Ok so the contraception was ok for me. I gained a healthy weight (which for me is something that I’ve been trying to do for the longest time). I didn’t have to worry about buying pads every month, neither had to worry about getting pregnant. However the side effects weren’t worth it,the migraines still happened,the back aches were still happening and on occasion she would be dry. I am no longer on it now as I didn’t want to be on it for any longer than year just because it can effect your fertility,I’m still waiting on a period (haven’t had a period in 2 years) and boobs have become very tender since I’ve stopped. The risks of the injection causing brittle bones was a major factor as to why I stopped getting it too.

I was put on the combi-pill in secondary school/college years and it was to help regulate my periods which it did but I kept getting extremely bad migraines the first day/just before my period came and I would have to have the day off and stay in bed in the dark. So once I explained this to my Dr we both agreed that I would come if it and switch to a different pill. Which I did but that wasn’t any better so then that lead me to getting the Depo-Injection
