Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after getting off depo


Avatar m tn hi i been losing weight recently and im also on the depo shot and i was wondering if u can lose weight from being on the shot i was told u can but i was wondering if anybody ever experienced it before i was getting nervous cause i never lost weight before and i was wondering if the shot has something to do with it if anybody is on the depo shot and lost weight please let me know and if it is from the shot should i be concerned or should i just let it go thanks
Avatar f tn (they dont recommend you stay on it over two years, so take a break after 2 then get back to it.) when I got off depo I was pregnant within a month, it didnt make me gain weight, but I exercised a lot and never lost a pound. I blame depo. But other than that, I didnt get a period and that was nice (: &no big symptoms after the first shot!
1010643 tn?1250738691 I have been off depo for 5 almost 6 months. Me and my fience want kids,how long after could we get pregnant??
Avatar f tn I use to be on depo way before I got pregnant and I hated it I hated everything it put me thru soI came off it are there any other kinds of birth ccontrol that are good I really don't want to get pregnant again after I have her i want to wait until least she is 5 3 the earliest I know birth control is different for everybody but I just would like to know a few so I can look them up and when I have her I'll ask the doc what to do from there but depo is not the answer for i gained to much
Avatar n tn t recommend Depo to anyone it also weakens your bones permanently and takes a hella long time after getting off of it to get pregnant healthily.
Avatar n tn t realize how long it can take for your cycles to return after getting off of the depo. I bet if more people did, then less people would use the depo as birth control. Good luck!

Avatar f tn I went on the depo and ended up having an ectopic pregnancy and i did gain alittle bit of weight..
Avatar f tn I as 135 and within 2months i gained so mich weight. From 135-199 in 2months. After i got off the shot i had my period but then they began to come off and on. I went to my doctor and she prescribed me Progesterone. I got my periods back but I didn't wanna take medication no more. I was sick and tierd of all thoes heart breaking moments when o thought i was pergo or ovulating and i wasn't.
Avatar n tn s incredibly frustrating that she has to go to these great lengths to try and not gain weight, especially when getting off of it is even scarier. We need to meet with a doctor that has seen this happen to other people (her OBGYN and nurses don't believe her) and can provide a plan for her to go back to loving her body and not having to work out 2 hours a day while eating nothing.
Avatar f tn Since then, I have gained over 25lbs, had horrible and wickedly insane mood swings, had a period that lasted from February 6th-May11th and have been reading all kinds of horror stories from other women who have had a horrible time losing the weight that Depo has added. I am just wondring if there are other girls out there who have had bad experiences on Depo and if anyone can suggest an alternative.
Avatar f tn Whats better ? Depo . Iud .pills . After my first child i got on depo nd my period was for 6 months . I got off depo for awhile ended up prego .

4528412 tn?1357069833 It took me awhile to lose my weight. got the depo shot 6 weeks after birth. BIG mistake! Went 3 rounds after i quit that and lost about 10 lbs without trying. Then after dieting, watching what i eat/ drink, i finally lost all but 10 lbs. i was 120 prepregnancy so i wond up being 130. Grapefruit works wonders and so does gaterade. After gaining some weight back, i started walking everyday. got up to two hours a day. Then i was also drinking atleast one energy drink a day.
Avatar f tn After having it in for about three years and having a very difficult time losing weight I decided to research it further and had it removed shortly after. My periods were so unveleivabley heavy and I couldn't lose the last 10 lbs of baby weight (this is what hormonal bc has always caused me in terms of weight) but it could have of course been coincidental. I was disappointed to find that the iud could terminate an early pregnancy as for my own morals I'm only interested in prevention.
4744855 tn?1358656623 thanks for your help but i dont have a eating discorder i eat all the time but just dont gain weight it runs in my family when i go to my doctors in february im gonna talk to them about switching to another birth control or getting off the depo shot completly
Avatar f tn I actually gained alot of weight but didnt lose any hair like the other ladies say. When i got off ithe depo it took bout 8 months afta tryin to get prego . I mean it works but dere is alot of side effects.
Avatar f tn she lost a dramatic amount of weight while she was on it. so it is defiantly true that you can lose weight while on the depo.
Avatar f tn It can take awhile to get pregnant after getting off the Depo shot...i was on the shot for 2 1/2 years and it took me a year to get pregnant....BUT everybody is different.
Avatar f tn I Have Had Depo I Didnt Gain Weight Or Have Mood Swings I Just Did Not Have A Period And Even After I Got Off Depo I Didn't Have A Period For Almost 3More Months And When I Did Get My Period Back It Was Very Irregular And Caused Problems With Me Trying To Concieve Because I Was Not Ovulating Like I Should But Everybody Body Is Different So You Might Or Might Not Get And Side Effects

Avatar n tn First off, Great about missing the Depo. That shot should be banned. Were you told about all the side effects depo could have? Did you start taking a calcium supplement? I started Depo march 2003 and gained within the year 60lbs. I had saver chest pain, and went to get an ekg. I had severe head aches that came about suddenly. I had dizzy spell at random times and most important I was never told to take calcium until my last shot in may of last year.
Avatar f tn how soon can i get pregnant after getting of the depo shot? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/558675'>WAS DEPO PROVERA THE CAUSE?</a>.
