The Shot (Depo-Provera): Testimonials
Currently, I’m dating a gentleman, yep, and we’ve been together for about six months or so. We’ve always had a crush on each other, but we’ve always had another – somebody else, you know? So it was kind of just timing. So, best friends becoming girlfriend and boyfriend story (laughs). I take Depo-Vera, which is “the shot,” as some people like to say. And I get it every three months, usually in my buttocks area. I like that I don’t have to worry about it. Like it’s every three months, I pop in for ten minutes, bam, done, you know? I don’t have to worry about every day taking a pill or changing something. Every once in awhile, you know, I get a pregnancy test, just because I don’t get my period, so it’s kind of like, you know, I don’t know. But, you know, I’ve never been pregnant. The things I like about Depo is that you don’t really have to worry about it. You just go to the hospital every couple of months, get it taken care of, and then you’re done. And another thing is, is that I’m always protected. So it’s – it’s always a backup, and I don’t really have to think about it. So it’s kind of like my immune system. I have a birth control system inside me (laughs). Hi. My name is Elektra. And I’m 21 years old, and I use Depo-Vera for my birth control.
