In the beginning it was really good, stopped my periods and was great to have something in and forget about it. However, what started as a breakthrough bleed ended up being 6 months on my period. My mood was also impacted I was always either crying or angry. One of the worst ones I ever tried

Was fine the first few months of being on it but quickly changed and was awful. I’ve tried a lot of contraceptions and this is one of the worst. While it helped regulate my periods it made them so heavy I was bleeding through super tampons and pads and my cramps got so bad I was throwing up. The moods was the worst part I was so depressed and angry all the time I was always losing my temper or crying and there was no in between. As soon as I came off it I instantly felt better.

Overall one of the best contraceptives I’ve tried and I’ve tried some form of each. Started using to help with endo associated pain and heavy periods. Completely stopped my periods other than the occasional spotting towards the end of the 12 weeks after injection. Found it had no long term impact on my moods and very few side effects in general and improved my skin. Really handy only having to get it every 12 weeks rather than take a pill everyday. Only downfalls are for about a week after the first 2 injections I was very teary and hungry all the time but this stopped once I got used to it. Also had an impact on sex drive and caused weight gain during the whole time I was on it.
