Although I've never been on the depo for 10 years I was told by my doctor to only use the depo for 1-2 years the most, it does cause bone loss. I was on it before for 3 years and just went back on 2 months ago. It is the only birth control I like. I'm surprised you doctor didn't mention the effects the depo can have when on it for long period of time. Well I wish you the best in making you decision about birth control
Thanks very much for your comment. I am surprised myself that it has taken until now for the doctor to be concerned. I suppose I have to listen to the research that has been done on the injection and try find an alternative as soon as I can.
Thanks again Jizi
no problem..i wasn't told much about it when i was younger either, i did some reading on my own and brought it to my doctors attention when i decided to go back on. Anyway take care
