I've been on it for over a year and I haven't experienced any negative side effects. The only change in my body has been that i dont really get my period now.. just some spotting during the time of the month id normally get it. As long as you are healthy, I wouldnt worry about it..

Good luck! Let us know how it works out... I've only heard extreme reviews about it. It's either the best birth control method ever or the most evil... it all depends on the individual and her personal body chemistry. Hopefully it works well for you! :)

Two of my friends were on it - 1 got no period at all, the other bled for 3-6 months at a time. Both had severe moodiness and low or no sex drive. They were not as pleasant to be around anymore and the 1 was always worried that she was pregnant (b/c she had no period) and the other was completely miserable and spending a fortune on tampons (bleeding all the time.) I'd think twice about other methods before getting the shot.

It varies a lot from person to person... I've heard horror stories but then again I've heard women who absolutely love it. I've considered it myself but I just don't know! I mean a lot of women hate the pill and I've been on that for a long time, so who knows.
