Of course: The use of the Depo-Provera shot is irrelevant to the risks of weight loss pills. Please consult your doctor for a proper diet regimen that will result in appropriate weight loss, and a life long habit of healthy eating.

It depends: On you. If the Depo-Provera worked well other than the weight gain, you will likely do well with a medicated iud or an under the skin implant.

Depo: It is a possible side effect but it does not need to happen especially if you eat healthy and exercise.
