Hi, I recently was given the Depo birth control shot

I recently was given the Depo birth control shot last month (April 17th). Now, I’m noticing my nipples are getting bigger and darker. Is this normal? I did have sex during the first week of receiving the shot. I took a pregnancy test, and it came out negative. Why is this happening?

Thank you.

Hi, I have recently changed from the depo shot to nuva ring. i was wondering if this is as an effective method of birth control as depo and i read in the pamphlet that it makes you gain weight. is this true? and if so is there a method of birth control with a lesser chance of weight gain?

Have been on depo prevera shot for three years and just recently got a urinary tract infection. Was taking sulfameth/trimethoprim for antibiotics. I took.two a day for three days and had sex with my partner Saturday and took my last antibiotic on Friday. We did not use a condom and I was just curious to know if my antibiotics have affected my birth control?
