  • In late October 2010 I suffered a massive stroke of the right MCA of my brain. I had 3 blood clots in the rt. side paralizing the whole Lt. side of my body speach, facial, mind. It was just terrifying. The team of ER,Surgeon's and Neurologists say was caused with out a doubt from Depo-Provera birth cantrol. I am a 25 year old female with no prior health history. Dont smoke dont drink. Two healthy deliveries both of my children. If it was not for my daughter and husband finding me I would have died laying on the floor so completely helpless. It was the first and last depo shot ever. We sould get together on this one and save some lives, some mothers, wives etc.... young gilrs stay away from this method there are other ways!

    first I am so sorry to hear about how your life is turned to this from depo. I took depo for over 15 years. I stop seven years ago. Since that time my life and my body have deteriorated. I have been diagnosed with 3 or 4 types of arthritis. I have been diagnosed with geriatric osteoarthritis. I know that feeling of feeling like you've lost your entire life. I feel like I've lost part of myself or actually all of myself......and I feel like the medical community isn't listening to us....I recently fractured my hips from No apparent trauma. I no longer work and I really miss my work. Although I'm sorry to hear about what is going on with you I am glad that you are there it makes me feel less alone.

    I am 41 years old and i suffered from a stroke May of 2014. Doctors did every test there was and have ruled that it was caused by the Depo shot. I had been on this shot off an on for over 12 years. This was a awful experience I first was having headaches which was being chucked off as migraines. If u start having bad headaches go in and ask for a contrast CTscan. I think there should be more warnings and more understanding of how long u should take the shot. More about the side affects. I have six kids and it really scared me and still does.
