I agree that for some/many women, Depo has not been a healthy or happy experience for them.
I also know many women that are on the Depo injection that are healthy and happy.
It is most definately up to the individual to make their own decisions about such things and to research it.
It is available here with due consultation with your doctor.
I really feel that it is a drug (like thousands of others on the market) that agrees with some people and not for others. It should be available through a doctor if they and you feel that it is appropriate. I think it should be an informed choice made by the woman and her health professional. As it should be when you seek any medication from a doctor.

In general, drugs need to stay within a percentage of harm to be deemed safe. I don't think depo meets those standards. While some women may love depo and not be aware of any side effects (keeping in mind that many women writing their horror stories on the sites did not realise that their problem came from depo until reading other stories) drugs should not be offered to the public until they meet safety standards.
That one of the creators of the drug is now declaring women's bodily functions to be unnatural adds to my concern regarding his wrecklessness and lack of respect for women in general.
