Are you struggling with your health after using Depo? Are you sick a lot? Do you get a lot of infections? Do you have an autoimmune disease now that you didn’t have prior to using Depo? If you answered yes, this chapter update is for you.
Since publishing THE DANGERS OF DEPO in 2017, there’s been many times that I’ve thought that we might have wrote the book too soon. In hindsight, I still had so much ahead of me. I ended my Destruction by Depo chapter on a high note, at the time, it felt like I had found the answer to my health problems since taking Depo back in 2010. What I didn’t know then was that it would get a great deal worse before it got better and although bioidentical progesterone has been very important in my recovery, it wasn’t all that my body needed.
I know that there’s a lot of us that have been left with health problems that we didn’t have prior to using Depo. I see it every day and have personally experienced Depo’s wrath for almost a decade. There are so many of us that it’s too many to be a coincidence or uncommon effects as they say. On a daily basis, women share their negative experiences, ask questions and join our online communities. I often wonder if all of this will become another #MeToo movement one day.
Many of us struggle on Depo, coming off of Depo and years after stopping it. A constant in our stories is not having been properly informed prior to using the shot. Many of us also share the struggle of prescribing doctors not acknowledging what Depo has done and not helping us get better after Depo's destruction. Often times, health problems cascade into other health problems and before long we’re riddled with chronic, ongoing health issues that eventually destroy our lives. We ultimately end up a shadow of who we once were.
