How can I suit for the heartache Depo-Provera cause me?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Lawrenceville, GA

Depo-Provera has given me Essential Thrombocyctosis, Chronic Headaches, I have had 4 miscarriages, and a serious cancer scare last year. Now I have a serious blood disease I have to live with for the rest of my life. I really want this company to pay.
