Depo-Provera injection

Was on depo for about 3 years following being on the combined pill for 15 years. The doctor would no longer prescribe the injection to me as they said I'd need a break. I had no periods while taking the injection, which was great! Also, no other side effects except no sex drive.

Experience coming off Depo-Provera injection

I wish I had known in advance how long it would take to get my cycle back after taking depo - 5 months for my period to return and cycles are still settling a year later... I have now discovered I have an underlying health condition which being on hormonal contraceptives for many years has been masking.
