Had two rounds of depo, and I couldn't get it out of my system fast enough. For me- I ended up with 10-14 day long periods, then a few days off, then another 10-14 days. Bled pretty much all the time. Felt irrationally grouchy all the time. Didn't agree with me at all, and took me a good year without any shots before my cycle went back to normal. Some women swear by it, but for me it was a big mistake.
my doctor put me on the depo shot after i needed the mirena removed by surgery. i only get my "period" once every other month. my friend gets it since she gets killer pains when ever she got her friend, and since she's been on it, she stopped getting her cycle and its really helped. i've been on it for almost a year now, without any problems.
Ive been on it for a while. i had weight gain and i haven't had my period for a long time. never really had bad issues with it but it isn't for everybody.
Yes, it's defferant for everyone. I got it twice and for 6 months I couldn't stop bleeding, but my sister use to get them and she neve had a period.
I've had no issues with it. Gained no weight, only have very light periods, no issues with irritability or anything like that, been on it for 4 years.
