Comments for this study:

MELANIE (1 year 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 (3 weeks ago):

  • I've had all over pain for 4 months, starting with pains in left abdomen, spreading to left leg, upper back, and then right abdomen. MRI's,xrays,blood work all shows normal. Physical activity and stress worsens symptoms. Seen hernia doctor said was normal, Neurologist diagnosed me with high anxiety and put me on Cymbalta. Primary has me on the cyclobenzaprine for the pain which I was told to only take at night because I have extreme fatigue. My pain has decreased tremendously since being on the Cymbalta but now I have found my left nipple to leak white fluid and blood when stimulated, noticed it while showering.My left breast and area around breast seems extremely sore.
