  • Yes, just about everyone I know who's ever used it! I don't know why they even still market that shot as birth control.

  • I know of 2 out a a bunch who have used it including myself. Remember you still need to discuss w/ your doctor how to protect yourself and for what amount of time if you switch birthcontrols. Whether you go from the pills to the shot or the shot to the pills, the protection coverage may have a small lapse. Also remember no birthcontrl is 100% and your body may react differently to it than someone else's. I have known women who have had tubal litigations and still gotten pregnant so it isn't a matter of anything but the fact that everything isn't always effect.
