Depo-Provera
« on: November 05, 2009, 09:49:12 pm »

hi mommies! I gave birth last June and had my first shot of DMPA just this October. My menstruation just came today. What should I expect? Should I expect heavy bleeding? What're your experiences while on Depo-Provera? Curios mommy lang. :)

hi mommywalrus,

i experienced DMPA, after i gave birth to my 2nd child June 2000. My OB said that depends on my cycle at reaction with my body hormornes ang injectable. Some may experience heavy to light menstruation within the period of 3 months.
Since 3 months protection sya, i experience after she give me shot Sept,,,the next month wala akong menstruation(Oct) then the following month nagkaron na ako with light flow....until nag sspotting na lang sya. The doctor gave me only 1 shot since my hubby is seaman usually 2-3 months langang vacation niya here. Kaya the following year na ulit ako magpa inject...

Sometimes heavy flow sya abot 5 days..minsan light lang and it last sometimes 2 weeks...natakot din ako minsan kasi parang di nauubos, hehe puro spotting...Nakaka iritate dahil palagi akong naka wear ng pantyliner. Since regular naman ang menstruation ko after the 3 months protection eh ika 4 or 5 months back to normal na ulit ang mens ko.
 ;)

Thanks for your reply. Inoobserbahan ko pa ang period ko. Weird lang kasi wala na akong pamatay na dysmenorrhea!!! One of the perks ata ng DMPA yun. :)

ako din sis observe ko pa effect niya, i had my shot last saturday lang. sabi ng OB depende daw talaga ang effect sa reaction ng body sa gamot and sa cycle syempre ng mens natin. i think yung sa dysmenorrhea issue mo eh wala pang kinalaman ang injectable jan. sabi kasi ng OB ko may possibility daw talagang mawala ang dysmenorrhea after giving birth. laking pasalamat ko narin kasi sobrang pahirap sa akin yan every month. hehe.

hi mommies,

i gave birth last august 2008. CS ako at hindi na ako bumalik pa sa OB na nagpa-anak sakin kasi sobrang sama ng dinanas ko sa kanya. but dahil hindi nako nakapag consult about family planning, i got pregnant and miscarried january 2009. after that, wala pa din ako contraceptive kasi umalis naman ang hubby ko who is a seafarer. july 2009,i had the depo shot. palpak kasi talaga ako sa pag inom ng gamot so ito binigay sakin ng ob ko. after i had the shot, naging lagi masakit ulo ko and likod ko. then i had pimples. sa madaling araw lagi akong gutom. pero ang nakakainis, after mga 2 weeks nagstart na ako mag spotting. at hindi na sya tumigil, palakas ng palakas for 3 weeks. went back sa ob, she gave me meds para daw magstop ang spotting/bleeding. took the meds and hindi man nagstop, humina naman so ok na rin. october un expiration ng shot pero september umalis na yun asawa ko, so hindi na ako ulet nagpa inject. hindi pa ako nagkakameron ng regular/normal na menstruation since then. from very light spotting to none talaga. ngayon, uwi na pala un hubby ko ng 3rd or 4th week ng march. kaya dami ko questions..

1. can i have the depo shot again kahit yung last shot ko was july last year pa and i never had my period since then?

2. is it true na mahirap na ulet magbuntis kapag nagdepo? i want to have 2 more kids pa sana.

3. is there a way to really stop spotting while on depo? kasi diba nakakairita din na everyday ka meron? mas mahirap din mag contact..

thanks in advance mommies!  :)

safe po ba ang depo. palpak kasi talaga ko sa pag-inom ng pills at ayoko na talaga mabuntis ulit. we can't afford to have another one again. (other side of the story na un kung bakit) Nanganak ako last December 12, 2009 lang. hindi pa ko bumabalik ng ob except nung December 22, 2009 nung nilinis niya yung dressing ng tahi ko since CS ako. I had my menstruation last February 24,2010. Gusto ko sana ng ok na contraceptives kaya lang takot ako dito sa depo kasi three months daw hindi magkakaron.

i heard may bago ngaun na depo na 1 month lang yung missed period pero every month ka papashot. meron ba may alam sa inyo tungkol dito.

thanks.

@ Nuna- yung sabi na mahirap magbuntis pag nag depo hindi po totoo un...kasi ako feb2007 na operahan (ovarian cyst) tapos nung mag mens ako after the operation pnag depo ako ng OB for 6 months (twice a month pa nga yung sakin eh)..after a yr mula nung nagstart ako inject ng depo saka ako nagkaron, nung first month lang ako nag spotting, sa mga sumunod na months wala na talaga(2008). last yr nabuntis ako, gave birth last Nov..:)

and sabi nila nakakataba daw ang depo..hindi po..sabi nga ng OB ko ako daw un living proof na hindi un totoo..:)

@ sis nuna,

1. can i have the depo shot again kahit yung last shot ko was july last year pa and i never had my period since then?

-i think you can, as long as you are sure you are not pregnant. you may ask your Ob about this kasi usually, may mga tests na i-rarun yung OB mo just to make sure.

2. is it true na mahirap na ulet magbuntis kapag nagdepo? i want to have 2 more kids pa sana.
- no. depo shots does not affect a woman's fertility.

3. is there a way to really stop spotting while on depo? kasi diba nakakairita din na everyday ka meron? mas mahirap din mag contact..
-yes. may nirereseta pong gamot para magstop yung excessive bleeding. Usually naman sis, for the first three months lang ganyan. on the fourth month, dapat wala ng breakthrough bleeding. pero kung dirediretso talaga yung bleeding mo, baka hindi hiyang sa iyo ang shots.

hi sis,

Any type of hormonal contraceptive may or may not give you mood swings, weight gain, head aches, nausea, and/or pimples.

You may refer to my blog posts, review ko yun both on pill and injectables. If it will help you in any way, please refer to the links below:
