I've decided to try for a baby, so how do I get the Depo-Provera shot out my system?

Time: There is no treatment to force the depoprovera out of your system early. The real challenge lies in the fact that there can be prolonged sequela from depo-p. Reports of 6mo to a year before return to ovulation and regular cycles has been listed.

Well: I would ask if u rsleeping well and about your daytime energy levels. If u think about it a lot then food can become a source of obsession. It can be kind of like addiction. Loe " Dopamine tone" can be part of the deal and buproprion may help along with something for sleep. When not feeling good then food can be a relief, then you worry, increasing stress, more food. We can do a private? ...Read more

Depo-Provera: After stopping depo-provera, the first ovulation can take awhile. Sine you only stopped the depo-provera in august, you have only had 1 or 2 ovulations. Sometimes it takes a bit longer. Usually 6 months to 1 year, depending upon your age. And I hope you are taking Folic Acid or a multivitamin daily! ...Read more

How long is the Depo-Provera shot in your system if you was on for 3 months. I'm trying too have a baby.

Will you be able to spend nearly all your time with a baby? Are you fuinancially secure? Don't mean to lecture, but will your baby have all the advantages he/she could have if you & your partner waited? If planning 2B single parent, please think again. ...Read more

I am taking provera (medroxyprogesterone) for hormonal imbalance...Can I still have a chance to have a baby? What will I do? Thanks!

I am taking provera (medroxyprogesterone) for hormonal imbalance...Can I still have a chance to have a baby? What will I do? Thanks!

It depends...: Provera (medroxyprogesterone) just makes the uterus bleed (like an artificial period). It doesn't typically induce ovulation (though it rarely can). So, if you don't have regular periods, you need to see a board certified reproductive endocrinologist who can test you to find out why, after which he/she can properly treat you to help you ovulate and conceive. ...Read more

I had a child 11/10 and got back on Depo-Provera january 2011 have been bleeding every since I have been bleeding for like a year now

Bleeding: Bleeding for a year is a very long time and deserves a complete gynecological evaluation. Bleeding for a prolonged time period can be caused by fluctuations in hormone levels, stress on the body, or abnormal weight (too high or too low). Please have a complete gynecological evaluation. Also please be sure your pap smear is up to date. ...Read more

I been on a Depo-Provera shot 3 times my next shot is in april next week how long it takes to have a baby how can I help it leave my system?

Wait and see: If your next shot is due in april, and you want to get pregnant, of course, don't get the next shot. Some women are fertile almost immediately 12 weeks from the last shot. Other women take 3-9 months before they are fertile. I have not heard of any way to make the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) leave and make a woman fertile faster. You will have to wait and see. ...Read more

Regular periods?: The Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot is one of the slower to reverse reversible contraceptive methods. When was last shot? If your periods are still irregular then you may not be ovulating yet. If you do have regular cycles, then try to use ovulation kits to help determine what day you ovulate. Have unprotected sex around the day you ovulate - mainly the day before and the day of ovulation. Speak w/ your doctor! ...Read more
