Not able to lose weight because of contraception? Watch
I'm on my second dose of the depo injection which is running out in a few days, however, I have been trying to lose weight whilst on the injection.
I've tried eating low calorie and exercising and no matter what I do I can't lose anything. I even gained a little!
I was just wondering if this is common with people on the injection as it's really frustrating!
Is there any other form of contraception other than a condom that I can go on which won't have this effect?
Not sure if the injection works in the same way but if not pills could always be an alternative?
I haven't been eating any more which is the weird thing, been trying to eat less to lose weight, but I guess I'll maintain for now
I'll see the doctor and see what my alternatives are
Thank you for the replies
