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.

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.

you could be. Are you under stress? Are you sure you are ovulating? Those are some other reasons you don't get your period. Also, I was on depo for 6 years, and was not ovulating once I got off it (no period either) (It is a downfall of depo, no period for so long, when you get off it your body can still be outta whack)You should see your doctor they can give you a hormone pill to jump start things for you. Also, depo can take 12 to 18 months to get fully out of your system. When I got off depo and was not getting my period i had sore and swallon nippled and boobs, headaches, nausea, sore lower back and hip pain. All signs of pregnancy, but it was my body going through withdrawl.

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.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

All birth control methods have a failure rate, including Depo. The only way to know is to have a pregnancy test done to determine if you are pregnant.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

the first time i got the shot i was okay on not having my period for the first two months then i spotted until my next shot. I'm due for my 3rd shot, and this time it was only a week-2weeks (i lost track). but its just spotting, not like my usual period.

User Avatar

Yes it takes time to become regular again, that is if you have gotten your period yet. It can take any where from a month to two years before you even get your fist period. Depo Provera stays in your system longer than three months time actually. I have been on and off the shot for six years and the first two times I went off it I received my period within the first two months, and I was on the shot for a year or more. This time I was only on it for nine months got my last shot Feb 05 and surprise I still have no period and it's Nov 06. It depends on the person when they will get there period and regulat. Hope this helps. Yes it takes time to become regular again, that is if you have gotten your period yet. It can take any where from a month to two years before you even get your fist period.

I have the Depo shot you only get the shot every three months. As of how much it costs it would range about the same as three months cycle of birth control pills To get all the information you need regarding the depo shot, click on the website below. If it doesn't work, copy and paste it to your browser. Anything and everything about the depo shot is there. Hope it helps you. http://www.plannedparenthood.org/bc/depoforyou.htm

depo is only considered harmful if used as a form of birth control for more than two years. The only thing weird to your body it might do is screw up your cycle for a few months.

The gestation period for each animal is different. For example Elephants have a gestation period of 22 months where as polar bears one of only 8 months.

