its a birthcontrol shot that you get every 3 months in your butt. Works good for some and not others. i was on it for years and never had any issues but iv heard others say it was horrible so its not for everyone.
Its a form of birth control that is in shot form. Its a large dose of hormones that (like the pill) keep you from getting preggo... it is taken every 3 months and can (in some cases) eliminate your period.
I was on it for 3 cycles... it made me a wreck. it brought out post partum depression and made me have my period for the entire time of the last cycle. I quickly switched off of it and on to the pill.
I had the exact same experience as MamaKat. when I went for my follow up I told the dr "Of course I can't get pregnant! I've had my damn period for 3 freaking months! I'm not having sex!" If you're at all sensitive to hormones, I would advise against it.
What about a diaphragm? They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible.
