  • It can take up to a year for the Depo to totally clear your system, so it can take about that long for your periods to return. They may come back sooner, they may not. Everyone is different.

  • for me the first time i got off it, it took me 3 months for my period to return. i think it all depends on the woman and maybe how old she is. i'm on it again now and i hate that i gained weight but i luv the idea of not having a period especially in the summer time.
