Dear Question About Depo Provera,

Since TeenHealthFX does not know what specific question you had about Depo Provera, we will refer you to the Planned Parenthood article on the Birth Control Shot (Depo Provera) for some general information about what the birth control shot is, how it works, what it protects against and how to make the shot work best for you. You can also read the Center for Young Women’s Health article Depo-Provera Hormonal Injections for additional information.

If you have any specific questions or concerns about Depo Provera, feel free to write back to TeenHealthFX or speak to your school nurse, primary care physician, gynecologist or adolescent medicine specialist. If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist or contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
