  • i had been on it for almost 2 full years when i went off it in june...i was due to do it again on june 15ish and decided that since i heard it take a while to get back to normal i wouldnt do it again cause we plan to ttc soon. just two weeks ago i finally got what seemed like a very light period. So i hope i can call it one was much lighter than i remember my periods being..(its been about 3 years since i had one). So from june to now it took me to get it.

  • well I was on depo from 09/04 to 02/08 and i have had maybe 2 periods, but they weren't what i would call a normal, cause it lasted like one day. I have yet to get a regular period. which suck cause we are TTC. and not having a regular period makes it very hard to tell when i am Ovulating. Sorry i cant be of more help. but if you find out. let me know cause i have been wondering that same thing

  • LOL! I was on the depo and had nothing BUT bleeding....I would never recommend anyone to get that evil thing.

  • My bestfriend has been on depo for a long time and when she started it her period stopped. Shes had one but that was because she went off it for a little bit. But shes never gotten her period other then that

  • I was on it for close to 3 yrs and it took me 7 months to get my first one and when I did start OH MY GOD I thought I was dying! Had to call Dr to get something for the pain and I was soaking 2 pads an hour. Layed in bed cramping like no tomorrow for 2 days. After about the third day things evened out and my periods are normal now. Was very rough.

  • I have been off Depo about a year and have had light spotting for a couple months but not even close towhat I would call a period.

  • I was on it for 2 years and never had a period. It started back up about 4 months after my last shot.

  • I was on it for 16 months and never got a period during. After my last shot, it was about 2 months before I got a period. It took me 9 months to conceive and we had never had any problems before.

  • A NORMAL period probably 9 months after I stopped. But My period never stopped when I was on it. I had a period 24/7/365 on that stupid shot.
