IF I can remember Depo had me bleeding everyday. No weight gain and it was quite annoying trying to remember to go to the doctor every 3 months. 

Mirena is the way to go babes. No weight gain, no bleeding, no side effects just put it in and go and during your annual checkup the doctor checks if the string is still hanging. Then its see you in 5 years.

I only got one dose. Sex drive was non-existent, gained a lot of weight, lost my period for nearly ten months, and the surplus of TRUE horror stories regarding the DPS scared me away from ever considering it again.

I didn't like it, I had it about 10 years ago and I bled for weeks at a time. I lost my appetite so I actually lost weight when I was on it.

After the 3 months, I did not get another one.

Half of my family including me were on that stuff for a long time. We all experienced different side effects. Some bleed forever while some of us didn't. Some gained weight, some didn't. Honestly my best piece of advice is to try it out yourself because no one's body is the same as yours. I've been on Yaz, Depo Shot and Lupron. I'm done with dope! Why do you want to take the shot? I know it sounds like a dump question, but i knkw some folks who just wanted something to keep them from bleeding every month. Good luck though.

I work with some people that live and die for the mirena and IUD. Maybe in the future but for now just the pill is ok for me.

I was on depo for my first few years in undergrad, I didn't experience any negative side effects and didn't have to worry about having a period. I loved it! After a few years my gyno recommended I switch to pills and that's when all my issues occurred. I need to get back on something but not sure what to get.

My cousin was on it and she ballooned in weight. Me and her bf thought she was pregnant. She got off of it, lost the weight and is back to her normal size.

ETA: My friend who had a baby got on Mirena/copper IUD and was good to go. They wanted another baby so they had it removed and had one less than a year later.Smile
