Depo-Provera injection

I took the depo shot once. The hot flashes and crazy night sweats were comparable to menopause. My pillow would be soaked in sweat in the morning. I took depo to prevent pregnancy for a short period of time after my 2nd child. It took 2.5 years to conceive our 3rd after just 1 shot, whereas my other 3 pregnancies were extremely easy to conceive.
