  • The Depo Shot: The most evil birth control ever! I immediately had increased appetite and had my period for 5 months straight! I gained about 30 pounds with the 2 shots that I got and have gotten moody since coming off of it. I've just tried to use my "me" time to do some meditation and yoga. Seems to help.

  • i got on it after my 2nd child. nd i gained alot of weight! i never went back for my 2nd shot. i ate way too much cuz it reallly did increase my appetite nd all i wanted to eat was junk food!! i DO NOT recommend the depo shot.

  • ~*YES*~... I am on the Depo... gained weight when very first on it, but lost it months after, and wasn't no 30lbs.... hahaha

    I've not had the monthly issue like other women since I had my son in April of 2007!!! ~*Amen*~... oh, and since hubby and I are bot fertile... no suprises
