  • It really varies by person. You may be best off gong to something non hormonal like an IUD.

  • I would advise you NOT to get the Depo shot I've had so many problems when I was on it and only had 2 shots 2 yrs ago and my period was totally out of wack for over a year just got it regular again. They also say that it takes a long time to get out of your system I had been ttc and couldn't figure out why I couldn't and the Dr. said that it could be in my system and take as long as 2 1/2 years to get completely out. If you have any other questions about the Depo shot message me

  • I love my diaphram. Yes, it is old fashioned. It is also hormone free, safe, easy to reverse, easy to use.
