Unfortunately, depo really messes up a womans body. I wish I had done research before going on it many years ago.
It totally messed up my hormone levels. I bled when I wasn't supposed to and didn't bleed when I WAS supposed to.
I gained weight.
I went off of it when I was ttc and could not get pregnant. I had blood work, saw specialists, etc. Sadly, depo had screwed my system up quite badly. My hormones fluctuated constantly, hardly ovulated and was just a mess. I tried to conceive for a year a half. Finally, after being told by a specialist that conception will not be likely with my system, I gave up.
I DID end up getting pregnant...but since I was told I couldn't (by three different docs in two different countries), my pregnancy was a HUGE suprise!
(Good surprise for me, bad for xbf).
Depo is BAD!!!!!!!!!!!
