1456473 tn?1365831055 Hi. Currently on depo provera. Next shot is not due until december 2015 and i would like to try conceive my 4th baby some time within the near future. Iv been researching and found you can fall pregnant anywhere between 4 months after last shot and 3 years after last shot? Also it is very bad for baby to conceive 4months after last shot or conceiving too soon? Has any one any experience on this? Madly broody.
Avatar n tn I was given a shot of depo-provera yesterday...and when I asked about side affects all I was told was nausea, headache, and dizziness. After reading quite a few articles online, it seems there are a lot more serious side affects than I was led to believe. I've been having lots of chest pain and shortness of breath, but the doctor doesn't seem to think it's related to the shot.
Avatar n tn I began noticing severe menopausal symptoms about three months after I cycled off of my preferred birth control method Depo Provera. When I finally looked online to find out what was wrong with me (no period for 6 months, difficulty sleeping, incredible hot flashes and night sweats, excessive weight gain, a lot of crying, etc.) menopause kept coming up as one of the possible causes. After extensive testing at my doctor’s office I was told I was menopausal.
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 am 19 years old, and just recently become sexually active with my boyfriend, we used protects and have both been tested, so all is good there. Okay... a week ago I got my depo Provera shot... and since then I have been hungry all of the time and have had cravings for anything sweet, saly, greasy, you name it, I've craved it... I also have been feelings nausiated at times... I am having terrible aches in my legs and arms...
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 f tn I've just turned 18 and I've been using the depo shot for at least 7 months because the pill was making me sick.When I asked my Nurse about depo she just told me about the positives which left me very much in the dark about this contraception.Since starting my shots I have gained 14LBS in just SEVEN months!!I have gone back to the nurse since and explained that my diet and exercise hasn't changed but I'm gaining weight,she wasn't exactly sympathic and insisted I eat less!
Avatar f tn I wonder what the difference between the two depo shots are and I wonder why my gyno recommended the other depo shot if the depo-subq provera 104 shot is specific for endo ?
Avatar n tn It can take 12-18 months for Depo Provera to be completely out of your system. But probably much less since you only had once shot.
315867 tn?1193593448 Have faith. I was on depo for a year and got pregnant while I was still on it. Keep trying and good luck!
Avatar f tn The Gyno suggested I start using the depro provera for treatment (injections once a month). I was already using the shot for birth control (once every 3 months) so it seemed like the logical thing to do. This was the first month having them back to back. I got the shot at 10 in the morning and by 11 pm I was hospitalized in severe pain. I thought I was dying.The doctors were totally useless and accused me of only wanting drugs.
Avatar n tn Hi! I had my first baby in January of 2006 and I got the depo provera shot 2 days after she was born. It lasted for 3 months, and then I had to get another one... But I decided not to because after I had the baby I gained 50 pounds in 3 months because of the shot. So I went on the pills... 3 months after I stopped the Depo, I was pregnant again! So in my case it didn't take long to conceive after getting the stupid thing. I hope everything works out for you, and you get what your wishing for!!!!
Avatar n tn does taking depo provera for 3 months make you infertile?
Avatar m tn Hi there, I received my third depo provera injection on time (11 weeks past last injection), but I'm concerned the nurse didn't shake the vial enough prior to injection. She did shake it for a couple seconds, but I've read online that the vial should be shaken vigorously and I've even read that it should be shaken for as long as one minute. Will my injection still be effective if it was only shaken briefly? Or should I use back up protection (condoms) until my next shot?
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 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.
587385 tn?1288966111 The shot you are talking about is Depo-Provera.

Avatar f tn So I've been on Depo Provera for nearly a year ; I'm due for my 4th shot in one month. My boyfriend and I typically use condoms when we have sex, but since I'm on birth control, there are times when we don't. Like Valentines Day. This was roughly 5 weeks ago. One week after Valentines Day, we had sex again, unprotected. That day, though, I started what seemed like an extended period (lasted almost four weeks). I assumed it was from the Depo, like always, and paid it no true attention.
5856747 tn?1403352282 What do you make of this? How would you advise? About a week ago,on my Online Medical Advice website, a young woman from South Africa wrote to me as follows: “I have been thinking of asking for professional help for a while, because there seems to be a serious problem that I just can’t ignore. I am 32 years old, married for 7 years to a man two years my junior. Together we have four lovely children.
Avatar n tn I read that Depo provera causes an increase in appetite which can lead to weight gain and that 2/3's of women who take it have some ( usually modest) weight gain,the rest lose weight or stay the same. There are online food/exercise trackers, like, that help people track what they eat and what they burn for free. A person who averages eating just 70 calories a day more than they burn will gain 7 pounds a year, so if it's a concern, a diary of intake and activity might be helpful.
182493 tn?1348056515 read your post to Marce... i have always feared twins... so much in fact i was on Depo Provera for 8 years... which is way toooo long to be on it if you wanna keep your bones... my mom is a twin and her mom and two sets of twins out of 10 kids.. i was always told I would have em....luckily i was an only child so my odds go down a bit.. congrats on your baby (babies??
Avatar m tn I'm not familiar with that birth control. I'm familiar with depo provera but not this one. I think that your questions should be addressed to her doctor, who would be the best person to answer these questions, since the doctor is the one who gave her the shot. Tell her to call her doctor or to speak with a nurse at her doctor's office for help.
Avatar f tn I stopped taking depo provera in November my period returned in May and since then I have had normal periods. All lasting 5 days in duration.
Avatar f tn I've never used the Depo, but grew up working in medical offices and know that many women prefer them. You seem to have had alot of problems with US birth control, but also that you've done some research. I have had to make several changes in regards to my birth control (usually pills) due to a medical condition that I have (PCOS). In my most resent research, I found that different pills have such different hormone levels and variations. I'm not sure if you've through of this, or tried it.
Avatar f tn If it is ask ur dr about provera, u might not b ovulating. I was so irregular after getting off depo. It took me 3years to become regular. But I didnt think nothing of it till the 3rd year of irregularity were I than was put on provera. It was a quick fixed n got pregnant fast. Also for 2nd pregnancy I used the app "my days" n it tells u when u r goin to ovulate. Try having intercourse every other day when ur most fertile leading to ovulating. It jus took me one try.
