Depo Provera

Pfizer, Depo-Provera is an injected progestin-only reversible contraceptive for women administered at intervals of three months. The main ingredient in Depo-Provera is progestogen, and prevents fertilization by stopping the ovaries from releasing eggs and by causing the cervical mucus to thicken, therefore changing the uterine lining, making it more difficult for sperm to penetrate into the uterus.

Since the release of Depo Provera, many women have contacted Erin complaining of serious side effects, particularly osteoporosis.

In 2004, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a “black box warning” on Depro-Provera, warning that long term use causes bone loss that may be irreversible.
