Depo-Provera Reviews

Show: for
Ate everything in sight!
I used this for a while but went off of it when I started gaining weight.
worked to regulate my periods and help me with fertility
Working / Worked
I didnt have a period so it was great.
didn't work, major weight gain
got me my period after 15 months of not having 1
It worked but I hated it, it made me moody, depresed, I gained weight, it gave me sensitive skin....it was not a pleasant experience.
Working / Worked
It worked because it stoped my periods all together. I was on it for three years and my Dr. was worried that I would start to have negative effects from it. Now I have been off it for a year and each month is worse than the last. But now I have no health insurance.
stopped cycle for over 3 yrs then tool 15 months to get cycle once off
Working / Worked
I have just started depo and have been on it about 1 week it is too soon to tell about the results.
