I kept using the injection as it felt like my last resort as I'd tried other pills and had side effects I didn't like. However, I had awful vaginally dryness and I think my sex drive was lowered because of it. It did mean I did not have a period which I thought was a positive.

Within a few days the depo Jag make me feel premenstrual, then intensely hormonal and tender like when I was in my first trimester. I could feel my body fighting to try and have a period, but instead ended up spotting for 3-weeks. I was extremely extremely emotional and tender, and bloated. So much so, I took a pregnancy test just in case which was of course negative.


Very negative mood
