Adolescent weight gain on popular injectable contraceptive may depend on micronutrient intake

Since its introduction nearly 23 years ago, the popular injectable contraceptive depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) has been associated with causing substantial weight gain in some adolescent girls.

New research suggests that the message may need to change to “eat better.”
