I've been taking depo-provera for over 4yrs now i was told to stop taking it-it causes other health problems-is that true?

In brief: Prolonged depot

Causes bone loss.
Patients on depot for more than two years should have a good reason for not using another contraceptive, and may consider surveillance for this problem with a dexa scan.
