depo-provera

2051102 tn?1330321233 I went back on the medication Medroxyprogesterone this month. I was on it in March and started my period as normal but instead of lasting 14 days it lasted 12. Last month I forgot that I was suppose to take the medication and as normal I started but one day early and again it lasted 12 days. I started on the 2nd of this month and my period was suppose to start on the 7th of this month, I am now 5 days late.
Avatar n tn Weight gain, weird cravings for sweets, ugly bad moods and at times emotional and cramping from time to time. Does anyone know what can be the cause of this or why the pills haven't brought down my period. (Btw, its my First time taking them.
135691 tn?1271100723 My symptoms, like a lot of us here, include insomnia, diminished sexual desire, fatigue, headache, lethargy, depression, weight gain, vaginal dryness, stress incontinence... and LOTS of whining. Thank you so much for your help and all that you do, your answers are so very kind and thoughtful...
Avatar f tn I took two pregnancy tests and they both came out negative, afterwards I went to the doctor and was prescribed Medroxyprogesterone. My period came and it was a normal flow that lasted the same amount of time as it always does. Right now I'm currently taking Tri-Sprintec. I've noticed that my breasts are getting bigger, but at the moment I'm extremely inactive. So my question is: could this weight gain be from my inactivity coupled with my new birth control or could it be pregnancy?
1003693 tn?1250204277 Well i had an appointment with my endocrinologist today, she said the clomid didn't help, i didn't ovulate, so she told me to stop taking it and to stop taking medroxyprogesterone cause it was making me swell and gain weight, but she referred me to a fertility specialist who she has talked to and who is willing to help me, basically the last fertility specialist said they wouldnt' be able to do anything for me cause of my weight, hell they wouldn't even give me clomid unless i lost like 70 pound
Avatar n tn 3) is greater than 3/1, a pattern consistent with anovulation and a process named polycystic ovary syndrome (PCO). Patients with PCO also have difficulty with weight gain. Weight gain in itself can contribute to anovulation. Clomiphene is effective in restoring ovulation to about 80% of women with anovulation, all other hormone tests normal, stable weight, preferrably under 200 lbs, and positive withdrawal bleeding to medroxyprogesterone acetate (Provera).

