  • off depo shot when will my period come back!? Xx

    its been nearly or over a week since i was due my second depo
    i didnt bleed only spot a couple of times on the depo
    this was my one and only shot ... iv been getting mild cramps and lots of discharge sorry for tmi
    but im wondering with it been my only shot when would my period be likely to come back
    i want to go on another birth control but want my body to have a normal cycle before i do because i was on the coil
    for 4 years then had depo the same day the coil was removed and want to a normal period just for a few months .. i didnt think id say this but i want a normal period haha
    any way any advice appreciated
    can any one share there experiences on what happend while coming off the nasty depo shot! thanks XxxX

  • I've known people who started the month after they quit depo, and others who didn't have a period for up to 6 months after. A friend, who was on it for 10 years, was periodless for 6+ months after going off the shot. It sounds like your body is readjusting. Give it some time.

    • Since you only had one shot it probably won't be long. Probably a couple months or less. It is possible though to not have a period for many months to even a year when you come off hormonal birth control of any kind but it's less likely when you haven't taken it long.
