  • Plus weight gain, bitchiness, mood swings, you name it. Depo sucks. I used to work with a nurse that joked that all of THAT (and the bitchiness) were why it was such an effective birth control method! LOL I was on it for 9 months, and I gained 45 lbs. I was miserable. Never again!

  • I never had any problems with other hormonal methods, but Depo and I didn't agree with each other. Fortunately, there are TONS of other (better!!) options out there. Talk to your doc to see what method will best meet your needs. =)

  • I HAD ALL THOSE AND I HAD NO SEX DRIVE WHICH ALMOST RUINED MY MARRIAGE. AS SOON AS I WAS OFF IT, IT CAME BACK WITH A VENGEANCE.
