Hi Janine

Thank you for writing!

Coming off the Depo shot can be very difficult for some women.

Many women have irregular periods for up to a year as well as nausea, which could explain your vomiting. Weight gain, mood changes and very heavy bleeding have also been reported.

I'm not clear if you have been off Depo for six months or were on it for six months?
