I'm 25 years old and have been on the depo shot for three years! Had to get off of it this past December due to getting blood clots from being on it. I had a period in December for about two weeks and have only had spotting since then. While I was on the depo though I got periods for a cupple weeks then have spotting then go months with out a period at all! I'm wondering how long it takes for everything to go back to normal!

I was on the depo shot years ago. Never had a period while I was on it and didn't have one for several months after. I finally had to go on the pill and it still took about 3months before I had one. I would ask your doctor what he or she would suggest if you are worried. Good luck!

Thanks called my doctor and she told me to wait a week or two and she will order a pregnecy test just to make sure I'm not pregnet. She wasn't sure when I'd get my period completely back since I had a period when I was on the depo and ur not suppose to have one while on it.
