Anyone Have Problems Years Later Post Depo Shot?

My sis got her first shot of Depo when she was a teen. She never went back for another one. Her period came back irregular but then just disappeared. It's been about 5 years and her body is still messed up. She developed other problems with her 'lady area' as well and no doctor can find anything wrong except inflammation. ANyone experience this?? I think the shot may have caused her to develop vulvodynia or something.

Yeah, Depo is kinda sketchy to me. I was on it for four years and had little problems with it during using it. But it just freaked me out because about 3 years after my last shot, I still was not having periods! They say it usually stays in your body for a year or so, but dang. Not having periods for so long was nice - but I agree with you that they are a natural part of our lives that we need to experience. :) It was SO nice when I finally bled again and felt like a healthy woman.



There's lots of forums out there about Depo and the problems women have had with it, may be worth looking into?

Well periods are a natural part of our lives I don't understand why people would put harmful chemicals into their bodies that end up causing more problems. :(

That's odd after 5 years the meds should have completely worked their way out of her system. They filter threw the liver, and after a few months should be gone. I have been on Depo for over a year, and I welcome the lack of periods. I used to have terrible painful cramps, for 5 days out of the month I couldn't leave my bed. Depo was a lifesaver to me, no cramps, no bleeding, and I wouldn't care if my period never came back.
