We only have doctors available Monday's and Friday's so I might see if I can get in on Monday as tomorrow would be booked already.
This is a good point. I have to take my son up tomorrow for his vax so will make an appointment then.
I can relate to you OP I only had one shot and had all these problems I thought I'd fallen pregnant straight after coming off it! It took about 2 months to be feeling better and about 3 months for my monthlies to reappear since they have I felt great and back to normal. I've had depo in the past and never had this issue. I'm reluctant to use it again now.

It's just so odd. I was lectures about all the side effects of going onto it, but nothing mentioned about coming off it. Most days are fine and I just do my thing but some days it's near debilitating. Like this evening, curled up on the couch in a ball for nearly an hour. I mean if I had to tend to my kids, I could have pushed through it, but it wouldn't have been pleasant. Same with the nausea. When it hits hard, I struggle with it.
I know it's weird maybe they haven't researched possible side effects for coming off. But then it isn't impossible to fall pregnant right away either just rare.
I was the same with the pill. They warned me about all the side effects going on but I always felt FANTASTIC on the pill. Coming off it....terrible!!
Yeh, I was great on Depo. We only stopped because we have been discussing another child and hearing it can take 18 months+ I decided to go off it while we decide, rather than wait another 18 months after we have decided. Figured I could always go back on if we decide no, but now I don't think I will.
That's the same reason I came off it to begin with but now I'm no longer ttc I'm looking for something different. Might just avoid all medical contraceptives for now.
