Comments for this study:

MELANIE (2 years ago):

I have been on & off the Depo Provera injection for many years. In 2010 I ended up with a pulmonary embolism. I had no risk factors, other than being on depo. My pcp advises me to discontinue using the depo, but my gyn states it is safe for me & that its use had nothing to do with me developing the embolism. I love using depo, since it eliminates my menstrual cycle completely. This is great since I have excessive, painful periods. I'm torn on what to do. Opinions are appreciated.
