  • Not everyone doesn't get a period back. Your OB should have told you that. Some women keep their normal periods, some get lighter or heavier, shorter or longer or none at all... But it's all normal. Nothing to worry about.

  • Not nec. not everyones period stops at the first shot or even at all. When I was on depo it did eventually but after a few shots... HOWEVER.. I (and many others) did not have a good experience with depo ...
    I suggest reading up on it online.

  • When i was on the depo i stopped bleeding but 6 months later i started to bleed like a period. my doc took me off of it and put me back on the pill. I'm 5'1 and 115 .. the depo made me lose 10lbs. my doc said it had too many hormones for my body.check into it

  • only 64% of women stop having periods all together some have irregular bleeding and some continue to have regular bleeding it's different for everybody

  • I stopped bleeding on depo but it took a few months. It's different for everyone.
