I was on Depo last year. I had a regular cycle in November of 2009. Early December we had an "oops" and I took plan B. This delayed my period by a week. I got my first injection of Depo in the middle of January. I had my next injection in April. And no period.
At the end of November I sought help from my family practioner. He prescribed ten days worth if 200mg prometrium. I rook it faithfully and no period. After waiting a few weeks I called to see him again and instead was referred to an OBGYN. His NP ran bloodwork (I assume it was fine, she never called and said she wouldn't if it was fine). She prescribed ten days of 10mg progesterone. Seven days later still no withdrawl bleeding.
What's next? I have to call to be seen again (doctor said to once I reach day 7). I'm so confused. I feel like a failure. My husband is currently deployed, but will be home in a few weeks for rest & relaxation. We don't want to risk pregnancy, I was hoping to start my pills. My doctor insisted I discontinue depo due to a history of depression/anxiety and because we want to TTC at the end of the year.
There's isn't much. You can however go on the pill, it's worked for some ladies to 'reboot' their system, me being one of those ladies. It might take one cycle, it might take 6 cycles but it's worth a shot hun. Start with that and see if it helps you.
My doctor wants my body to regulate and have s real period before starting another birth control. My husband is active duty, so time isn't ever on our side! But we want a baby in the next year, that's why the doctors were trying progesterone to start withdrawl bleeding so my cycle would hopefully return.
