Depotrust- Can I Trust It?

This morning, I have finally decided to consult my Ob-Gyne for the appropriate birth control method to use. I was accompanied by my colleague who’s also consulting for the same reason. Since we are a nursing Mom, our Doctor gave us two options, pills and the injectable depo. Both of us opt for depo however, we need to have our regular menstruation first before we could have ourselves injected with depo. I am quite curious about this contraceptive so I googled it and here’s the result:

Depotrust is a progestin-only injectable contraceptive that gives 3 months of contraceptive protection. It contains medroxyprogesterone acetate, a derivative of progesterone, as the active ingredient. It contains a progestin that is similar to the natural hormone that a woman’s body produces. This hormone is released slowly into the bloodstream.
Depotrust stops ovulation, thins the lining of the uterus and thickens the cervical mucus. In combination, these actions prevent pregnancy.
Depotrust only works for about 3 months. The shot must be repeated every 3 months to prevent pregnancy. After stopping from using Depotrust, normal ovarian functions return after a short time.
 Depotrust can be safely used by breastfeeding mothers.

I do not know how my body would react on this but I will give it a try. Anyway, I still have the other option just in case I am not hiyang to it. How about you, have you tried this? Can you share how you felt about it?

Ayoko na sana pero kailangan eh ayoko pa masundan son namin, kayo naencounter nyo na ba diretsong menstruation?

    hi, just had my first shot for depotrust yesterday. I felt okay, but where the injection was done still feels sore today. It doesn’t have a minor side effect on me like what the box stated such as the (headache, nausea, etc.). It was okay, but then the part not to massage the injection area was the thing i missed reading. Would there be any effect?

  6. Lorie Virata says:

    I got my first shot today, too. This is the first contraceptive I’ve tried. My ob was kinda reluctant pa to administer it to me. Mas may diskusyon sila ng asawa ko about it because of the side effects she discussed but i insisted on it.

    I hope depotrust will work for me. For the older users, any feedbacks po?

    Hi, ang experience ko naman po sa depotrust… ang 1st shot ko po ay last Jan 15,2013. Doctor instruct me na 3 mos. akong di magme mens. makaranas lng me dw ng spotting at if feel ko dw na medyo lumakas ito uminom lang ako ng tranexamic acid. Nag worry lang me now kc as per instructed hindi ganon ang expected ko. bec. nagspotting me ng Feb. 9, feb. 10 meduim, feb 11-13 heavy, Feb. 14 heavy with buong dugo, Feb 15 heavy with masakit na puson (3 days), up to now may emns pa rin ako. mahina na sya kasi iniinuman ko ng tranexamic. Gusto ko lng malama po kung ito po b ay normal pa rin b sa nararanasan kong bleeding at panaka-nakang pananakit ng puson. Hope doctor will read this msge. Tnx God bless you

    ent have a pregnant stage?

  12. crybaybee1126 says:

    I’m a depotrust user for over 4 years now. I haven’t bled that long too. The only things that I can say is that, I’m having pimples every now and then (which is not a usual thing for me back when I was still not into using this contraceptive) and this also has affected my sex drive. But I still have an active sex life with my hubby though. *winks

    Hi po! Just gave birth to my second child this July 2017. Pero yun hubby ko kasi sobrang active talaga sa sex kaya I decided mag inject last month, September ng Depotrust. Napansin ko lang na masakit dede ko every now and then. Pinag cocondom ko nalang si hubby ko para sure. But last October 3 we had an unprotected sex, then sa loob nya pa tinapos. I am really worried since two days after nakaramdam agad ako ng pag duduwal until now. Kinakabahan ako mag pregnancy test. Jusq kapapanganak ko lang. Dami ko naman binasa sa online discussions wala pa ko nabasang nabuntis while in depotrust. What to do 🙁

      Kailangan mong maniguro. Mag-PT ka to avoid untowards incident. If buntis ka, accept it-otherwise you celebrate and be cautious. Try to install My Days apps from google play it really helps. God bless
