Losing weight after depo provera questions

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after depo provera questions


Avatar n tn I went off Depo Provera after 2 shots in January. I was supposed to get my injection mid-January but didn't. Now I'm having nausea every day - almost all day long - fatigue, and sleepiness. Mid-March, I had some spotting just for a couple of days, followed by SEVERE breast swelling and pain. Then I had what seemed to be a normal period two weeks ago (5 days long, not very heavy, no cramping).
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 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 have been on the Depo-provera for 10 years. I'm 27 now and have been married for 2 years. My next one is due on the 14th Feb 2012 the only time i have bleed was when I had cell's removed after another bad 'smear' test. I really want a baby my husband has 5 kids but we dont see them much (not out of choice!) Iam really scared now that I'm not going to be able to have a baby and wont beable to be the wife I want to be....
Avatar f tn My gyno suggested continual birth control pills or Depo Provera shot. I am too worried about the weight gain as a side affect from the depo shot. Still doing my research....
Avatar n tn I'm supposed to start the pill on Friday and it's because my period stopped supposedly from losing a bunch of weight at one time. My doctor says that I'm not extremely underweight so he really doesn't think that's the reason my period stopped but has anyone ever gone on the pill to start their period again? If so, does it work? I'm also worried about gaining weight on it... a couple pounds is ok but I've read outrageous stuff saying that some people have gained 15-20 lbs...
Avatar n tn Recently I stopped treatment for endometriosis (Last year I was on Depo Lupon, then straight to Depo Provera (DP), then was put on BC to make my period come back after DP). I had two normal periods while on BC, then I had a 49 day cycle (first one after stopping BC) and this last cycle was only 15 days! The bleeding is quite heavy and dark. But no cramps. With every period I have ever had, there has been super horrid cramps.
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 I then successfully maintained my weight at 139-143 for the last year and a half. LOVE low carb! After feeling as though I had finally gotten a grip on a better style of eating for myself and had become very regimented with my carb intake, I felt confident to take on my next "evil" and quit smoking in October 2008. I used Chantix to help with this process and completed the full 12 week cycle of Chantix before stopping it as prescribed about 5 weeks ago.
Avatar n tn LOL HOWEVER, my concern is mainly the emotional / mental side effects after stopping yasmin, as well as excessive weight gain after stopping. (while not pregnant) Has anyone either Experienced these side effects after stopping yasmin OR known of anyone who has or know anything about these effects. I am guessing they are caused from the drop in the hormone levels. Also, I have heard about primrose oil and flaxseed oil being good to regulate hormones or help PMS symptoms.
Avatar n tn Hello, I was wondering if any of you all have been put on hormones after a total hysterectomy. My doctor says there are too many risks and I don't need them...I am 38. I don't know what to expect here 2 weeks after surgery, I keep waiting for a hotflash or something weird to happen. :) What can happen if I don't take them? I've had nightmares of growing hair on my face or my voice getting manly. Are my fears real? Can anyone share their experience or knowledge about hormones?
Avatar n tn Last year I had an ablation of the lining of my uterus. The dr. told me that I could'nt get pregnant. Over a year later, I am pregnant and scared to death. I have been reading up on ablation, and have came across nothing but "you should'nt get pregnant after an alation, because it's high risk for the mother and baby". I do not know how far along I am, but I believe about 4 mths already. I go to the dr.
Avatar n tn To update everyone-I had another ob apt. last week. I am about 8 weeks along & had a 2nd brief ultra sound. The tec reported again the baby has attached "where it is supposed to be." The heart beat was 175 bpm (nice & strong). It's amazing & I am still in shock! The dr. said I should see a specialist which they advise anyone over 35 who is pregnant or who had an ablation. She also told me to see her in a month. If I make it another month I will be in my 2nd trimester.
Avatar f tn I just had my HSG done last week (after 19 months of ttc). She said the tubes were clear. I was wondering if anyone here has had this done (I ovulate in the next 2 days so my fingers are crossed). I read somewhere that the chances of getting pregnant after an HSG increase significantly. Does anyone here know anything about this or even had this done and had a better success rate?
