  • i was on the depo for a year with no bleeding no nothing for that year i went off it and it took about 8 to 9 months to get my period back and then i was pregnant with in 14 months of being off it. it all depends on your body i know women who came off it and got pregnant imediatly and then those who didnt get there period for a year and still couldnt get pregnant for another year after that.

  • I had a depo at the hospital after I had my baby. I stopped bleeding for only 2 weeks, and it's been expired for a month now.......I'm still bleeding. I will never use it anymore

  • My family (5 girls) all had bad effects with it, two of my sisters including me ended up getting cysts, another didnt have a period for 3 yrs and only had 1 shot. She ended up going in and getting Jump started with a bunch of hormones. Oh her hubby wanted to leave her soooo bad. She was like the moodist prego women you have ever seen.
    Me and my other sisters didnt get regulated until we used other forms of bc like the pill, me was the patch

  • I only had the depo shot once.. .and will never do it again. I was one of the few who was actually on my period the ENTIRE 3 months. Solid. No spotting, no stopping.... it was a 3 month long period. Regular to super absorbancy tampons the ENTIRE time.

  • It took about a year and a half for me to get cycles back after I stopped the depo shot and I was only only the shot for 6 months months (two injections). Once I did get cycles back my cycles were very very short and it was just spotting. IT varies from woman to woman. Just be patient.
