Can I take a colon cleanse while taking prenatal vitamins? Just coming off being on the Depo-Provera for 2 1/2 years and are ttc. Thanks

Can I take a colon cleanse while taking prenatal vitamins? Just coming off being on the Depo-Provera for 2 1/2 years and are ttc. Thanks

What a waste!: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed this subject with a clear "no" answer to your question. There is virtually no value to colon flushes, cleansers, enemas, irrigation machines when the technique is accomplished to "detox" or eliminate "accumulated waste." the "no" response also applies to liver detoxes! There are few real health benefits, but sigificant unjustified risk. Don't "cleanse". ...Read more

I'm trying to get pregnant, but im on the Depo-Provera shot, how can I get pregnant? Is there any vitamins I can take? Please help me!

Depo shot: The effect of a depo-provera injection lasts about 12-14 weeks. A woman can get easily pregnant even if she gets the shot a few days late. However there are women sensitive to the shot, who stop menstruating sometimes well past the 12 weeks. Each body is unique in how it responds to drugs and how fast it clears them to return to normal. Start taking a daily prenatal vitamin with dha and folic acid. ...Read more

Can I take vitafusion vitamins while I'm on the Depo-Provera shot. (birth control)?

Can I take vitafusion vitamins while I'm on the Depo-Provera shot. (birth control)?

Yes, however: It's wise to take a quality multivitamin with contraceptives; they increase need for b6, folic acid, zinc ; other nutrients. See http://bit. Ly/1fm99af
however, vitafusion is a poor-quality vitamin- it only has 30 mg of c when it's best to take at least 500 mg/day. It has synthetic e which is toxic. It totally lacks b1, b2, zinc, magnesium etc. See http://bit. Ly/18xyule ;

Is there any vitamin I can take along side Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) that will help with my moodiness and libido?

Possible: I'd talk to your doctor before trying anything - as there might be an adjunctive treatment they can provide to help. Or, perhaps evaluate if Depo injections are the best option for you. The only supplement that I've seen that has any actual data supporting it (for mood) is called SAMe (it's a very weak serotonin reuptake inhibitor). But def check with your doctor first. Good luck! ...Read more

It usually also causes your periods to go away, sometimes for months, along with some other symptoms related to monthly cycling.
