Depo takes about 12 months to leave your system. Everyone womans body is diffrent from the shom. Some women get their periods throughout taking the shot, some just bleed a little and some just dont get their period at all. But it can take up to a year to get your period after coming off the shot. I know this because I just got my period today for the first time after being off the shot for 5 months. I started worrying about it and I went to see my doctor and she said it was completley normal. And just because you get your period does not always mean your obvulating either. Your body takes a couple more months after your first period to get back on track.

your body is still adjusting to the hormones that are from the Depo shot. It takes 3 months minimum for all the hormones to leave your body just as it is when you are still on Depo and have to have another shot every three months. Give it another 2 - 6 months to go back to normal.

Sometimes you can still get your period even when you are on the depo shot but it should settle down after a few more months of being on it, some women have periods and some don't it depends on the person, but mine stopped after about 4/5 months. If you have any worries you can always ask your doctor, but it is normal to have a period on the injection. I hope i helped x
