Bad, bad, very bad ~ obviously another "bright" idea from a man! I don't know if that is true or not, but just wanted to VENT it!
Seriously I only took two injections (which hurt! in the fanny!!!) I have had four children and being a fertile mertil, have always had a very strong cycle! When I came up for my shot, I decided to go off of it. The only benefit from the shot was that for the first time in 20+ years, I DIDN'T have a period.
BUT and this is a BIG, BUT~
I was such a b****, that I couldn't even stand myself, I got to where I could feel myself on the preverbial edge and actually got to where I would fore-warn the kids and the hubby to just avoid me that day!! Seriously!
I did not get my shot in October. In November, no period. Than December came. And in the second week I started. And then it went every other week for 7+ days until the end of February! One week off, 7 + days on. And it was VERY heavy, the largest maxie pads available were not enough!
Please be careful and talk with your doctor, you can become anemic, as I did. Just stay informed and talk, talk, talk to your doctor. Good luck to you
