My boyfriend doesn't want me to change to other birth control. His telling me they not safe, only Depo is safe. I been bleeding since, I have children, they older, we don't want any children.
Depo isn't 'safe' if you've been bleeding for that long, especially if it's heavy bleeding. You'll become anaemic (iron deficient), if you haven't already. That could be causing your weakness.
You need to see your doctor to discuss your options. Take your H with you if he's interested.
When you say 'Safe', do you mean protects you against pregnancy? It's certainly not more safe in terms of health risks, compared to other hormonal contraception. They all have their associated risks.
