Hi ladies, I've been on the Depo Provera shot for just over a year and I'm noticing it's really hard to lose weight on it. I'm on Weight Watchers old Flex Plan, and had no trouble dropping pounds the last time I followed the diet. I've read that the shot can cause serious weight gain in some cases, and although I technically haven't gained weight, I'm really thinking the birth control is making it tremendously hard to lose. I haven't had any other negative side effects as opposed to some other bc I've tried in the past except for the inablility to lose this weight.
My next shot is coming up (once every 3 months) on my birthday and I'm seriously contemplating going off the birth control to see if this is whats hidering my weight loss. Has anyone had anything similar happen? Do you think going off the birth control is a good idea? I'm a little conflicted, thoughts and opinions always appreciated!!
