Hey! I was on the depo shot years ago. I didn't get my period for 3 years and I really, really loved that aspect. As for the weight gain it is true but here is how it breaks down (as recently told to me by my gyno). The depo shot has a tendency to make you hungrier than usual. So, it's not arbitarily making you gain weight, it's what you put in your mouth that makes you gain weight. I didn't have any hair loss while I was on it. For me, it was the best solution at the time as I am horrible at remembering to take pills too. I'm using Nuvaring now. Hope this helps some.
so, like you get no sings of your period at all during the months? like do you stop getting your periods right away? does it effect also if you are able to have children later on once you stop taking it? thanx for the info though :-)
From what I understand it is different for different people. For me, a month into it my period stopped completely. I never had any signs at all. As for children, I've had two beautiful babies since going off the shot. We had some trouble conceiving but that was because my husbands sperm count was low.
ok, that doesn't sound bad. thanx!
