Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera onset

depo-provera

Avatar n tn One thing I noticed during my internet search was a number of results discussing Depo Provera and how it has caused the onset of early menopause in women even in their 20’s. Has anyone else heard about this, and if so, are there other resources I can review to get more information on this correlation? Thanks, I just have to know what is causing this!
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 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. So to regulate the periods, you need to take birth control pills for atleast 6 months. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
280418 tn?1306329510 I stopped the pill and started Depo Provera injections, and the migraines ceased. Now, 10 years later, they started again. I have had 3 in two weeks. Interestingly enough, I had a couple this summer (hadn't been on the pill in years). I started the pill (Yaz) this Jan. and now the migraines have really increased in frequency. I stopped the pill last night to see if they at least decrease in frequency. Does any research support an increase/onset of migraines with taking the pill?
Avatar f tn Two months later I had a laparoscopy and a DNC done, after that I have been on Lupron than got put on Depo-Provera birth control shots indefinitely, because the condition was so bad. So as of last March I have not had a period and have not ovulated that way I do not have severe pain and more scarring. Than starting this January I started had crippling severe back pain, so I made an appt. with an Orthopedic doctor. The very first appt.
Avatar n tn If an infection is ruled out, a gynecologist can perform a laparoscopy or alternatively, attempt a trial of medical treatment with birth control pills, injection of Depo-provera or GnRH agonist for endometriosis. If the pain is resolved with medical treatment and infection was ruled out then it is most likely endometriosis and this is now an acceptable approach to treating endometriosis.
Avatar f tn It sounds to me like some of the people who are writing may be confusing the Mirena with Depo Provera--those are definitely side effects of the Depo shot. In fact, the copper IUD has been a bigger cause of problems than the Mirena in my clientelle. It tends to make period cramping worse, And the bleeding heavier! Women who like it, really swear by it though. The Mirena, in my experience usually lightens the flow tremendously--or even stops the bleeding altogether.
Avatar f tn I am also on depo provera, and am going to stop taking that. I dont have anything to tell you that is helpful except i share your confusion and concern and I wish you luck. Since my diagnosis is basically a GUESS ( I was negative on all screens too), I am hoping i dont really have that disease , but that the progestone in the depo shot is what is causing this. Good luck...

