I just got back from the OBGYN. Always a blast right? Actually it is. Especially since my doctor looks EXACTLY like Ann Perkins from Parks & Rec.
It also rocks because I get one tiny little shot and my birthing is controlled for a long time. A long old time. It is weird to think that even if I wanted to have a baby right now I couldn't until the year 2015. That is weird. Super weird.
So for those of you wondering, this is why I love Depo Provera shots...
It is completely covered by insurance which means it is cheaper than the pill.
I don't have to take it every day. One shot every 3 months and I am covered for 12-16 months.
If I get baby hungry there is nothing I can do about it until I have had a solid year to think about if we really are ready for a baby.
I no longer have periods that last longer than heck. I'm not even joking. 57 days. My body hated me.
In combination with physical therapy my endometriosis is totally under control. I can live life without taking my heating pad everywhere with me.
My husband probably appreciated me not ever PMSing.
I don't ever have to buy tampons. Budget friendly!
In all seriousness, it is awesome and I would highly recommend it to anyone suffering from anything womanly. You will thank me.
