Progestin pills or shots SIDE EFFECTS????

Post by Jovigal » Tue Jun 05, 2007 9:49 pm

While taking these pill or shots, did any of you experience extreme tiredness, depression, short of breath feelings? I honestly don't think I can take another pill. I have no energy during most of the day only spurts of it during the morning then I have to nap, being piled up with blankets because I'm freezing. I usually take them right before bed cause they put me to sleep within minutes.

Hey Jovigal, I am having the same problems. Been so cold I'm bundled up in blankets all night when I get home. I'm taking the PIO shots in sesame seed oil and I started having a bad skin reaction to it suddenly (after taking it for like a month), now they are switching it to Progesterone in Olive Oil. I am extrememly tired too, can barely keep my head up and I'm yawning a lot too.

thanks Bunky for responding. It makes me feel better that I'm not the only one experiencing these EXTREME symptoms. I almost felt like a panic attack coming on today but I got busy and started feeling better. Hopefully, we'll be off of these meds soon and on to a healthy, enjoyable pregnancy!
