Experience

I’m on my second shot of Sayana Press. This is my first time on a contraceptive injection and to be fair with you, never again. I was on the pill before and I had no complications except from mood swings but wanted something that lasted long and was more convenient as I used to forget to take my pill quite often. I’ve been on the injection for 4 months now and I’ve been bleeding nonstop since. It’s affecting my every day life and there is nothing doctors or anybody can do about it, all they say to me is that it takes up to a year for your bleeding to stop which isn’t even guaranteed, who wants to wait a whole year and bleed through out it?! Such a terrible experience for me and it’s so sad.
