Is this normal for the shot (birth control)?

Last Tuesday I got the shot for the first time. I had about 5 days left til my period (I was on my last pack of pills), and I haven't started yet. Is that normal when you get the shot for the first time? They made it sound like I should have a period this month, but starting next month I might now, but I might have misunderstood.

  • Every persons body reacts differently to the shot. some people never get a period after the first shot and some people can actually have continuous periods. when i got the shot the first time i didnt get a period after that til i got off of it 3 years later..

  • I was told I had to get the shot while ON my period - so I did, and never had it again til I skipped getting it again.
