  • I hated the depo shot my step mom made me get it when my period came back it was HELL I was hurting so bad I bled for so long and I yes I think I had a bout there of spotting for a couple weeks. It's been 10 years since that so I'd ask you r Dr to be sure. GL

  • it can take 18 months to finally get regular again because ur body is so used to the hormone always being there so its gonna take a while.

    I used to be regular light 4 day period every 35-40 days. after depo I had a heavy period 2 days and got pregnant the next month...I lucked out...some women take at least a year to get prego
