    I had this only for a few months and it works. I only got my period the first month of having it. Then the spotting it little to none. The only down side is the weight gain but that is something I can deal with. Other than that I can say this is a great birth control

    I was put on this medication February 2014. I had it taken out September 2014. Why? The supposed "spotting" was more like a daily water fall. Heavy heavy non stop bleeding. For 6 months. Yes every single day I went threw 4-6 super plus tampons. In the whole 6 months, I had 5 and only 5 days Of no blood. There's was no random spotting as I was promised. Now besides the daily water ...

Other than having a period, I am on my 9th month having this and I don't have much to complain about. Weight gain could be seen as an issue, but Depo sort of started me on that track already.

Then I had a period for 3 months straight! Then I had gotten pregnant, I had the device removed but I ended up having a miscarriage since there was now a hormone imbalance. I also had depression before I got this in and it j ... Show Full Comment
