I wonder if you can help me i have been on the depo provera

Customer Question

Good day i wonder if you can help me i have been on the depo provera injection for 6 years but decided to stop taking it after my wedding in september. My husband and i do not have a sex life as the injection took my sex drive away. Is there something i can take to help me get it back quick? The gynocoltis gave me a pill but i can only start using it after i had my first period but that can take 3 years.

the reason for this problem can be a hormonal imbalance. To resolve it, I would suggest the use of monk´s pepper (Vitex agnus-castus). This is a natural preparation that you will get without prescription.

Hope you wll have a quick success, best regards,

You can start a hormonal treatment like this anytime without waiting for the period. The only thing is, that protection then is not given during the first cycle. Nevertheless I would suggest to ask for the mentioned monk´s pepper at pharmacy at least.
