>>��>>��Hi ladies. I thank each of you for you comments here. I had a depo shot after the birth of my third child almost 3 years ago. I bleed so bad for the first 6 months after 2 shots that i stopped them all together. Since then i have been tired all the time, cannot function at night. My sexual relationship with my husband has gone down the tubes, i could care less about sex, I have no interest. He thinks I am having an affair! I did not know what was happening to me until i read your comments here today. God it makes sense. that shot has really messed me up and I have been off of it for more than 2 years now and I am still affected by it. Is there anything we can do? Let me know
>>��>>�� Seemed to make sense to me.

>>��>>�� Since then, I had a ten day period, major spotting and felt like hell! 1st month. Second month nothing, exept weight gain. I have always been 110-112pounds. I work out constantly, 3-4 days a week. I was instantly 117 pounds. I thought, OK a few pounds will probably be good for me. Then my weight would change from 117 - 123, 124, 125, 126 IN A DAY!!!

>>��>>�� I felt pregnant!!! I have three kids and I know, trust me!! I went to the doctor and asked her, (a different one,) how my husband could have a vasectomy, I had this stupid shot and now I could be pregnant. That's when she told me the shot's side effects were screwing me up totally. She said she is a doctor and a female and she would NEVER get that #$@$%# shot!!! He reason for the male doctor giving it to me was he basically has never been pregnant and dosen't understand how it feels.

>>��>>�� Needless to say I only had the one shot. That was in January 2001. It is now June 2001 and I have yet to have a normanl period, I weight 123, (unless I take the dieretics the doctor gave me to slow down the water gain every day) which I really don't like to take. I can fall asleep sitting up or a 7 every night. And sex? I don't think so!! Make no wonder they use this crap for birth control! Even if it didn't stop ovulation, you just don't want anything to do with sex!!

>>��>>�� I would love to know how long this weight crap continues?

>>��>>�� Anyone?
