I have been using birth control for almost a year now but I've only had th nuvaring. I've been wanting to try the shot because the ring has become difficult and annoying to deal with. The only problem I have with the shot is the whole gaining weight part that everyone complains about. I really don't want anyone to notice if I do gain weight and I really don't want to gain weight in general. I also really dislike shots but I'm tired of the ring and I don't want to take a pill everyday either. I don't know what to do. Should I try the shot or not?
