  • the Depo can screw you up pretty bad. It took me 6 months before I had a period after I stopped getting the shot.

  • yep if your on some kind of shot that is injected into you, its pretty much what carollynbarnett said, it screws you up, it takes forever to get back on track with your periods.

  • I took depo shots for a while. I quit before after about a year because they gave me migraines. It took my body a long time to straighten out. Wish I'd never tried that!

  • I was on depo for 5 years. it gave me migraines and now i suffer from them twice a week.
    once i got off of the shot, it took me a full year to have a period, but even when i did have it, it was very screwy, it only lasted for 3 days, then i got pregnant.
    i wouldn't worry unless you get other symptoms.
