... back the way they were had very bad cramps and heavy bleeding but this weight gain is driving me crazy been on for 16 years anybody have an answer thanks karen
I have been off Depo 14 months now, having been on it for around 17 years.
My periods came back after about 3 months, but were very erratic & got heavier as time went on. Over the 17 years I've had a couple of breaks off Depo, & this has been the same problem, each time. Doctors tried D&Cs, but they would only lighten the periods for a short while, & then they returned to being heavy & almost constant.
The only thing that has worked for me, is a natural tincture called Agnus Castus. I take it in water/cordial each day, & it has settled my periods into a pattern & they are no longer heavy. Milk Thistle has also worked for me to prevent heavy, clotting periods. I was very sceptical, but now couldn't be without the A. Castus, although no longer need the Milk Thistle.
Everyone is different, but at least these options might be worth a try, should you find your periods return to the way they were.
Hope that helps x
