I have not used this But I do have a friend that does and the only drawback she says Is weight gain :/ Unfortunately . She has gone up 2 dress sizes been on it almost 1 year. But she is hoping to get on a diet maybe start exercising and get some of the weight under control. have you talked to your Dr about this?
Her doctor gave her this answer:
It could be that the extra progesterone lowers the body's metabolism, which promotes the storage of fat, or it could be that it increases appetite. We don't have the answer at this point.?
Good Luck and I would talk to your Dr. the next time you go for a shot maybe there is something he/she can help you with?
I got the depo shot on July 25 this year. I did weight 145 before I got it, and now I'm almost 160. I'm not even going to get the second shot. It took me forever to lose weight and get down to 145. I'm very upset about it. Other than the weight gain, though, I've not really noticed any side-effects.
