Experience

I’m happy with how convenient the depo injection is. I fell pregnant on the pill, and feel very safe on this. However, it has massively decreased my sex drive and I can see a difference in my mood and snappiness. I do get cramps when I should have a period, and in the first two months when I should’ve had a period I had the worst clots of tissue and blood.
