  • No, but the depo shot made me gain a shit ton of weight! That's why I stopped that shot and got on ortho trycyclin lo. Ortho made me lose weight.

  • Yeah, I was feeling way bloated with it. I also became more depressed with the depo shot, made me suicidal.

  • i was on the shot a couple of years ago for about 18 months and had no symptoms at all expect for the lack of a period which i liked.. Then I got back on it about 2 months ago after I had my daughter and I hate it. Bloating, back pain, cramping, mild spotting, my period was weird, depression and oh the FATIGUE! I will not be getting another shot! back to good ol Trojans for me.
