Depo works for me!

Posted by: jessie29 on Thu Apr 24, 2008

I have been on the Depo shot on and off for about 6 years. I absolutely loved it! I always had horrible cramps and it was nice not to have them anymore along with the absence of a period. Whenever I decided to stop getting the shot because of a relationship ending, it only took a few months for my period to return. The Depo shot works different for every woman, I never had any weight gain, mood swings or lack of a sex drive. I went to my gyno today to go back on the shot and now I'm just waiting a few days to receive the shot again. If you are thinking about getting the shot, doctors prefer to give it to you a couple of days into your cycle. I highly recommend the shot for the young people, if you're not on any medications that can affect BC, the shot is the most effective....well besides abstinence...but what's fun about that...lol
