Injection and pill at the same time? Watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    I got the Depo-Provera injection a few weeks ago as I was having some depression around the time of my period (the intention of my doctor being to lessen or stop my periods completely to get rid of the depression). However, it leaves me with a bit of uncertainty as to when or if I'll have my period, so I've been taking my old Yasmin pill at times when I know I definitely don't want it. I've just been thinking that it might be unsafe, as both are hormonal, so if anyone has any experiences of this, could you help me out? I was also wondering if it'll actually work or if so far it's just been luck? Thanks!

    TLDR; Have the injection and sometimes taking the pill, wondering about safety & efficacy.

    Ask your GP.
