No period after stopping the Depo shot?

I had one depo shot after my son was born and totally hated it. I bled for 2 1/2 months solid. As soon as it wore off I went on the ring. I took the ring out (the equivalent of taking the placebo pills if you're on the pill) on Thursday and today is Monday... still no period.

YES I have taken a pregnancy test, and it was negative. I don't feel pregnant at all. I'm not asking you to tell me if I'm pregnant, I hate those questions lol. But does anyone know if it's normal to miss a period after going off the shot? I feel silly bothering my doctor this early, I'm only 4 days late.

  • Yes, it's normal. I didn't get my period after going off the Depo for about 6 months. By the way, I never had any bleeding at all while on it.

  • Whew! You ladies are lifesavers! I wish my doctor would have warned me about that. I'll probably still obsessively pee on sticks for a while though lol.
