DEPO-SUBQ PROVERA 104: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Birth Control “Not only did I gain ten pounds in just a few months after maintaining a steady weight for years, after a few months the lining of my vaginal walls began to thin making sex really uncomfortable. I also have to get up to pee three times a night on average, which has never happened before and is really inconvenient. In order to combat the heavy periods I was getting after the first month, my doctor put me on Junel Fe as well, and that seems to be helping, but I had to go on a SECOND form of birth control that required taking a pill daily just because this worked so poorly and had so many side effects. Also noticed significant anxiety/hormonal fluctuations at random with zero cause since I’ve been on this.”

For Birth Control “Just recently have got Depo subQ provera for the first time–(at the same time my best friend has gotten the regular Depo-Provera shot)–I haven’t had any side effects: no mood swings, no weight gaining, nothing. While she’s had some mood swings going on. I don’t know if it’s because it’s a different Depo or just because I’m a different person, but I’d recommend this to people. Plus it’s a much smaller needle that goes in your stomach instead of your arm.”
