Depo shot?

How many ppl get this and do you know of anyone who got pregnant while on it? Would this be a good idea or not?

  • What about a diaphragm? They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; you won't gain weight, get depressed, or lose your libido; your periods won't be affected. They have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible.

  • On Depo I didn't get pregnant, I was bleeding 24/7 and gained LOTS of weight, I would NOT recommend it!
