I was on Depo-Provera to help with my painful periods, and heard it was bad for your bones, so I stopped taking it. What else can I do to get rid of the pain?

In brief: BCP
You are correct, the depo-provera injection cause cause bone loss.
It would be advisable for you to speak to your family doctor or gynecologist about utilizing a bcp. Osteopathic manipulation has also been proven to help with painful menstrual periods.

In brief: Limit Toradol to 5 d
Toradol is great.
However it is also great at irritating your stomach. It should only be used for 5 days at a time no more than 4 times per day.
