Amenorrhea: An Advantage Rather than a Complication of Depot Medroxy Progesterone Acetate Injectable Contraceptive

H. Sadeghi-Bazargani and Z. Fardyazar    

Abstract: In part of a vast longitudinal multi-centric research program being conducted about menstrual complications of DMPA in northwestern Iran, we studied the satisfaction and personal ideas of 411 amenorrheatic DMPA users about bleeding loss and amenorrhea caused by DMPA and effect of these ideas on its acceptability. Of those 411 persons who didn`t have even one day of menstruation one month after injection, 360 didn`t have even one day of menstruation after 60 days. These people were asked if they were satisfied with menstrual cessation caused by DMPA injection or not? 73.4% of participants declared their satisfaction with this complication of DMPA. No statistically significant difference was shown between type of menstrual pattern and weight, previous history of irregular menses and previous history of abortion. But breastfeeding and a history of cesarean section affected the menstrual pattern during the month after a DMPA injection. 57.5% of women very satisfied with amenorrhea caused by DMPA compared with 5.7% of those very dissatisfied with it, continued to use DMPA at least for six months.
