I was on depo for 16 months, and spotted almost daily. I was suppose to get a shot in march but decided to go a different route for bc. Never since stopping depo, I've had no period, no spotting... Notta. We are waiting until I get my period so they can place my iud... My question is, after stopping depo, how long should my cycle be off, and should it even be messed up since I never stopes while on it?? My dr doesn't seem worried, so I'm not, just wondering how long you had to wait for AF to come back after depo...

  • I was on Depo for 4 years and never had a period when I went off I had one for 13 months, just the opposite of you, In that 13 months I also had a baby while on my period, so be careful while waiting.............I personally would ask about something else to protect you since you stopped the depo. I did not even know I was preg until I was 3 months

  • After I got off of depo I was all screwed up. About 3 months after I completely skipped a period and it really threw me for a loop lol. It could be awhile

  • I got pregnant right away (within a month of when I should have gotten it) so I never got it.
