Experience

I like how once the physician is happy you’re doing it right, you get your years supply to take home and administer yourself. A simple text service reminds you when you’re due to inject s oyou never miss it. It’s handy for people that can’t arrange in advance an appointment. My periods stopped which is what I wanted and I’ve had no real issues. I do find it hard sometimes making sure I’ve administered the whole dose but it’s not impossible. I suffer no real side effects, other than zero sex drive which is a bit of an issue but otherwise the best contraception for me.
