DEPO IS HORRIBLE

Posted by: sandbee22 on Fri Sep 14, 2007

I went through the same thing with the depo shot. I WAS ON IT FOR THREE STRAIGHT YEARS. Just for the doc (health deparment that is) to ask me to sign a form stating that I knew about the risks of the depo shot and loss in bone density. Apparently, they were supposed to take me off of the depo a year and a half before they told me about the risks.

I immediately got off of it, and had periods that would last for 2 months at a time. It ruined my daily routine, my love life with my partner, and my sanity for a long time. Finally, I got BACK on birth control pills just to regulate my cycles. After 6 months of BCP I quit those as well and ended up with 28 day cycles ever since.