Avatar n tn Hi All, I have some questions for everyone. I had taken Depo Provera for a few years prior to getting married. When I married my DH, we decided I would stop and haven't had an injection since June 2010. My first period after that was in June of 2011 and has been regular since. I had a BFP last week and started bleeding Sunday. Went to ER and Dr said M/C at probably only 3 wks or so along. I have been bleeding quite heavily since and was relieved to read that that is normal and common.
298579 tn?1192250448 If you have any other questions to add, please feel free to do so. 1 Are you underweight, normal weight, overweight or obese? 2 How old were you when the pains started? 3 How long have you experienced the pain for? 4 Do you get pain a) after sexual arousal, b) after a bowel movement, c) after urinating, d) after exercise, e) all of the above 5 Is the pain particularly bad after one of the above? 6 Do you only have the pain after orgasm or after arousal as well?
Avatar n tn But once I got the IUD removed last Monday, I have had bleeding episodes after intercourse. They typically only last a few hours, but I still found it odd. The good news is that it doesn't appear to have messed with my cycle. I was due to ovulate on the 11th, and even with the few bleeding episodes (I was starting to wonder if my calendar had been reset) I still had those familiar O pains on Friday. If your cycle doesn't return, definitely follow the advice gien above.
Avatar n tn i have a little boy so i know what you are talkin about i get the streching feeling in my abs and in my scar I hope every thing works out for you
162948 tn?1205256292 now am scared because I see that a lot of women have not been able to conceive after the mirena IUD removal... pls help!!! I have had it for 18 months and after all the crazy stories, I am thinking of having it removed :(.
1055869 tn?1294203119 How many days after IUI would you experience pregnancy symptoms? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/184972'>how many days after iui would you get pregnancy symptoms OPEN</a>.
Avatar n tn I started feeling sick every morning (gagging but not vomiting) starting at about 10 days after the procedure. I was confirmed pregnant on day 14 after the procedure by blood test. I had the symptoms before I was confirmed positive and I also thought they were in my head, but there could be more to it. I had a failed IUI a few months before and I did not have any symptoms at all. Good luck!
Avatar f tn My main concern is what to eat? Am I going to want to eAt? With everything going on I am already losing weight from loss of apatite. Also I already have bowel issues with ibs, is this something I should discuss with my doctor? I have read posts about bloating and gas and bathroom problems well that's my life everyday lol so I hope it doesn't make it worse! Also Should my husband stay home with me for an entire week?
Avatar n tn and it has helped me a lot. I had a Depo Provera shot which made it virtually impossible to lose weight. I've been taking Indole-3-Carbinol supplements (comes from Cruciferous veggies) and am finally starting to shed some weight.
Avatar f tn I just wondered if other plus sized women carried babies successfully.... I am losing some weight, but I'll never be a small person.... Thanks for your story.
Avatar f tn I suggest that you see a naturopath doctor (one that has seen or is treating ppl currently with PCOS) and buy a bunch of books on PCOS, particularily diet books. LOSING WEIGHT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE! I notice that when I lose weight my symptoms slow or cease. Then I pack it back on again, and my symptoms get worse.. PCOS can cause pain if you have cysts on your ovaries. I have pain too where my ovaries are, and I found out I had cysts by asking my doctor for an ultrasound.
Avatar n tn I was on Weight Watchers at that time and started cheating, but was still losing...boy was I loving how WW helped my metabolism-:) little did I know then! I was wired all the time, barely sleeping and always moving. My hands shook all the time and my husband thought I was always zoning in and out. I thought it was having 2 kids under 2! Fast forward to now.
Avatar n tn My breats stayed very sore. I didn't gain weight but I couldn't lose the weight left on me by the depro shot. After the implant was removed, I felt 10000 percent better. It's amazing. I went through all of this and I was a newly wed. Yeah, valuable time wasn't spent with my new husband and now that I've had it removed and begin enjoying my husband, I get hit with the irregular and constant cycles. I would never tell anyone to use this product.