2026160 tn?1328928087 Do not use fabric softeners and/or fabric softener sheets in the dryer, especially on pillowcases as they cause a waxy residue that can clog pores on acne-prone individuals. Avoid low-estrogen birth control pills, Norplant, Provera, and Depo-Provera. Also progesterone hormone replacement Premarin can be problematic. If you have polycystic ovaries, they will cause hormonal changes and breakout. See our blog post about birth control pills for more information.
1124023 tn?1261542848 I have PCOS too and was on depo provera injections for 2 years but then came off about 2 years ago too. Was regular up until the day before my wedding 16 Oct, then didn't have a period in Nov but came on 01 Dec (day 47!). Looking like a normal period, so think it may have been my body adjusting to the new experiences of being married and the stress that it caused too, although it was around the right time for me in October and the December one (just skipped one I think).
17568 tn?1424977159 This suggestion might be off the wall, but you could ask the doctors. I used to use a contraceptive called Depo Provera. I had the common side effect (or additional benefit) that I no longer had monthly periods. The birth control is in the form of a shot that you get every three months, which would be bad if you had an adverse reaction to it since you would have to wait three months for it to wear off, but perhaps it is available in another form.
Avatar f tn all forms i.e...the patch,nuva-ring,depo-provera, and just about every pill you can think of. Not only did they not work but they caused the worst side effects and I am not allergic to anything. I have been controlling my diet for some time now watching my carb intake and was on glucophage for a while with no results. I have irregular periods sometimes a year on and a year off and extremely they are usually heavy and painful.
Avatar f tn I know that I have polycystic ovaries and have been on various medication. I came off Depo Provera injections about 2 years ago and was regular up until the day before my wedding (16/10/2009) as I was about to become sexually active for the first time also. The doctor prescribed a pill I'd been on when I was in my teens, although I made mention that these made me sick, at which she told me to hide it in my food! I tried them, but was severely sick, so I came off them.
1460427 tn?1285777115 I suffer a slow forming anaphylaxis and most of my reactions are internalized effecting my organs and muscles. When I was tested for this condition with depo provera, my reaction was positive but showed no external symptoms, I developed giant painful satellite lesions under my skin that lasted for several days. For years.
Avatar m tn But I will say that it is best not to make major decisions during a state of depression. The drug given to sexual offenders is called Depo-Provera. It is actually a birth-control drug that decreases the amount of testosterone in the body. Apparently the reduction in libido disappears when the drug is stopped, so you shouldn't have any permanent damage from it. You will have to speak with your doctor about the possibility of using this medication.
Avatar n tn (I'm noting other symptoms,etc which may/may not be related-just in case.)I'm a 46-yr old female,in good health,&have never experienced anything like this.Any previous allergies have only been mild,hayfever-type(no skin problems involved).I have not recently changed detergent,soap,perfumes,wearing newly-bought undergarments,etc,etc-all things that one first thinks of re: contact dermatitis,although worst affected areas(pelvis,both breasts& buttock)would indicate that. Approx.
Avatar n tn i know it is during menstrul cycle but does that mean that the rest of the month we are safe. We are using depo provera but not liking all the irregular bleeding. i have heard that ovulation occurs definately during her period. How many days should we not have intercourse before menstration and after? Help Dear Steve: As you have learned, ovulation does NOT occur during menstrual flow. Rather, it occurs about two weeks before the onset of menstrual flow.
Avatar n tn Assuming the cycle is 28 days in length (day number 1 is the first day of menstrual bleeding) and ovulation occurs on day 14, then cycle days 11, 12, 13, 14, and perhaps 15 are the fertile days. Depo-Provera is a drug: it is a close cousin of progesterone, the hormone produced after ovulation in the menstrual cycle. It is used as a contraceptive. Side effects include absent periods, irregular bleeding, weight gain over years, modd swings.
Avatar n tn I've had multiple ultrasounds, again with nothing showing. Doc put me on Depo-Provera, thinking this would stop my periods altogether and solve the issue. It worked for about a year, but now, I've been bleeding since last September (2008) almost non-stop. And i'm still sick with it - sick to my stomach, that is. Now, I have to come up with a different plan, because i certainly cannot continue living like this!
Avatar n tn release,,,so when he did the exploratroy surgery/he could not take all of it out as I had not signed the release from..my kids were 10 and 14//and i was divorced I am on Depo Provera to this day cos I never went bacvk and had the hysterectomy I needed then...Depo is bad for ur bones so I know this has not helped my spine be sure u get the right DR for what u need..may have to try a few//the first one is not always the best one..,.

Avatar f tn Went to a Reumatologist (have been checked for all soft tissue diseases) and auto immune disorders. In April I receive Depo provera shot, seems that is when the Migrains may have started, and aslo the throat swelling. on 4/27/2008 went to the hospital for sever migrain and was given Tramadol, Benadryl and Compazine (seemed to help a little, just wanted to go home.
1395422 tn?1308019851 You REALLY need to go see your GYN for this it could be a couple different things and once your doctor pinpoints what the cause is they will be able to better treat your problem specifically for example if it's endometriosis you could be treated with the Depo Provera Shot if that is indeed what you have and IF that is how the dr chooses to treat it.
Avatar n tn As far as when the test in being done in relationhip to my menstrual cycle I haven't actually been keeping track of that. Although, during a couple of the tests, I was on depo provera and was not have monthly periods due to this form of birth control. I wanted to respond as to why I was being tested so much. I have been tested this many times due to my personal preference.
Avatar f tn Hi, I appologize in advance for such a long post. About two weeks ago, I began to have some pain in my eyes. It feels rather achey, not stabbing or gritty. Not more than two years ago, I was perscribed glasses for distance and was told that I have a slight astigmatism. I found this rather confusing, as having had eye exams in my life before, I always had fine vision, so why would I suddenly need glasses at age 22?
Avatar f tn After the DNC was performed he put me on an oral contraceptive and told me that my periods should be regulated. They weren't - continuous bleeding. He then put me on the Depo-provera shot which made my period subside completely. Sooo, six months ago I told him I would like to try the pill again as the shot had made me gain some weight and I don't think it is natural to NEVER have a period. So, I have had no issues until this point with the pill.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed some time ago and since then I have been on a series of birth control; all forms i.e...the patch,nuva-ring,depo-provera, and just about every pill you can think of. Not only did they not work but they caused the worst side effects and I am not allergic to anything. I have been controlling my diet for some time now watching my carb intake and was on glucophage for a while with no results.
