I am 22 years old and am worried to death, I need support from other Depo users who have also had symptoms like I have. I had a child at a young age and the pregnancy was healthy with no problems. After my daughter I used Depo for a year I was able to conceive twice, but wasn't ready to continue the pregnancy. So of course I had two abortions with no scarring or nothing. My periods returned like normal and I know with my heart that my body would have been able to conceive again. I know someone who had more abortions than me and ended up okay physically. I got on Depo years after the abortions which I am so freaking ashamed of because I regret them terribly now. Especially since I am now having some infertility issues of some sort.
I really don't think the abortions caused this because they did not throw my cycle off or cause any physical symptoms like what happened after Depo. After using Depo for 3 months only starting in February 2014, I got off and was truly ready to conceive, I guess life is never on your schedule. FML! After getting off in April 2014, I missed my period for two months, May and June. During this time period my chest always would hurt and was swollen. The pain in my chest has subsided some and I got my period back in July 2014. I have had a period every month sense, they are some what irregular by a few days... My period was 26 days before Depo but after it went to 92 Days for ( May and June combined, when my period hadn't returned yet) (July) was 31 Days and (August) was 27 days, it seems as though my body is slowing dropping to the 26 days mark like how I was before Depo. I see some positive in that, but I lose hope when my dude is in my ear saying. "It's been 5 months and you're not getting pregnant" Will some women explain your success stories to me I am in need of some hope and encouragement. I am also taking prenatal pills to ensure a healthy womb when the baby does decide to attach to my uterus :) still hopeful.
I just need to feel as if my Uterus, Ovaries, Eggs, Fallopian Tubes are not giving up on me. I have felt less than a women every since the onset of this ordeal. I also with my friends don't want to hear anyone say they are pregnant to me. It makes me so jealous. Please send baby dust and positive hopes my way! Thanks women! I know you all aren't doctors, I just wanted to reach out to see if anyone has had the a similar experience as me and could offer some helpful advice.
