  • I hated the depo. I lost interest completely in sex. I gained weight and the only good thing is that the effects of it lasted a long time. But otherwise I did not like the after effects.....

  • i was on the shot for over 5 years and i loved it. eventually your *aunt flo* lol will deminish completely. atleast it did for me. It take a bit for your body to be completely adjust to the shot. just give it time but if its really worrying you get a second opinion :) good luck darling

  • I've never been on it but based on the research I've seen and what I've heard I would get on it and get on something safer and better.

  • i never gain weight. but its different with everyone. The one thing i did have a problem is that it decreses your bone density so taking calcium pills or a ladies one a day vitamin is good too :)

  • after having my son and my daughter im now using the birthcontrol Maraina (lol how ever you spell it) and i love it. The only thing that i am noticing is that my cramps are getting a lil more sever each month... doc said it thins the linning of your uterus but its normal and nothing to worry about
