I am 15, almost 16 years old and I have been on the depo shot for 1 year and I have stretch marks all down my inner thigh, calfs, butt, back of my legs and breast. I have also went from a size 0 in pants to a size 3, going from 116 pounds to 132 pounds. I am so embarrassed by this that I don't wear shorts or bathing suits and its sad because I am a teen this is the time for me to feel confident in how I look and feel about myself. Yes, it does stop periods and and symptoms but in all honesty I would rather have periods then feeling ugly about myself. I recommend coconut oil and retin A cream. (It really works!) I hope this was helpful and think twice before getting this shot.
