Another post got me thinking.
Did you get a period on it?
If your period stopped was it after months or with the first shot?
Thank you.

I was on depo for several years. If I could go back, I would have stayed far, far away from it. It destroyed my sex drive. My period became very erratic. I never knew when I would have one or how long it would last.

I got one shot and never got another because I had light bleeding for 3 months.

I bled the whole time I was on it. It was awful. I will never go back on it.

I got it after my second child was born. I thought it would be easier for me because I tend to forget taking a pill. It was horrible though. I gained soooo much weight . My periods were irregular too.

I've been in it for 3 or 4 shots and I still get periods (and sorry if its TMI but the blood is effing nasty colored) that last for 2 of the 3 months between shots. My gyno told me that if I bled this time when I go back we'll find a different method. Maybe its just time to tie my tubes.

When I was on depo I got zero periods. I might be sensitive to the hormones, though, because I am on mirena now and have zero periods.

Okay. I got it 2 weeks before my period was due and no period. Was freaking out but no pregnancy signs and neg test a week after it was due. So for some that's just normal?

Quoting lady-J-Rock: I had no period while on it.

I had one and bled beyond 3 months except for a week about 2 months after I got it I was taking pain meds for getting all my wisdom teeth removed. The pain meds must have stopped it somehow and when I stopped taking them the bleeding started again until my Dr put me back on the pull a little after 3 months and it stopped three days later completely.
