I was on it for a while. I liked it because I just had to get a shot. I didn't like the moods I would get into while I was on it. I was like crazy sad and depressed.

When i had my son in Feb. i started on the depo. shot. The first time i ever got it i bled the whole 3 months. This time getting it...i haven't had a period. It beats buying tampons and well, everything else that comes with the period...I also haven't gotten pregnant while being on it. So, i'd say...it does it's job!

I use to be on it when I was younger and it worked great, I did gain weight on it but it worked. After having my son( who was conceived when i was on the pill ) I thought I'd try out the ring and it didn't work I'm about to have our second child at the end of Oct. I think it just depends on your body.

I know a coworker that did the same and on the second shot she got pregnant with her now to be 4th child. It works for some and for others no. I also knew this girl from school it worked for her but made her gain weight. It just depends on your body. But it is good to try your options. I am currently on the patch. So far it has worked great.
