Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera weight limit

depo-provera

Avatar f tn Yes, you can loose Depo Provera Weight and get your looks back. The reason you gained the weight is the Depo. Please know it is not your fault. Depo causes insulin resistance, Metabolic syndrome (syndrome X) and ovarian cysts in some women. You were smart to discontinue it. Please Google insulin resistance. You can drop these pounds using low carb and zero carb diets. It won't take long.
Avatar n tn I hope that all of you are loosing weight now. It takes a lot of time for Depo Provera to get out of your system. I went from size 4 to size 14 in Depo, and I am now using Mirena instead and use a zero carb diet and lost 30 lbs so far. My periods are still not normal. I look a lot better than when when I was on Depo. It literally put me in a constant "pregnant" state for years and made me hold on to fat and water, which is being released now.
Avatar n tn all the weight gain from depo has depo in it!!! do your best to lose any weight gained on it and drink lots of water. feel free to e-mail me and i can answer any questions you might have. love and hugs....
Avatar n tn I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
Avatar n tn I finnally see a doctor on monday, the doctor will be putting me on most likely phentermine and i will be taking the hcg shot, i am kind of worried about the shot because i take the depo provera birth control shot, people take hcg to ovulate and get pregnant i was just wondering if this might be something to worry about, i dont have my monthly cycle and dont really want it back, if someone might be in the same situation as i am or might know the answer im looking for please let me know.
Avatar n tn I have had endo for over ten years now and after a few surgeries and depo provera i finally put my foot down along with my husband and said Enough is enough, i couldnt live like that any longer! so i started Lucrin in Jan and i've got my last injection in a few days time. I was terrified of going on it after reading side effects but...the hot flushes, night sweats, headaches and feeling pregnant lol are nothing compared to how much pain i was in before!
Avatar f tn The reason I am telling you this is because I got back on the depo and am starting to loose weight. you might want to ask you gyn if the depo might help you. Just a thought. I wish you well. Even if you don't loose weight exersise is SO good for you so keep it up.
Avatar n tn and further more the very next morning i swear....i have gained more weight! i am literally gaining weight EVERY DAY.
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.
293845 tn?1228001130 I go by the way my clothes fit. When I had my first baby (I was 18), I took the depo provera shot for b/c afterwards. Well, within 2 months I had gained 20 pounds. Now, I'm only 5'2", so that is a lot of weight to gain and be short. I was so proud of myself too because I had almost lost all of my baby weight prior to taking that shot. I also had a mean husband, so that didn't help. He knew I was insecure about this and he played that.
Avatar n tn I speak from experience when I say it is possible for WB to influence your cycle. Everything was fine for me on WB until I upped my dose - then I had mood swings and missed periods. After 3 months without a period, they found my prolactin (hormone that deals in lactation and suppression of periods amongst other things) levels were twice the far-end-of-normal limit.
Avatar n tn Hey, well i was in the same situation until last month which was the 1st time i had my period from April, i was perscribed Provera, to bring it on and it did, but i'm trying to have a baby, My gyno has perscribed me clomiphine to stimulate the ovaries, all i know is after taking the provera i had really bad peroid pain and it came back with a vengence, I have a really good gyno and if u are trying to concieve, i've been through a lot of pelvic ultrasounds (internal) cause it's the best way to se

NOW I CANT GET IT OFF FOR ANYTHING. IT HAS TAKEN A TOLL ON MY LIFE. IM SO DEPRESSED AND I DREAM ABOUT LOSING WEIGHT. CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHERE TO GET THE B12 SHOT IN NORFOLK,VA OR SOMEWHERE AROUND THERE.
Avatar n tn of course ! unless you the 2 male things we have down there..stop it..HCG does not in anyway help with weight loss..need proof...just ask...
Avatar n tn This compares with 10 for the normal IUCD, 20 for the Pill and 10-15 for the injection (Depo Provera). This is comparable to the effectiveness of sterilisation. Mirena acts as a contraceptive in two ways: it makes the mucus at the neck of the womb (the cervix) much thicker, preventing sperm from getting through and it also makes the lining of the womb extremely thin, stopping implantation. In some women it prevents egg release (ovulation). A.
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 f tn Hey, does anyone here have any advice that can help? I'm 26, was on depo-provera for 7+ years, and haven't had a period since I started. My husband and I were married july 30 2010, and my last depo injection was mid july 2010. I was due for another one in October but we decided to come off it to see what happens. We have never had protected sex, but I'm noticing weird symptoms.
Avatar n tn the females that gain 30 pounds and blaim it on the pill are probably eatting a little much. I have heard about weight gain from the depo shot though. some females find it easier to get pregnant while on the pill, the purposly miss three pills and there you go.
298579 tn?1192250448 1 Are you underweight, normal weight, overweight or obese?

Avatar n tn He told me to go home and lose weight. (Thanks alot, doc. I know weight is a real issue, but I wish he would've addressed other things that he wouldn't consider.) After that, we didn't have coverage and very low income at the time. Another round of doctor's visits and lab tests was impossible. Is there any investigation or research into the pill and it's affects on the thyroid and hormones? (I wonder how much research a pharm. company would do on it's own products.
Avatar f tn Even with a tapon to control the discarg, I tend to overflow and gush a little. I suspect, some of this is just extra fluid build up / water weight being released from bloating. During my period, I tend to urinate alot, as my body purges the extra water weight. I usually gain and loose around 5 pounds each time my period comes and goes, due to the bloating. I am not a doctor, but I figure that this discharge is one of the many ways my body sheds the water it retained.
Avatar n tn Well, I took birthcontrol during the three day limit before it ran out. Does anyone know the chances I have now to still get pregnant?
Avatar f tn *I do still have sex, I just limit how many times and such. I listen to my body. I don’t think this health issue is contagious, just annoying. I’ve been with my guy for a year and he’s A-OK. ; ) I use the regular kind of KY to help things out-just in case- which has been helpful. Anyways, do what you feel. I try not to stress about this because I still want a sex life. My boyfriend is very patient and understanding which HELPS A LOT.
Avatar n tn That way if it comes back as negative you will have your definite answer and your docs can put you on provera to bring about your period. My sister however never tested positive until 2 weeks past her missed AF. She gave birth to 4 healthy girls. So it is very poss to have neg tests and still be pregnant.
Avatar n tn i'm a female and at the time i was fit, and the problems have not gotten worse with weight gain, they get worse with anxiety. i had them for 2 weeks straight- constant all day and night. i'd been to doctors and emergency rooms for it before and been treated like a hypochondriac and told i was fine.
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!!!!
Avatar n tn Usually I don't start until I get a prescription of Provera for the doc. Last time I went 2 and 1/2 months before I started again by provera. so being late is a usual thing for me...I'm so confused, but I don't want to get my hopes up like I do every other month...I guess I should just get an appt. with the doc to be sure...I'll keep you updated!
Avatar n tn My breast are sore, I have gained a ton of weight, I crave sweets, I go to the restroom every 5 to 10 minutes...What do you think?
162948 tn?1205256292 but the cause of removel was I've had other health problems that docs couldn't find out whats causing dizzness, legs swealling up, bad acne, excess weight gain and loss. 5 in a day to week 25 lbs.. getting a secon opion on uturin pain she said I had cysit rupture, a bit odd between 3 ob visits had several pregnacy tests done.
Avatar n tn I HAVE THE URGE TO BE SEXUALLY ACTIVE WITH ALL OF THE MEN I DATE, I LIKE BEING DOMINANT AND CONTROLING.
