Sevenyears ago I was put on the Depo shot and it made me lose 20 pounds. I got off it because I lost the insurance I had at the time and it made me gain the weight back. I would like to get back on birth control since I have insurance through my job but I am nervous about it affecting me the opposite way. Does birth control usually affect people the same way as before? I was 19, I’m 26 now.
