I took the depo-provera shot instead of the pill after my baby was born and it doesn't lower the effectiveness and I don't get my period anymore (you're not supposed to, maybe spotting). You only have to get it every 3 months, and my OB-GYN said that all the hype about losing bone density is more of a concern for young women. Anyway, try to find a doctor that will give you the shot if possible, so the pill doesn't effect your lamotrigine levels. From the research I have read, it does...I can't recall if it increases plasma levels or decreases...check it out or ask your dr. R
