    I had three intramuscular injections. As a result my periods didn't end for 75 days. I had diarrhea, suicidal thoughts, vitamin D deficiency, paresthesia, numbness in my limbs, scalp burning, severe scalp hair loss, eyebrows and eyelashes loss, itchiness all over my face and head, dermatitis, acne, headaches. It's been 5 months after injections and I'm still losing hair by handfuls! I& ... Show Full Comment

    Was administered through injection for knee pain. Have had irregular men's trial cycles since receiving treatment. Cycles are frequent now only two weeks apart and I have had very heavy bleeding. Leaves me weak and fatigued.
