Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "Why would u make such a awful drug plz discontinue this stuff. I know how it stops you getting pregnant you bleed every freaking day so who would have sex with you - no one. I wanted to take the time out of my day to say this medicine sucks and I hate it. I've gotten only 2 shots and I've been bleeding for 5 weeks . I just wanted to let u know that. Thanks for nothing."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I was never into birth control so I have 6 kids. My oldest 7years old. I tried depo shot after I gave birth in November to my 6th baby all natural vaginal births no epidural. This was my first time it was the shot on the booty and arm. I have had nothing but aniexty no its not my kids i never felt this way before and I gained ton of weight more than I usually do after a baby I weigh 160 I usually get down 140 3 months after I give birth. I've been bleeding nonstop. I decided I didn't like the shot I'm getting tons of mood swings more than the ones that I get from pregnancy. I'm just going to tie my tubes. It's a nightmare. It's May now so from November to May I've been bleeding. I went to check my hemoglobin its fine - its just depressing."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I was on the shot for 2yrs straight about 3yrs ago. I absolutely loved it and I would have recommended it any of my girlfriends. I didn't have one period and no cramping for 2yrs! Loved it! Not even 2 weeks after missing my last shot I became pregnant. My daughter was born in 2013, and about 2months ago I started the shot again. Worst decision of my life! I have not stopped spotting! Every damn day for almost 2 months and I'm starting to get really crampy and I've have terrible migraines. I've been having mood swings and I've never experienced anxiety so bad in my life. I would seriously consider looking into the side effects and reading up on the shot before you get it."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "Well I had my first 3 months shot on 18th January 2015 and two days after it I started bleeding, I have never stopped and the date today is 15th of may. Quite depressing since it was my first time taking contraception. I had all the possible side effect to be honest. Hot flashes at night, terrible migraines, severe back ache, fatigue, tiredness name it. There was a point i went to doctors everyday but now I got used to feeling ill which is quite sad. So you are taking a risk using Depo-Provera"

Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I am 31 yrs old. Since the birth of my first child, I've had very heavy, painful periods. Often irregular as in a couple times a month. But I have been bleeding for almost 5 months now. Three months ago, I was put on Provera 10 mg once a day. It lightened my bleeding after a few days, then I had brown discharge for a few days. But I started bleeding again even while taking the Provera. I first had a 10 day supply, then a 30 day supply, another 2 weeks, and now 2 more. But it has changed nothing. I'm bleeding and cramping nonstop and still have no answers. No fibroids, polyps, or cysts."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I have been on this shot for just about one year. I have had one period since being on it which lasted almost a month not heavy by any means, still very annoying. Not noticed any weight gain but I always go up and down give or take 3 pounds. I would recommend it everyone is different and has different side effects so it is unknown how one persons body will take to it. But worth testing it out. Hated the Pill!"

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I first started the depo shot about 2 years ago. I switched from the Mirena iud because I bled constantly and sex was often very painful. Before the iud my periods were absolutely terrible with extreme cramping and back pain. For two years I loved life with no periods, no spotting and no pain then I missed a shot. I started again about a month ago and today had very dark maroon/brown spotting? Not sure what that means."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I had my second shot about a month ago,I haven't had constant bleeding, every now and then (maybe 5 times since January) I have had spotting. I have experienced some cramps but not as bad as I usually get and I have definitely gained weight. I had sex for the first time since I started the injection and I have been getting cramps and bleeding like I used to before the injection. This has been going on for a week now. I am worried and I'm not sure if this is normal after having sex on the injection. Apart from whats happening at the moment, I personally do recommend this injection. I started it to stop the pain and just have a break from bleeding and it has done exactly what I wanted it to."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I have been bleeding for 2 months straight, nonstop. I am not a happy camper. I only got this shot to stop my cycles for a bit, but I got totally the opposite. I will not get another shot, ever."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I have been on the depo shot for about two months, about 3.5 weeks ago I started having a lot of pressure around my tail bone area, horrible cramps, way more emotional and spotting, then BAM!!! Mother nature hits with a vengeance, non stop period. yes the depo is awesome because not getting prego, but not having sex is having the same affect."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I've been having constant bleeding or just huge blood clots since I got the shot 2 weeks ago. Also, it's caused me the worst anxiety and depression I've ever experienced in my life. I would not recommend this to anyone ever..."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I'm coming off the depo shot. My second and last shot was six months ago, but it's still in my system. after my first dose of the depo shot, my periods stopped immediately. No bleeding AT ALL since then. Which I wouldn't really mind on its own, but it also intensified my already-bad anxiety. AND I gained 30lbs in three months. I'm suspecting it's the cause of my chronic upper back pain too, which i didn't have until my second shot (its worse than cramps!). I was hoping to get it out of my system so my fiance and I could have a baby soon, as if these symptoms weren't bad enough to make me want to stop. Also, I don't know what's more of a hassle, keeping stocked on pads or pregnancy tests. Ugh. But it did its job as a birth control, so..."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "The reason this shot is such an effective form a birth control is because it keeps you from sex. THAT'S RIGHT! The bleeding is so on and off that it's kept me completely abstinent! At first I thought this shot was the bomb, but seriously? I keep telling myself my body will adjust but I feel like I'm constantly on my period. It's messed up"

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I've been on this shot for a little more than a year, and at first it was fine but about halfway through my year I began having random periods of spotting. I noticed it usually began after (and sometimes DURING) sex. I haven't gained much weight or anything but bleeding during sex is NOT fun. I would recommend this form of birth control but something must be done about the irregular bleeding."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I've been on this for exactly a month now and I have been bleeding since the day I got it. Granted, I had to get the shot when I started my period but the bleeding hasn't stopped. I am heavy enough to where I have to wear a regular sized tampon. It's messing with my sex life and it's driving me insane. I'm going to get my second shot in June and if this doesn't stop I'm going to stop the shot all together."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I've been on the Depo-Provera since November 2014 and I've been bleeding ever since. It's about time for my next shot and I will not be continuing to take this medicine. Whereas it may be effective but it's costing more money buying feminine hygiene products and it's seriously affecting my sex life. And I'm over the continuous bleeding."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "I've been on depo for almost a year now. It's had its ups and down. Ups would be not having periods, no babies, and unprotected sex!!!!! Downs would be the red/brown spotting, weight gain and back pain (what I'm experiencing at the moment). The weight thing is a little weird. I usually weigh around 159-163, and I gained about 10 pounds and recently lost them from going to the gym and eating less fast foods. Overall, it's the best BC method. Keep in mind all that I described doesn't happen to all women, we all vary."

Depo-Provera (medroxyprogesterone): "This shot has saved my life. I was very hormonal with terrible painful PMS. This shot helped with all of my symptoms..including my constant back pain. I don't really think the weight gain is a big issue because I know I gained 5 pounds around my period anyways. I have energy to do more important things now and it has helped my depression significantly. It may not be for everyone but it definitely is helping me tremendously."
