Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that the depo provera injection is a very good and convenient form of birth control.  Many patients use if for years and love it.  Often there is some irregular bleeding initially when the shot is first begun, but after that most people don't have much more than infrequent spotting.  If you get your shots on time the method is approximately 99% effective.  I DO advise my patients to take a calcium supplement while on Depo.
Good luck!
Dr B
