  • I was told I wouldn't have a period while on it, but I had such constant spotting, it may as well have been my period! Each person takes to it differently. I was on it for 2 years.

  • I never had my period while I was on the depot shot...I was only on it for 6 months and after I got off of it it returned 2 months later...be careful...it has bad side effects! :) Just a warning if you are thinking about going on it ........
