Avatar m tn Hi! I recently got the Depo Provera shot a couple weeks ago, and it is was within the 5-7 days before my period of which was supposed to be on the 23rd of last month.. And I still haven't gotten my period, I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative, I'm just really worried maybe the test was wrong, or is it normal to have a really late period after having your first shot?
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 n tn I been off depo for couple months, still haven't got a regular period, then I went to then I went to the hospital and they said I have pcos..is that because I was on depo for soo long (3 yrs). and will my period come back regular?

Avatar f tn I was suppose to start my period Saturday however I went in on friday and got the Depo shot. This was the first shot I have ever received. I have yet to start my period. I have always ahd my period before this like clock work so I'm a little confused. I didn't think to ask the nurse if it would have any effect on my periods. Should I be concerned or alarmed because of this?
Avatar f tn So I got put on depo provera friday and my period had came on the wednesday night before that friday. Well I had sex that saturday after being on the shot for 24hr and my bf *** inside of me could I be pregnant or no?
Avatar f tn I been on depo since 2008 and never had a period since I just now been in.a relationship ny bf ejaculated inside me . My question.really is isn't it hard to.become pregnant while taking the depo.
Avatar n tn And it took me four months after my missed shot to get get a period. Which was yesterday. So I'm hoping I can now ovulate since a period is a sign that ovulation had occurred and I just didn't get pregnant when it did. I didnt do anything special to bring it on. Unfortunately I just waited and waited until it came. Good luck to you and baby dust!
Avatar n tn I went through two rounds of Depo. One in Feb of 2007 and the one after that. I got a period in May of this year. I stopped until about September and I am slowly getting back to being regular. I am not quite there yet. It does take a while for some women and others back right back. If you would like to start a cycle, consider asking your doctor about another method of birth control that regulates your cylce (i.e. the pill or nuva ring).

Avatar f tn I had the depo shot 3 times last year-june, sept, & nov. I was very worried about getting my period back but finally i got it in may. give it time. My husband and i have been trying to conceieve since nov but no luck. I have read lots of stories about pregnany taking 1-3 years after your last shot (even thogh i was told 6-12 months) I have been hoping that now that i finally got my period back that it is a sign that i am ready. Good luck to you!
Avatar n tn You can get irregular bleeding when you first start the Depo-Provera, but if you have never had this heavy bleeding before you should consult your doctor as soon as possible. They can check some hormones and examine you to make sure everything is OK.
Avatar n tn I have been on Depo Provera for 13 years. I have not had a period in probably 10 years or longer. I got the flu and started taking flu medicine and two days later all of the sudden - a period. I am freaking out. What would cause a sudden period after such a long absence? I want it to go away NOW. Did the flu medicine kill my depo shot?
Avatar n tn No matter how long you are on it, it can take 12-18 months to fully get depo provera out of your system. I had a hard time after depo, my body started going through withdrawls of the drug and I had a cyst on my ovary from depo which was causing me not to ovulate.

4069776 tn?1349521984 Hello, I was on depo provera for 9 years, I had my last shot in Jan 2012 and was suppose to come get my next shot April 2012, My doctor informed me that it would be fine for me to just stop taking it because I did so well while I was on it and that I should be fine coming off of it, well I didnt. I had horrible side effects from July and they are still happening now, I have had every test done (ultrasounds, blood test, endoscopes, ect.) and everything came back normal.
Avatar n tn i was on the minipill for two years i am not getting my period now doctor wants to put me on depo provera she claims after awhile the affectiveness of the minpill wears off and depo would be best for me being that it is also a progesteron only contraceptive and will continue not getting my period am afraid because of all the bad things i hear about it any suggetions?
Avatar n tn and then i got back on the depo and i stop my period again and havent had one evey since when i first started the depo i spotted like 1 or 2 times but it was like a brownish like color.
Avatar n tn I've never taken Depo-Provera but I've heard alot about how it can 'mess up' your cycle. Every one reacts different to it. It can help you but also make your cycles worse. I'm sorry I can't help you much here. But overall, I don't like Depo because of all the things I've heard about it. I've heard more disadvantages then advantages to using it. If you continue to have these problems w/ it, then I suggest you change your contraceptive to something else.
