depo injection

I am currently on the pill and would like to know if the depo injection has any side effects. I heard that your period stays away while you are on depo. Is this true? the pill gives me sun spots and do I also want to know if the depo will give me sun spots. Please help!!

Depo does cause periods to stay away in many women, It does not cause sun spots. Have a look under Contraception on this site for the pros and cons of the different contraceptives.

Hi every one
I was on depo three years back, stopped last year nov and still haven’ t seen my period yet, I went to a gynae to find out what was the problem and he said nothing is wrong, it’ s just that I took the injection for too long, he prescribed postoval.

Does any one know of it?