After stopping depo provera, your period may return within weeks, or may be delayed for up to 18 months. On average, women start ovulating and having normal periods eleven months after stopping depo provera.Here are some stories from answers.com users on the return of their period after stopping Depo Provera.I chose not to get my most recent depo provera shot and got my period one and a half months after that due date.I was on the depo shot for almost three years. When I stopped taking the shot, it was 15 months before I got my next period.I had taken Depo Provera In 2003. I took it for one year and it took about 3 months for my period to return after one full year of use. In July 2010. I took one shot of depo provera. Nov I did not have a period, December i had the lightest period of my entire life. and Jan I have not started my period. yesterday i had a few spotting dribbles.i was on the depo injection for a year and a half. We decided that in September 08 to come off it and start trying for a baby. It is now June 09 and i haven't seen a period since.I was on Depo for 15 years straight, never missed one shot or took a break until this past April, when I missed my first shot. I decided to stay off and my period started in July. It's November now and I'm actually pretty regular.I was on Depo for 6 years after I had my daughter. I was due for my shot in May of 07. We decited that we were going to try again. My cycle started sept 07 and has been on time ever since.The amount of time that it takes for your cycle to return will vary based on numerous factors. One thing that we often forget is that if you have your last shot in January, then the shot will continue working as scheduled until your next shot would be due. Therefore, you didn't 'go off' the shot in January, you stopped taking it when your next scheduled shot would have been, which would be April. Your count should begin in April.It can take a while before your body gets back to normal after stopping depo. I was on depo for four years, and didnt get my period for five months after stopping depo.With me, i took the depo shot for a year a half and then in dec 04 was when my last shot was due...i didnt take it..and then on feb 2 05 i got my period back....I know someone who was on the needle for only 2 shots..and her period didnt come back for almost a year...so as said..depends on your body.I was on it for half a year and i havent got one in 6 months.I took my last shot Feb '05 and still have not got my period and it is November '05.I got my last shot in March of 05 and its now November 05 and I still havent gotten my period. I spotted once over the summer for 2 days but other than that nothing. When i was supposed to go for my June injection I had them prescribed me birth control pills instead. I asked the doctor if it was normal that I wasnt getting my period yet and he said it is completely normal and as long as I was taking the birth control pills correctly I didnt have to worry about getting pregnant.I was on Depo from June 2003 until August 2005. I was due for another shot in November, but decided t get off. Since then I have had 2 periods. 1 in December 2005 and in January 2006.I have been on the shot for 2 year and I just decided to to off of the shot... I was supposed to get another shot on March 4 of 2008, I skipped it and I came on my period a month after missing the shotI had my son on April 7th 2006 I got the marina put in was on it for about a year and changed to the depo shot was on it for 2 1/2 years stoped taking it in dec 2008 , now it is July 25th 2009 and I still havent had my period.I was on the shot for nine months and decided I wanted to stop. I had one period on time the month after I stopped, but this month I haven't had one.I was on depo for just under 2 years, my last shot was due on 7/10/09 and i never took it. its now December and i have had a very heavy period for the last week and half as if all the ones i missed have come to say hello you can avoid us but only for so long, and its begining to get me very down.I know of people that stopped taking depo and started cycles immediately. I stopped taking depo in 11/09 and still haven't had a cycle.I recently got off Depo-Provera in April and my period started at the beginning of August.I was on Depo for 13 years and also did not get my period during that time. I am now 38 and went off of Depo in May of '07 and starting getting my period July "07. In which, I got pregnant that quickly after being off (Sept."07).I got off my depo shot Nov of '07 and was on my period January 5 of '08, but everyone body is different, it took my little sister 1 year to start her period. It is your body when it is ready it will come down you better enjoy it because when it do you are going to wish it never did.I to had a depo shot in August 2009 and didn't get it in Novemeber. I had a slight period before my shot was even up to be given again in Nov. I got on birth control for 2 months and stopped that as well in Dec. I had somewhat normal periods with the pill. Since being on nothing I have had 2 months of a few drops of brown period and then finally last month i had a massive period as well as this month. So, it all depends on the person.I stopped taking the shot Friday 13th of february 09 and got my period back in a week and along with the cramping so it all depends on your body and youI wanted to put some of your minds to ease. I created this account primarily to answer this question. I have been off depo shot 3 months now, meaning that I received my last shot 6 months ago. I am not on a seasonal birth control, AND I GOT MY PERIOD RIGHT ON TIME. no complications. I loved depo shot and was on it for six years. After reading all the negative post I though I would share my positive experience. Also, after reading all these negative post I myself became concerned, my best friend gave me some great advise that I think can help anyone reading online health post. He said" they wouldn't write about it if everything was normal." Hope this helps :)I was supposed to get my 2nd depo shot 3 months ago. I only had the 1 depo shot back in october 08, supposed to be worn off mid jan. Now it's 3 months since I should have gotten back to normal and had a period, no signs yet. I read alot on the internet that most people who get off the needle dont get their periods back until 6-12 months later!After i stooped using depo my period started just 3 week after. But, not everyone has the same effects. It depend on your bodyI have been off of Depo for 5 months now and in a week it will be 6 months and still have not started my period. I'm not for sure, but most say around 6-9 months after stopping (depending on your body) depo you should start.Just thought i would leave you a note about my experience.. I had only ever had 2 shots of depo and the last one ran out Aug 08, so its been nearly a year since being off it. As for my periods.. about May 09 i came on for the first time, but they werent regular (infact a bit too regular) they were coming every other week without fail for 2 months and then just stopped and from then until now nothing at all. I havent been using contraception as me n my partner want our first baby, i have done a pregnancy test but negative. So a year after stopping depo still no regular periods. Sorry i couldn't be more positive.I came off the injection 6 months ago and I still havent had a periodIt took a year for my period to returnMy sister had her last depo shot in November and got married in December. She wanted to get pregnant which the doctor told her would take her some time. In May/June she got pregnant. Basically like 5 - 6 months after the shot.I was on the depo for about a year after stopping it I got my period a month later I'm hoping to conceive a baby, which by my research isn't looking too hopeful

No. The gestation period of a doe is only 5 months long, not 8 months.

If you are not using effective birth control, you could be pregnant. A woman who stops Depo Provera may get pregnant immediately after stopping, or it may take up to 18 months. The average is 11 months. Take a pregnancy test if you may be at risk for pregnancy.

User Avatar

it would probably mean you are pregnant you should take a test to confirm

User Avatar

The DEPO is notorious for problems with the menustration & hormonal imbalances. I would recommend you see your doctor & have a blood test performed to rule out a hormonal imbalance. If this is normal then the only thing you can do is have a ultrasound performed to make sure nothing is going on with your reproductive system & if THIS is normal then its a waiting game unfortunately.

User Avatar

it depends on a person. i took depo for 9 month but when i stoped i got my period after one moth i stoped. some people says it took them one year. good luck

User Avatar

It's normal, every girl is different. I got my period when I was 11. A friend of mine got her period for one week, and then it stopped. Then a couple of months after that she started getting a normal cycle.

User Avatar

Any concerns about your body should be brought to your doctors attention only they can tell you if this is normal or not for your body hope everything works out for the best Good Luck and God Bless!!
