I have had one shot of depo provera and my skin has already broken out badly, and i have also gained 7lbs. I find i am eating and craving junk food and i have never had a problem with my weight before. I have decided that i would like to go back to using the pill - i still have some left. I'm due to get my next shot near the end of May. I was wondering when can i start taking my pill again - i have read on some websites that you start to take the pill on the day that you were due to get your next shot but i just wanted to check if this is correct. I haven't had a period since i got the shot and i was wondering if i start to take the pill on the date of my next shot should my periods return after a while or should i just go see my doctor before taking the pill??
