In brief: Depo and Alcohol

Alcohol does not seem to affect the depo-provera or birth control shot directly.
However, the more use of alcohol, the more reduction in inhibitions, the more likely to have multiple sexual partners, and the more likely to have sexually transmitted disease.

In brief: At 19, NONE

There is an epidemic of binge drinking among young women in the last few decades, and such drinking has been associated with many complications, including blackouts with sexual assault, sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies, as well as physical and psychological complications of alcohol abuse.
Safe drinking limits in women are no more than 1 drink/day average, 3 or less at 1 time.
