I have heard many people have done this after coming off Depo and it has worked, but i'm not sure what to do. My periods are a regular 26 days but are pretty heavy. Any advice is much appreciated!!!!

Avatar f tn are you pregnant? It sounds like you are. If not are you on depo provera shot? That can do it too.
Avatar f tn Depo Provera { Started 5/20/2010, Last Shot 2/9/2012 } Before I started getting the Depo Provera Injections I always had a normal, slightly heavy period. Minimal cramping. After taking Depo Provera for 1 year I finally lost my periods.
Avatar m tn It's March of '11 and I still havent had a period, I didnt have my period, or really ever blot during the use of the Depo Provera, and I've taken tests to see if I'm pregnant but they've came out negative. Is this normal? When should I expect my period?
Avatar m tn The first injection should be given in the first five days of a normal menstrual cycle (day one is the first day of your period). This will protect you from pregnancy immediately. But if you start on some other day, you will need to use additional contraception, eg condoms for the first seven days after having the injection. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn Hi Dr. Goodman, I wonder if you have any information about how Depo-Provera can change the symptoms of ovarian cancer v. ovarian cysts? I have been on Depo-Provera for two years and it seems that it would mask all the symptoms that are most likely to identify a cyst vs. a tumour. Do you know anything about how the two would look different in the presence of Depo-Provera?
Avatar n tn To re-hash, I was put on Depo-Provera for endometriosis. I'm at the end of the second month of its three month effective range, and everything's been fine so far. (I had surgery on 5/17, light bleeding until about the beginning of the second week of June, then nothing since *yay*). For the past 3-4 days, I've been getting that 'pre-period' feeling (slightly *ugh*, little crampy on the side where the cyst was, and mucousy discharge.
Avatar f tn I was on depo shot for about 6months and when my 3rd shot was due I didn't go get it. I been off the shot for about 4-5 months and my menstrual cycles returned to their regular function within the first month after missing the last shot(28 day cycle and 4-5 days of AF.) I am a very healthy woman in a very healthy fit condition. I was wondering around how long does it take to get pregnant after the last shot. I didn't have any weight gain nor didn't stopped my periods.
Avatar f tn Changes in menstrual cycle is expected but this month was weird. I got my first period after depo in May. Two days after it expired. It lasted bout a week, was light, fairly normal. Then I bled again bout two weeks later that lasted about a week and a half also light. So I bled twice in May. I skipped the month of June, no period. Then 4th of July I got my period, light and lasted a week, stopped then started again around July 19/20th.
Avatar n tn Back in Sept 2009 i received the Depo-Provera shot. I never repeated the shot after that (therefore there was only one administered). It is now Aug 2010 and i have still yet to start a menstrual cycle (I have not had sex in over a year, therefore no possibility of pregnancy). I went to my GYN and he gave me Prometrium to hopefully start my period, nothing. He then gave me birth control to see if that would make me start.....still nothing for two months.
Avatar f tn Hi! If you were my patient, I would discuss depo provera with you. After a few injections periods often stop or at least diminish to spotting. A side effect of depo can be weight gain if you are not careful. If you weren't interested in that I would discuss the Mirena IUD--that is inserted into the uterus and after a few weeks usually gets rid of the period for many people. We are definitely using it in virgins and women who have not been pregnant and it is very safe.
Avatar n tn Contraceptive effectiveness is achieved within 24 hours of receiving Depo-Provera. Depo-Provera should be administered during the first five days of a normal menstrual cycle (in order to avoid inadvertent administration during pregnancy) and/or immediately following pregnancy termination. Depo-Provera may also be administered at any time, and with no added precautions if the woman is currently on the combined oral contraceptive pill or the progestin only pill and is definitely not pregnant.
432411 tn?1206475709 I have been searching the net and find lots of women with lots of side effects from taking Depo Provera, but I am trying to find other women who have experienced problems after QUITTING the injections.
Avatar n tn About a year ago i had a pelvic ultrasound and they found blood clots in my uterus and this was caused by being on the depo provera shot for 2 years.I have been passing them for a bout a yaer now.Maybe you should set up an appt with your gy.Im sure they will be able to tell you why your passing blood clots as they did me.Hope everthings alright for you.
1440861 tn?1316134417 It usually occurs regularly, around day 14 of a 28-day menstrual cycle. The best timing of intercourse in order to conceive is day 10, 12, 14 and 16 (in case of late ovulation) of a 28 day cycle. After intercourse, do not wash immediately and keep on lying for some time. You can also keep a pillow under your buttocks. I hope it helps. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn Success stories are deffinately in need with all the negative information on TTC after depo. I too decided to decline any form on BC to get my cycle back after depo. I was really considering going back on the pill because 2 years ago I did get off depo, put on the pill and AF came to visit really quick! But it was heavy, painful, and I was still working full time, going to college full time and still raising my son alone....not time for that hassle-so back to depo I went.
Avatar n tn After being on depo provera for 1 year, I decided to discontinue use and switch to the pill. I decided to be single (and not sexually active) for a while, so I decided to wait until I got my period to start taking the pill. The only problem is that I STILL haven't had a period! It's been 6 or 7 months since I stopped getting the shots. I had normal periods while on the shot, and before I was on the shot, but once I stopped getting it my periods vanished...
1856888 tn?1325186544 usually best use of depo-provera is that you do not delay the next injection with in 1/2 weeks. i am not sure after missing one month when are you suppose to start provera. however with medication Normally the level of progesterone in your blood increases about a week before your period. If medroxyprogesterone is taken for 5 to 10 days each month at this time (ie day 16 to 21 of your cycle) it mimics the natural rise in your progesterone levels.
Avatar n tn I have spotting spells nearly everyday but no proper period I also bleed after sex is this normal after being on the depo only once??
2184791 tn?1337900217 Hmm its common you dnt get your period on the depo provera because somee might experience spotting or light period or no period at all will be fine dont be scared and pain may be just from the sex not the this your first time using depo?
Avatar n tn I have been off depo for more than a year and still have had no menstrual cycle. I was told by my doctor when I first stated the shot when you came off it willl take less than a year for it to come back again. I'm really worried because my job causes me to spend more than 8 hours a day with my laptop on my lap and I don't know if it's leading to anything. I have an ongoing battle with cervical dysplasia for the past three years now.
Avatar f tn I stopped depo, it took 3 years for my menstrual cycle to return. I began depo again for 2 years, stopped it for again for 1 1/2 years and my menstrual cycle did not return. Approximately 3 months ago I had one shot of depo. I am happily married and my husband and I are now actively wanting to conceive, with the history I have given, what would be your prognosis for return of mensrual cycle/fertility.Or suggestions for conception?
1012558 tn?1250893022 It is good to know that most of the side effects that you had for the first time have disappeared by now with continuous use of Depo shots. But you see irregularity in menstrual periods and flow is an important side effect of Depo shots. For most women, periods become fewer and lighter. After one year, half of the women who use the birth control shot will stop having periods completely.
Avatar n tn I got off Depo provera about three years ago. Prior to that I had no menstrual problems. Now, right before and after my period, I have cramps, diarrhea, nausea, and really long cyles. I was wondering if anyone else experienced this.
