Hi, this is my first time, just joined. I am 35years old with two amazing grown up children. After a third pregnancy went wrong I went on depo provera injections every three months (periods stopped) but had to come off it after getting a pulmonary embolism. After a few months started to have terrible pains in my abdomen and groan. After going back and forth to docs and hospitality I opted to be sterilised and stop all contraception. But the last 2 years have been excruciating. I was diagnosed with endo which had been seen when I was sterilised but no one told me. I've since found out that the depo injection causes blood clots and can cause endo. Women are only supposed to stay on depo injection for 2 years, I was on it for 12. I'm at the lowest point I have ever been in my life. It's affecting my family, my relationship and my job. My boss (manchester city council) are dismissing me on medical grounds do I really don't know how much ore I can take. I'm in pain all of the time and during my monthly, I can't even explain.
