^ wow thanks!

you're welcome!

pero sige, post na din natin dito para sa mga ibang readers.

Injectables PROs:

1.) To some women, nag-stop talaga ang period.
2.) Mababa ang risk na magkaroon ng pelvic inflammatory diseases, ectopic pregnancies and functional ovarian cyst kapag naka-depo shot ang isang babae.
3.) Mas matipid ang depo shots. sa halagang P100, good ka na for 3 months. At hindi mo na kelangan ng pads every month dahil napipigilan din nito ang menstruation.
4.) You do not need to remember taking it everyday, and at the same time. You just have to go back to your OB or a health care specialist every 3 months or when your shot will expire.
5.) Hindi siya nakakaabala sa love making.
6.) May be safe for breastfeeding mothers when used as directed.

CONs:

1.) Karamihan ay tumataba dahil sa pagbabago ng appetite at metabolism.  >:(
2.) Sa ibang babae, dumadami ang pimples. Sa iba naman paisa isa lang ang labas, pero malalaki!  >:(
3.) Mood swings.
4.) You may be at a higher risk of bone loss.
5.) It can cause irregular bleeding to other women.
6.) Loss of libido
7.) preggy symptoms.

^ very nice thirdysmom.  ;)

gulat lang ako sa price mo of 100/shot/3mos. bakit OB ko, 1000 singil sakin. excluding consultation fee pa.

tsaka totoo yung sa calcium, kase when my OB used injectables on me, she also prescribed daily intake of calcium.

tapos dun sa appetite, yung iba nga totoo nagkakagana. ako baligtad, nawawalan ako gana kumain minsan. which is good. haha para pumayat naman ako. hehe other than that, yun lang effects nakikita ko with my 3yrs with depo.

Hi mommy keih,

Thank you.

Naku, sorry po, nakalimutan kong banggitin DEPO TRUST po pala yung P100. yun po yung ipinalit sa akin ng OB ko kasi phase out na daw ang depo provera (nagtanong din ako sa mga mercury stores sa amin at ganun din sinabi kaya nag depo trust na din ako). Sorry for the confusion  mga moms :)

Yung depo provera ko naman po before costs me around a thousand din, pero kasama na consultation.

Yung sa bone loss, sa box mismo ng depo provera ko nabasa. disclaimer nila. Buti ikaw mommy keih, humina appetite. sa akin parang steoids ang effect. Hyper sa activities, hyper din appetite  ;D itinigil ko na lang.

ah ok lang sis. :) badtrip naman talaga yang depoprovera ang lapot! ang sakit pag ininject. although mas konti sya sa depotrust. pero atleast depotrust mabilis iinject kahit marami.

ok na yun sis, may activities ka naman eh.

^ other than that sis, wala nako napansing changes sakin. sa iba marami. yung migraine ko, still there. hehe di nawala. pero sabi ng OB ko, some women daw after giving birth medyo naglelessen ang migraine attacks. so i guess dahil sa nanganak ako hindi dahil sa injectables.

^ pa-add lang ako ng info sis ha?

kapag kasi may migraine, hindi talaga inaadvise na mag-pills. lumalala lang yung migraine. yung sa officemate ko naman nagtrigger ang migraine dahil sa sa BCP, kahit dati namang wala siyang ganung case.

Hi sis nhojiaz,

If you are religiously taking your pills, you can have the injection anytime you want. No need for you to stop or wait for your period. as long as regular yung pills mo, hindi ka nagmiss at lalong hindi ka buntis. pero some women prefer to have it during the first 4 days of their period.

^depende po yun sa brand. The cheapest I know is Depo Trust. It costs P107.00 sa mercury. Other brands like depo-provera may cost you P500-P1000. But as far as I know Depo provera is already phased out.

sisses i-badly need your help!

this is the scenario: sad my first shot mar or apr. supposedly babalik ako for my 2nd shot june 12. di po ako nkablik. sa 3months na yun like other moms me mga side effects na nararamdaman weight gain, headaches, mga masasakit na buto, spotting pero di ako nawalan ng period every month. after june 12 ag "churva"
 kami ni husband between june 13-19 pero we used condoms kasi nga aware ako na til june 12 lang effect ni injectables. 20-25 bakamte ang beauty kasi nsa cebusi husband. june 26 na ulit na kami nagka "churvahan" but still we used condoms...

now,  i had my last perod june 8-10 or something like that. regular ang period ko before my 1st shot. and in betwenn sa 3mos na yun naging irregular pero meron pa rin every month medyo delay nga lang. based sa last period ko dapat meron na ko period ngayong july 2nd week...ang problem WALA PA! sobrang natatakot ako na bka positive kung mag PT ako. kaya todo research ako kung me effect pa ba yung injectbles kaya delay ang period ko o in-denial stage ako dahil i really cannot afford to have our 3rd baby!!! 1yr old pa lang bunso ko...

please enlighten me sisses.... especially those who experienced the same thing...  :'(

^hi sis,

most women experience delay on their period right after getting off the depo shot. It doesn't matter how long you've been having it or how many shots you've had. It is possible na nadedelay lang siya dahil yung contents nung depo shot does not wear off easily sa katawan nating mga babae. It may take weeks, months or gaya nung iba--years ang binilang before mgkaroon ng regular period. Nagkaspotting ka ba in between the end of June and second week of July? Kung oo, then that's the period you've been waiting for. Pero kung hindi ka din nag-spot, you can wait for a good week or two, then have yourself tested using a PT (para makasiguro lang).

You mentioned when you made love, you used barrier naman di ba? I dont think you should be worried provided that you used a backup method.

Dont stress yourself too much sa paghihinty ng period mo. That can also delay it..

I hope I've helped you.. God bless! :)

An update to my Depo shot experience... :)

I have been on Depo since last year, around early November ata. I had some bleeding that month that lasted for two weeks. Then after that................WALA NA. As in! I don't know if it's because I'm still breastfeeding but I haven't gotten my period back. It's been almost a year. Mukhang ganon ang effect sa ibang ladies on the shot.
And... bumochog ako ng sobra since last year. I lost weight agad after giving birth. Pero hindi na ako bumalik sa pre-baby weight ko. Ang lakas kong kumain! Again, I don't know if it's because I'm breastfeeding. :)) lol
I also get migraine attacks, like once or twice a week. I don't know if it's because of Depo or tumaas lang ang grado ng mata ko. :)) But I've had migraines even before I got pregnant. Mas madalas lang ngayon.
But I guess it's better safe than sorry. :) Tiisin na lang ang migraine kesa mabuntis pa ako ulit! :)) Gotta wait three years before we make a baby again! CS mommy kasi ako. :)
