   Ok ladies I need some help. I am ready to start trying for my last baby but I haven't had a period in a while. My youngest baby is almost 14 months, he was exclusively breastfeed and is still breastfeed but eating food now also (of course). Well I wasn't one of the lucky moms who didn't get a period while BF I started getting it when he was six months old. Well I wasn't ready to be prego that soon so I got the depo shot when he was about 8 months. Had a period and some spotting the first few months of the shot. Well the shot ran out Jan.6th and I still have not had a period. I talked to the Dr. that gave it to me and she said that it can run out two weeks give or take but it has been two months now so I should of had a period by now. I know that it can take a while to get your cycle back right after getting the depo shot but I only took it once so shouldn't I be getting it by now?? Any help or advice appreciated. Thanks

 OMG thats the last thing I wanted to hear. I knew I never should of got that stupid shot. I was crying when she gave it to me because I knew I was making a mistake by getting it. But my husband kept saying he wasn't ready yet (to start trying for another baby)so I was trying to be fair to him.

yeah. I never liked that shot. The doc wanted to give it to me after I had my daughter and I wouldn't get it for that reason. We just used condoms and pulled out LOL Not the best form of BC but I can't take the pill.

depo is terrible! I took it for 1 year and didn't get pregnant for over 5 after I stopped.

we were doing that too..lol.. But i'm kinda pissed because you would think the doctor would of told me more info , especially since I was sitting in her office bawling. I guess it's my fault though I should of researched it more myself.
