The Depo Provera birth control shot is a great option for many women. It is a way of preventing pregnancy that women only have to worry about four times a year, every three months. The Depo Provera shot is also very effective, since there is almost no room for error, as the shot is given in a doctor’s office.

However, many women are concerned about how long it will take for them to get pregnant after stopping the Depo Provera birth control shot. Since the Depo shot is designed to last up to 3-4 months in a woman’s body, it does take quite awhile for the hormones from the shot to leave the body.

Also, many women find that their menstrual cycles and ovulation cycles are out of whack after stopping the Depo shot, and this can take some time to regulate.

It is important that if you are on the Depo Provera shot and you wish to get pregnant, that you try to plan ahead so that you can stop your injections and give your body enough time to regulate itself before getting pregnant.

Be careful when and how you use it

I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.

Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment

Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
