Experience

I was on a pill before hand which was working for me – no periods etc, doctor encouraged the injection, I bled for 6 months continuously. Eventually came off it, my old pill didn’t settle either and have bled for over a year since the injection. Worst decision. Stick to what is good for you despite encouragement from others.
