I've tried the pill in many different forms, and I've experimeced relatively low amounts of weight gain no more than 5-7 lbs but I am getting older now and my schedule is so out of whack I want to make my life easier without having to remember to take a pill every day. I've read a lot of women experience weight gain with the depo shot. I'm trying to get into great shape and actually loose some weight so I want to hear any testimonials about preventing weight gain on the depo shot or if it's inevitable.
I didn't have any problems with weight gain. Some people say Depo caused them to have cravings though so maybe try to eat something healthy if that happens. I've been on it 6 months and am still adjusting to it, though.
Im just the opposite 2 shots and lost 35lbs. and gives me no appetite
I've been on the shot for the better part of 16 years.I have been on the far opposite of the spectrum where I have lost weight on the shot. I eat like a HORSE, and cant gain over 130 lbs.i really think it depends on the person and how you react to it. However I have experienced really low iron. That's been my bad side affect.
