Has anyone had the depo-provera birth control shot?

I just got this today and I wanted to know other people's experience with it. Did you like it? Why or why not? Pros and cons? Thank you!

  • Among monkeys, Lionel Tiger and Robin Fox conducted a study on how Depo-Provera contraceptives lead to decreased male attractiveness to females and eventually to male homosexuality Janet E. Smith summarizes the findings as follows:
