    Dear Katie, I’m sorry to hear that your doctor produced a mistake and put you on Depo injections. You say that you are still obtaining injections? These injections are created from progestin, a synthetic form of progesterone which is used mainly as a method of birth control for ladies who cannot use any other form of birth control. Among the drug’s side effects is weight gain. A single injection lasts for three months. So in case you are nonetheless obtaining these injections, please, please, tell your doctor that you don’t want to receive them any longer. The effects with the drug will remain inside your body for three months, so during these three months, it may possibly be difficult to lose the added weight which you gained, no matter what you do. You’ll find other much more gentler ways to regulate your periods and menses, specially at your tender formative age. Here are some of the negative reasons for not employing Depo-Provera: it can cause decreased bone density which can lead to osteoporosis, depression, increased blood clots, liver damage, headaches, hair loss, leg cramps, nervousness, dizziness, abdominal bloating, and weight gain. For your stretch marks on your stomach, you’ll be able to rub some vitamin E on them. Just puncture a capsule of vitamin E and gently apply to your stomach region once or twice each day. The stretch marks will respond towards the vitamin E should you use it regularly and use it as soon as they appear. The older the stretch marks, the longer and far more difficult they’re to rub away. It’s very best to use natural vitamin E, which can be distinguished from the synthetic form by the following small print and notations on the vitamin bottle: d- will be the natural form, and dl- will be the synthetic form. Use only the d- form which may be the natural form. I feel that synthetic substances have caused enough harm already, and ought to be laid to rest. Discover a doctor who will listen to you, have patience until the Depo drug gets out of your system and body, and continue follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen to get back to your former weight. Please read the posts above to learn a lot more about dieting. Very good luck. Stoffwechsel ankurbeln Abnehmen Stoffwechsel ankurbeln Abnehmen
