I say no to Depo

Posted by: Lisa999 on Wed Mar 21, 2007

I started with condoms and they worked for a while. I tried the shot 2 months ago but I will not get it again. Previously my periods were 3-4 days, light - medium. When I took the shot, I immediately didn't have a period. It was great until I had the mood swings, barely any sex drive, nausea, complete weight gain (and I workout and play soccer every week). Now I'm spotting for weeks. It's not that bad but I like my consistancy before I took the shot. Another friend had her period for 2 weeks straight! I do not recommend the Shot. Plus the idea of having to wait at least a year to get pregnant when I want to just doesn't feel too good. I'm thinking of trying the Nuva ring but not sure.
