ok so i got on the deop shot a few weeks ago
the doc said to wait a week to have sex

on and off and certant smells make me feel like im gonna throw up
i have had a hard time eating and drinking milk and other stuff like that

  • they tell you to wait for a reason....birth control doesn't work the moment you start it so you should always use a back up form like condoms until the 6 weeks is up. It could certainly be side effects of the shot, but pregnancy is also a possibility. Doctors tell you things for a REASON.........LISTEN to them.

  • it sounds like you are pregnant. I had the depo shot 4 a couple years and only had weight gain and acne and depression. But everyone takes to bc differently... Have you been on any other form of bc? Are you sensitive around your time of the month and such?

  • I would take a pregnancy test or have one done at the doctor. I was on depo for years, but it was so long ago I don't remember all the side effects honestly. Sorry. I was on it for about 4 years, never missed a shot, and got pregnant with my first daughter while I was on the shot!!!!

  • To tell you the truth i hate the depot shot! I was sick on and off and bled for six months after i first got the shot. my cervix was bleeding and i had to go back to the pill which obviously did not work because i am pregnant again! So if you can stick to the shot or find somethin better!

  • Anon 11:12.... My doc said that the shot would take effect in 48-72 hours.... I NEVER GOT PREGNANT and we did do it in that first week just after the first 3 days.. watch what you say man... docs go to school for 8 years plus to not be morons...
