question about depo shot and blood pressure

Hi i am a 40 yr old that just had my 5th boy 6weeks ago. My obgyn just gave me birth control pills for a few months till i get tubes done. I am a smoker, and have controlled high blood pressure due to meds. My family doc said dont take them even for a day! I asked family doc about depo shot and he said the same about that, but every where i have been reading on internet says women with hbp and smoker can have the shot. sometimes i think these docs r ,, well anyway,, really could use some advice please.
I had the depo shot 9yrs ago but had alot of bleeding , but really would like to try it again.

                     thanks so much
