depo-provera

Avatar n tn I just started taking the depo provera shot in august. I never had any problems with high blood pressure even through 2 pregnancies now all of a sudden in december my blood pressure has increase, sometimes 150/120.. could this be caused by the shot..I know increase bp is one of the side effects but my doctor keeps saying no.
Avatar n tn I am 28 years old and have been on Depo-Provera for about 6 years. I entirely stopped having periods about 5 years ago, but just last evening, I had some light spotting, and it has continued on to today. If it continues tomorrow, I plan on calling/seeing my doctor, but in the meantime, can you give me insight on what may be causing this?
Avatar n tn Massive doses of birth control pills (which we don't want, because of all the side effects), or to take Provera, which is a hormone. We chose the Provera. Last night I took the last pill... I was told to take it for 5 days and then I should start my period again. She said if this period lasts longer than 2 weeks to come back. I haven't started up again yet, but it hasn't even been 24 hours since my last dose. So hopefully this turns out well.
Avatar f tn I've switched to the pill now but just started but after I had my son i wanted to try Depo-provera I got the shot until my son was six months old and I think it may have had something to do with my mood I started feeling really sad all the time and started getting chest pains and bad headaches I went to the er twice with chest pains and they did a ct scan and ekg and said everything was fine both times and they did a scan on my head to check for tumors and they said everything was fine with that
Avatar n tn It is such a relief to read everyone's testimonials and know that I am not the only one experiencing weird side effects. I read the whole pamphlet that came with my first pack of pills, and I never read anywhere that breast tenderness would be this intense. I have been cramping for the past few days, possibly because I would have been getting my period now if I wasn't on Seasonique.
Avatar n tn So, doctors often don't have much information on this, or they have misinformation on it since Progesterone is often confused with the icky Progestins that are used in birth control pills and Provera and Prempro. And, many doctors think you don't need the hormone if you don't have a uterus.....EEEK!!!! We have receptors for this hormone in our brains, our lungs, etc. It helps alleviate foggy thinking, bone loss, soft tissue joint/muscle pains, etc.
Avatar n tn Well...I was just looking up my symptoms on the web and tada...found this page. I seem to have very similiar symptoms. I get chills/shakes at night and various times through out the day. My heart will beat really hard, especially at night. but various times during the day as well. I am sick to my stomach often. It's worse at night, but right now as I type this during the day I feel very sick and nausiated. I was diagnosed with IBS...but never had symptoms like these before.
Avatar f tn At the chiropractors office I read one of the chicken soup for the soul books that was nothing but testimonials from chiropractic patients. I had always been lead to believe that chiropractors are quacks. Believe me that is not true. If the doctor can't find anything wrong... then go to a good chiropractor (one that will do xrays). If you hurt worse after going to the Chiropractor then find a different Chiropractor. Even Children should go...
