Does the depo shot make you angry?

Yes it does. Although people get different effects from it, it gets me angry and annoyed over perfetic things. Along with other side effects; hot sweats, irregular bleeding and sore breasts. Its worth a try as ure protected against pregnancy for 3 months and the symptoms wear off after 12weeks as it is out of your system. If your thinking about getting the implant get the depo shot first as it will have the same effects on you as depo, except you have to have the implant in for at least 6months so you will be stuck with the side effects.

How long am i pretected for if ive missed your depo?

Actually, you have 10 days after your missed shot before the injected medicine wear off. I was on Depo-Provera for a year and a half. I missed my shot that was scheduled on May 5....I called my doctor and she said that I have to schedule another appointment before the 15. As long as I did that then I shouldn't get pregnant, but during that time, to be on the save side I should use some form of birth control til my appointment time. I'm not a doctor so if I were you I would just call my doctor to make sure that you can reschedule another appointment.
