Avatar n tn Depo Provera is costing me my relationship with my husband. After 7 years married (today) he confessed to me to be emotionally drained... wow... that's because we never have sex. And when we do it feels to me like a job. I don't enjoy it, I want it to be over fast. I definitely NOT GETTING my next shot. I guess I'll go back to the pill =/ Being a woman is a wonderful thing, but chemical birth control *****. Good luck to the ones that keep trying.
Avatar f tn I would like someones opinion if their is a way to counteract these side effects or if I should just switch? I just really like the depo because so is very reliable for my-self. Please I would love some opinions.
Avatar f tn i have tried everything, from lupron, to laparoscopies, to yaz, to smoking marijuana - currently i am on Depo Provera and have been for the past year and a half. I am noticing a lot of side affects from this as time goes on, and unfortunately for me this has been the only thing that even remotely helps, and i still have a lot of pain.
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 Despite what docs reassure you, please READ THE SIDE EFFECTS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS OF DEPO PROVERA ON THEIR SITE!! Here are some things you may not have been told: * antibiotics DO decrease the effect of any birth control, whether it is oral, topical, or by injection. * bleeding can and does occur during pregnancy, and esp.
Avatar f tn I had only taken one depo provera shot and was due to have my second one between June 30 and July 13, I didn't take the second one. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex July 2nd-5th every day. Is it possible that I'm pregnant? I have had slight bleeding almost every day since but it recently stopped, it was just like spotting, not a flow, only a tinge of color when wiping. I am having many symptoms of pregnancy (nausea, extreme fatigue, headaches, bleeding gums, etc).
Avatar n tn So far I have not started to spot and have been feeling nauseous, is nausea a common side affect of stopping the depo or could it be something else?
4069776 tn?1349521984 I am wondering if any one else is going through Depo Provera withdrawals? I was on it for 9 years and recently me and my husband decided to go off of it since we knew that this form of birth control can take up to 18 months if you are ttc. i was due for my shot in April and when the time came I went to my doctor to discuss getting off of it and the possible side effect or problems that I might encounter. He basically assured me that nothing will happen because I did so well while I was on it.
Avatar n tn Well, here goes nothing. I have been on depo provera for over 8 years. I have signed up for a forum for people who are trying to concieve after depo and have had some great support. I have been reading alot your posts and replied to a few. I am told that it could take as long as 2 years before I can get pregnant. I don't think I have ovulated yet. Last shot was August 4, 2006. Usually you take the shots every 3 months since it is possible to get pg if it is taken too late.
Avatar m tn Since she has recently started with the depo shots, it may take side effects of depo shot to subside within 3 months. But if she is bleeding continuously then it may cause anemia for which I suggest you to consult her gynecologist. She may prescribe medicines like hormonal contracpetives and tranexemic acid to stop bleeding. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn I am 18 years old and I have recieved one Depo shot which was in may of 07 towards the the middle so the shot was up in aug of 07. I experienced a lot of the listed side effects like spotting which happened for about a month after i got the shot, no period the whole three months and non still, mood swings for about two weeks when i first got the shot. I had unprotected sex the whole time, before and during and only a few times after it was up.
Avatar m tn Not sure if this helps, but most of these are side effects of Depo, there isn't anything wrong with you. These should subside as your body adjusts to the Depo. If these issue persist, I'd return to the doctor.
Avatar n tn The most important thing to remember about Depo, is that you need to take a calcium supplement while on it. The side effects from Depo are the same side affects you will experience from any birth control. Just make an informed decision.
202436 tn?1326477933 I wasn't planning on using any birth control after I had Lily, we were just gonna go with natural family planning. Well at my doc appt today he suggested the depo provera shot may help with milk production since I'm having an issue with it due to anemia. I went ahead and got the shot becuase I figured it was worth trying to see if it WILL help AND with the anemia problems right now it's probably best that I elminate as much risk of pregnancy as possible for awhile.
Avatar n tn happyflower i feel your pain i had one baby and i went on depo............ my doctor failed to tell me about the side effects.............i took one shot last august and.... i haven't seen a period till this day............. now i'm married and i want another baby and it seems impossible.........i have gained over 50lbs and i have no sex drive.. what am i supposed to do know??
