Re: ? about depo provera
I have been on Depo since 1996. I honestly love it. No negative side effects. I just recently found out, by my gyne, that you shouldn't use it more than 2 years because it can cause bone loss. In order for me to stay on it I had to do a bone scan, which was totally normal. So now I have to take extra calcium or she will take me off it. Although I did have a situation a yr. ago. The nurse that had given me the inj, messed up and had most of it running down my arm. A month later I was having pregnancy symptoms(nausea, weight gain, abdominal pains and mood swings). She said it was because I didn't have the full dose and my body was trying to ovulate. I was really freaked out, but after my next inj everything was fine again.
