Depo sucks. I was bleeding for 2 weeks every two weeks. I gained like 30 lbs. Ive been off of it for almost 2 years, and im still messed up.

Neither! Bc is terrible for you, has bad side effects, puts you at risk of all kinds of complications and increases your chances of breast cancer. We use the rhythm method and I take charge of my fertility on my own. If a woman can track her cycles and use back up methods during her fertile time, there is no need for manmade drugs. We don't even use back up methods. We just do pull out in conjunction with watching my fertile time. It has worked for over 5 years, unless we have DTD inside during ovulation and I'm a very fertile person.

I've done depo before, more than once. Some women have negative reactions to it, but all it did to me is make my period go away.

depo sucked bad for me, i had all the symptoms of pregnancy except a cute baby at the end, i even gained 20 lbs in one year, and after that I've never been able to get back to my original size

Agreed. It's terrible I gained 40 pounds with this and have had trouble ever since.

Please explain the rhythm method?
