If you are not looking for babies anytime soon, I highly recommend depo provera. It is a shot you get every 3 mo. I have been on it almost 5 years now. It completely stops your monthly, so I have not had a period in like 4 1/2 years! Only problem if you take it for a long time (like I have) it can take up to a year to get pregnant once you stop.

I am def not trying to have anymore children - we have a 6yr old & trust me when I say that the stresses of having one child is enough for me, LMAO. I have actually looked into Mirena since we don't want anymore children, but they want something crazy like $800 just for the IUD & that doesn't include the dr's fees to put it in. Anyhow, I have always thought the depo was a good thing b/c of the lack of periods (although I do hate shots prob more than I hate trying to remember to take a pill daily.) Anyhow, my question is about weight gain; have you gained any weight from the depo?? I have heard horror stories about women that have gained like 15lbs from this shot, but I guess you never know b/c some also claim to gain weight on BC pills (I think you just have to watch what you eat b/c the hormones tend to make you want to eat.) Just wonder what your experience was. THANKS!!!!
