Has anyone else experienced depression from Depo-Provera usage?

I've be using Depo-Provera as a contraceptive method since March 7, 2007; as a consequence, I've have two injections, and I'm almost to own a third subsequent month.

However, I've be experiencing constant spotting, and some bleeding, since right until that time my second injection on May 30th. Even worse, I've be experiencing depression and discomfort as powerfully, which both started to go down right around when I started to spot and bleed.

I hold bipolar II disorder, for which I appropriate Tegretol (a mood stabilizer), so Depo-Provera is one of the best birth-control methods for me because it doesn't interact next to Tegretol (the Pill, et al, do). But it's seeming to incentive a depressive episode, and I don't want to risk my mental vigour at adjectives.

I'm not sure what I should do. Should I keep hold of getting injections and enjoy my Tegretol increased, or should I stop getting injections and find another non-hormonal method? *My boyfriend and I own be monogamous for 10+ months, so condoms are out of the sound out.*

Do strapless bras pass as much support as bras next to straps?

I have one shot of Depo-Provera, and it freshly around did me contained by. I spotted constantly, and the depression be horrible. I have suicidal thoughts, and it also took more than a year for adjectives the effects of the Depo to move my system. I would recommend to anyone who have problems beside it to take stale of it.

"Condoms are out of the question"? Just because you're monogamous doesn't be set to you can't use condoms. If it's a personal nouns of your boyfriend, than that's self-centred. Your well-being is MUCH more critical than "it doesn't consistency as appropriate!"

What do you regard as Girls?

Oh girl, I can categorically sympathize beside where on earth you're coming from. I've be on Depo for almost three years, and the first 9 months or so individual on it be HELL for me. I be diagnosed as bipolar II final year, and I can report to you that the worst time for me emotionally be those first months on Depo. I spotted on and stale for those months as resourcefully. Depo is really the solitary substitute for me as economically because I enjoy high-ranking blood pressure, so I really don't hold any other choices.

However, I'll voice this. If you can stick it out, within's a likeliness that the symptoms will dissipate. I haven't have swings resembling those previous ones since, and my time of year have completely stopped altogether (I spot I don`t know once or twice a year). I vastly much savour this method, but it's truly not for everyone. If you reason you can craft it through another round, I'd speak walk for it. It be after my third shot that things started to settle down down for me. But if you contemplate the depression is dicey, as surrounded by giving you suicidal thoughts, later it's worthwhile to discontinue use.
