  • Yep. It takes up to a year for your body to get back to normal.

  • Yeah it can take awhile for your cycle to get back to normal. After I stopped taking the depo shot I had 3 heavy periods in 5 weeks before my cycle went back to it's usual 29 days

  • My periods were really strange after I had all of my kids, it's pretty normal to have irregular cycles for about a year after delivering. If you are worried, by all means call your OB's office and let them know what's going on.

  • I took to always wearing pads after my DD was born. I could never tell when my period was going to start or when I was gonna have spotting, etc. It's very normal.
