  • When I had one dose of that shot I bled for 4 months straight...then the remainder of a year I was on again off again each month STRAIGHT.

    I would never recommend it to anyone.

    Hopefully you'll return to normal before I did. It was a full year...

  • OH how I hate the Depo Shot. :( I also had random, heavy periods that lasted weeks at time. And how fortunate for me, it also made me eat like there was no tomorrow and I gained 30 pounds. Woo. My periods went back to normal as soon as I stopped the shot and went back to the pill. To me it just wasn't worth it.
