If you stopped getting the depo shot after first round....

how much weight did you gain? And how long did it take for you to lose the weight?

 

 So question to go with my question: After you stopped the depo shot how long after not getting the next shot did it take for you to stop gaining weight? I am due to get it wednesday but won't be obviously but will i still continue to gain weight? I have already gained 15 lbs since i first got the shot. :/

  • I gained 35 lbs and it took me two yrs to lose it. I highly recommend to all my friends NOT to take the depo shot.

  • I gained about 15 pounds and it took about two years to lose mine too. Plus i was out of balance hormonally for a long time after also. I now use a natural progesterone cream to keep my mood swings and periods better.
