Do the common pregnancy-like symptoms associated with depo start and stop or stay pretty constant?

When I first got on depo I was sick the first week. Then I was fine for a week. Now I'm sick again...normal?

It really varies from woman to woman, but there can be some times when you feel fine, and others when side effects are more noticeable. You've only been on Depo for a few weeks, yes? In that case, it's likely that your body is still adjusting to the hormones, and you should notice that things settle down after a couple of months.
