I was on the Depo shot for a few years before the weight gain was too much for me and I decided to try something new.

I have gained 20 pounds and have been on my period for 8 months. I only had one week where I didn't bleed. If it was just spotting I could live with it but my bleeding is very heavy. No sex drive. Getting this out of my arm this week. Can't take it anymore.
