  • my sister was on the depo after each of her boys. the dr. said it works by making the lining of the uterus (what comes out during your period) get very thin, and after you stop the depo shots you might not get a period for a while because the lining needs to build back up again. that's what the ob/gyn told her when she stopped. i think she has been off for about 3 or 4 months and has not gotten her period back yet either and he said that's normal

  • I've been pregnant off the depo before, I miscarried (at 7 weeks) but that was 7 years ago After I stopped it my period didn't return for 5 months. The chemicals need to still get out of your system, take a PG test and find out
