I'm not sure if I have endometriosis but I have been on depo before. I took 2 shots and it was 6 months of hell to be honest. I did gain a lot of weight; probably 15 lbs. My mood was beyond terrible and I was mean! If you decide to go on it I hope you don't have any of the issues I did. Wish you the best!

I was on the Depo shot for 6 years and only put on a couple of pounds. I loved it! No period on nothing for 6 years. The big down side to it and no doctor told me this again for 6 years. Depo shot can cause cysts. I had kidneys infections almost every years due to cysts. Finally a doctor told me this and I got off the shot and haven't had issues with my kidneys since. So if you are prone to cysts you might want to weight benefits with the negatives.
Hope this helps a little.
God Bless, I have decided not to take THAT Route........
Good. I've heard nothing but negative things about Depo.
I suppose it's effective at preventing pregnancy, and that's about the only good thing that can be said about it.
My daughter-in-law took it, and developed psychological problems that actually required medication (or at least, it worsened existing problems to the point that she needed to be medicated).
Once the Depo wore off, she began to feel better.
