1909968 tn?1322067512 I was on the depo needle for years and recently stopped, the last needle I was supposed to get was in July. I recently started my period(light) the week of the 8th of nov 2011. My period seemed normal, so in my mind all was well. My boyfriend and I had sex the 13th (the end of my period) and did not use a condom.

Avatar n tn The test where they put a needle into your muscle and listen to it shows that there is some abnormality, but the shock test shows there is nothing blocking the electricity. I have been on depo provera for 3 years. I was looking at the side effects to the depo shot online a few days ago - one of the side effects is paralysis. However, I cannot find any stories on how this paralysis is manifested. Does the depo shot cause nerve damage, and how does it go about it?
Avatar n tn I have been on depo since feb 2005 and had my last needle sept 2005. December 15 i started to get heavy bleeding the time when i was due for my next needle. the bleeding stoped around december 25, since then around the middle of january i experienced two days of some light brown spotting only when i wiped. i've been having some early signs of pregnancy like being tired, fuller breast, frequent trips to the bathroom, neausa, headache, and bloating.
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 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.
1714443 tn?1309691571 More than likely she was given depo provera.....if she hasn't gotten the needle again since Feb then it's more than likely worn off by now. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn I have recently been off the depo-provera birth controle needle its been about 2 months and since then ive had a mild period but not much and it was brownish colored, also my breast have been very sensitive almost as if icant touch them. I've been getting really bad abdominal pains and my home pregnancy test was negative. And lately it seems like im alwayse worn out and tierd. I'm not shure what to do please help.
Avatar f tn If you were my patient, I would advise you that the depo provera injection is a very good and convenient form of birth control. Many patients use if for years and love it. Often there is some irregular bleeding initially when the shot is first begun, but after that most people don't have much more than infrequent spotting. If you get your shots on time the method is approximately 99% effective. I DO advise my patients to take a calcium supplement while on Depo. Good luck!
3105573 tn?1355983065 depression and mood swings so bad it almost ended my relationship. Depo Provera is used as a chemical sterilizer for sex offenders. Probably the single most effective birth control barring a hysterectomy! It does not have that effect in all women but I would be extremely careful with it. I love the NuvaRing but if you are going to breastfeed you won't be able to use it because of the progesterone. If you can not be consist with pills I would look into an intrauterine device (IUD).
Avatar n tn So I have been on Depo-Provera for many years. My last dose was last Tuesday, but I think maybe I was given it...wrong? The nurse seemed very inexperienced to start, but my biggest concerns are how much it hurt when she gave it(it usually barely stings), the fact that some of the solution actually started dripping out of the injection site for a while, and also that there was a big lump in my arm for several days afterward. Now it's a bruise, but no lump. I'm wondering...
Avatar n tn HI THERE I WOULDNT DOUBLE UP ON MY DEPO PROVERA QUITE YET ESPECIALLY IF YOUR BODY IS TELLING YOU YOU ARE PREGNANT I WAS ON THE NEEDLE. AND I GOT PREGNANT WITH MY 3RD CHILD WITH IT AND I WAS TAKING IT FOR 2 YEARS BEFORE I GOT PREGNANT.
Avatar m tn It was probably depo provera (if it was birth control). How long have you been TTC? If it's been a year or more then it's time to talk with your doctor because he may want to do some testing on your hormones. If there are something wrong with your hormones I don't think it's from the depo though. If anything birth control doesn't have you ovulate so your eggs are preserved (that is of course until you go off the medication and start ovulating again).

Avatar n tn Saw numerous gynos-always tested negative for STDs etc. (saw lots of shoulder shrugging) -have been on depo-provera for aprox 4 years -have reoccuring yeast infections -no bad odour -I don't use soap or other irritants Aprox. 3 mths ago I started to have intense pain of the vulva, saw a gyno, was treated for yeast w/ monistat. BURNING HAS NOT GONE AWAY. +aprox. 2months ago I started getting red bumps that turned into white looking blisters-very painful.
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.
1972798 tn?1355552867 Have you thought about the depo-provera shot every three months?? Thats what i was on...i would never do an IUD either...freaks me out personally...but after this baby im getting my one tube removed!! Game over here!! My baby makin days are numbered!

10977101 tn?1414282594 and it didn't help the cramps or the heavy bleeding. went back and was put on the depo provera shot and my mom asked the doctor what could be causing me to have severe cramps and the weight loss. the doctor told my mom that i was aneroxic and bulemic and that i should see a pyschatrist. after that being said i decided to not go back to that obygn after i stopped taking the depo provera shot because that wasn't helping the pain either. at that point in my life i was loosing hope.
Avatar n tn Maybe a pill that just has estrogen? There are also condoms, diaphrams, IUD's, sponge, patch, Depo provera, etc. I wouldnt be so concerned about when my period it as much as figuring out and trying to cure whats causing the migranes. But its best to talk to your OB/GYN about birth control that is right for you.
