I have contacted UpJohn by both phone and a letter. I received a reporting form from them, asking me to fill out the information, so that they may report the side-effects of Depo to the F.D.A. I had informed them in my letter that I had already reported to the F.D.A. I filled out their form and returned it. I also asked them to reply to me in the next 30 days, with a way to reverse the side effects of Depo. The 30 days was up on May 7, 2000 and I did not hear from them.

I also reported my side effects to the F.D.A. I received a form letter from them, thanking me for reporting my problems, but telling me that they will not even begin to invesigate until they receive several complaints.

I reported my side effects to the California and Nevada Attorney General, I lived in California at the time of my shots, and now Nevada. Nevada forwarded my complaint to Michigan, since they are the agency that will handle consumer complaints against companies in their state. They sent me a letter stating that they can't do anything about UpJohn, because it is a drug problem and to report it to the F.D.A. California told me that they will keep my report in a file, incase they have any further problems with UpJohn, and need it for legal information.

Suggs & Kelly lawfirm is still investigating Depo, and they are not sure if they are going to take the case or not. They have been trying to decide for over a year now.

I feel like I am getting the run around from everyone. I have decided to go public, and at the least, I will hopefully discourage some women from taking Depo. I have emailed the Oprah Winfrey Show and began writing letters to the editors of newspapers, telling my story.

If anyone has any other helpful information, please let me know.

I reported Pharmacia & UpJohn to the Better Business Bureau (please see contact page for the address) and they replied stating that this is the jurisdiction of the FDA. I told them about not getting any response from the FDA or UpJohn, so they are going to investigate my claim.

I have also learned some new information regarding the lawsuit. According to a friend of mine, the United States is going to be divided up into three regions (Western, Central, and Eastern). Three separate law firms are going to handle the cases, depending on where you live. They are:






(619) 233-5945






(713) 629-6222

(713) 629-6226 FAX


I have also learned of several helpful websites. If you are having a hard time dealing with infertility, try

There is also an online chat group for depo-users. It is through Globe Clubs at and search for Depo-Provera.

I have also begun to use herbal remedies for my infertility and to try to induce ovulation. I plan on continuing with these for six months or so, before I try clomide and/or perganol.

If anyone needs anything, please let me know. Or if you have any additional information, please contact me.

I received a phone call from Dee Dee Everett on Monday, July 17. She states that there are currently four firms working on the depo suit in California. They are writing a formal complaint, and then must have it certified before they can file with the court. If it is accepted, we will pass a major hurdle!

They are going to claim deceptive advertisement against UpJohn. Since the slogan for depo is "the birth control you think about just four times a year" and those of us who are suffering from the effects of depo, think about it daily, it is deceptive. They are filing in California first, since it has less restrictions and if the suit is won, other states will follow. If you are interested in further information, please email me.

This is just an update to let everyone know that I haven't forgetten about the lawsuit. The attorneys are still working on writing and filing the complaint in California Court. As with any governmental process, this takes time. I just want to let everyone know that we are still working on this.

If anyone needs anything, support, suggestions, or just a friend to talk to about Depo or anything, let me know. Feel free to email me at any time.

I will try to keep this site updated more often.

September 20, 2000

Well, I don't really have any new information. They are still working on choosing a chairperson for the class in the lawsuit. I am just trying to keep this site updated on a more regular basis. If anyone is considering depo, or has an experience with depo, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will give you any help that I possibly can. I am also interested in hearing from people who have conceived, both successfully or unsuccessfully after using depo. Although it has been over 4 years since my last shot, I still don't ovulate, and I would like to know if anyone has managed to conceive after depo. Please let me know. Thank you.

October 10, 2000

I don't really have any new information. Lawsuits are a long and time consuming issue, so we all must be patient and pray for the best. I would just like to reiterate, that if anyone needs anything, please let me know. Also, if anyone has any helpful information on depo, positive news or negative, please let me know.
I hope wish everyone the best!

I will be out of town on vacation this week, so it may take me a while to get back to all of you. I just wanted to let you know, so that nobody thinks that I have forgotten about them, or that I just don't care! I wish everyone loads of luck!

October 31, 2000

Happy Halloween! I am back from vacation, and have returned all of the email that I received. I just want to remind everyone that they can email me at anytime with depo questions or concerns. I am always ready to listen, I know how you feel, because I am going through it too.

December 19, 2000

I am waiting to hear any new information from Dee Dee. As soon as I learn anything, I will post it on my site. If anyone has heard anything, that is not mentioned on my site, please feel free to let me know. If it is not posted on my site, I probably have not heard about it yet. MERRY CHRISTMAS !!

January 10, 2001

I heard from Dee Dee Everett today. They are still awaiting medical records on some of the members involved in the suit. Once they receive everyone's records, they will be able to choose a spokesperson, and the suit can move forward.

If anyone has any other information, let me know.

February 23, 2001

I still don't have any new information. I have heard rumors that Suggs & Kelly has decided not to take the case (they are handling the Eastern portion of the U.S.) but I haven't been able to verify this. I had a period in November, and then one in January, so I got to start using my Clearplan Easy Fertility Monitor. It says that I ovulated on day 25 of my cycle (which would make sense since my cycles are so long). I will let everyone know if we conceive. Please keep us in your prayers. Thank you.

March 6, 2001

Carmen Sessions is no longer working for Suggs & Kelly and they have decided not to take the lawsuit. However, the suit in California is still pending. There isn't any new information (they are still waiting on medical records), but I will update this site when I learn of anything new.

APRIL 6, 2001

I heard from Dee Dee Everett last week, and there has been a change in the lawsuit. This is a direct quote from Dee Dee:

"There has been a slight change in our strategy to file the class action against the makers of Depo Provera. We are now seeking women from across the entire U.S. to be class representatives"

"The ideal class representative has had problems with bleeding immediately after the Depo shot, reported it to their doctor (therefore, it is in their medical records), and possibly these bleeding patterns might have lead to a D&C or a hysterectomy."

"So if you are willing to be a class representative plaintiff, whose side effects are supported by medical records and able to provide us with those medical records, please email me back immediately (include your side effects and the state you reside in)."

So, if this sounds like you, please see my contact page for contact information on Dee Dee. I will update this site as soon as I hear anything else.
