I am a 21 year old female, and been having the depo injection every three months since May 2012.
I have been having headaches and joint pain since then, and its driving me insane. The leg pain gets so bad that I can't sleep at night, have to get my boyfriend to rub my knees to ease the pain off, and lately its been in both knees not just the left. It sometimes comes from my hip right down to my ankle and its annoying me. I am a carer, and I am on my feet for at least 8 hours each day, so I don't know whether this is contributing to the pain but I know one of the side effects of the depo is thinning of the bones, is this what is happening to me?!
Also, what are the chances of getting pregnant on this form of contraception?!
