Depo shot

i was under the impression i would still have a period monthly but after getting i did not. then my time to get another dose came up and i waited like 2 days and my period started. after i got my shot my period stopped... is this normal? i am so used to getting a period and eating chocolate... being in pain. this is wonderful but weird.

  • It is normal to not have a period, except when it's time for your next shot.... The biggest problem I have found with Depo is the weight gain that is nearly impossible to get rid of, even after stopping the shot.
