What was your experience with the Depo Shot?

Asking for my daughter. She had been on it before, but this time, she has had a period for two out of the three months... Does this sound normal?

  • I hated it. All I did was gain weight and bleed for 2 months! I actually had to get IV fluids from the constant bleeding and iron loss. THEN I got pregnant on it too!

  • i loved it. i was on it for 7 years and if i remember right i stopped having a period after my second shot. lol didnt know what to do when i got off it and started having them again. i sat in the alsie for at least 30 mins trying to figure out what i should buy (brand and what flow) lol. i thought i was nuts myself.

  • Hated it. Bleed almost the entire time & my hair fell out in clumps.

  • Not good. I bled for 9 weeks straight. When it was time for another shot, I just got on the pill.
