Progesterone cream help with Depo Provera withdrawal symptoms?
Please help as I cannot find ANY positive info anywhere. I'm on depo provera and must come off. I like it, it has completely alleviated periods, the pain associated with them and my pms and mood swings.
I had endo and a round of lupron after a lap. Then I had my son and have been on depo since he was 6 weeks old (now 2). I'm due for a shot in 3 weeks and not getting it. I can no longer tolerate the weight gain. I tried to get off the depo last year and for 3 months I suffered hideous side effects. Mood swings, unbearable joint/bone pain that left me sedentary, weight gain (even more if you can believe that) constant bleeding, anxiety... it was awful. Do I need to start using a progesterone cream now to help? I'm so terrified of these side effects but I have to find a way to cope because I MUST get off the depo. Please help.
