For some people it does.. I think weight gain and constant periods are the main ones. Then there's loss of bone density if you're on it for too long, which can lead to osteoporosis (sp? may have the wrong disease there as well). I lost weight and didn't have a period for six years, and got a positive pregnancy test 8 months after I came off it. I was lucky though, some people gain weight, bleed constantly and it takes years for them to get pregnant after they come off it. You can always try it and if you have bad side effects try something else. two shots is six months protection and that's long enough to see how it'll affect you but not long enough to do any damage.
