  • It could go either way, but delayed periods after the birth of a baby is normal and depo can stop periods as well.

  • I got three depo shots and didn't have a cycle for 18 months after. I would only recommend that method of BC to someone in a rural area without regular access to a doctor.

  • My son will be 1 next week and I still haven't seen a normal AF, just spotting. The depo might make it stay away or bring it on just lightly. Also if you are nursing you might not see AF for a while.
