  • You're not pregnant. Depo can screw up your cycle if not stop it completely after prolonged use. You should have been informed of this if you read the little pamphlet they send home with you after your first depo shot. It's not just there for decoration. Read the material sent home.

  • I got the shot on a military base and all she told me was it would stop my periods and it did for 6 months. Now everything has gone crazy I didn't get a pamphlet I got a shot in the butt and a see you in 3 months

  • The shot will stop your pd in most cases. That's why I am on it. I bled every other week after having my daughter. It still let through a couple randoms pds that first 6 mos. But it works the day it is injected. As long as you did not get pregnant in that month that it lapsed then you're fine.

  • Yup that depo definitely messes your cycles up what your going through sounds about right. But never take medical advise from a chat forum. Trust your instincts
