  • I had the depo for 3 years before I got pregnant, and my sex drive was strong, I wanted sex all the time! BUT after I had my baby I got back on the shot and I have NO desire whatsoever, but I'm not sure if it's the depo or just not wanting it due to having a baby 5 months ago and still being in pain during sex.
