Those of you who get the depo shot have you gotten it done in your arm?

Before it was given on my thigh and it would hurt but yesterday they asked if I would rather have it given in my arm or thigh so I chose arm and it didn't hurt a bit except later then where they gave the shot it was a little sore but not as bad as when they gave it on my thigh.

  • i got it in my arm, found out later its less effective there, which may explain why i got pregnant while on it
