  • i have had bad experiences with the depo. it takes the calcium out of your bones which makes them weak as the pp said. i was on it for a long time and after i got off it, i went through some kind of false pregnancy or something. my periods were non-exsistent until i started taking the YAZ b.c. if i were you, i would get back on the pill or start taking some other form of b.c. but thats me.
