problems with depo shots?

i got the depo shot for the first time after my 2nd child. i don't think it went so well... i waited about 3 months after delivery to get it. i breast fed my 1st child with no probs. and no probs. with the 2nd one till i got the shot and then i had horible cracked and bleeding nipples, plus i bled the whole time. when it was close to the time to get the next shot everything cleared up almost over night. Anyone else had probs with the shot?

  • i used it for almost a year after my first child.it made my hair fall out and thin out. i never used it again and my hair filled back in. it's nothing i would ever consider using again.

  • I used it for 2 years, I bled for probably the first 3 months strait and then never again after that, I was always a nervous wreck, i swear i took a HPT every month, lol, due to no period. I gained massive amounts of weight and was extremely moody and irritable, I would never go back on it again.

  • The only issues I had with the depo shot was no sex drive at all and my hair was falling out.
