I am really looking for some advise with regards to recovery with the Depo Provera Shot. I have had 2 shots in total starting from April 2007 and my 2nd shot was 11th July 2007.

My last period was in April and I understand women can take a while to return to normal. However I have been having really bad side-effects. I have gained 10kg in that time and my tummy does look as a 30 week pregnant woman. I have taken a few tests and know this not to be the case.

I have after 2 long haul flights, suffered bad leg cramps and went to see my GP who informed me I was talking rubbish and there are no such side effect besides the osteoperosis risk and sent me away. I know this not to be true either as the number of websites out their say otherwise.

Now the cramps have subsided I still have this drug pumping through me... I have hit a really bad depression to the point I just dont want to wake up anymore. My mood swings are irrational, my sex drive has dissapeared.

I have the worst hot flushes and feel pre-menopausal (I am 27), I also seem to catch every virus and bug possible. My immune system is just not fighting in the way it used to.

I have started to eat well, exercise regular, take aloe vera, drink herbal teas and nothing seems to be making a difference.

I would really appreciate any advise to help me detox this awful drug away. I have Tried my GP but I have no faith he knows anything on the subject.
