depo-provera

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 took Depo Provera for a year, but decided to switch because I would have either no period or extremely long periods and they were highly unpredictable. I switched to Lo/Ovral prior to when I would have estimated when my period started. I have been taking the reminder pills for 4 days, and I've yet to have a period. Could this be due to the Depo?
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 f tn @nessa The copper iud is hormone free, the depo provera shot is progestin only, as is the mini pill. Those are all good options. Iud is long term, depo is every twelve weeks, pill is daily.
Avatar n tn You may want to look into the birthcontrol shots. Depo provera. You get one every three months, so you just have to remember that doctors appointment. Missing 2-3 pill a month you may as well be taking all sugar pills because you are not covered. If you tie taking your pill to an activity, eat breakfast, take pill, or you can set your cell phone to go off at a certain time each day. But unless you want to be called Momma - wouldn't be having sex without a back-up.
266539 tn?1281405752 When I was your age I was on depo-provera. I had already gotten pg twice (lost both) through condoms and knew my limitations when it came to remembering pills. Depo had only been available in the US for a short while and it seemed perfect for me. It ended up being a wonderful form of BC for me. I didn't develop any of the "bad" side effects, I kept my sex drive, didn't gain weight, didn't have a period for 3.5 years, it was a perfect fit for me.
1160836 tn?1332333769 I don't have PCOS just simply haven't ovulated in 4 months. Last regular AF was November 09. All my other's have been Provera induced. Did clomid 50 mg last cycle and still didn't ovulate. This next cycle doing provera agian and clomid 100 mg. Hopefully I ovulated. Have my fingers crossed. SBD!
Avatar n tn C in May followed by the Metho shot, and then Depo. When my Depo wore off, I just spotted for 3 weeks straight then last moth nothing at all. I woke up this morning thinking I was in a crime scene. The pain, is worse than anything I have ever been through.I know I cant go to work like this. I am just wondering if I am the only one having to bleach my mattress after this situation?
280700 tn?1210287416 I also took clomid 50mg last month and never ovulated, so the cycle was a bust and the doctor prescribed Provera again casue it could be some time before i get my period. He upped my dosage to 100mg and i'm on day 3 today of clomind. I'm basically taking clomid cd 2-6 as the specialist wanted and then he will start monitoring me on CD 9. I'm also getting IUI done so hopefully tis would help but if I don't ovulate then this cycle would be a bust also. I'm crossing my fingers as well.
298579 tn?1192250448 The only thing I have seen that helps the pain is an herbal wrap that you heat up(you can get them @ walmart), and I lay that on my stomach. I have been on the depo shot for four years, I have asked if this is a contributing factor and have been told no. I have no kids. I hope someone comes up with an explanation, because I am too young to be giving up on my sex life!
Avatar n tn She said she took SEVERAL HPT and 2 blood ALL NEGATIVE. Finally when her Doc gave her a RX for provera to start her period she was tested one more time 12/9 almost a month later she FINALLY GOT a positive blood test. Her Docs theory is she just ovulated VERY late in her cycle that month!!! How crazy is that!!? It took almost a WHOLE month for her to show positive for pregnant. I mean you are alittle further than a month though. Have you got an ultrasound?
1294995 tn?1330666336 I'm 4 days past provera and nothing yet. I'm getting alittle worried because I've been on provera like 6 times and almost always like clock work I get it two days after stopping it. I'll wait until it's been 7 days past then I'll call my dr. Didn't realize I could wish so much for AF :-) Well I have enjoyed this day off. Back to work tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend :-) SSBD!!!!
