I have been on Depo-provera for about 6 months now and my PMDD is completely under control. It is a shot every three months. It feels like someone punched you in the injection spot (I prefer the leg) but it is obviously so worth it. I don't get suicidal anymore. Now I just have mild cramps and sometimes get weepy. I tried to other birth controls but they had estrogen in them that triggered severe depression for me. Just make sure you take calcium while on depo-provera so that your bones stay nice and strong. My life is so much better now. I still have mental health problems but my life doesn't fall apart every month. I think I will be able to live independently some time in the next year. Praise God.
