if you ask a doctor they will say no. But women,like me, beg to differ. Symtoms of PCOS and what the depo shot does to keep you from getting pregnant are VERY similar. I never had any trouble with anything that pertains to the female reproductive organs til after I was on the depo for a year. Before the depo I was able to concieve, now I cant. Its been 7 years since Ive used birth control. I never have regular periods, I have horrible cramping, unwanted facial hair, cant lose weight no matter what I do. I believe from the bottom of my heart that the depo shot caused my PCOS.View Thread
