How DEPO worked for me!!

Posted by: ProudAFWife on Fri Sep 21, 2007

I was one the pill from age 16 to 23. I had some break through bleeding but nothing to bad. My only main problem was forgetting to take it. So that was my down fall with the pill. Because of that I went on DEPO. Let me tell you... BIG MISTAKE! I was on it for 6months, 2 Shots. Yes it was more convinent and I never forgot to take anything. I did gain A LOT of weight (20lbs) and then there is the LONG term side effects I will never forget. My doctors think my main reason for not getting pregnant has been the DEPO. What doctors dont tell you is in most women it take 6months to get it out of your system but in other women any where from 12 to 24 months. Depo has hurt my chances of having a baby dramatically! I will never go on it again and I strongly advise other women to think twice about DEPO before you get it. Being infertile is very hard and I wouldnt wish that on my worst enemy.
