  • The mini-pill. You can breastfeed while on it.

  • i am on depo and i haven't gained any weight. I actually lost weight being on it. And I like it. No periods. no mood swings and it's safe while breast feeding. But it all depends on your body and what you feel is right.

  • I gained 50 lbs in 9 months on Depo, so I'm with these guys who say no to it. I'm having a great experience with Mirena, and I BF, too.

  • DONT GET THE MIRENA! (sorry about spelling, its 5am here) I hated it and had nothing but problems with it. It began to implant and I had to have it surgically removed. Plus I (and several other people I know) got pregnant on it. Unfortunatly, my baby didn't make it

    On depo, I bleed for 6 months straight, some people love it. but it wasn't for me at all.
