Depo Provera

My name is Stephanie, I have been diagnosed with uncontrollable endometriosis for the past 5 years. i have tried everything, from lupron, to laparoscopies, to yaz, to smoking marijuana - currently i am on Depo Provera and have been for the past year and a half. I am noticing a lot of side affects from this as time goes on, and unfortunately for me this has been the only thing that even remotely helps, and i still have a lot of pain. some of these side affects include, cracking of limbs and joints involuntarily, extreme back pain, stomach growling when not hungry, headaches, nausea and sometimes blurred vision and lack of understanding. Is there anyone that can suggest another treatment i have not heard or or maybe has some advice on long term uses of depo provera as endometriosis pain management. p.s anyone hear about endometriosis being classified recently as an autoimmune disease? That certainly sounds about right!!

Have you tried seeing an actual Endo Specialist? With as much as you've been through I would say it would be your next step. Here's a website you might find useful...Also this is the specialist I saw about 2wks ago - very happy with them :-) If you have any questions feel free to ask.
As far as the provera, I have no idea. I was on it once for 9months and bled for the entire time. All I know is that I was a B****!!! It was aweful!! I hadn't heard about the autoimmune thing, I'll have to look it up....

Go through the website especially the library and treatment.

I would imagine you are fine. Provers can cause many many side effects...if tjey continue to be overly bothersome consult your physician. I would also suggest if you are trying to avoid getting p /g you should most definitely be using another form of contraception. Also provera does not protect against any stds or hiv. Be safe and good luck!
