Has Anyone Used Depo-Provera For Birth Control Before PCOS DIAGNOSIS

Has Anyone Used Depo-Provera For Birth Control Before PCOS DIAGNOSIS

I read that there are studies that have tried to link PCOS to Depo-Provera users. I took depo for 5 years in my 20’s. After seeing numerous drs and specialist I was diagnosed with PCOS at 35 (now 43). Just wondering how many of you also used depo.

Birth Control

Birth Control

Has anyone got on the pill to see if it helps get your hormones or track ? Or should i avoid them ?

A myPCOSteam Member said:

I never felt right on any type of birth control, eventually I ended up finding a doctor that treats my hormones individually. I take progesterone to raise mine, which in turn forces testosterone down… read more

Abnormal Bleeding !

Abnormal Bleeding !

Hello Everyone!

Has anyone else experienced prolonged bleeding while having PCOS?? I’ve had this “period” since December 2017 and was recently put on birth control to stop the bleeding due to becoming anemic. I’ve had a Pap smear and it came back “normal”. Is there something out there (besides birth control) I can take to stop this issue?

Thank you,
Monica

Provera+Clomid??

Provera+Clomid??

Has anyone had a successful pregnancy after taking provera and clomid? I have an irregular cycle so my doctor prescribed provera(medroxyprogesterone) to start my cycle and Clomid(letrozole) to increase ovulation. He also has me taking prenatal vitamins. Has anyone ever had any luck after the first time?

No Periods

No Periods

Anyone else NEVER get a period?

I only do when I take Provera.

I have already tried Metformin, Vitex, weight loss, exercise, clean eating. Still have never had a cycle on my own.

I just started taking inositol, so I'll give that a shot for a few months to see if that helps at all. Any other ideas? Is there anything you have been able to do to naturally get a period?

A myPCOSteam Member said:

I went 9 years with out a period. i was on birth control for most of that. I got my tubes tied back in December because I decided one kid was enough for me. after 4.5 months I went to an appointment… read more
