From this study (2 days ago):
Nipple pain for about a week almost at end of depo cycle
From this study (1 week ago):
I was given depo provera injection whilst pregnant before doctor sent me for a blood test (same day) which concluded I was already pregnant.
From this study (1 month ago):
I have high crp level of 70 and just want to know if the depo injection could have something to do with it.
Moomin on Feb, 6, 2014:
My daughter's CRP level is also 70 and she has been on Depo for 18 months. Do you know if this drug affects the CRP level as she has had another blood test today, so fingers crossed it's lower this time.

I took depo for 2 years and when I stopped I was diagnosed with PCOS, HOWEVER I lacked cysts on my ovaries. The longer I dealt with PCOS, small cycts finally started to appear over the past decade. I believe without a doubt That Depo had everything to do with it.
