  • I was on it several years ago. I got my cycle regularly for about 3 months, then stopped completely. In hindsight, the lack of period did not make up for the 25 pounds I put on while using it.

  • Yes you do get your period for the first maybe even the second month after you get the shot. it has to take a while to get into your system. im almost on a yr and and you can spot for a day or so, very lightly every so often. but thats very common!!
