I got the depo shot in the beginning of October and have not followed up with a second shot due to severe mood swings. My second shot was scheduled to be December 30. My mood swings have been horrific since I first received the shot in October. My sex drive is gone (and has been the entire time), I suffer from waves of deep depression, and I'm experiencing pregnancy-like symptoms (I've taken several tests and know I am not pregnant). I don't know anyone who has been on this shot before but I want to know if this is normal. I have been miserable since October and I'm afraid the symptoms will persist. Is there anything that I can do to alleviate these mood swings? I don't feel like myself and I'm desperate for help.
