  • I actually LOST weight on the shot, which my dr said is totally abnormal. Id plan to gain some if I were you though. Maybe throw in an extra work out if youre concerned about it.

  • What about a diaphragm? They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; you won't gain weight, get depressed, or lose your libido; your periods won't be affected. They have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible.
