    I'm on sulpha and the pill, no one metioned to me about this I hope your gp is wrong lol. I have thought about more permanent contraception but i'm only 23 didn't know what they would do for me?

    Hi Calhorn do you know what dose of depot you get every 12 weeks i had to come off it because of the side effects coming down from it. Any concernrs like the pill or whatever you should consult the Rheumy or Rheumy nurse.
