I've taken depo before. This new version of depo with the shorter needle. First one left an indention. They blew it off. The second one also left a permanent indention but also has prolonged pain that comes and goes. Any idea as to what could be the reason and should I be concerned?
You need to ask for the injection to be given into your buttock, rather than the arm, if that's where they're giving it.
You also need to swap buttocks for each injection. That will stop them becoming concave (which mine did) & leading to more pain.
It's normal to hurt for a few days after you get it.
