Hi there Doc, I was on depo provera for about 13 years in Jan I had my last injection and July I had a laproscopic tubal ligation since them I have had terrible mood swings - one moment high the clouds the next depressed and very tearful, is this normal and how long will this last. I have also been on anti depressants since April although have not taken them regularly in the last 2/3 weeks - could this also be adding to my mood swings, what should I do?

You can have mood swings for a while as your hormones adjust to being off the injection. However, it should have sorted itself out by now. Not taking antidepressants regularly can cause mood swings. I presume that you are being managed by a psychiatrist.
