Sayana Press injection

At first this was perfect for me, but after me and my partner talked we have discussed getting pregnant, but it has been 9 months since I stopped and I still haven’t had a period and we haven’t managed to conceive since I haven’t a clue if I’m ovulating or not. I wouldn’t recommend using this contraception if you have any thoughts about getting pregnant in the near future. It gave me the lowest sex drive of my life and I have gained over a stone in weight since using this contraception. I wish I would have gone with the coil again!
