For some women, their period may go away entirely. Thank you for all this helpful information!
No flow for three months after stopping Depo: Regardless, dont assume there will be probs. This is sort of an update to my comment a month ago.
Instead I continue to gain weight and have ridiculous bloating. Sign In or Register.
Which Form of Birth Control Is Right for You?
Their very own guidelines talk about the connection. I was really scared so I got on the internet and found this site.
And it really has helped in that regard. This practice helps you avoid pregnancy by alerting you to fertile times in your cycle and also gives you a useful health record as your fertility cycles return to normal. My breasts are swollen and hurt, my stomach is bloated and I actually WISH for a period, so maybe it will kick me back into gear.
I would like to say, perhaps belatedly, that Depo is an effective contraceptive that I feel women should have the option to choose. If you are systematic and optimistic, you will get better.
I have a long list of food intolerances now. It is probably wise for teens to avoid Depo if they have a personal history of amenorrhea no flow for three or more monthsor a close relative mother, grandfather or sister who had a broken bone without a major fall.
My last shot I was almost 2 weeks late getting and I've been bleeding ever since. Also in limbo was the endometrium; made inhospitable for implantation and now relearning how to build up and shed out properly. Informed consent is so important.
Often, women are unaware of the impact missed contraceptive pills can have on their menstrual cycle. This time my doctor gave me the shot, the morning my period was suppose to come.
Other things to think about Hormone levels are very low while using Depo Provera, so there is some concern that this may lead to thinning of the bones osteoporosis in women who use Depo Provera for a long period of time.
This fact sheet discusses your options. I feel so awful for all women going through this, and for any woman who is allowing this awful body deteriorating fluid into their systems. Sometimes brown discharge can be a sign of trouble that needs to be looked at, but usually its just some oxidized blood coming out. It feels like im dieng everyday. I literally had a period from January til August!
One tablet four times on every heavy-flow day, decreases flow by almost a half. I decided to come off the shot since it was causing these problems AND I am hoping to get pregnant within the next year.
