I have been taking a birth control called Depo-provera injections since 4/02 to 11/06.
This medication is advised to be taken for no more than 2years, due to calcium withdrawl from bones, which is nonreplaceable. I was unaware of this matter the whole time I was taken this medication. I have 3months for the last injection to complete its cycle in my body. I currently have no medical conditions but would like to know my rights for such a mistake and danger to my health now and possible in the future.

You may have a personal injury case if you have been diagnosed with bone loss, osteoporosis, or have suffered a bone fracture. You may also have an independent claim for medical monitoring. In November 2004, the FDA issued a warning concerning bone loss, and as a result many physicians do not prescribe the drug for longer than 2 years.
