  • i as on it before baby it took a year and 1/2 before i was able to ge pregnant also got on it again after son was born loved it..then after a year dh got the big snip and i got off again took 1 year and 2 months to become normal. i now get a period every month same time ( yeah thanks hubby lol ) so i would guess over a year before it goes back to normal.

  • how old are you? and your weight? them two factors really are a big factor on getting your period correctly. I was on it since I was 17 for about 6 months I gained alot to 150 so I finally got off and straight to the pill the next month. . oh andd im also 19 at the moment. but soonas I got off the depo shot I had my period within the 2 days I was getting off of it. it lasted 7 days! the next 2-3months my periods were small 4-5 days. and now about the same
