Experience

Switched from Depo injection about 2 years ago as you can use Sayana Press at home. I do have light spotting with Sayana Press that I never had with Depo and the injection area can be a bit sore for a couple of hours after which I didn’t have with Depo. I have reduced sex drive when on any hormone contraception but I wouldn’t come off the injection for the pill as I love you don’t have to take it every day or have any periods.
