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.

Avatar n tn How effective is the depo provera birth control shot? ( Is it 'ok' to do it without a condom every once in a while, WITHOUT him going inside me?
Avatar n tn in the springtime, I was leaving home and I recieved my first Depo shot from the family doctor. (She explained to me depo was short term; i.e. two years). (Planned parenthood later explained at age 19 that Depo is safe for more than 2 years, "just take calcium/ d suppliments") That summer I started going to Planned Parenthood. I do not remember exactly when but I am sure it was June or July (still age 17) when this happened to me.
Avatar n tn The docotors believe I may have a progesterone problem due to Depo Provera. I was on Depo for 6 years and went off the shot in Sept. Does anyone know if the effects of this shot can linger and cause lower progesterone levels?
Avatar n tn I am in a group where all the women are trying to conceive after the depo provera. Many have been trying to conceive for years, and no luck. And it seems like those who do conceive have miscarriages soon after. Its like 80% of the women who get pg have a miscarriage. Is this linked to the depo? Age? Im 22 and am trying to conceive #2. (my son is 6 now) I am so scared that it might happen to me.
Avatar n tn I was given a shot of depo-provera yesterday...and when I asked about side affects all I was told was nausea, headache, and dizziness. After reading quite a few articles online, it seems there are a lot more serious side affects than I was led to believe. I've been having lots of chest pain and shortness of breath, but the doctor doesn't seem to think it's related to the shot.
988051 tn?1249023942 I've been on the Depo Provera shot for about 3 months now. I know that it stops the ovaries from releasing eggs and that it also thickens the uterine lining. Since I have been on the Depo Provera shot, I have not had a period. I know that this can be the case for many. My question is whether or not the lining of the uterus is still shed, even if I do not have a period. I have had some cramps today and have just discovered a brownish discharge. It's more like spotting.
Avatar n tn I was on Depo-Provera for about 5 years. I stopped when I got a tubaligation. That was 2 years ago. Here's what happened to a otherwise healthy female who never had sexual health issues: fibroadenomas of the breasts, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endocervical thickening and cervical cysts. Also osteoarthritis in both knees along with grade 4 chrondomalacia in both knees, and osteoarthritis of the lumbar spine. All this in two years.
Avatar n tn Well, had the first Depo-Provera shot today. Hopefully my body adjusts alright and this helps with keeping the endo at bay. Has anyone used the Depo for endometriosis? What kind of experiences did you have? I'm kinda curious, but also thinking that maybe I jumped into the waters before seeing if there were sharks. :) (To reiterate, I was given three choices: oral BC, Depo, or Lupron. Opted against the Lupron for the vast scary side effects.

Avatar f tn I wonder what the difference between the two depo shots are and I wonder why my gyno recommended the other depo shot if the depo-subq provera 104 shot is specific for endo ?
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 n tn I have been on depo for 11 years. I would be due for my next shot on 9/27 but my Doctor has advised that I stop having it. She has been treating me for migraines and depression with Imitrex (when needed) and a daily dosage of Prozac of 10mg. The Imitrex thankfully, works, and the migraines have also been lessened by the Prozac.
Avatar n tn Hi my name is Marie and i was on depo provera in May 07 and i had my periods in december. It was regular and my last period was in March 08. Since then i never got my periods again. Im confused and lost. Sometimes i take pregnancy tests and they all come out negative. So i really dont know what's the cause. I really need some help and answers!

1394877 tn?1280268960 Welcome to the side effects of Depo Provera! :) It takes A LOT of time to get used to the drug and yes, all that you're experiencing with the mood swings, lower abdominal pains, etc. are just normal side effects. Damaging to someone is a possibility. Did the doctor explain to you the side effects and what happens to your bones the longer you're on the stuff? I was on it for 3 years and had... somewhat problems at the end. Sometimes the side effects are easily to control while other times...
Avatar n tn My friend was given a depo provera shot during time of conception. She was given one three months later and given one again three months later. So that was three shots. She was always given the urine test first. The third time they called her back after giving the urine test and shot and told her she needed to do the urine test again. Then they told her she was pregnant.
Avatar f tn You have to understand that not only do I have Endo, but because of the consistent mis-diagnoses, and other birth controls to temporarily stop the bleeding, the uterus continues to create the lining that is causing me pain, that lining never stops shedding for me, when on Depo provera I bled right through that, yet it was brown blood, old blood. Same thing with the nexplanon, all brown blood. So along with the pain, I also bleed 24/7.
Avatar f tn and type in depo provera .
Avatar f tn Future Fertility -- Women who want to become pregnant may stop using Depo Provera at any time. For some women, fertility returns immediately. For others, it may take 6-18 months or longer for the body's hormone cycle to go back to normal. ...
Avatar n tn of course some people are different. I was on two shots of Depo and then went on BCP because the Depo made me bleed 3 months straight almost. Nov 04 I started BCP and then in Aug 05 I decided to stop because my husband and I were TTC. I have not had a period since Aug, except twice and that was with the help of Provera. Month after month gets frustrating. Best of Luck to you!!
438443 tn?1241999285 So, a woman has nothing to fear if she was to mistakenly receive Depo Provera early in a pregnancy. Best regards, Dr.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed 10 10mg pills for ten days to stop this constant flow I've had for the last 5 months due to the depo shot. I've been on the provera for 6 days. The bleeding got really light to where I could go with out tampons or pads for two days straight. But now I have sore breast,cramps,bloated,& the earge to poop. Can this be a normal period coming on? Should I continue the pills?
Avatar n tn I've been taking monthly pregnancy tests just to be sure, and I'm definitely not pregnant. I read on a depo website that it takes the "average" woman 3-6 months to get it back.
Avatar n tn Hello, to everyone reading this. I have taken two depo shots that where not back to back and my last one has wore off. This may sound like tmi but I was wondering if anyone has went through this. I have had discharge for the past 4 days, I was wondering if my period was close. My husband and I are ttc.
Avatar f tn 3 days after my menstration. I went to my ob-gyn to have my first depo provera shot. But 4hours after i have sex with my husband. Could i get pegnant?
Avatar n tn Now that I re-read your question, I am thinking that you mean Depo Provera, for birth control? Either ask your doctor or call their 800 number or look on their website for FAQ's.
