Postpartum and depo shot JessicaRenee118 1 child; Dallas, Texas 33 posts

So I'm almost 5 months PP, and I'm on the depo shot. Before I got my first shot on 1/29, I got my first PP period that lasted for like 5-7 days. I got my first period since then and I have been on it now for 2 weeks. I was just wondering if any ladies out there have had this problem with the depo, and wonder if I should consult my doctor. I don't think I like the depo, it also makes me moody and hungry all the time!

I'd get my period for about 2 weeks ever 2 months with the Depo, I was on it for 9 months. I've heard stories about women that are never able to get pregnant again so I stopped getting it. I wish I had never gotten it in the first place.

I hated the shot.
It's the DEVIL. I'd get off of it if I were off of you.

Yeah I've pretty much decided that I'm not going to get another shot. I just don't know what BC to go to, the thought of the Implanon and IUDs give me the heebyjeebies. And I don't do we'll with the pill that's how I got pregnant to begin with lol

I had that problem too. So I've just decided to get off of all BC and just wait for Depo to get out of my system.
