There are reports that DMPA if used for a long time (say 3 to 5 years) may thin out your bones and make them brittle (osteoporosis
). You have to see how much DMPA is helping you remain symptom free from endometriosis
. If it is really helping you, then you may continue it for another couple of years. Take a bone density
test every 6 months to a year. DMPA also suppresses symptoms of adenomyosis
, but I doubt that the latter could be diagnosed after a D&C.
