Depo-Provera injection

I was choosing not to pay attention to the side effects of the shot, what a mistake. While sex was nice without having to care about a condom, my sex drive was much lower. There is no point in birth control when you don't want to have sex. I had constant bleeding during the whole period I was on the shot and I gained 10 kilos. I hate it because I had a very stable weight my whole life and now my body changed completely and has stretch marks. 2,5 months after I stopped getting injections my periods are not there at all (which is not too bad for me) and the extra weight doesn't go away at all. While the injection is very simple in terms of use, side effects are not worth it. I regret getting it.
