  • I am waiting on mines two I am going on a year with no period. I believe you can go to the doctor and they can give you something to start it back up.

  • Let the doctor put u on birth control pills take them until your priod comes on then get off. That's what I had to do whenn I was on it and wanted to get pregnant.

  • I believe it can take up to a year before you get your period. The depo shot is not my choice, bad thing!

  • I am having the same experience. I have read it can take 5-10 months for normal menses to return after stopping depo. It's been 5 months for me and still nothing, my doc said not to worry until it's been a year or more, then test for what the problem may be.

  • Yikes, I got mine back like 3 weeks after when I should have got my next shot, and pregnant right after that...I'd be calling the doctor or gyn and asking! I do second using the pill to get your period back though, then ttc.
