I started feeling depressed about 3 weeks after I got my depo shot. I was also have suicidal thoughts.
Thankfully I am getting the help I need.

Amestevez, It can cause depression, and make an underlying depression worse. Have a heart-to-heart with your doctor(s) about the pros and cons of using Depo. I'm glad you're getting help, and I hope you feel better! WildCat

It most certainly can cause depression. Is the doctor who gave you the shot aware of this?
