DMPA and Weight Gain?

Plenty of time in the lengthy list of explanations, pricing, alternatives, fall back instructions, finally is the possible side effect of WEIGHT GAIN mentioned when discussing most hormonal contraception. But does it come with a set of barbells to tell you to get busy? No. But it could, or should, or at least a diet plan to follow. A group of researchers at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte NC have discovered that even thirty minutes of education by a dietician right before that first Depo-Provera shot actually led to a bit less weight gain than no counseling at all. But the disturbing news: yes, both groups did gain some weight. Now I want to know what sort of weight? Fat? Waist weight? Weight of going off to college?
