If I get the Depo Shot will I still have a normal period?

Like once a month or how will it change?
Thanks.

  • It's different for each person. I skipped one month and then bled for 6 months straight.

  • It depends on the person. Almost everyone I knew in High School was on it. Most of them stopped their periods completely, but for some reason my BFF and I didn't. I bled for 18 days straight once and it was a heavy flow. My BFF would bleed for 3 days every 2 weeks. I don't know why it didn't work for us, but after the 18 day spell, I decided the good ol' pill was a better idea for me.

  • I was on the pill and then the patch. I had problems remembering. I think I remember doctor appointments better!

  • It use to be that you got it every three months. I didn't have it for three months. Then I would get it again. Unless you got a shot every 3 months.