Avatar n tn I am not very familiar with Provera, but are your symptoms expected side effects with the med? Did your physician explain any of this prior to you starting the Provera? Also did you have a blood HCG level drawn? If the symptoms do not go away, I would contact the physician again and express my concerns. Maybe you should try a HPT, in the meantime.
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 n tn Has anyone experienced any bad side effects from the hcg shots? I am administering them myself and just want to know what to look out for.
Avatar n tn I just went off the depo shot a few weeks ago because I had serious side effects! I didn't realize it until I went to different doctors trying to find out what was wrong with me. Every test I got back was fine which was frustrating because I knew something wasn't right in my body. I had severe stomach problems that would brought me to the emergency room one night. I have a perfectly healthy stomach so it was strange that I kept getting sick.
Avatar n tn days when I can barely function and have also experienced symptoms of hypoglycemia and panic attacks and or crying jags for no reason. I have been reading a lot about the Depo side effects some women have had and they mirror mine. I've had a thyroid test and it was fine, so I don't think that I'm diabetic. I have been trying to eat well and clense with milk thistle to try to hasten the exit of the Depo.
Avatar f tn I've been reading alot of different side effects from different people on the depo provera shot.. some that go from hair loss to joint pain,mood swings, water retention, WEIGHT GAIN ..and the list goes on and on.
Avatar f tn I assure you that there is no need to panic. Heavy and prolonged bleeding are common side effects of starting Depo shots and usually it takes 3 months for such menstrual irregularities to settle down.Depo shots are to be given every three months, so for the first shot this kind of menstrual irregularity can occur.
Avatar n tn Well I got my period immediately after the first pack, went and saw the main doctor and was told that the resident was uninformed about the side effects of Depo, and they were foolish to tell me that I had PCOS. It ABSOLUTELY was an effect of Depo. I've been regular ever since! Like I said, you should be fine. If it takes you a little longer than you were hoping to get back to normal don't freak out.
Avatar n tn I recently had an Impanon removed after two years of side effects - excessive weight gain, depression, almost non-stop bleeding, no libido etc. When these symptoms didn't clear entirely after removal I was investigated further and am now being treated for Hashimotos. I'm slowly feeling much better. I'm wondering now if thyroid issues maybe the real reason some women have so many side effects from Implanon?
Avatar f tn Hi there, Every birth control method has few side effects. Depo vera is injected every 12 weeks while the contraceptive has the power to prevent conception up to 14 weeks, the injections are usually given every 12 weeks to ensure that there is no gap in the effectiveness of the birth control between shots. If such a schedule is maintained, pregnancy while on Depo-Provera is extremely rare .
5108300 tn?1371830920 Hello, What you may be having are side effects of the depo shots. If you stop getting Depo-Provera injections, your period usually returns within 3 to 10 months but sometimes it may take 12-18 mths. Hence chances of pregnancy especially when there is no history of intercourse are remote. You should talk to your doctor and shift to alternate form of birth control. If the symptoms persist then you should get it evaluated from a gynecologist.
Avatar n tn the first week i did not experience very bad side effects the usual nausea headache stuff. then the second week very bad moodiness, depression, anxiety. friday night i was rushed to the ER due to a severe panic attack. i thought i was going to die. i have never had anything so awful happen to me. now that i have read others comments everything is adding up. i was suffering severe side effects due to Yaz. the ER dr. told me to keep taking but i will never put Yaz in my system again.
Avatar n tn The symptoms you're feeling are also side effects of the depo so they don't tell much of anything. Take a test with first morning urine. At this point it will be accurate.
Avatar n tn Well, in February 2006, after having a Laparoscopy and a discussion with the Gynaecologist I went for DEPO. WOW… I got the side effects, gain weight, swing moods, I even forgotten the rucksack on a train station when on holiday in Fort William…cool…I was crying from nothing, shooting to my husband for nothing, having periods now and then, spots, bleeding,etc, etc.
