I was suppossed to get my shot in August, but I didnt me and my husband want another child so I didnt get my shot in August my last period was in July, how long after depo does it take for my period to return? No Im not pregnant my husband has been away on duty since May.

It is different for everyone.. I searched and searched to find a somewhat clear answer but there just isnt one. My last depo shot was 4/12 so it wore off in 7/12, while I was on the shot.. I spotted the entire time and there wasnt a day that went by that I didnt. Now that I am off it, I dont spot.. I had my first period that lasted for 10 days at the end of september, 6 days after I stopped I started full on period bleeding again... and thats where I am now. so.. It is different with everyone... and i only had 3 shots..
