Im on the depo provera shot, and since being on it(nov. of last year) I have gained around 40-50 lbs :(.
I am in the process of trying to lose weight and my boyfriend is insistent that if I get off the depo shot, I will drop it really fast.
I really REALLY like the security of the depo shot. Not ever having to remember pills, and I don't think it makes me too crazy. Is there another birth control that is similar to depo in terms of protection and longevity, but perhaps wont make me gain the weight/may help lose the weight I have already gained? If not, Im staying on the depo shot, and I will just have to work extra extra hard I guess haha.
