Depo shot

I take the depo shot as birthcontrol and i got my first shot in October. WHen i got the shot i was already on my period and after getting it i stayed on my period for 2 1/2 weeks then stoped. Well its been 2 months and i haven't had a period since. My doctor said its normal but i was wonderig if any body else was using this method and having the same effects?

  • I took the shot for almost a year after my first was born almost nine years ago. I didn't have a period and it messed my cycle all up. I quit the shot because it made my hair thin out really bad. It just started filling back in a few years ago. depo wasn't for me, but i'm sure it works well for some.good luck

  • I was on the depo shot for a year and didnt have a period at all for the entire year. I was happy. I hate having my period. Yes it is normal not to get a period while on the depo shot.
