Wow! And this has been going on for six to seven years? I'm really surprised none of her doctor's have considered stopping the Depo Provera for a time to see if all the side effects stop. Surely
she can use something other for birth control for two months such as abstinence, using condoms and spermicide, using an UID. It is a lot easier than it sounds.
