  • I was on it for 16 months.. Spotted almost the entire time!!! I kept telling myself, maybe after this next shot it will get better... Nope. I finally decided enough was enough. I was suppose to get another shot in march, and didn't. I haven't a a period since beginning of April!!! Dh and I joked because we couldn't have sex while I was on depo, so it really WAS the best bc!!! :)

  • I had the depo shot for about 3 years before. During that time, I had no periods at all.

  • I got the depo 3 months ago and had the heaviest period for almost 2 weeks. Which was weird because before when I was on the shot, I had no periods.I am switching back to the pill.
