I was on the shot before I had kids and never had any weight gain, or any other side effects. After this last baby, I went back on it. I have only had one shot, my next one being on the first of September. I have gained at least 10 lbs in my stomach area only (I haven't been eating more, or been less active either), i have been very sick to my stomach, have thrown up a few times, and have spotted a total of 6 times this month, and i start cramping randomly. it's horrible and i hate it. I'm glad I'm getting my tubes tied after the next baby, because i hate this.

I was 145 and got up to 180 in a matter of 6weeks with working out... one day my pants would fit the next they wouldn't. It terrified me, I was in the doctors constantly.

I was 130 when i started it 8+ years ago I gained some I was 240 when I got pregnant with my daughter 5 years later and started it again and now am 328 this last year has been 5lbs a month. so glad I will be off of it soon (DH got Vasectomy done) Please don't bash it is the only thing I am not allergic to and I tried to get my tubes tied but didn't have the $1100.00 they needed up front and the other $1100.00 after it was done.
