I went on the depo provera shot when I was about 31 and I am 50 now. My primary care doctor took me off of it for a short time when I was about 43 he thought it made me gain weight. I went off started getting hormonal migraines went back on and was fine. I feel better since i have been on the shot. I have more energy. I am not anemic. I dont get yeast unless i take strong antibiotics. i wondered how is the shot goin to affect menopause and how will i know when i am in it enough to where my periods will not come back.View Thread
