Some women do gain weight on the injection. While some women may be protected for up to a year, others can fall pregnant immediately after stopping the injection, so you are not safe on no contraception.

Some women's bodies take up to one year to work the injection out, as it prevents ovulation. Some women do gain weight on the injectable.
