Comments for this study:
MELANIE (11 months 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.

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.
