Has anyone else tried the depo shot? I got it because my mom suggested it and haven't had my period yet but it has been making me 'crazy'. It's like I'm pregnant mixed with pms. Does anyone else had this experience?

Yes. Depo made me crazy... crazy paranoid of being pregnant, crazy moody, crazy hormonal...lol. I gained weight, too. Buuuuttt... I loved its convenience, and ( after 3 doses) the lack of a period.

used it, hated it. although i didn't really have a period, i had vaginal discharge the whole time, so i might as well have been on my period for a year straight! i was constantly paranoid that I was pregnat.

I've never used the depo, but I've had a lot of friend use it and they gained a ton of weight! I started birth control with the pill. After I met my DH I used the Nuva ring and it made me insane! If I ever go on birth control again I'll stick with the pill.
