For a few months....its only a chance that you will stop having your period.
my first 2 months i did not bleed at all but my third month i bleed enough to make up for my missed months.
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
There is no particular meaning to spotting two weeks after stopping Depo Provera. After stopping Depo, some women will have periods return right away. For others, it can take 18 months. The average is 11 months.
all women are different. I was on it two years with not one period. I tried for six months after stopping the depo and finally went to the Dr. the had me do 3 months of birth control to regulate myself. I did get pregnant the first month off of birth control though. did you have a period during your depo?
No, she can only get her period every 6 months.
i was on the shot for 6yrs. w/no period. after i stopped doing the shot it took about nine months for it to return, only to have the same problem. every two weeks i get a period. not fun! so i am looking for an answer too
Going through the same thing. From what I've read it's normal. It can take months for you to regain a normal menstrual cycle.
Yes there are certain birth controls you can take like Depo Provera. But be careful I was on Depo for about 2 years and it messed up my body. When I finally got off it I had a period for 3 months straight. I have other friends who were on it that gained a lot of weight. There are other birth controls that can make you have a period only three times a year like seasonique.
If you are not using effective birth control, you could be pregnant. A woman who stops Depo Provera may get a period immediately after stopping, or it may take up to 18 months. The average is 11 months. Spotting may occur before the first regular period, but you can get pregnant two weeks before your first normal cycle. Take a pregnancy test if you may be at risk for pregnancy.
There is no way to "cancel" Depo provera to get pregnant. It lasts for only twelve weeks. After that, you may get pregnant right away, or it may take up to 18 months. The average is 11 months.
