  • How long did it take? I was on depo for 5 1/2 years. I got my last dose in Oct and was due for my nest dose in Dec but didnt get it. I had very light sorta like break threw bleeding in early May that only lasted a couple days but nothing since then. We want a baby and now would be the perfect time!

  • I was on depo for 4 yrs and my last shot was last June. My OB had to give me some medicine to actually get it started and it helped me get it started. I just started Lightly bleeding yesterday morning but today has been pretty heavy like it was before i ever went on depo...i just hope i can have normal periods again. I have another OB appt. Wednesday. Have you been to you doc at all Mrsmamaj?

  • No I havent gone into the OB yet because I read on the depo website it could take up to 18 mths, so I wasnt too worried about it yet... but maybe I should get into talk to someone! Thanks

  • It took me 18 months to get my period back after I went off depo years ago, it is normal, but a pain if you want to ttc. Congrats I hope you get pregnant soon!!!
