Need a bit of advice. i seen alot of talk on here recently of the depo injection and was wondering if i should come off it as im due to have it in about 2 weeks. i have been reading up on it and learned alot of stuff they dont actualy tell you when you first take it. firstly i have read that i will need to take a bone density test now as ive been having it for about 3 years. it says alot of people gain weight, although i only gained weight the past year im wondering if thats why im having so much trouble losing any....??!! your not meant to take it if you suffer from depression (which i do) and it can make you really misserable. i hear you canthave it for more than 5 years cause it will make you infertile. the reason i have it is because it stops periods which when i had them i used to be very sick and pass out (that may change as im older now), but if i knew all this i dont think i would of started using it. im hoping if i stop it i will lose weight?! can anyone give me any advice on it or tell me about their experience???
