Avatar f tn I started receiving the Depo-Provera shot 6 weeks after I gave birth to my son in 2000. I was on the shot for 9 months and gained 118 lbs. My eating habits and excersise habits never changed and I continued to put on the weight. My doctor need numerous tests to see if there was an underlining problem he wasn't aware of, but there wasn't. 6 years later I have lost 81 lbs. - it hasn't been easy.
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar n tn i have noticed this problem for at least a couple of years and initially my doctor thought it was because i was in depo provera and had abnormal bleeding all the time. i have been on the pill for over 7 months and my periods are back to normal except after this occurrence following orgasm. in april i had an abnormal pap smear that indicated i had HGSIL (high-grade intraepithelial lesions) of the cervix.
Avatar n tn The only drug that I am aware of that that actually has this effect is Depo-provera, a drug used to inhibit fertility in women. Interestingly, there are many many documented side-effects of Depo-provera (just take a look at their web-site for possible complcations), yet it is approved by the FDA. As I said, the presence of HCG in the human body is used as an INDICATOR for pregnancy. HCG has been found in EVERY human tissue, also in males and non pregnant females. 2.
Avatar n tn Recently I had sex with a guy friend and we had rough sex! We did in fact use protection but i have a short cut/tear on the space between my anus and my vagina (the perineum). How does rough sex cause these things? we had sex a few days ago and it was kinda sore yesterday but today i took a shower and put vaseline on it and it feels alot better (for those who are wondering what to do).
363243 tn?1331037450 Ilive in Barbados and was diagnosed last year with PCOS. I found that since I started taking natural supplements that the excessive hair on my chin has been drastically reduced. I still have to pluck and shave but not as much hair as before. There is a lot of useful information in health food shops and books that helped me to control the damage done to my skin by waxing, plucking and shaving. I was also feeling like a freak because of having to constantly remove hair.
298579 tn?1192250448 This is quite odd but I experience an uncomfortable cramping in my lower abdomen after I have an orgasm or after a particularly intense bowel movement. It's somewhat painful but definitely more on the uncomfortable side. Occasionally I will also feel the cramping when I get sexually excited. It doesn't last for too long, a few minutes at most but I was curious if anyone else had experienced something like this. Thank you for your feedback.
Avatar n tn Depo Provera or Androcur will take your drive away, but be careful, the effects of chemical castration can be bad, depression, mood swings, heat flashes, etc. Women can have low estrogen too and i find its a better solution to bring the low partner up than to shut the high partner down...
Avatar n tn Although I had been using them for a while, they soon started to sting and burn the area around my eyes whenever I used them. The use of any eye make-up other than mascara would result in a stinging sensation, which varied in terms of severity. Moisturiser and even baby-lotion would burn my skin. Since then however, I have been using some Garnier make-up wipes, made for sensitive skin and the problem seemed to get a bit better, although eyeshadow was still strictly off-limits.

Avatar f tn They are keeping an eye on it and i need to get another cat scan in 2 months time to see if it gets larger in size, as of now it is in the normal variance range. They dont' seem to think it could result in the pain i am having though and have classified it as a red herring. This leaves me with the pain that I've always had and now a new problem to worry about. I need to find out what this is. If anyone thinks they know please help!!!
