Just thought I would tell you, that since stopping the depo I have lost over a stone. I didn't realise that it made you gain weight.

I knew, was warned about it as it increases your appitite. I have had the other problem and gained weight since coming off. Did it take long for you to notice the difference?

I have been off it for 8 months now, once my periods came back and it was out of my system the weight fell off.

don't do it grin <ducks boot thrown in this direction>

Good to hear there is hope, counting months down to weight loss.

I didn;t put any weight with depo. Not everyone has the same side effects.
