Is anyone else trying Depo Provera to try to stop their periods, to lessen hormonal migraines?
I’m 4 months in (1 month into my second shot). I’ve been spotting the whole time. The first shot was bad, I felt like I was getting more migraines. I just got my period (not spotting but an actual period). I had a migraine on Sunday but I’ve had several days migraine free this week. I have to use a progesterone only method of birth control because my migraines are mostly Aura.
I also got a night guard. I clench my teeth pretty badly and when I recently broke a tooth and was clenching on the broken tooth, I started getting pain in my whole head and face and I couldn’t tell if it was a migraine or clenching pain. The night guard helps too, I even use it during the day if I feel a headache coming on.
Anyway, fingers crossed on the Depo Provera. This week is giving me some hope. I kind of don’t care if I constantly have spotting, as long as it’s not a migraine. Would love to hear from others experiences.
