Hi, I'm 29... I got the depo shot for the first time in February. This is my first time using this form of birth control. I am typically a sensitive and emotional person. Since taking the shot I have experienced a host of symptoms; most of which I see other woman have experienced. Here's a list of the main issues I've had since taking the shot:
severe mood swings
loss of appetite
irregular bleeding and spotting
This has been a complete nightmare. I literally feel like a psycho, as if I have no control over my emotions. Prior to taking the shot I was generally a happy person, working out, being active and responsible....I would NOT recommend this form of birth control to anyone! I regret it every day and I can't wait to feel like my normal self again. I thought I was doing the right thing for my new relationship by getting tested and going on birth control, but I realize its better to use condoms or just not have sex. Anyone else experience anything like this?
