  • Are you postpartum?

    I haven't heard of losing hair on Depo - but at about four-six months after baby I lost a ton of hair. Like massive amounts of hair. As in Chia pet size mounds.

  • I hated the depo, will never use it again. I too lost hair, had bleeding for more than 6 weeks straight, gained A LOT of weight... and then when I got off the depo, I didn't have a period for almost 6 months... it really screwed my body up

  • doctor says that the hair lose is the depo.. that it can be a side affect i guess if i had known i wouldnt have taken the depo