Avatar n tn Causes of secondary amenorrhea include stress and anxiety, malnutrition, depression, overexercising, sudden weight loss or gain (obesity),thyroid disorders and hormonal imbalance due to polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS).Smoking is also associated with secondary amenorrhea. Sometimes tumors of the ovaries and brain may also cause absence of menstruation. Some of these causes are modifiable like if you are having stress then yoga and meditation and antianxiety medicines can help you out.
Avatar n tn I was taken off Loestrin for 2 reasons. The weight gain and 4 out of 7 months that I was on it I stopped having periods. I was instructed to to take the Provera by itself since my progesterone levels were in the negative. I did not want to do that because the chances of pregnancy were a bit higher. That's when my doctor told me to take the Provera and Ortho Cept together. I reduced my calorie intake to 1000-1200 and added more cardio.
Avatar f tn I gain weight very easily and lose very slowly, and with great effort. The only other medical issues I have are Raynauds and osteoarthritis. The Raynauds has gotten worse in my hands and feet, but the coldness I've been feeling is now in my entire body....it just feels different from the Raynauds, which I've had since my 20's. I simply cannot keep warm.
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Avatar f tn The doctor did say that he could give me 10 days worth of depo to force a period. The thing is, I don't want to gain any weight with that. I am a dancer and I am currently in a show that weighs us in and if I gain past what they want, I will get kicked out! Help? Should I still test later this week? Do you think I could still be pregnant? HELP!!!!
Avatar n tn hi, i have been on birth control and metformin and medroxyprogesterone, and they still didnt bring back my period, i had my baby in dec 02 and went on the needle in jan 03, and been on it since 05 and ever since i been on the needle, no period at all. i been on the needle 2 years, i dont know if its the needle,alot of people i know who have tried the needle for long periods of time got pregnant right after they stopped the needle, maybe im differ?
Avatar f tn Anyway, I have a lot to say about the contraceptives that I have tried here, and none of them satisfied me at all. Weight gain and depression were the most common side effects I have gone through when taking Loestrin 30 (ethinylestradiol, norethisterone) and once I decided to put the Implanon (etonogestrel) – I could only handle it inside for 7 months and it was awful all the way out. I have never had so many side effects as this one.
1897345 tn?1374269455 I have PCOS and the only sign that I had was weight gain and weird periods. I was put on Metformin and it help amazingly! Be sure you are going to a doctor that you feel comfortable with. My doctor makes me feel like I am his only patient. When ttc is very important to have a good doctor.
Avatar m tn I eat healthy and workout and have no problem with my weight, no unexplained weight gain, etc. I thought I had a miscarriage because I fell on pavement and landed on my pelvic bone and that's when I started bleeding (my dog whacked me on the back of the knee as we were walking with his head). My ultrasound came back with what looked like pearls on my ovaries but the ultrasound tech said my history does not match with PCOS and that I may just be really fertile.
Avatar f tn Similar to the delay in fertility after discontinuation of DMPA, other adverse effects, such as weight gain, depression, and menstrual irregularities, may continue for as long as 1 year after the last injection. The FDA issued a "black-box" warning in November 2004, stating that bone loss from using Depo-Provera "may not be completely reversible" even after stopping the drug.
Avatar f tn ** **Fast forward 4 years after the exam. and LOTS and LOTS of cramps and mood swings later.** I've gain a lot of weight since I started, not going to denying being fat already. I have went to many, many, many doctors. And the end result was always the same. "You're fat, lose weight, exercise, eat right and you'll be okay." Not lying. I'm completely serious about that quote. Okay, I get it. I'm fat and need to lose weight.
Avatar f tn http://www.drugs.com/pdr/provera.html#ixzz0p34uv1bA Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Provera.
Avatar n tn I'm 54 years old and have had all the regular menopause symptoms; hot flashes, sleep problems, anxiety, weight gain etc. My doctor put me back on Avian 28 birth control pills & all these smptoms have stopped. However, I now have the most baffling of all symptoms: My body odor has turned very masuline. Both under my arms and in my female area. I smell like a sweaty "guy" down there all the time - same with armpits.
Avatar n tn estratest from days 1-25 and medroxyprogesterone from days 16-25, each month. Five days after I started the medroxyprogesterone, I had another attack at work, but was able to quiet myself down enough to drive home, and didn't get back to feeling normal until mid-morning the next day.
Avatar n tn you can always call your pharmacist and ask to make sure. My husband and I are TTC and I took the Depo shot twice and stopped 11/04 and then started BCP till 8/05 and havent had a period since except with provera. I think the Depo is still in my system and is screwing everything up. I hope the provera works for you and best of luck with the clomid.
Avatar n tn I saw that you said you were on Desogen. I have been on this pill for 6 months now and have experienced a lot of weight gain and often feel very lathargic. My question is did you have any of these side effects from this pill and when you switched to Yasmin did u prefer it? Because I just asked my doctor to prescribe yasmin but haven't started the pill pack yet. Thanks!!

Avatar n tn put me on medroxyprogesterone for 10 days. I held off taking it because I really thought I was pregnant. I gave in and took it. 7 days after my last pill I had a lot of pain and cramping and passed a large clot that looked like tissue (I had a miscarrage at age 41) and it looked the same. Let me know what happened with you. This all happened yesterday 1-25-06. Makes me realize next time listen to my body.
Avatar n tn You will find out that this shot can give you weight gain, headaches, and who knows what else side affects. I know that it sounds horrible having this shot, but it really does help the Endometriosis. I have it really bad and have only had two shots so far. I will do anything at this point to try and get rid of the pain. It is horrible pain and you can't even work. I pray after having these shots it will help and then try to get pregnant.
Avatar n tn Long Heavy Periods, Anxiety, Acne, headaches,unusual hair growth, excessive weight gain, and even depression. We saw the specialist today, and she is going for extensive blood work tomorrow and then a biopsy on her uterus on Tuesday. I will keep everyone posted.... In the meantime, Please don't wait another minute to find help, ONLY YOUR DOCTOR can help you. If you are experiencing any of these systems make arrangements with your OBGYN or DOCTOR, and let him/her know what is going on.

Avatar n tn When I looked it up most of what I found described that as being brownish red and almost like a light period. This was a small ammount and light pink. I have been very much on emotional extremes so if I am not pg I know that my horomones are riding a roller coaster anyway. what do your other accronyms mean? I am new to this...
