I have used Depo for approximately 8 years and LOVED it. That's right, LOVED IT!! My last injection was in May of this year. My cycles are starting to level out now. I don't understand why there are so many people who hate it and claim that it has ruined their lives. There is a large disclaimer in every box as well as side effects printed on the pharmacy leaflet that is stapled to each pharmacy bag. If the injections were given in the doctors offices (I did my own injections), the doctors and nurses I am sure were able to answer any questions.

I skipped one injection in late 1999 and immediately got pregnant. Three and a half months later after the baby was born, I got pregnant again. I have been on the injection since then.

I knew very well that the side effects were possible infertility and delayed regulation, weight gain, nausea, vomiting, etc.

I am very sorry that some of you out there have had problems with Depo, however, I cannot understand the aggervation when side effects, etc are so easy to understand and research
