Has anyone here used Depo-povera? I started using it Aug 2006 and near the end of jan 2007 I started gaining weight as soon as I noticed I started eating better and being in the military I excrise every morning with my unit, but even after that I countinued to gain weight until I reached 150 lbs and I'm only 5 ft so 150 is quite a bit for me. My problem is being in the army I have to take a Physical fitness test and be and meet a hieght and weight standard. I haven't been able to pass the PT test if I fail it two more times I get chaptered out of the army (I get kicked out). The 25th is when I'm due for my next shot (which I'm not going to get) so The stuff won't even begin to were off until then. My biggest problem though is the doctors don't think it was my birth control that caused me to gain weight they think I just got lazy. So I have no way of putting off the PT test and the height and weight until I can start losing the weight. I guess what I was wondering is has anybody taken depo gained weight and then able to lose it once they stoped taken it and if so about how long did it take. I was also hoping I can get some lose some weight and not your job vibes?
