Hi, I'm 17 and have been on the depo shot for almost nine months now. Just before I took my first shot I got very sick and stressed out and dropped between 15 and 20 lbs. I was already little to begin with but now I look anorexic. I've literally been asked that before. I thought that the depo shot would help me gain weight but if anything I've lost even more, at this point I can't afford to lose much more weight then I already have. After several comments about my "anorexic look" and friends making constant jokes about my "lack of curves" I'm ready to gain the weight back and get back to looking (and being) healthy again. So I'm wondering could the depo have anything to do with this? Should I stay on it? What can I do to gain weight?
