i had no periods at all-was nice , but i gained 20 lbs
It is different from person to person. I still had my periods and didn't gain weight, but I was irritable all the time.
Quoting letstalk747:i had no periods at all-was nice , but i gained 20 lbs
I had a horrible experience with it. I was extremely sensitive to where I couldn't have sex...which didn't matter because it killed my libido 100%. I also bled nonstop. I told my husband I would rather deal with an unexpected pregnancy than take that shot again. I never went back for my third shot.
My experience with depo was horrid...I bled nonstop and was a HUGE bitch. To the point I would cry and apologise but just COULD NOT help being hateful. Ida kicked my own ass to the curb, I was that screwed up. Within a couple of weeks of quitting it I stopped bleeding and leveled off. I was never able to take any bc containing hormones after I had my first baby, my whatever (hormonal balance i guess?) changed and have no tolerence for them now.
I did the depo shot for about two years, then I found out that over time it aids in bone loss. So I stopped and went back to the pill. This was about 8 years ago, so I don't know if that is something that you have to worry about still.
Lots to tell about the depo! I was a smoker so my doctor took me off the pill and put me on the depo. I gained 40lbs. Then when I wanted to get off the depo I never got my period. I have been off the depo for over a year and I still don't get my monthly friend. I asked my doctor and she said to wait another year before they will run some blood test. I thought about the uva ring but I know women who have suffered consequences from them. Now we just use condums.
