Would you rather buy diapers or get a shot?
Birth Control is the most common method people prevent getting pregnant. The depo-shot is a very popular way of birth control. The shot is given in either the buttock or the upper arm. You get the shot four times a year.
The depo-shot is a long-acting form of progesterone. Progesterone is a hormone that is produced inside a woman's ovaries. This works by having Progesterone prevent ovulation, the release of an egg, making her not be able to get pregnant.
Even though birth control prevents pregnancies it does not protect against HIV. 3 out of 100 couples will get pregnant even while taking the shot. Not every body type reacts to the depo-shot the same. Side effects such as: weight gain, dizziness, depression, acne and much more are all possible while taking the shot.
