Experience

Absolutely loved being on Depo. I think it did cause a slight weight gain but I was able to lose it eventually. Didn’t experience any other side effects and it stopped my periods completely, which for me was the best thing ever. Only stopped using it as I switched to Sayana Press which I can do at home myself.
