Depo Provera is a progestin injection given every three months. Each injection offers protection from pregnancy for 12 weeks. Unlike the pill, which provides a small dose of hormones daily, Depo gives a large dose of Progestin at one time, there fore side effects can be more pronounced.

A common side effect is absence of your period during the first year of use, this affects a quarter to a half of users and only about 30% of users will continue to have a regular period.

Other side affects are, weight gain,dizziness,nervousness,change in sex drive,headaches,rash or discoloration of the skin,breast tenderness,depression,increase or decrease in facial and/or body hair, and hair loss from your head.

This is one of the most effective forms of birth control and on average the failure rate is only 0.5%.
