Does the shot have any health benefits?
updated about 3 years ago

The shot stops or lightens periods, so it can really help women with things like anemia or endometriosis. Using the shot now can help protect your uterus from cancer later on in life. A couple other little-known tidbits: If you have sickle cell disease, the shot may help you have fewer sickle crises. Or if you have grand mal seizures, the shot can decrease the risk of those, too.
