Warning for the menz: This is about menstruation.
I've been on depoprevara for 13 years and I haven't had a single issue with it. I've never had any kind of negative side effect. I just simply stopped having periods which was the main goal as my periods used to be awful
This week, I've been feeling out of sorts. I've been headachy and crampy and crabby. I got my depo shot yesterday and today my jeans, which are usually loose, are cutting in to me. My belly is badly bloated. I was up 2 pounds this morning from yesterday. I went to the bathroom after lunch and found that I've been spotting.
<insert string of profanities here>
I hope to all the forgotten gods that I'm not starting my periods up again. They were debilitating
. I read quite a while ago, and of course I can't find it now, that fat stores estrogen and that weight loss can cause that to release. I wonder if that can cause my periods to re-fire even though I'm on depo?
