Depo Prevera? (spelling?)

Well I just had a question, maybe a problem I dunno, here goes:

My girlfriend is on the shot, I think its called Depo Prevera, unless theres another that I'm not aware of, I was wondering if anyone knows what the effectiveness of the shot is, because until I got with her, I had never had sex w/ a condom, and um whoa..... no nut for me

so....... shot + effectiveness/reliability = ?

It is 99.9% effective.

And it's Depo Provera.

Just keep in mind that the shot can have an effect on some women's libido(among other things), so if she becomes a lot less interested in sex, it's probably the shot.

It's highly effective, but the side effects are a BITCH.

I've been with two women who were on it and both dropped it after about a year. It killed their sex drives (both went back up when they stopped using it).

I'd seriously recommend a different method.

I was with a girl for about 2 years, and she was on Depo the entire time. I know because I went with her to get them, and saw the giant bruises from after the shots.
During the two years we were sexually active she had 2 miscarriages, both early term, but obviously happened. I'm not sure if women's bodies are different and it doesn't work as well on them, or if I have super sperm, hehe, but 2 in 2 years was a bit much for me.

my girlfriend has been on it for 2 years now. the first six months really sucked because she just bled nonstop. now it's all good. there really hasn't been any sex drive side effects or anything.

Well a lot of the time miscarriages aren't noticed because they're so early in the term. They're a LOT more common than most people would think. It makes sense too, since Depo Provera messed with the hormones, it would provide a MUCH less suitable environment for the embryo to develop.

Trust me, you really don't want to have to comfort someone who's just had a miscarriage. It's really rough emotionally and not something I would ever choose to do.

While I have no experience with it, Irish, logically I doubt that she would get as attached to a (for example) miscarriage after two weeks than nine months.

Depo is just about the most reliable form of hormonal birth control there is, largely because of there is far less room for human error. I mean, how hard is it to remember to get a shot ONCE every THREE months?? It's so much easier to forget to take a pill every day.

BUT, the side effects are definitely a bitch. I stopped taking it a while ago and will NEVER even CONSIDER getting on it EVER AGAIN.

Also, Depo alone doesn't prevent STD's in any way. You need a condom for that, each and every time. Have you discussed your sexual histories? Had STD tests? You never know, zxello... please be careful.

FOr some reason I found there is little logic contained in a rather hormonal woman who just miscarried at 3 months leaving an obvious baby behind.
