Do any of you have experience with depo provera?
I've had ridiculously heavy/long periods getting worse for the last year- as in 9+ day of bleeding, can bleed right through the biggest OB tampon in 20 minutes. Needless to say this has interfered with training a lot- can't swim during my period at all, have to interrupt runs multiple times...not to mention I'm fatigued and dizzy most of the time (and really freaking cranky).
Went to see a new doc today and she suggested depo- I was so anxious for SOMETHING that I got the shot before I left the office....but now I'm looking around the web and I'm getting concerned about the apparent impact on aerobic capacity that some women report with hormonal contraceptives. I'm hoping maybe it's not the same with progestin-only meds, but was just wondering if anyone has experience/advice.
Thanks in advance!
