Depo Provera

I know that birth control affect every woman differently but I was wanting to know if it's common to have your period for almost 2 weeks with Depo Provera?

  • I went on Depo a few different times. I did get a little period the first month, but I also never had the weight gain that a lot of women report getting tho too. What about trying to research it?? How long have you been on it?? It COULD be a first time thing and after that you won't have it anymore... but I would research it more and see what you find. I also know some women who had their period the entire time.
    I know there have been a lot of negatives about it but I personally loved it.... One thing, after my first shot, I went off and it took me a year to get pregnant and they say it takes longer the longer you are on it. (i hope that makes sense.

  • I would wait watch how everything goes during these three months and then maybe switch to a new b/c if this keeps up. It could be a one time thing and you won't get them from here on out.
