Is this much cramping after depo provera normal?

Heres the history: had baby girl this past February. Got Depo Provera the day after she was born and again when she was 3 months. Made me have side effects really bad so I didnt get it again at 6 months. Shes now 9 months and my period hasnt come back yet and I cramp all the time. I have been feeling like I am about to start my period for like 2 months straight but it never comes. Anyone else ever deal with this sort of issue after coming off depo and how long before AF comes back?

  • I dont know for sure but after I had my son I bled the whole 3 months I was on it, then I waited till the bleeding stopped then took the shot again and bled again for the whole 3 months. I had been on it for years befor my son was born.

  • what other symptoms are you having? I mean this can be caused by the shot because of something else that is going on in your body. I had the depo shot for 4 years and never had my period but never had cramping at all! I still had mood swings etc but no cramps.
    Do you have a chronic condition or allergies or intolerances to foods? Where is the cramping? How long has it been...etc
