Depo Shot

Postby jenndola » Mon Aug 23, 2004 07:41 am

I had my first and most definitely last Depo Provera shot last November. For any that might have tried Depo...how long did it take for your cycles to get back to normal? I want to TTC in November, when my prescription insurance kicks in, but I'm worried I'll still be out of whack, since I'm showing no signs of normalizing.

I have an appointment with the peri tomorrow to discuss another effort, so everyone think good thoughts for me! I'm all atwitter!

Jenn...

Depo has a different effect on each person. It tends to vary women to women on to when you will get your cycles back and or get regular again....

Thanks, Catherine. I don't know why I'm so nervous about this silly appoinment with the number of times I've seen my peri. Actually, yes I do. It's because I wanted to get pregnant in January and he put me off for a few months...and then when he said okay, it was with the addition of Enbrel, which is ridiculously expensive, so now we're waiting for insurance to kick in...

I think I'm almost expecting him to say something else that will delay it even further. But it's been 3 years since my last m/c, and I'm so ready for this!

I'm laying 10 to 1 odds that I end up crying at the appointment over something stupid, just because I'm on pins and needles. I hate being such a girl sometimes!

Wait...did I say tomorrow? Geez...I'm so excited, I'm a day ahead of myself. It's on Wednesday. I have to suffer through 10 hours of work tomorrow before I go to my appointment on Wednesday. Okay, I obviously need to go do something to get my mind off all of this.

Jenn, I used to be on Depo, and when I started having problems TTC, my docs wouldn't even discuss infertility or do an infertility work-up until after 18 months had passed since my last shot. They said that it could take up to 18 months to clear your system! ACK!

Hopefully, that won't be an issue for you, but it might be something to talk to your doctor about. Good luck!
