Is this possibly my period? what do you think....

I was on depo for a very short period of time. 2 SHOTS Feb & April. "Did not go back for a shot in JULY" Discontinued the use because I wanted to conceive. In august i went for a check up my doctor said it may take a few more weeks to a month for my body to go back to normal, because i was experiencing some bleeding throughout august the bleeding finally stopped on the 19th of august and i was trying to conceive by september 16 i experienced some brown dark brown spotting it went away 2 3 days later and now RECENTLY oct 1 i think i got my period back is started dark brown and then got heavier by saturday im going to the doctor tuesday if it dies down by tuesday wednesday then i think it might be my period .. not sure yet.. ugh just fustrated because i want to have a baby and plus i was thinking since i was only on depo 2 months then it should leave my system faster i been eating healthy and drinking lots of water .. so yea

  • probably period returning to normal. Brown is probably the result of left over blood from the shot.

  • I can't be on any hormonal BC it just messes me up. I'm okay. It wasn't life threatening, it just wore me out.

  • ok this was informative im almost sure its my period because i really am trying to conceive so we will see how long this bleeding last if it dies down by tuesday ill know for sure. NO MORE depo for me i think DEPO and IUD R ALL BAD for ppl who havent even conceived yet. but im praying ill be ovulating after this bleeding ends. all my other friends stopped depo and got pregnant right away
