Depo-Provera injection

I was on this most of my adult life as I was worried about the inconsistency of the pill as different GPS advised different things. However I’ve realised since stopping that it had made me very dry (sex has been painful for years) and low libido. So I’ve moved to condoms.

Experience coming off Depo-Provera injection

I am now much less dry and able to have sex more regularly as it is far less effort because it is not so dry and painful. My hormones are back (more emotional) but manageable. I feel worried about using condoms only but feel that is the only alternative as otherwise it’s painful sex for life
