Unhappy Re: Depo provera problems???

I've had the shot at two seprate times. The first time i went i got atleast 3 or 4 shots and i didn't have a period for a year after the shot(I was 16).
The second time i got the shot i was 19 and me and my boyfriend lived with my dad and his girlfriend, my dad pressured me into getting the shot for weeks so i finally got it to make him happy because he didn't want me having kids until i was sure. Well i only got one shot because of insurance problems but i got the shot while i was on my period and i didn't stop bleeding, I bled non-stop for a year and a half (i went to the hospital and the doctor did a pap and said i was fine). When i finally stopped bleeding I still had a period 3 times a month and that went on for about a year. Then i stopped bleeding altogether and i went to my doctor and she gave me a medicine(dont remember name) that had me to have 2 periods then I stopped again so I went to the doctors again and she gave it to me again I had just one period that time now I've stopped again and havent had one for 4 months and i dont know whether to got to the doctors again for the same medicine and i dont know if ti is still the shots fault byt i dont know i just wanted to let someone know what i was going through because i have been trying to have a baby for over a year now and i cant have one without a period and it is really depressing me and no one i know understands what i am going through.
I really really want a baby but what do i do?

I had the same problem after Depo. I started it after having a baby, who I had NO problems conceiving. I was on Depo for 2 years....got off to try for another baby.....and ran into a problem......my period didn't return. After waiting a year and a half for it to return, I saw a specialist to assist in conception. I was put on Clomid and did conceive after 4 months.

With the exception of those 4 months I was on Clomid, I had NO period until 5 years AFTER I stopped Depo. Then when it did return, I only got it a few times each year......which would still have made it almost impossible to conceive. It wasn't until 9 years after my last injection that my period regulated!!!

So, see a specialist (preferably a Reproductive Endocrinologist).........cause who knows when your period will return. Also, have them check you for PCOS........cause that is what I mysteriously developed after using Depo. The biggest symptom of PCOS is irregular or absent periods.

Best wishes..........and if you have any questions, just ask. I've been in your shoes!!!

Re: Depo provera problems???

Thank you so much, you have gave me more hope of having a child then I could have ever imagined. I thought that I was the only one this has happed to and its good to hear other people know what I'm going through and its not in my head. I looked up PCOS and from what the symptoms was and everything thats me and I'm going to go to a specialist about it. I was so scared that I was going through early menopause and never be able to have kids and that would have broke my heart because we (my spouse and I) really want kids. Thank you so much again, with just what you told me gave me alot of hope about my future. It means alot to me .THANK YOU SO MUCH. I might sound stupid but I dont care b/c now I do have hope for a family.
