anyone using this form of birth control method??? this method outside of non hormonal methods does not have the potential to cause heart attack, stroke or blood clots.  I don't care about the bleeding, I have used this method before and lost tons of weight and I am thinking of going back.

i wanted too but....after i had my daughter, i was talking with my mom and i had mentioned that i wanted to get the depo shot instead of having to remember to take a birth control pill everyday and she told me that it wasn't a good idea because a lady that she knew had died from blood clots after having the shot, so know i'm too scared to get it, im just going take the pill

Hmmm that is interesting because they suggest women that are high risk for blood clots or heart problems to take depo because it is the only hormone bc that does not have that risk.  However, I guess all Hormonal bc has some risk.  I have just purchased the Today's sponge.  I will let you guys know how that works out.

i had it right after i had my daughter and i stayed on my period from sept 29th to jan, i had so much weight loss, my skin color even changed. i went to the er and was told "oh it might stop in febConfused,  i saw my old doctor and he put me on the pill form of birth control to get everything back to normal, strangely it helped.

i've been on it for 4 years this coming may and never had a problem. i actually started taking BC because i was severely anemic from having a nonstop period (had to get a blood transfusion). the doctor first prescribed pills but they didn't stop my bleeding, but i went on the shot and never looked back since. i've had a coworker who also said it made her bleed continuously, but i heard that for those who that happens to your body needs time to get used to it. i dunno, just what i heard. but everyone is different...

I did it years ago, and I can truly say that it was the most effective method of BC I ever used. I bled for the entire 3 months so that stopped any action. No risk for pregnancy at all.
