Getting Pregnant After Stopping The 4 Years Depo Provera

I am 24 and decided after 4 years being on the depo injection, it was time to give my body a break. My last injection was due on the 4th August 2012 which I didnt have. I started bleeding 28th Dec 2012 (around 4 months after my injection was due). The bleeding was the worst I have ever experienced. I was changing about 7 times a day and it last 32 days without a break and constant heavy bleeding. It finally stopped on 31st Jan. I then started bleeding again 42 days later on 14th March 2013 this year and it lasted for 4 days so I am hoping I am back to normal. Are these periods normal and is it likely the depo is out of my system? The whole time I was on the depo I didn't bleed once! I would like to start trying for a baby and hope that now my periods are back I have high chances of doing so.

Birth Control :: Depo-provera Side Effects - Nausea, Headaches, Cramping

I was on the Birth control shot for 9 months. I was supposed to go in between Aug 11th-Aug 17th. I Decided not to go because I had every side effect possible. After I got off of it I have been bleeding. It's not the same everyday some days it spotting but most are like a light period. I also get bad cramping on some days. I have experienced nausea, headaches, cramping. It is now September 24th. I have been having these problems for over a month now. Anyone have the same problem? And if so is there any way of knowing when this will go away? Or anything to make it at least more comfy to get by it all?

Abortion, Depo-provera And Then Sex

On february 6th I started a medicated abortion at planned parenthood. Then a week later I went for my follow up appointment on february 14th. Everything was fine, and they injected me with my choice of birth control, depo provera, that day. Well of course it was Valentine's day, and the physician said it was okay to have sex again. I wasn't intending on it but me and my boyfriend ended up having sex that day without a condom, and he accidently came inside of me. I feel so stupid because my physician didn't tell me how long it would take for the depo provera to take effect, and I forgot to ask because of my nervousness. My question is that if it was possible I was ovulating and that I could get pregnant again?

Trying To Conceive :: After Depo-Provera?

I took depo for about 2 years in high school, (without breaks) and it was a full year before I got a period again. It's been a total of 22 months since I stopped taking depo and now I'm trying to conceive with my fiancé. I miscarried a month ago at 14 weeks.

When I consulted my doctor she told me firmly that YES. IT IS BECAUSE OF DEPO. going on it for long periods of time can cause infertility and I was told that I will not be able to carry a pregnancy to term for anywhere from 1-5 years- if at all. I've also been told to stay if any other birth control as that can increase my chances of not being able to give birth.

Has anyone else had similar events happen to them?

Contraception :: Depo Provera ? Think Again

I used Depo from 1999 - 2006 on my G.P's advice that it was perfectly 'safe' and had no side effects other than no periods. In September '06 after reading online risks I demanded a Bone Density Scan and to my horror Depo has caused Osteoporosis. I am 30 yrs old!! My skeleton is equal to that of a 70 yr old woman thanks to Depo. I had no period for 7 yrs, my oestrogen levels are now extremely low and indicate I've gone through early menopause, my G.P refuses to test for this at this stage. I also had 4 stone weight gain - which I have now lost with extreme dedication, mood swings, blurred vision, chronic abdominal pain, lack of lubrication , exhaustion and more.I continued with the Depo unaware it was the cause for 7 yrs. I thought it was work stress causing it all. Only on a friends advice end 2006 I Googled Depo side effects, what I found was shocking. To all you women out there on this crazy drug, look up the side effects, go to the manufactureres website - pfizer.com, GET a copy of the patient info sheet,Google it, this is no good for you. I've been off it 4 months and no period yet. Side effects still there, I have had sore nipples for 5 days now, thought I may be pregnant but not - luckily! I have terrible hot flashes in the night I wake up saturated in sweat in the groin and underarm area, I still get totally exhausted toward the end of the day and have to just lay down, at my age!! Stomach pain has ceased now and still losing weight.

Depo-provera And Infertility

I'm nearly 16 years old and I found out some pretty horrible news about 3 months ago and it's been playing on my mind.

When my mum was younger she went to her doctors for her first depo contraceptive injection, her doctor didn't give her a pregnancy test but little did they know she was pregnant on me (my mum clearly didn't know either).

2 injections down the line and my mum was having problems and her stomach was swelling the doctors said that it was a stomach ulcer (it was me aha) after a while my mum insisted on having a pregnancy test and found out she was having me.

They said it could lead me Into having fertility problems.

They have said in the future if I try before I'm 25 and I am infertile that I will get ivf and any other treatment for free but..

I just wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else and if they have had problems with getting pregnant or of there is any advice in knowing if I am infertile like symptoms and stuff like that

I know I'm young and won't be having children yet it just worries me.

Am I Pregnant? On Depo-provera

Recently am on the first shot of depo, no birth control usage before this.

Ive always had pretty normal periods, lasting 3-5 days and itll go away.

Once i got on depo, i missed my period the first month completely.

The second month(which is now) i got my period, and so far its lasted 3 weeks and in 2 days itll be 4 weeks..

I should note that I do have unprotected sex with my husband, we are not looking to have a child anytime soon.

My period this month was a normal/heavy flow for about 2 weeks. And the last week its just been spotting sort of red and brown blood mixed together. I also should mention that on the first week of having my period this month,(TMI) a HUGE and i mean HUGE about the length of your hand, piece of tissue came out...It looked almost like... a piece of fish fillet. One side was white and the other side was kinda bloody gray dark looking. It was strange I panicked and threw it out.

Ive been repulsive to smells lately especially in food. I haven't gained weight. I have this weird sensation.Almost like a "gross" feeling inside my body. My breasts arent tender. I am wondering if i am pregnant. I took a pregnancy test before my period started this month and it came as negative. Not sure if maybe stress or pregnant?

Does implantation bleeding even last a week plus?

Contraception :: Depo-provera Coming Off It

I took 2 doses (injections) of depo last summer. The first month into it I bled for 2-3 weeks and then slight spotting here and there up until september. My last shot was in September and then I decided to not go back for another dosage. Ever since last September I have not seen a period until late June. Ever since that period I had a period every 2 to 3 weeks. Is this normal or should I see my primary doctor? Also I've had a coloscopy in May so this might have been another factor. My last visit to the doctor a nurse told me it might take months or a year for my periods to go back to normal. Any one had a similar experience of periods coming every 2 to 3 weeks after depo?

Contraception :: Anyone Gotten Pregnant After Depo-provera

HELLO Everyone, I received the DEPO shot back on 03/16/2015 and never went back for any additional shots since I started spotting enough to sometimes fill 4 tampons a day(I'm sorry if it is tmi)... lol, so anyways I continued bleeding all until January 15,2016. and just last week on the 02/04/2016 I had a confirmed pregnancy home test and a confirmed pregnancy at my PCP's office, I am going to my OBGYN's office on 02/23, so I have no idea how far along I could be or when I started ovulating again. But it has been almost 1 year since my last DEPO shot. I heard it takes anywhere from 10-18 months to get pregnant after your last DEPO shot. I will let you all know how far along I am after my OB appointment that way we will know how long after DEPO I became pregnant. Has anyone else gotten pregnant while continuously spotting/bleeding?
