Depo Provera Shot

I've been on the Depo shot for about 3 1/2 years now. I've noticed I've gained alot of weight. I'm getting acne, I'm tired all the time and I feel like a blob that doesn't want to get out of bed.

Anyone exsperienced this?

I did gain some weight on it. I was also tired but at the time i was working 60-70 hours a week, planning a wedding, keeping house and having fun with friends so i dont know if it was the depo that made me tired or my busy life. Weight gain is a side effect of the drug.
