The brand name is “Depo-Provera” but most people call it the shot. And it’s exactly that – a shot you get every three months. It works two ways – it prevents the egg from ever getting released and also makes the mucus of your cervix (at the end of your vagina) super thick so sperm can’t get through. It uses a hormone that naturally occurs in your body- progestin. It’s great because you only have to think about it once every three months but it does nothing for STDs. It’s super private too – the only people who will know you have one will be you and the person who gives you the shot.
