If you are accepted into our program based on the review of your application, you would need to agree to discontinue use of Depo Provera. You may choose to use another form of contraceptive such as birth control pills, the patch, Nuva Ring or a non-hormonal IUD (Paraguard). In addition, if you choose to discontinue using Depo Provera in order to participate with us, we would need to wait until you have two consecutive menstrual cycles before we can begin the medical screening. This can take anywhere from a month to a year, depending on the person. As a first step, we’d recommend you apply online to see if you meet our medical requirements. If you pass this phase and are invited to an interview, you can discuss with your coordinator whether it’s worth discontinuing use of Depo Provera.
