How long after going off Depo were you able to lose weight?

I lost 20 pounds of baby weight when I had my son but gained 25 on Depo on top of the weight I was trying to lose. I think it may be easier for the weight to come off since its been 7 months since I got off of it.

Any advice would be apreciated.

  • I got pregnant after I had my first period after going off depo(which was about 9 mths after i missed my shot). And surprisingly I lost over 15lbs and didn't start gaining until I was 5mths pregnant. I would say the weight comes off easily but I was sick too and every person is different when it comes to that stuff. BTW I gained over 50lbs on depo....yea it sucked and still does; I can't weight to have my baby and get back to the normal me.
