Question: post pregnancy bleeding
|Mr. Mom - Mon Sep 19, 2005 10:00 pm||
My Wife had our daughter the 19th of June. After the arival, the doctor gave her the depo shot. One week later she was admitted into the hospital for a possible infection of the uterus. She was treated for the infection chemicaly and a DNC was not performed. it has been exactly three months since our delivery and my wife is still bleeding, we were told she was in the 20% of women who have a reaction to the depo. My wife has faith in her doctor, but i have many concerns. thank you in advance for the help. :?:

This is from the Depo-Provera prescribing information pamphlet. You may view the document in its entirety at http://www.depo-provera.com under "Important patient information" found on the left side of the screen. I hope this helps either alleviate your concerns or give you some solid questions to ask her physician.
