I was on the depo for about 1 year, and I had my period for about 3 weeks out of every month. I just got off of it 5 months ago because I didn't like how I felt on it, then I just missed my period this month, but I have had regular periods the past few months. I don't know if this normal.

I was on the depo shot for 2 years, & didn't have my period at all during it. I got off the depo shot in April 2012 & I started my period a few weeks ago. It went away & then came back like a week later. I really don't know what's going on, but it's annoying. & I would love some input so I don't go crazy!

i never had a period at all when i was on the injection, but when i came off it, it took me 5yrs to concieve! i would never have it again it also caused weight gain and moodyness. i now have the implant in my arm and i dont experiance any side effects. my periods are normal and i will be able to concieve again a month after having it taken out

Hey, not trying to scare you or anything.....but you should discontinue using depo provera. There is a class action law suit against it happening right now, because of the effects it can have on bone health. It apparently causes premature onset of osteoporosis. Ask your dr. about it. I tried the shot when it first came out years ago and had nothing but misery. I had two doses, then bled for 6 months afterward. I spoke to a specialist (OBGYN) and he was against the use of it for most women. On the other hand I had a friend who never had any problems with it, but you still don't know how it will affect you long term.
I spotted for the first 6 months on and off, and after losing hair and developing acne (how embarrassing!) decided no more shots after 9 months. I never got my actual period while on it (that was a bonus) but took another 2-3 months once out of my system to get one.

Jelyn, I was on the depo shot for 4 years and i never once had a period.. I went off in October 2004 and it took my body a year to go back to normal.. I had big mood swings.. Then almost a year after that i got my period back.. So the depo effects everyone very different...

One of the side effects of Depo Provera can be that you don't get your period at all. That's half the reason I'm on it. And yes, other side effects can be moodyness and weight gain, fortunately, I've avoided that.

I have heard and experienced no period at all after my last shot which was three weeks ago. So.. So far I have gone now three months without my period and before they gave me my last shot because I switched Dr offices they gave me a pregancy test and it came back negative..

I got my period after each shot and then would go two months before the next shot without a period. I never had a problem with moody or being mean. The only complaint I ever had was soreness from the shot which comes normal with every shot you get.
If it bothers you that bad I would talk to your doctor.

I got the depo shot before I was pregnant...about a year before. I got crazy mood swings and actually became depressed. Once I stopped that form of birth control, my mood was back to normal. That was the only birth control that effected my mood that way. After that I used Nuva Ring. I liked it. I am now on Mirena.
Oh...and I got my period right away with the shot and every month after.
