How soon will I feel normal again after the depo shot?
Yes, it is completely normal to experience irregular bleeding when you stop the Depo. The Depo has suppressed your menstrual cycles, it can take up to 12 months for cycles to regulate again once you stop.
i have been on depo provera for 2 years. after my first shot i did not want to get the shot again . but then after 6 months i started the shot again and have been on the shot since. it is a very effective birth control option.
It is highly unlikely to get pregnant on the depo provera. And if you are worried because you have not had a period in two months that is normal for the depo shot. It is made to stop your period
All women's side effects vary after receiving the Depo Provera shot. It is normal to have disruptions in your normal cycle immediately after receiving it, and for some reason, throughout the entire duration of the shot. It is completely normal to have spotting, no period, a change in the flow of your period, etc after getting the shot. Ask your doctor or gynecologist if you are unsure about any side effects of Depo Provera.
it is normal because i had that happen to me a couple of times while i was on the shot so its normal to have one
Yes its completely normal. Some women are different on the shot. Some have periods some do not.
Yes it is normal, some girls just get theirs, and some don't get theirs. It just depends on your body. You period might slow down and eventually stop all together on this shot. Once you stop getting the shot, your period should return back to normal, depending again on your body.
Yes, this happened to me. It's normal.
Yes, coming off the Depo can cause heavy bleeding.
Bleeding is a normal side effect of Depo Provera
You might have irregular bleeding as your body resumes it's normal menstrual cycle. If you had cramps and breast tenderness with periods before depo, they'll likely return as your regular cycle starts again.
That might be your period.
You were on a depo shot for about a year and a half your period has finally come down you know everybody body is differ but how long will you be on this period?
Should be normal for you. Mine was normal, it took a while for it to return though, and even longer for me to start ovulating again.
I've been on depo for a year 1/2..yes it is okay for you to stop having normal periods after starting the depo shot. although you might have cramping and spotting after three months when its time for your next shot.
it is completely normal. the depo provera shot has a high amount of hormones, it can irregulate your period or it can cause u to not nave a period. it kinda sux though cause u never know when ur next period will be.
Many women have unscheduled bleeding when starting depo Provera. This irregular bleeding decreases with time.
No. Call your doctor.
After taking one depot shot is it normal to have 2 normal periods and then not have one that next month?
Yes ... a lot of people will have their periods completely stop while on Depo. It is considered a normal side effect of the shot.
yes i got mine back the following mont after discontinuing the shot
If you are gaining weight while you are on the depo and then you stop using the depo will you get back to your normal weight?
I have alot of friends that were on the depo shot. They gained about 5-10lbs while on it. After they got off of it they lost the weight. Well, some of them did.
I have the depo shot given in the muscle at the top of my buttock and it can be painful in the area of the injection site, sometimes for 24 hours but it doesn't hurt anywhere in my leg. Hope that helps.
NO- see your doctor
I got the shot on the first day of my period last month and have no period at the expected time this month is this normal?
Yes, this is a normal "side effect" of depo. My menses also stopped after my first shot.
I have has my period for longer than normal while on the shot. I udally just spot but it lasts for up to 2 wks at a time.
I just come off depo shot what are some medicines I can get to get my period back I was on it for 10 months?
There is not a medication that is specific to helping you get your period to back to what it was prior to beginning the depo shot. It can take more than 10 months for the body to return to normal.
yes it can be in some women.
Do you mean bleading like a period or bleeding from the site of injection?
I was on the Depo shot for nine months my last date to get a 4th shot was on Sept 20th but I decided to quit receiving the Depo shot.How long will it really take me to become fertile again?
it can take upto a year or more to become fertile again i hope this helps Some women begin to ovulate shortly after stopping their Depo shots, however many will take 6-12 months before they begin to ovulate regularlly again.
It depends on how long you were on the shot and what your overall health is. The longer you were on the shot, the longer it will probably take for you to get your period again. Once you get your period, it may take several months to regulate itself again. Hang in there and thing should return to normal within 6-24 months.
