Depo shot Robin Wyatt Miamisburg, Ohio 123 posts

Before I had my first child I was healthy and skinny. Once I was pregnant with her I gained like 60 lbs. It took a couple of years but I least a little over half the weight. Then I got pregnant with my second and I didn't gain as much weight with her but after she was born the depo messed up my system. It's been making me gain weight even though I work out and eat healthy and caused my periods to come twice a month. Now it's out of my system ad I've lost 20 lbs so far has anyone else had this problem?

I was on depo before I had DD and actually lost weight and had no problems while on it, but afters stopping it took 2 years of unprotected sex to end up pregnant. I am on it again, have lost weight and haven't had any problems what so ever this time either. My aunt on the other hand bled very heavy for months after getting one shot and I have had many friends gain a ton of weight.

I'm not one for birth control but if its for you then wonderful. My husband and I are doing natural family planning. Sorry for the tmi I have always had a negative effect with birth control. I don't understand why some woman can have the shot and be fine but others can't.
