how common are problems with depo provera?

my obgyn put me on lybrel because i had bleeding problems but i try to avoid taking it because it makes me moody. so i stopped it completely and got a really heavy period and it stopped suddenly after having sex a lot so im wondering if maybe i could have gotten pregnant? i'm due for my next injection this week so ill have them test me. anyone have a birth control method they prefer over depo? i cant remember something daily or even weekly but dont want something permanent either(i want another child but not now)

There are IUD's which I have that work for some. There is also on that is implanted in your arm that I believe is similar to the depo. I was never good about remembering pills either.

Depo didnt work out for me ... had a solid 9months of bleeding. Im on the Mirena now, which did hurt when placed. But the 1st year was great! No period, maybe a little pms. A year after it was placed, I started havin a little spotting for a bout 6months (may have been due to weaning though). But it seems to be pretty much gone now. I love that it lasts 5yrs. Can be taken out sooner though.

i loved depo the first time i used it, no issues and no side effects. Second time i had some weight gain, about 10lbs, but no other effects or random bleeding
