they found my prolactin (hormone that deals in lactation and suppression of periods amongst other things) levels were twice the far-end-of-normal limit. My doc had me go off the meds for a few weeks to see if they were the problem, or something more serious - after those few weeks, the level thankfully went back to normal (but still no period - yet).
Avatar f tn I have had a yeast infection nonstop for about 3 years in conjunction with periodic urinary tract infections, I also have had biweekly to bimonthly chronic throat infections both on and around the tonsils (white stones) and major swelling causing pressure on my ears to the point of frequent ear aches for eight months along with forever surfacing blister type fluid filled lesions to join the other two types of infections.
Avatar f tn Now i am waiting for my gynecologist appointment to come through.I am so worried at the moment.I am sure it is because of Depo Provera AND NOT CANCER.I told her that i have read a lot of reviews of woman who had the sam on going bleeding for months,but she kind of ignored that. I just wonder how will they stop that bleeding?When it is going to stop?
Avatar n tn I have been on depo provera for some time now. I recently had unprotected sex. I am worried about the possibility of pregnancy. But with the depo I no longer have my periods so I don't know when would be the best time to take a pregnancy test if I feel I may be pregnant. Can someone give me advice?
Avatar n tn I have missed my June and July period and negative pregnancy tests. Dr has called in Provera and I will pick it up tomorrow and start taking it. I would be interested in some of the results as well. How long into the pills did it take for your period to return. Any other information will help as well.
Avatar n tn I have had endo for over ten years now and after a few surgeries and depo provera i finally put my foot down along with my husband and said Enough is enough, i couldnt live like that any longer! so i started Lucrin in Jan and i've got my last injection in a few days time. I was terrified of going on it after reading side effects but...the hot flushes, night sweats, headaches and feeling pregnant lol are nothing compared to how much pain i was in before!
Avatar m tn i had my last period in january 2011 followed by the depo provera i was meant to go back for the second dose in march but didnt go i havent had a period since ive done a pregnancy test back in april which was negative i had unprotected sex on 22nd may is there a chance i could be pregnant and i also have alot of white discharge.

Avatar f tn 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. If you are apprehensive regarding the status of your pregnancy you can get it checked. Most home pregnancy tests that check urine beta-HCG are sensitive to 20-25 mIU/ml of HCG. The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after, but usually it should be done 7-10 days past your missed period.

419158 tn?1316575204 It has been very light (I only need to wear liners and im fine). But its been 9 days already and is showing no sign of ending!!!! I did get the depo shot after Taylor was born before leaving the hospital. Do you guys think that could have done something?? I normally have AF for 2 maybe 3 days and im done. This is my 4th baby so I do know that things can be screwed up after having a baby.................but 9 days???? This is getting old:-( Anyone eles have this happen?? Im so frustrated!
Avatar n tn With every woman it can be different. Though the makers of depo-provera are hesitant to state how long it will take to become fertile again, all over the internet the average time given is 12-18 months.
Avatar f tn my doctor put me in Depo Provera, and I got pregnant 3 times off of it. So she said I can't go on Depo because I am the few it does not work for. Same with Marena. Marena is not good for my uterus apparently and my uterus will most likely shot it out. So i am only allowed on the mini pill which my gyno put me on RIGHT after I had my D&C for a molar pregnancy in Janurary.
Avatar n tn Well I wasn't trying to get pregnant and I have no other symtpoms other than a missed period and I informed my Doc that I seriously need to get on the shot that you take once a month because the Depo- Provera gave me cervical cancer so they had to perform surgery and they put me on the Yasmin 28 to help my body heal and I just don't take those very well as I mentioned earlier and today is day 3 of my missed period so I think I'll do a pregnacy test first thing in the morning...
Avatar f tn That then went away and on CD 21 I had just a little bit of blood when I wiped just once a little more light spotting that day and that too went away. On CD 24 I was due to take my monthly dose of provera and even though I have never had a BFP I still took a HPT first. It was negative like always so I took my pill. That would make AF start yesterday.
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 My last pregnancy test was negative. I was on Depo Provera and birth control pills for several years. I have no children and that was my only pregnancy ever. At this point I really feel I will be infertile forever. When I read the posts on here it seems like everybody who miscarried in March or April is either pregnant or at least has normal periods. And it also seems my situation is so unusual nobody has any suggestions.
Avatar f tn Went back to Dr in Jan (5 days from end of my first pack) and she told me she wanted to put me on the injection - Depo Provera. So I accepted. She gave me the injection on 10th Jan, I was taking still my final 5 pill of the pack. The bleeding stopped for these five days but when I finished the pill I started spotting again on just the Depo. Spotting for one week then by the second week it turned into a full on period which got heavier by the day.
