They took me off them. I started the depo
stayed on that for many years. I wanted off all contraceptives and
so in 07 and got my tubes tied. I am 38 now and I swear, I cramp and hurt for at least TWO weeks before I ever even start. Once I start, it's fine. That lasts a good 5 days. Basically, I get ONE good week out of every month. The rest of the time, I am miserable and so is everyone around me, including my boyfriend. This CANNOT be normal.
