Experience

Within a few days the depo Jag make me feel premenstrual, then intensely hormonal and tender like when I was in my first trimester. I could feel my body fighting to try and have a period, but instead ended up spotting for 3-weeks. I was extremely extremely emotional and tender, and bloated. So much so, I took a pregnancy test just in case which was of course negative.
