I'm allergic to spermacide myself and got pregnant on the pill, so this is my best choice and allows my husband and b/f to go bareback w/o worrying.
Actually I was thinking about that but have never met anyone who used it to ask about it. Depo caused major bleeding, weight gain hair loss and NO sex drive. Hubs said it was the best birth control because there was NO change of getting any to get prego LOL. Think I should talk to the doc about Mirena.
