Ive been on depo.
It is dec 2009 I received my 1st shot oct. 2008, last shot march 2009.
I have not had a period since that march. Usually on depo you have a period the entire time while or you don't have one at all. I spotted occasionally no biggie i thought. well now because of the depo I do not spot nor have I received a period in 8mths, I have no sex drive&my prolactin levels are sky high. The depo drug stays stored in your fat, that is why it takes women so long to receive to their period. it took away my sex drive, any moisture down in that area, i was mood swinging i do not suggest this birth control. it can lead to bone loss it basically sucks the calcium out of your bones my dr put me on calcium pills&mult. vitamins. yes it is nice knowing you can be stress free by just a simple injection every three months but i believe it is not worth it. Research needs to be done on this B.C.
I was using Depo Provera from August 2007 - February 2009. During the time that I was using Depo, I started to gain weight. They say that about 5-10 pounds is normal but I didn't gain 5-10 pounds. I gained about 90 over a ten month period. Nothing I did could stop it. I was following my doctors nurtrition guidelines and nothing helped. I finally got to a point in my life where I could safely get off all birth control so I could clean out my body because I started to read so many bad things about the Depo online. My last shot was February 15, 2009. I finally got my period back on Dec. 19th 2009. I would not recommend Depo to anyone. And losing the weight afterward is an even worse struggle. I've only lost twenty-five of the pounds since my last shot was due.
