What is the difference between Depo-Provera and the new Depo-SubQ Provera 104?
Besides it having 31% less hormone, what is the main difference? What can less hormone do for me? Is it just more effective? Are the side effects the same?
Asked by Burl Walczynski 4 months ago.
OK, subQ means under the skin if I'm not mistaken, so I'm going to guess it's an implant, which will gradually introduce the hormones, instead of giving it all to you in one big bang? I used Depo-Provera the shot and had horrible side effects from it. I became very easily aggitated (and I'm normally very even keeled, even during my pregnancies), gained 30 lbs in TWO WEEKS, and had problems concieving after I discontinued it (took me over a year...and was always too fertile before it...lol). It also caused me to have one continuous period. I have talked to others, and actually went to a depo support site and chatted with other girls that had similar problems. Just do your research and make sure you're informed before you use it. I doubt it's more effective, because I think the shot is 99.99%. Less hormone would always be good it seems....healthier. If you're already on the shot and have no problems, why change? If you're considering this as your first birth control choice, reconsider!! The BC pill has been around for decades, is just as effective if used properly, and has minimal side effects. Answered by Angel Teske 4 months ago.
Depo-subq Provera 104 Answered by Kathryne Necochea 4 months ago.
SubQ 104 is more effective than the original DPMA. Beyond that, there is very little difference, aside from the amount of MPA the preloaded syringe contains and the needle size itself. Side effects are the same or similar as to be expected with DPMA; ranging from irregular periods or spotting to cessation of menses altogether; as well as weight gain, skin reactions, headache, and bone mineral density loss. PS - SubQ 104 is not an implant. It is a 4x annual injection administered by into the thigh or abdomen, subcutaneously (under the skin), with a very fine needle.

Depo is probably going one among the main helpful styles of beginning administration, besides the undeniable fact that it additionally comes with the main component effects. you may having recognizing for an entire three hundred and sixty 5 days, and it could additionally take a three hundred and sixty 5 days for you era to return returned after quitting. it is diverse for each guy or woman.

Has anyone tried the new and improved Depo?
I am referring to the Depo-subQ Provera 104 Injection. It is suppose to be like the original Depo but with less side-effects. Is this true? source: http://contraception.about.com/od/prescriptionoptions/a/depoprovera.htm

I was on it for 2 years. The first shot i got was really painful (it was the older version) but I started the new one when it switched and I loved it. Its a much smaller shot in the "fat" of your stomach (very minimal bruising), is not painful, and I did not get as emotional or gain a lot of weight. Plus the chances of getting pregnant were much lower. I believe when I was taking it, it had a 99.99-100% rate, though I do not know if that is true now since i was on it a couple years ago. I also did not have my period WHICH WAS AWESOME. and contrary to popular belief, it is NOT bad for you to not have your period. the ONLY problem that I encountered when I was taking it was when I missed a couple appointments and basically had to restart the shot 3 times. When you start a new birth control, chances are you will get more emotional. When i restarted it a few times, I became emotional and took a break from birth control because it was to much for me. Constantly stopping and restarting birth control played too much on my hormones, but if you make your appointments (only every 3 months) you shouldn't have this problem. I never went back on because I wanted to get pregnant, or i would be on depo now. Overall, I LOVED the shot and highly recommend it, but you should really talk it over with your doctor to find out if it is best for you since I clearly do not know your medical history. From my personal experience with it for 2 years, as well as several friends still currently on it, it is a great birth control. Answered by Oda Quilindrino 4 months ago.

Good luck, your right the Depo is the Devil. I had a friend with the same situation and it took her 2 years to conceive her second baby. If after a few months you have no success I would go to my GYN to make sure you are ovulating. Answered by Reena Stalworth 4 months ago.

I took this shot about 4 years. I gained lots of weight. Not only did it increase my appetite, I lost my desire for sex.

I recently got a depo shot for controlling my periods.

According to her, a small dose stops periods, and a large dose stops periods and pregnancy risk. But if the small dose stops periods, doesn't it make sense that pregnancy risk would also go away because of the lack of ovulation? One cannot get pregnant if they are having no periods, correct? Answered by Kayce Declouette 4 months ago.
•Depo Provera Injection: The original Depo Provera formula must be injected into a muscle and is injected into either the buttock or upper arm. You must have a shot 4 times a year (every 11 to 13 weeks) to maintain Depo Provera’s high effectiveness rate, and you are protected from pregnancy immediately after receiving each dose. This option contains 150 mg of medroxyprogesterone acetate. •Depo-subQ Provera 104 Injection: This is the newer version of the original Depo shot. Depo-subQ Provera 104 contains 31 percent less hormone than the original Depo shot (104 mg of medroxyprogesterone acetate). Because it has a lower dose of progestin, it may lead to fewer progestin-related side effects. The subQ stands for subcutaneous, which means this newer shot only has to be injected under the skin (not into a muscle), so it has a smaller needle and may cause less pain. Depo-subQ Provera 104 must be injected into the thigh or abdomen 4 times a year (every 12 to 14 weeks). It also provides immediate pregnancy protection. Both protect against pregnancy.

I'm thinking of self-administering my Depo Provera shot. I've been on it for over a year now and am tired of scheduling doctor appointments all the time. I know that it's possible to self-administer, I just can't seem to find anywhere that tells me how to go about doing it. Also, is it more cost-efficient? Right now, I'm uninsured (mom's insurance dropped me since I'm not a student and I'm not eligible to apply at work till this fall) and it's going to cost me $250 to go to my doctor and get the shot on Friday. Any help is very much appreciated. Answered by Janina Liesman 4 months ago.

This $250 covers the shot and the doctor's visit. I've read of other people self-administering the shot, and infact there were articles released in 2005 stating that they made Depo Provera able to be self-administered. There is also the new Depo SubQ Provera 104 which can be injected into the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. I just need to know how to obtain it. Thanks for all the help so far. Answered by Ian Bevell 4 months ago.
In our office, we have some people who self administer Depo, but they are usually doctors or nurses themselves. If you have someone trained to do injections that you know can give it to you, then ask your doc. She can write you a prescription for Depo that you just pick up at the pharmacy. Depo injections are 1mL of liquid ( that's a lot in terms of injection) so they may not want you to self administer unless you have some one trained to help you. In terms of cost, theoretically it could be cheaper to self administer, since most doctor's office's not only bill for the medication but for the actually act of injecting it too.

Well, you just need to be trained how to self administer injections. Diabetics do it all the time. Giving DepotProvera isn't quite as easy though, because you need to use a larger longer needle and give it into a big muscle like the thigh, or preferably the buttock. You have to know where to do that so you don't hit a nerve or major blood vessel $250 for a doctor just to give you a shot? That's extortion!!. Unless it include a years supply of Depot Provera, in which case it's just robbery. I'm a GP in Canada and can only bill the health care system $10 for giving an injection. Answered by Nicholle Aiken 4 months ago.
Well, you can't get it with out a prescription, and you can't get the prescription with out going to the doctor. Not to mention, where are you gonna get the needle, cause it doesn't come in one. Either way you are gonna have to pay for it, to save money you could try to apply for what ever your state calls medicaid.
