... trials on other types of birth control meds. they all brought me back to the depo privera shot as my prefered type of birth control, way to many side effects from the other types of birth control that i have tried. I cant really remember the names of the other types I have tried out. I am wondering if there are any important facts about birth control and the one I am currently taking that may help me with selecting one for long term use, that would be a healthy choice, or if this one is just fine? I am really trying to make a healthy me with strong knowledge to support it!
