If you're not ready, you're not ready. That's why
more women than ever choose Depo-Provera.
You need just 1 shot every 11 to 13 weeks to
protect you from pregnancy. So, you can focus
on history, not maternity.
Depo-Provera does not protect you from
HIV/AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases.
You shouldn't use Depo-Provera if you could be
pregnant or if you have had any unexplained
periods. You should not use it if you have a
history of breast cancer, blood clots, stroke, or
liver disease. When using Depo-Provera, there
may be a loss of some of the bone mineral
stored in your bones. This could increase your
risk of developing bone fractures.

Some women using Depo-Provera have side
effects. The most common are irregular periods
or spotting. Many women stop having periods
altogether after a few months. You may gain
weight when using Depo-Provera. About two
thirds of the women in clinical trials reported
a weight gain of about 5 lb during the first
year of use.
If you're not ready to get pregnant, be ready
with effective birth control. Talk to your health
care provider to see if prescription Depo-Provera
is right for you.
