Ok Ladies, I need some advice...

I am tired all of the time and lately I have been a lot more moody and...dare I say it, emotional. I just got off of the depo shot, could this be contributing to it or do you think it is more?

  • Since you don't know, please get checked out. It could be hormones or a virus etc. At least call the doctor who prescribed the depo and ask them.

  • I would wait it out for a while as well as checking with your OBGYN the side effects for being taken off of the medication. If you are experiencing less sleep and are tired all of the time, per doctors orders, take some fish oil. That helps my husband be less tired around groups of people, during the day, and at work..... I could also recommend training yourself to go to bed early and wake up on time everyday until your natural rhythm is restored. Try taking melatonin by dr. orders of course, if you have trouble falling asleep and need a sleep aid...maybe your levels are off because of the depo but always check with a doctor before taking anything.
