Re: Depo Shot

Another one with bad depo experience here. I was on it for a year and experienced all the side effects; moodiness, lower sex drive, no periods or pregnancy, huge weight gain. When I stopped it I bled for 4 months straight.

Re: Depo Shot

I was on Depo for 14 years with no bad side effects. I was told if you take extra calcium you do not need to worry about bone density. I went off of it for one month and got pregnant with my son. I m now trying to decide if I want an IUD or to go back on Depo.

ETA: it is effective after 24 hours

Re: Depo Shot

I know someone currently pregnant on it who never missed an appointment. They also generally won't let you continue on it super long because it can be really bad for your body. Could DH get a V?

Re: Depo Shot

Was on it from 17-21 with no issues once the six month period type bleeding stopped....maybe 20lbs weight gain but then again I went from teenager to woman...no problems conceiving and now have 4 planned kiddos...one mc after the first but it was same sac twins so not unusual..they say it affects your bone density after prolonged use now
