    How long will I have to wait to be able to lose weight after ceasing Depo-Provera B.C. shot?

    I was on the Depo-Provera birth control shot for almost 2 years, and stopped taking it almost 8 months ago.  I'm still gaining weight, and cannot lose weight, no matter how much I exercise and watch calories.  Do you have previous experience that you can give me an estimation as to when I should be able to start losing weight?

    You could lose weight at any time, depending on your diet and exercise regimens.
    I know with Depo most women will gain weight (For some this can be a good thing lol) however now that you're done with the shot, and wanting to be more healthy, it won't hurt anything to get on a diet and be more active.
