  • I was in the same boat. Get out and take a walk with your child. Get up and do stuff around the house. Talk to your doctor about the headaches. It took me awhile to stop bleeding but it will stop.

  • Ride it out and take something else. Check with your Doctor to see what they can give you to stop the bleeding.
    Call your Doctor.

  • GET OFF.... I was on that shot and gained 50lbs like it was nothing! I got so down and out and just didn't care about nething nemore. So I would say stay far far far away from the DEPO shot.

  • The depo is horrible, I would stop.

  • Sorry to say, I haven't heard many good things about the Depo. Mainly issure with weight gain. Definitely talk to your dr about current issues and other options!
