hi I jus got my first shot in sep I go for my 2nd shot in dec I havent notice any wight gain yet or bigger breast do I have to wait til my 2 nd shot to see if I will react the only thing happening is more bowel movements
Ever since I've been on the Depo shot, my period hasn't stopped and it's been four months now. I told my doctor before my second shot that my period wasn't stopping and she told me to get the second shot and that I would be "pleasantly surprised" with it. But when I got the second shot and my period didn't stop, she actually asked my why I proceeded to get the second shot, going against what she had previously said. Now I'm stuck with the second shot for another two months, which means my period probably won't stop soon.....is this amount of bleeding normal?
everyones bodies are different. stopping your period is not an absolute result. it depends on your body. im going ofr my third and my period is just now getting lighter and shorter. give it a little while. if you arent having bad results (aka gaining wieght like crazy) then its definitely worth sticking with.
FemeFatale-Whatever.. I was on the depo shot for two years and i was never depressed or suicidal.. Everyone is different.. I personally loved the depo shot it was the only thing at the time that gave me relief from horrible pain..
Kellie Marie-Everyone is different.. I know that alot of people dont stop bleeeding on the depo, i personally never had bleeding and never had a period until serveral months after stopping it..I would get on a different form of b.c.
Did you find something that works better for long term?
I've been on depo about 6 years now because my cramps used to be so bad I couldn't function. I'd love to know if there is something better out there!
When you gain weight as well as when you lose it the first place that you start to gain this weight is you bottem and your breast and your breast become tender and sore because they are growing tiny amounts.
i got my first depo shot exactly one week ago, i noticed on the fourth day after getting it my breasts being really tender and sore..they sort of look like they are getting bigger but i do not know lol.. they have been very sore and tender since then.... is it possible that the depo shot is making them bigger?
i was on depo for 3 years. no period the whole time. no weight gain, no breast growth .....but Very emotional and depressed, esp. about 2 weeks after the shot each time. I also got a fibroadenoma during that time (a benign lump in my boob which I had surgically removed)...so I don't know if I trust it. No period was awesome, but my family says they'll kill me if I go back on it because I was so volitile (however, I was a teenager at the time, so maybe it was just being a teen that made me so bi-atchy).
Actually, Im on DEPO and have been for a while now, And i havent really gained weight, but i had increased appetite and my boobs havent grown at all, that i can tell. When i first Started it, i got headaches everyday atleast twice a day. Now I dont have a period, Not that many headaches, and no cramps or anything. And my boobs are starting to get bigger. I think the symptoms only last for a certain amount of time for each person, or for no one at all.
The only chance that depo would indeed make you boobs get bigger is if you was not exercising right, therefor it wouldn't be depo it would be a cluster of fat in your boobs. Caused by lack of exercise.
k so im suppose to go on monday to get the depo shot again (this will be my 2nd time getting the shot) ...anyways ... i wasnt gaining weight the first 2 months after getting my 1st shot..although my breasts were very soar and tender most the time.. ........well since its the 3rd month..i think its hitting me now haha...i am sure ive gained some weight lol cause my pants that did fit me perfect...are difficult to get on..barely fit me.. i sweeearr my breasts were alot bigger for a few weeks... and then just the other day they looked smaller..i dont know what all thats about though! the depo shot has worked pretty good for me so far.. i have no complaints.. im a little sceptical to get the 2nd shot because i dont want to gain too much weight..but i really like the depo shot and im thinking maybe il get the 2nd shot and if i start gaining alot...il just excersize more....... anybody have any imput on getting the depo shot for the 2nd time?? ...lol...
I was on the Depo shot for almost ten years...I stopped taking the shot for two years and I am now back on the shot. The only side affects that I had the first time I took the shot was BAD headaches! This is one reason that I choose to leave the shot alone. But now I'm about three weeks into my first shot and all of a sudden my boobs are out of control!! I mean I have went up about 2-3 bra sizes...I wonder if this is just a phase, I do not want or need my breast to grow...does anyone know if they will go back to my normal size? Or what I can do to stop them from growing?
I have also notices quite a bit of mood swings, one minute I'm happy and loving life and the next I hate everyone and don't want to be bothered with nothing or anyone. They must have added something new to the depo...this is most definitly not the same as what I'm use to taking
