Question:

From New Zealand:

I am a 19 year old type 1 diabetic. I am thinking about going on the depo injection (for birth control) and I am wondering if this is possible with my diabetes, as the local health nurse has expressed some concerns.

Answer:

Depo-Provera is a good choice of birth control for women with diabetes. The birth control pill is also a reasonable choice. You may have to make some adjustments in your insulin dosing, but you may also find that your sugars are easier to control.
