Experience

I had Sanya Press 3 times having moved from depo provora and in addition to having strong mood swings and feeling low, the subcutaneous injection left me with fat burn. This meant I was left with a dent in my skin and a large bruise the size of a £2 coin. We tried my thigh and my stomach but I was beginning to look like a pin board. On the bright side, having reverted back to the intramuscular depo, and given the scarring 18months, they have finally disappeared.

Experience after taking

I moved straight back onto the intramuscular depo injection and have returned to fully happiness, stable moods & maintained no period throughout. After 18 months the fat burns have slowly disappeared.
