Hello, how do I stop the depoprovera-induced bleeding?
I am 27yrs old. Before depo-provera I was perfectly healthy.
I've been on depo for 1 year, my last shot was Oct. 12, 2011 but to this day (4 months later!) I am still bleeding.
Last month my Gyn gave me premarin (estrogen
) pills to stop the bleeding, but didn't work. If anything, it increased the bleeding.
Now recently he gave me Provera (progesterone
) 10mg pills, to take till bleeding stops. I am on Day 4 and I am still bleeding. Also, if anything the bleeding is MORE
What do I do? Continue the provera? I don't think i can because the side fx are intolerable (I have been so emotional lately, just crying for no apparent reason.)
Most importantly, how do I stop the depo-induced bleeding?
