im not sure bout that i took depo for 4yrs and it took me 7months just to have my period again!!! but i heard u do get spotting. i hope ur not planning on using it again theres some bad stuff on the internet bout that stuff i wished i had not taken it now. i been TTC 5yrs!!
I'm not planning on using it again. I wish I knew the whole story when I started it. Thanks and good luck.
gokuangel - Hi. I just wanted to tell you not to give up hope. It took me 6 years after coming off deop, but I am now 11 1/2 weeks pregnant, and things are going great! The combination that worked for me was avandia, femara, a trigger shot, and IUI (my first one).
butterfly - If it seems you are having trouble conceiving, I would recommend seeing a reproductive endocrinologist rather than wasting time with your OB/GYN. We wasted a year with ours because he seemed to know what he was talking about when he really had no clue.
Anyway, good luck and SSBD to both of you!!
I discussed my concerns with my ob/gyn a few weeks ago but she feels I should just wait and AF will eventually return. I have heard from others that their doctor has ordered u/s or something to determine if there is any signs of ovulation or a thicker uterine lining. It's a little difficult since I am in an area where I'm lucky to be in a practice that will still see OB patients, and I heard that is likely to change. Most of our local hospitals don't even have those services. I am between Sarasota and Ft. Myers, so if anyone has suggestions for a doctor, I'd be glad to hear them. I guess I just got excited that my period was back, then it only lasted a few hours. Thanks.
Oh my! I HATE Depo!!! I did ONE shot and had the whole bag full of side effects, WEIGHT GAIN, acne, mood swings, sleep loss, and many other terrible symptoms, it's been a year now and I have been going to doctors trying to get back to normal. I had to get on progesterone to get a cycle and that worked one time. Finally I started my own cycle all by myself! I have HIGH hopes of TTC. If ANYONE reads this DO NOT get on Depo, the negatives outweigh the positives. I did enjoy not having a period however, not having one after you're done with the shot was not great.
