The ONLY way bfing can be used as a bc & be even slightly reliable is to nurse every 2 hrs during the day & go no more than 3 or 4 hrs at night. No paci's no bottles & it's not reliable after 6 months when you start solids. I knw nothing about the depo shot because I can't do hormonal bc.
Depo is horrible BC. I blame 4 yrs of use on my fertility issues. There are 10 yrs between our two kids because of it. IMO you should get off it immediately.
Yes you will gain weight on it and won't be able to lose it while on the shot. It makes the uterus inhospitable for pregnancy.
I've actually lost weight while on the depo. I got the first shot in October and I was 166. I now weigh 159.
