Sorry depo injection


Hi XsamieX:-)

The good news is that you're not alone having to cope with this.

You probably already know that painful heavy periods can be linked

to a number of causes: see nhs.uk

However, coming off Depo Provera has been said to be a woman's

worst nightmare. There are known side effects to stopping contraceptive


It can take from a few months to 18 months, to return to a normal

menstrual cycle. There are reports of cramping, heavy bleeding, prolonged

period, severe breast pain and more. See: menstruationresearch.org

coming off Depo Provera.

I hope this is helpful, best wishes :-) xBeryl
