Stopping depo provera side effects menstrual periods

Common Questions and Answers about Stopping depo provera side effects menstrual periods


Avatar n tn when you lose the fat, you lose the depo provera. That's why our periods are still not normal for a long time afterward, because it is still in fatty tissue. The good thing is you can lose the weight. A low carb or zero carb diet until you lose the weight. And you will lose it fast.
432411 tn?1206475709 I was on Depo Provera for BC for 8 years with no side effects but headaches, which were manageable. Also had no periods, which was great! However, I became ill when I stopped having the injections at age 45. I experienced fatigue, joint pain and swelling, and depression. I was tested for everything from Lyme disease and Lupus, to thyroid conditons - all negative. My Dr. finally gave up and diagnosed me with Chronic Fatigue syndrome.
Avatar n tn Well, in February 2006, after having a Laparoscopy and a discussion with the Gynaecologist I went for DEPO. WOW… I got the side effects, gain weight, swing moods, I even forgotten the rucksack on a train station when on holiday in Fort William…cool…I was crying from nothing, shooting to my husband for nothing, having periods now and then, spots, bleeding,etc, etc.
Avatar f tn You may be given Provera if your menstrual periods have stopped or a female hormone imbalance is causing your uterus to bleed abnormally. Provera is also prescribed to prevent abnormal growth of the uterine lining in women taking estrogen replacement therapy. Other forms of medroxyprogesterone, such as Depo-Provera, are used as a contraceptive injection and prescribed in the treatment of endometrial cancer.

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 Has anyone experienced any bad side effects from the hcg shots? I am administering them myself and just want to know what to look out for.
Avatar n tn days when I can barely function and have also experienced symptoms of hypoglycemia and panic attacks and or crying jags for no reason. I have been reading a lot about the Depo side effects some women have had and they mirror mine. I've had a thyroid test and it was fine, so I don't think that I'm diabetic. I have been trying to eat well and clense with milk thistle to try to hasten the exit of the Depo.
Avatar f tn I've been reading alot of different side effects from different people on the depo provera shot.. some that go from hair loss to joint pain,mood swings, water retention, WEIGHT GAIN ..and the list goes on and on.
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar n tn maybe you should get checked out anyway, if your in a lot of pain don't take the chance. Depo Side Effects One of the major side effects of depo provera is the irreversible loss of bone density with prolonged use. This may also lead to the higher risk of osteoporosis in women. Therefore, it is always recommended that you should not use this contraceptive for more than two years. Women are also advised to exercise and take in a lot of calcium while using this method.
1160836 tn?1332333769 My doctor thought it was enviormental (exercise, stress...etc) as I just started to go do body pump right around that time. Every cycle before that was 30-31 days to the day!! So we will see.....
Avatar f tn I will try it but I am so sensitive to all medication side effects. I had issues on Sprintec. The dr said if Provera doesnt work its either Lupron or Hysterectomy. I dont want a hyster so I may have to try Lupron. Thanks for your input.
312323 tn?1193300534 Hi my name is Roxann and this is my story. I hope I can find a lawer or someone else with the same symptoms so that I know im not crazy.
Avatar f tn changes in menstrual cycle (which can include irregular periods, no periods, and spotting); fatigue, weight gain, headaches, and sometimes dizziness. Another fact to be aware of is that once you stop Depo injections, it may take several months for your menstrual cycle to become 'normal' again. Although you can become pregnant after stopping Depo, it can take several months to a year before you're able to conceive.

5484624 tn?1368658463 The only guaranteed way that you won't get pregnant is if you do not have sex. The side effects of Depo-provera is weight gain, loss of calcium in developing bones as well as: •Irregular, heavy or loss of menstrual cycle. The chances of getting periods reduces the longer you take the injections, though normal cycles should resume within 14 weeks of stopping the birth control.
Avatar n tn I have been on depo for three years now and have not experienced any side effects, not even weight gain, except this bleeding with orgasm. However, it comes and goes. Sometimes I bleed when I orgasm. Sometimes I don't. At first I figured, well my lining must be shedding and the contractions make the blood come out, but with all this talk of hysterectomies and endometriosis, I am kind of scared.
Avatar f tn Your symptoms are worse than what you started. Yaz, like many other birth control pills will cause side effects, but since they are so popular and have put their name so far out to the public, the company is seen as doing the opposite and worse than other companies.
Avatar n tn I started my period about 5 days later (as expected when taking/stopping provera) and so began my birthcontrol pills shortly after. Now, in mid June, still having constant periods. They are much lighter than my periods used to be. I've always had super heavy periods. but now I am barely noticing even just a faint pink streak here or there most of the times. Sometimes I think then, oh good, it must be ending, yay.
Avatar n tn Effexor is an antidepressant and it is known to have effects on menstrual cylces of some women. But iron deficiency is a common but less appreciated cause of increased bleeding. Try to eat foods with iron such as meat and leafy green vegetables and take iron supplements from the drugstore. It can take 3 months or sometimes more to restore iron levels. Begin by taking the iron 3 times daily.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor she said after stopping BC pills it could take this long she told me to wait about another month!! And that they usually don't start checking things out until i haven't gotten one for 6 months!
Avatar n tn In November I had the depo provera shot. I didn't have my period for 2 weeks and then it came and has not stopped. It's now 3 days until August. I have a doctor appt. for the 1st and that was the soonest I can be seen. I want it to go away. I'm scared it won't. I think I'm getting anemic and that might explain some of my severe exhaustion etc. But it's been 8monthes almost 9. Know one told me this was a possible side effect.
Avatar f tn I got it from having a cone biopsy 2 years ago. I was on the depo shot so I wasn't getting any periods, but then i got severe abdominal pain and had to have surgery. That's when they noticed my cervix was scarred shut. It reclosed after the surgery 3 months ago. I am seeing a new dr soon, but i am confused. I haven't been able to evacuate menstrual fluid for the past two months. Anyone have any info?
Avatar n tn I started seasonique on 6/20/07 and everything has been going great up until the last week of August. I started a little spotting, then on 9/9/07 my period started, a week before it should. So far this is the worst effect as its been great so far (except for one more thing, the weight gain of 4 lbs. which my dr. says is just from me, although the packed clearly states it is a serious side effect and I should contact my dr.).
Avatar n tn 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. Side effects with Mirena are most common during the first three months after insertion and decrease over time. SIDE EFFECTS AT 3 MONTHS AT 5 YEARS Lower abdominal pain (cramping) 10.5% 2.0% Acne or other skin problems 3.
Avatar n tn Massive doses of birth control pills (which we don't want, because of all the side effects), or to take Provera, which is a hormone. We chose the Provera. Last night I took the last pill... I was told to take it for 5 days and then I should start my period again. She said if this period lasts longer than 2 weeks to come back. I haven't started up again yet, but it hasn't even been 24 hours since my last dose. So hopefully this turns out well.
