Experience

I done my first injection June 2020 as my hospital wasnt giving out depos due to covid. My first time using it everything was fine didnt have anything negative to say about it. It was when i done my second injection i realised my weight was piling on and it wasnt like me at all. My 3rd injection, i had now gained over a stone and i got really down with depression and also anxiety really came onto me. I knew it must have been the injection but desided its easier than the pill as i always forgot to take it when i was on it before, so i done my 4th injection. It was after this one i started to lose my sex drive. I have recently done my 6th injection and i realise that its just not right for me and now realise i shouldnt be putting up with all the side effects just for convenience. Weight gain, depression, anxiety and zero sex drive later ive finally came to my sences!!
