What is called non-specific immunity, by enhancing function of macrophages, neutrophils & natural killer cells.

Does the Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot cause movements in your stomach?

Does the Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot cause movements in your stomach?

Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone): Interestingly, progestins (like depo) by virtue of their functions in pregnancy relax smooth muscle. This is beneficial in pregnancy because the uterus is mostly smooth muscle. The muscles that move your bowels also contain smooth muscle so a progestin can change bowel frequency, probably slowing the bowels. I hope this helps- may not be the answer to your question. ...Read more

3-4 months: You can expect the effects of Depo-Provera, both the contraceptive effects and the side effects to last at least as long as the recommended period between Depo shots. Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) suppresses the production of estrogen. Depending on the type of side effects you're having, temporary supplementation with estrogen may help mitigate these side effects. ...Read more

Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) is good for 3 months but how long does it tske to entirely leave your system? Thanks

Good question: Depo-provera has shown diminished fertility for up to one year after the last injection. So clearly it has lasting side effects with your hormonal system. However the drug itself has a short half-life and is out of your system quite quickly after the depo dose wears off. So the problem is that it alters your natural hormone balance and it takes a while to recover, not that it's "in your system". ...Read more
