Depo-Provera injection

Ok so the contraception was ok for me. I gained a healthy weight (which for me is something that I’ve been trying to do for the longest time). I didn’t have to worry about buying pads every month, neither had to worry about getting pregnant. However the side effects weren’t worth it,the migraines still happened,the back aches were still happening and on occasion she would be dry. I am no longer on it now as I didn’t want to be on it for any longer than year just because it can effect your fertility,I’m still waiting on a period (haven’t had a period in 2 years) and boobs have become very tender since I’ve stopped. The risks of the injection causing brittle bones was a major factor as to why I stopped getting it too.

Experience coming off Depo-Provera injection

I have noticed a change into my body since after using the depo-injection. For example still waiting on my period does scare me a little bit and how dry she has got. But I’m glad I stopped it as I’m trying to help my body figure itself out naturally
