Apologies if a thread like this already exists but I couldn't find one!
I am interested in having the contraceptive injection or depo shot and would like others stories and experience.

the marina and implanon scares me as as the thought of something inserting into my body like that is really scary.

My GP recommended not getting the implanon so I went with the Mirena instead. After the first 3 months of AF all over the place, it's been great since.