How long does it take the depo shot to kick in
Took the 3 months depo shot but was pregnant and had an abortion. is it possible to be pregnant again?
After an abortion, absolutely.
Why might your period be irregular for the past three months when you were on the Depo-Provera shot for a year and a half with no period at all?
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.
After I got my first depo shot I had weird craving after about 2 months. My boyfriend thought I was pregnant or something because I was craving the weirdest things and oreos had to be in the house lol. I'm not pregnant and I don't normally crave stuff this bad, so I'm guessing it's the depo that is making me want it.
No. you aren't given the depo shot until you have at least one child. This is because the depo provera shot has the ability to cause infertility.
No it doesn't necessarily mean you are pregnant, especially as the depo shot is a contraceptive, it would be highly unlikely. However, if you are worried, for your own reassurane, take a pregnancy test or acquire some advise from your GP. If you've not had sex or it is unlikely for you to be pregnant at all, then blood spotting is completely normal on the depo shot, and should stop in it's own time.
If you are on the Depo shot then when it is time to go back and get your shot they will tell you and you won't be able to get your shot.
If you missed your Depo Provera shot but haven't been having sex, you aren't at risk of pregnancy. Talk with your health care provider before you're sexually active again if you still want to avoid pregnancy.
I been off the shot for a week i got my period back in a week is it normal to have it back that soon?
I read that it takes 10 months to get pregnant after getting off of the depo shot.
You got off birth control pills and you started depo shot two wks later I had been bleedn for 3 wks and now makes 5th wk is this normal when will it stop?
Dear Reader: It is not normal and I don't have enough information to tell where it is going. Depo-Provera has a web site and help line. I would ask them and possibly also plan a visit with my doctor. Dwight Hi. When I was put on the depo shot, I bled for 3 months straight. I went to the doctor and they told me it was normal. So I wouldn't worry.
Previously very fertile fell pregnant after 1 month twice butnow had 1 depo injection how long to get pregnant afterhad no problems or periods?
The depo usually lasts for 6 months, after this time women need to have another shot to remain infertile. so usually after 6 months you can become pregnant again. However, it can last a lot longer than that, the depo can really stuff up womens cycles and some women find it very difficult to get pregnant again after the depo shot.
Yes it is it is called the Depo-Provera a lot of people call it the Depo shot.
You do not have to get a pap smear to get a Depo shot. These are separate procedures with no connection.
It depends on your body--I got the Depo Shot and it took me three months to return to a normal period after the three month coverage period. Continue to use protection after that time, because your Depo has expired even though you have not returned to normal estrogen production. Also, if you think you might be pregnant, definitely get tested before beginning any new BC. \ Hope this helps.
Yes being physically sick tiredness and feeling run down are all common side effects from a late or missed shot
Is it normal to get the depo shot the day b4 your period is due and then not get your period the next day or could i be pregnant i had sex when i was fertile and my ex came in me and i have symptoms?
it could be a possibility because you probably didnt give it time to settle in your body so go get check out and make sure your not and if your not get back on the depo and wait 2 days before you let him do that again
It sounds like depo isn't suiting you too well. Please go and speak to the person who usually deals with your contraception, and don't don't endure this unnecessarily.
I had the depo shot and it made me go into a 3 month bleeding cycle. my doc said this does happen in some cases. she gave me some pills to help me stop the bleeding and told me that i can no longer have the depo shot. everybody is different. No that is not normal. Especially if you are on the depo provera shot. Either way you should go call your doctor/gynocologist and explain… Read More
I was on the Depo-shot from March 09-September 09 and my last period was in June. I'm not 100% sure why it stops like that but from everything I have read on the subject it is very normal to stop menstruating while your on the shot and also normal for it to takes a few weeks to a few months for your body to regulate itself to menstruate once you have stopped the shot.
The depo shot prevents you from having a period. Its nothing to worry about.
If you are not on your period when you get the depo shot nothing will happen but you will have to use condoms for seven days after you get the shot to help prevent pregnancy ....depo provera only works immediately when you are on your period
