Well I am going to go ahead and start the depo shot next week. I really didn't want to do bc but my health is so bad I want to get that in order before I have another little rainbow plus we haven't been doing good with the condoms and I just don't want a oopsie. Anybody had any experience with the depo?
Ugh that's my worry. I don't need any extra weight problems or problems with fertility. It took me 2 years to conceive X and 6 years for the first. I wanted to Nfp but don't wake at the same time for temp taking . Don't know what to do......
I don't have any experience w/ depo but I don't know anyone who has had a good experience with it. don't know if it was through their own fault, like missed appts or not but a couple got preggo on it. others gained weight horribly. I'm looking into getting the Paraguard/copper IUD. The only drawback to that plan so far is that i have to pay for it upfront then be reimbursed the $625 once insurance pays (it's 100% covered by my insurance). I do't really have that kinda cash to front and wait on. My only other non-hormonal option (besides condoms) is the tubal ligation but I don't want to get my tubes tied. My blood pressure has been ridiculous since the pregnancy and I don't think I'd make it through another right now without issues. That and financial reasons are why I need to avoid an oopsie right now.Could the IUD be a choice for you?
