Avatar n tn I was on the depo shot for 7 years. I loved it as it worked for me how it was suppose to. I didn't have any bad side effects as some of my friends had...irregular periods, nausuea, headaches, etc. And I DID know all of the long term effects. I had a great doctor that continually checked on my "side effects"...after 7 years, she said that it was time for me to change up because of the bone density loss issue.
Avatar n tn hi, i came off depo just over 5 months ago after 1 year on it. i would love to start a family but as yet no period has appeared! i know it can take up to a year to return and that you can ovulate without having a period, but i would really love to know - can anyone help or offer advice??
Avatar f tn This too has consumed my life, and I see no end to it all since it took so long to diagnose but the damage was done to my bladder, ureters and bowels. So I am always in pain with those areas. It ***** not going to lie but I was glad I researched and found the best surgeon for my first surgery as I have read and met women with horror stories of having 24+ surgeries because of the lack of skill of surgeons. Its a nightmare and the awareness has to be out there in order for things to change.
Avatar n tn ) BUT, it has vastly altered many aspects of my health and if you were a friend or relative, I would STRONGLY suggest that you NOT take the chance that it does to you what it has done to me and to so many other women, many of whom have experienced side effects after the very first shot.
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 just finished taking provera for the first time, i took 5 tablets for 5 days was just wandering how long it will take me to get my period?? Im worried that i have gone through a severely early menopause... so worried as i have not had my period since December last year and it is now October...
Avatar n tn ) but it doesnt take long ... just a while for it to get back to normal .
Avatar f tn For us it took provera, clomid, misscarriage, hsg test, vitamins, and then TONS of prayer for it to work for us. Seriously, you don't know how many people prayed for this! Hope it works out for you hun! Keep trying and start looking upwards for answers.
432411 tn?1206475709 Depo is a hormone shot for BC. The hormone injected (progesterone) causes the body to stop producing as when you're pregnant. So naturally there is some weight gain and roundness of the stomach that occurs. The body is being told it's pregnant so it tends to do what it needs to provide for the baby that does not exist. As for hypothyroidism I found out 6yrs ago by my doctor who noticed swelling around my throat sent me to do an ultrasound which showed an problem.
Avatar f tn this is my 1 time getting depo and my period has ben on for all most a 10 days...i have look up how long it pose to be on but no help...also i got my shot when i was on my period dose that have any thing to do with it....
Avatar f tn Hashimoto's is an autoimmune disease in which the body sees the thyroid as foreign and produces antibodies to destroy it. Many have us have it for years before we ever know it, though we often have the symptoms long before thyroid blood tests even indicate an issue. The antibody tests you need are Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (TPOab) and Thyroglobulin Antibodies (TgAb). You need both tests, since either one can provide the diagnosis. Some people have one or the other, some have both.
Avatar n tn It's brownish/red and a pretty decent flow. We'll see how long it lasts. If it seems to be a problem I'll comment again, otherwise it usually just lasts about 3-5 days. Overall, I have yet to want to go off the shot and I'm pretty happy with it.
Avatar n tn My doctor recomended the Pill first but after not being able to remember to take it due to my active schedule he told me about Depo Provera. I started it and immediately loved it because i had no period at all after 3 months. Very rarely over the last 7 years i would spot but never enough to do anything about it and just figured it due to stress. It high school i was very active, track, basketball, volleyball anything.
Avatar n tn Usually doctors want to make sure you aren't pregnant before taking it as it has been associated with birth defects, but on the other hand, I've read that the used to prescribe PRovera to women a long time ago to try to reduce chances of miscarriage, but later found out it wasn't nec. good for pregnancy afterall. IF you are charting, YOu won't really be able to tell if you're pregnant now unless you take a pg. test.
1636472 tn?1439186588 We need to keep in mind that this is our first round and it may take a bit for our bodies to get use to the hormone. At least we now have help. I believe that we should keep the internet searching to a minimum and keep connected with people like ourselves through this site for support and to hear others personal experiences. I hope that I have somewhat helped you with my long long response lol. It all comes from my heart. Because my heart goes out to everyone trying to conceive.
Avatar n tn I have something to ask about provera. I was on provera. The doctor said i need to take provera 10mg 2x a day for 5days it was july 21 to 25 i took it and i got my period after two weeks (august 4 to 10)it was a heavy period then after 9 days i got a period again i dont know if its period it was lasting 4days . Is that normal to have a two period in one month, that is my first time to had 2 period in 1month.. ?? My second question, is it okay to take provera again ?
215385 tn?1201806501 do you know how long it will take to get my period back after one injection
162948 tn?1205256292 I had it in for over a year but wanted it removed because my husband and I are planning for another baby. So I have one more question, how long could it take to conceive once it is removed? and is it safe to try the first month that it has been removed?
Avatar f tn I also asked him again about the gas and bloating. He confirmed that it does take 3 months for it to go away. He also said that the pain we feel when we press around the incision site will stay there until it completely heals. I am glad to hear you are feeling better. Please keep me informed on your healing progress.
Avatar f tn i didnt think anything of it until i started researching online how long it would take for my period to come back since i have not experienced any period since ive been on the shot. i stopped the depo shot last feb. and still have not gotten my period. i was thinking i had a thyroid problem because my mom does, but now i completely believe this is due to depo. i am so upset about this and i am trying to lose weight but it is just not coming off. NO MATTER WHAT.
Avatar n tn i am extremely sorry you had to go through this. there is nothing they can do to reverse have to wait for it to leave you. once you get your AF back, if it is irregular, they can treat you for that....DON'T LET THEM GIVE YOU MORE BC. tell them you want progesterone to help regulate AF. i found a good detox tea works wonders. eat healthy stay fit and excersize. depo is stored in fat and thats why it stays as long as it does....all the weight gain from depo has depo in it!!!
Avatar f tn Is it possible that the depo shot is causing me not to get pregnant? How long does it actualy take to work out of your system? I've only used it once. Also since after yasmin birth control pill I have had very light periods which only last for 2 or 3 days is that normal?
1636472 tn?1439186588 No AF!!! How long does it take once you get your IUI done for you to know if you are prego? I know someone who just had IVF done on April 6th and was told she can test on the 19th. So that is 13 days. It takes time to implant, correct? So if you haven't started yet, then hopefully you are prego!! Please do keep us all posted on here, I am anxious to hear what happens!! I really appreciate the support and luck you are sending my way! Thank you again! You are in my thoughts and prayers!
Avatar n tn hi ive been bleeding for 3 months of being on depo, im never going to take it again. i want to get pregnant what does clomid do, does it reverse the depo? sorry my doctor wont answer anything he wants to put me on birth control after i said i wanted a baby..
Avatar n tn after the result read my OB, she prescribed me PROVERA 10 tablets to take it for 10 days..then she advised me to get back after finish taking it and if i already had a period...thats it! i dont know about provera,thats why i search it here to have knowledge on it..but i dont really understand why and for what is provera,what is the reason why i take these. pls help me understand..thank you and more power to all women..
315867 tn?1193593448 Have faith. I was on depo for a year and got pregnant while I was still on it. Keep trying and good luck!
Avatar n tn also the reason i got off is b/c my obgyn told me (only after i asked if it was true b/c a friend had told me this and it happened to her) if you take depo for a long time it has made some women become sterile and not be able to have kids and then usualluy it takes a long to conceive after you get off. sometimes it takes a year or so.
Avatar n tn 6 years later i have tried it again i was due to have the second shot 5th of september 11 but have decided against it as i was bleeding after sex..... the question i have is how long will it take my body to get back to normal after having just 1 shot and how will i no if im pregnent if im not having periods????
