Experience

Coming off this now after finally realising symptoms weren’t due to my anxiety. The injection is good if you can’t remember to take a daily pill or don’t like interrupting sex to put on a condom but the depression and loss of sex drive aren’t worth it for me. It’s also the only hormonal contraceptive you can use if you are on some anti epilepsy medications which is the reason I stayed on it for so long.
