... out there and see what you guys think.. at 15, i had insanely abnormal uterine bleeding. i was checked into the hospital and started on depoprovera. the doctor made mention, but has not said it since, that i had polycystic ovaries. i have been on the depo shot since 2005 as treatment. in these 7 years, while eating healthier and exercising, i have gained 50lbs. i cannot lose this weight. everyone has different opinions as to whats causing it and how to fix it. what are the thoughts here?
