Speaking of which...are any of y'all on Depo? It seems to *really* screw up some people.

I just went off depo 5 days ago after 2 years on. Absolutely loved it, with the exception of the 25lbs I gained in those 2 years. Jog 5 days a week, eat healthy, nothing worked. I can't blame it on "getting older", as I was on it from ages 20-22.

I heard a joke about how depo works, it makes you so fat and unattractive that no one will have sex with you!

My doctor cited weight gain as the #1 reason people stop using it.

So, I'm back on the pill, trying to find my waist again. Overall, weight gain is very common on depo, but it also reduces your good cholesterol and sucks the calcium out of your bones. I'd say for most people the problems outweigh the convenience. (pun intended)
