Female question (men read at your own risk)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I know some women get ill at the begining of their cycle but can women become ill at the end of their cycle? Without getting too personal I had recently got off the birth control DepoProvera. Aunt Flo has been visiting for a month now which I've heard is normal after stopping Depo. I noticed today it seems to be tapering off (praise the Lord) but I've been feeling really cruddy today. I think I might even have a fever. Could the change in hormones be making me sick?

Absolutely in my opinion. I have horrid periods (and PCOS) It's not uncommon for me to cramp and feel aweful a week or two before my period up to a few days afterwards.

I was warned about reading this topic, yet I did anyway.

I'm sorry I have no self control.

^ But you have(had) problems anemia, so that makes a lot of sense.

luvmycat - If I understand this correctly, you said you've been bleeding for a month? If that is the case, get to your doctor and get a bit of blood work done. You could be, and in fact it would be amazing if your weren't, a little anemic. Have them check B12 while they're at it.

Sometimes I can tell when I'm ovulating as I can feel out of sorts.

Recently I have been mored tired at the very start of my period. That might be menopausal though...

I get very tired as well for the two days before my period starts, and being premenopausal as well I have really light ones where I feel fine, or really heavy ones where I feel very ill...

About a year ago my cycle changed and along with it I would get nauseous the night before my period. I wouldn't get sick but just feel like I would. Your body could just be changing since you are getting older and b/c you came off the pill.

I think something happens to my immune system before my period. Now, I don't have my uterus anymore so I don't get Aunt Flo, but I always noticed that I would get a head cold or some other kind of respt. virus in that 48 hour time frame before during after.....

I was on Depo for 2 years, i loved never getting my period. but (trying not to go into too much detail here) while i was on it i would occasionally spot. i got off because the clinic i was going to get the shot told me that there was a new study that showed depo can cause bone density loss in women who have been on it for 2 years or more. so i stopped the shots. i bled for a month(or more), and literally AS SOON as i missed the shot, it started. and before i started getting Depo, i never got cramps or anything like that when my period started. after, i had cramps. & they were really bad the first couple times i got my period after stopping the shot. it gets better though. its been almost 3 years since ive stopped Depo, and im back to never getting cramps. btw, that month i was bleeding for, i felt crappy the whole time.

I SOOO don't miss my peroid (one perk of being pregnant ) I always had bad peroids and would be real crampy and sick. Your body is probally trying to adjust to the change in hormones, but a month seems like a long time. I would go to the Dr. just to make sure everything is ok. Rather be safe then sorry.

Hello , although im only 16 i have had periods for almost 7 years , and have been on near every birth control under the sun (please note i did not go on birth control to stop me getting pregnant but because i have PCOS and Endrometreosis along with a swollen ovary)

I was on the depo for maybe 13/14 months , i was the youngest at my doctors to take it and they were worried my bone density would suffer , i gained a little weight on it but the main problem was server migraines.. so i had to come off it..

When i stopped it my periods were(still are) incredably erratic bleed heavy here and there , then no period for like 2 month ect..

And before i Aunt flo (also known as aunt erma by my college mates) i vomit at least once , feel nauseus and also emotional.. some times with a migraine or cramping.

Doctors are usually hesisistant to treat period trouble within a year of coming off depo unless your heavy and have been on for ages ect. they say it takes a year (or upto a year) for your body to regulate after the depo/

Yeah that post was a bit depressing lol i hate the gyno side of my body

I think you should go to the doctors and explain your situation , it might be good to have your Bp checked and also your blood counts to check for anemia

Hope aunt flo goes away soon for you
