Im 22 yrs old and have been on this medication for a yr. It was easy to use and effective for it's purpose but I am now getting off of it because of bone loss and menopause symptoms. Way too young for that. I would not recommend this for a birth control.

I have been on depo birth control shot for three years this summer I have never gotten pregnant thank goodness but I have a lot of spotting but mostly only when i work out am stressed or a day after sex it does make me worrie more tho about being pregnant with the nervousness so if you already have mental health issues like anxiety not the best to take depo.
