I have been on Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 2 1/2 years and was told dec 12 I have a bunch of small ovarian cysts will the shot affect them in anyway?

The shot may help prevent other cysts from forming though by essentially turning the ovaries off during the 3 months that it works. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi. I have been bleeding almost every day for a few months. I have an ovarian cyst and been off Depo-Provera shot since march. Could this be reason for bleed?
Need pelvic exam: Need to see your primary care physician or OB-Gyn for a pelvic exam to check for other reasons like polyps and infections. At this late date, it is doubtful that past depo-provera use is the cause of your continued bleeding for months. Fibroids can cause irregular bleeding symptoms as well as hormonal shifts. Need to see dr. Read more

I'm having a clear boogery discharge & wondering if its normal when im 20 days w/o my p. Last period was 6/03/13, last Depo-Provera shot 12/2012, curious now?
Take pregnancy test: Your clear discharge may or may not be normal. However, if you've been engaging in unprotected sex off Depo-Provera and you're more than 4 weeks past your last period, it's time time to take a home pregnancy test. Some women will experience some vaginal discharge during pregnancy. If your hpt is negative & you want to get pregnant, keep having unprotected sex. But if u don't want to get pregnant, see doc.
