  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru

    it was kinda complicated an rushed wen i got it now i found out sumthin happened to me wen i was drunk the other week an im unsure of its effectiveness

    Some people take the pill to control their hormones/periods, and at least you are protected from pregnancy. Although going double dutch is ideal.

    Pregnancy very unlikely using the injection:

    Is there a chance you were pregnant before you had the injection? If so, you need to do a pregnancy test.

    it is very unlikely but it will not protect against STDs so i would recommend using another forn as the injection is not 100% safe.

    Hi, just fished out thsi leaflet got from school about sex etc. a while ago so hope this answers your questions a bit..

    Depo Provera - an alternative to the pill
    -Progesterone injection
    -Lasts 12 weeks
    -Highly effective
    -Reversible

    Why might you want Depo?
    -The pill is not safe for you to have
    -Dont' want to take a tablet wach day
    -Can't remember to take it
    -Don't want to have periods

    Available from your GP or Family Planning Clinic

    Depo and its effects
    -First injection when you're on a period, then every 11-12 weeks
    -Injection in your bottom
    -Usually stops your periods
    -Can sometimes bleed heavily at first
    -Tend to put weight on with it
    -May make your skin oily

    I'm really not trying to preach because we all do silly things, but maybe you need to lay off the old alcohol a bit?! It must be horrible to have been taken advantage and be unaware of it, and you are quite young. And always always carry a condom in your purse. always. even if you don't plan to have sex. always coz you never know.


    As for girls going on the pill and not caring about getting STDs, I'm on the pill but I always insist on and provide condoms unless I'm in a long term relationship where i'm the first person the guy has slept with.

    :D
