I have been on Depo Provera since I was 16 (almost 17). I am now just about to turn 23 and recently decided to get off of the shot. I was wondering if anyone has experience with doing this. How long does it take for the effects of the shot to wear off? I have read can take up to 18 months! Is it normal to feel like you are losing your mind to raging hormones? Also my face has been breaking out recently - is this a side effect? It has been about a month since my last injection was due - is this only going to get worse? Any input you may have is greatly appreciated.
