Is the depo shot really that bad? Can someone provide me some info? I need to get back on some kind of bc, and nothing else really seems appealling. I was on it before Gwen was born and never really had any problems until I got off of it. We are not planning on having any more kids, just waiting on dh to get the big V, so I'm willing to take my chances on it messing with my fertility. I do not want to take the pill, because ds was concieved while taking the pill, so I don't really feel its realiable. I can't stand having anything inside me, so barrier meathods are out, and I have heard that IUDs cause really bad cramping, another thing I don't want. So are there any other options available? I'm also not organized enough to do NFP my last dd was concieved when we tryed NFP, on the first cycle that I got after dd was born. Any advice, or good reasons that I shouldn't use the shot? Thanks.
