What are the pro's and con's to the depo shot?
I have been off of the shot for a year and some months. I was on it for a little less than a year. When I first started taking it, it was good. But on my third round of getting the shot. I started noticing that I was gaining extra weight.(Mind you I was already working out twice a day and eating right) I just broke up with my boyfriend of three/four years around that time. That really took a toll on me as far as depression. Since that third round of shot and now I gained about 50 lbs which I wish so badly I can rip off of my body but cant. I have been working out everyday for two hours but still no change till this very day. I also broke out on my face, especially under my chin ( with extra hair growing underneath those bumps,,,disgusting huh). I have been really depressed to the point where I would get migraines. I became very moody than normal and extremely emotional. Everyone has different side effects but that is what I experienced. I will post my story every site possible so that anyone who needs to know about this shot will know what it did to me.
You dont have to remember to take a pill daily. Effective after 24 hours. Women can start Depo Provera 6 weeks after giving birth.
Weight Gain (really common) It's known to make depression worse if you are depressed Does not protect against sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS Requires injections every 3 months Can take up to a year to get pregnant after getting off the shot Some women experience break out from the shot

I havnt gained any weight and it hasnt caused any depression
it has improved my skin and I dont have to worry about taking the pill everyday like I used to
