What are the pros and cons to the birth control shot? A friend of mine just got the Depo. The only thing I've ever used is the pill. If at all possible I would like to get away from it. I've heard about Mirena but I dont know how good any of these work. I'd like to know about the different types of birth control you use and what the pros and cons are to them.Answer Question

I didn't like the shot it never did stop my periods and I was on it for over a year it just made them irregular and sometime they were heavy sometimes not so much. The pill I would forget to take every so often and spot so they weren't good for me. I also did the patch but they made me feel sick a lot so I had to stop that one. Can't do much with constantly feeling like I was going to puke. The marina I have now and have had it for 2 years. I don't even think about it anymore because I don't feel it and it really doesn't effect me much at all. I have a period like once in a blue moon. When I do have one it is only like 3 days and it is only spotting. Out of all the bc I have been on I like this one the best.
